Online Self-Help for Young Danes

In: Career and Career Guidance in the Nordic Countries

Abstract

To support young people in Denmark who are making decisions about their future education the national Education Guide portal (Uddannelseguiden UG.dk) offers tools for information and career exploration along with the online eGuidance (eVejledning). The general purpose of the online tools is to extend career learning activities beyond the activities facilitated by a career counsellor. Focusing on the self-help tools ‘Min Gymnasievej’ (My way to Upper secondary) and ‘Mine styrker’ (My Strengths) this article describes the challenges of the digital transformation of analogue career guidance tools and of their usage by the counsellees.
