  1. 1. NEWSLETTER NUMBER SIX APRIL 2014 ABOUT THE PROJECT This project will be an opportunity to guide students to identify their capabilities and skills and will help the organizations establish a guidance methodology. Most of the students who are on the edge of selecting their ways for their future education are unsure and indecisive about which occupation to choose and which school offers the best options. Sometimes, the Vocational Guidance they receive is inadequate; therefore, they don't know which career opportunities they have in front of them. Any wrong decision that they could take could affect their Life Long Learning Process negatively. To avoid such situations, this project aims to develop a methodology to guide students through a wide range of opportunities for their further Vocational and/or Educational Training. 1.
