In December 2013 our Leonardo Transfer of Innovation project called Teaching Entrepreneurial Approach was launched, adapting teacher training into Hungary that assists in the education of entrepreneurial approaches and competences, in cooperation with an Austrian and a Bulgarian partner.
In this project the trainings have two stages, the first group led by the trainers of our Austrian partner organization and the second one already under the guidance of the Hungarian trainers.

Developing vocational training in Career Education (CAR-E)
In 2014 we managed to accredit, being the only in Hungary, the license of the international GCDF carrier consultant training. The Global Career Development Facilitator course is a general training in career counseling that prepares its participants for a work with several target groups in various environments (this can be career orientation-correction counseling, organizational career management etc.).
The program started in the summer of 2013 with a strong debut circle of professionals, where we established the testing and naturalization of the GCDF license and put down the foundations for the stakeholder circle in Hungary with the participation of experienced trainers and coaches working throughout the country. Then in November the first training began with a group of 15 consisting of people working in several higher education institutions and career offices nationwide, followed in January 2014 by a group of secondary school teachers concentrating on secondary school work.

From February 2013 we accomplished our 16-month development competition as consortium partners of the Regnum Marianum Catholic Community Association.
We provided three kinds of counseling service within the project (Education counseling; personalized counseling; Online labor market counseling – assigning a new forum for the latter: we operated a blog as well) during the entire time frame of the competition, in addition training altogether 15 groups of 8-14 members in 4 topics (Time and task management; Conflict and stress management; Labor market information training; Family and work).
The contemporary training provided theoretical knowledge and practical experience in the field of life-supporting career orientation for students that were motivated by the commitment to the success of their own career to serve as a model in this development for their fellow students in higher education. The topic was approached with a professional focus, the personal blocks were processed especially along those elements that touch upon the circle of career-building key competences.
Mikszáth Kálmán Secondary Grammar-Technical and Vocational School (Balassagyarmat) organized a career orientation camp (TÁMOP-3.3.10.A-12-2013-0062) and we participated in the elaboration and management of the group sessions.
We provided the career orientation focused competence development tailored to the needs of the students (50) and mentors (5) at Mikszáth Kálmán Secondary Grammar-Technical and Vocational School.
In addition, we organized our own career orientation camps for 2 years for underprivileged young people (250), helping them become a community through social media boards, as well as operating a blog.

IKSZE with its professional partners was the first in the country to have worked out and won the accreditation of online counseling training. Thus our portfolio got richer with yet another gap-filling service. We plan to use this accreditation to provide a professionally established background for this kind of work of mental health professionals and other helpers that are interested in the topic. The 30-hour training summarizes the most important knowledge about the methodology of online counseling, also providing a possibility for practical preparation.
