 Abstract
Under guidance and with cooperation of NBCC-International, the Institute for Education and Sciences,
Lisbon, is developing the first Career Counseling and Management program incorporating GCDF
training in Portugal. Expectations for attractiveness and success are great, as the labour market in
Portugal is in need of innovative and proactive approaches to replace old placement practices.
Concurrently, there is the need to provide professional certification to all those interested in working in
this area but that currently hold a variety of degrees. The program will bring together a multidisciplinary
approach with emphasis on the practicalities of finding employment in a growing economy.

 Rezumat
It is then ISEC's ambition to provide to all those interested access to professionalization in
Career Counselling and Management in Portugal, through the offering of a Bologna second
cycle program of study, following an international established standard, and thus similar to
others that might develop in Europe. Our students will be offered the acquisition of a body of
specialized knowledge, access to professional activity regulated by ethical and social
responsibility principles, membership in a professional group that will work according to the
highest standards of training and qualification, and they will be able to maintain a critical and
reflexive attitude toward professional practice.
