  • E-Learning

When choosing “Mein optimaler Kurs” (My Ideal Course), one can insert preferences such as the price/service, and the qualification of the trainer etc. Results are then displayed which correspond with these preferences.

  • A detailed and thorough catalogue of criteria (including user instructions hosted on the website).
  • Relevant information in regards to adult learning and experiences is also offered (including relevant links on the
  • website).
  • If further information is required, a forum is also available.


The Prometheus project addresses the need for career counsellors and guidance practitioners to also consider these challenges and looks to aid in making the counselling process more relevant to the needs and attitudes of a new generation of digital natives by providing an online platform with peer networking opportunities and offering a repository of best practices and online guides and toolkits for counsellors.

The purpose of the e-Book is to help professionals from the field of career counseling and guidance in order to implement innovative practices and, in this way, be more effective in practicing their occupation and helping their clients.
