Following the success of the 2nd Level REACH+ Career and College Preparation Programme, CareersPortal has now developed the MyFutures+ programme, to support adult guidance resources.
REACH+ has been in operation for 8 years. Over 400 schools across the country are using the REACH+ programme. CareersPortal works closely with guidance counsellors, supporting them in their work and listening to their ideas in how to deliver quality guidance services. As a result of regular consultation and inputs from the 2nd level guidance community and from the REACH+ Advsory Group (made up of Guidance Counsellors who work in schools across the country) the programme is continually updated and improved.
Consultation with guidance counsellors also revealed a need to develop a programme to support the work of adult guidance counsellors. To support this need, CareersPortal created the MyFutures+ programme to cater for adult career guidance resources.
MyFuture+ is an innovative ICT adult career learning and development resource. Through a web-based career file, it aims to assist individuals to explore themselves in relation to career, education and employment opportunities available in Ireland. It is suitable for use with young adults and adults from the age of 16+ in both a one-to-one and group guidance context.
CareersPortal have recently completed a pilot of the new resource in assoication with the NCGE. To find out more about MyFutures+ you can read the article below wich has just been published in the Spring 2018 edition of the NCGE News.
