Specific course of Advanced Postgraduate Course in Job Orientation
The Advanced Course in Job Orientation, organised by the CIXUG with the support of the Regional Ministry of Economy, Employment and Industry and the Ministry of Labour, Migration and Social Security, continue to develop the specific training curriculum for the training of personnel dedicated to job orientation, delving in a specialised and particular way into relevant, current and exciting aspects that allow the acquisition of new skills for the performance of their professional work in the best possible conditions.
University of A Coruña’s title
For this reason, the course it is indicated for people who have passed the Postgraduate Specialization in Job Orientation in any of its editions, or for job orientation professionals who want to deepen their specialization, as it addresses some of the content already introduced previously, but the level of depth is even greater, in view of the consolidation of competences and the definition of strategies and itineraries for its practical and immediate application in the daily work of the participants.
Therefore, the aim is not only to consolidate competencies and incorporate new ones but also to achieve an immediate applicability that is reflected in daily performance of the people who take part in the advanced course and, by extension, the oriented people they work with and the results they achieve in their active job search processes.
The Advanced Course in Job Orientation has the following main objective continue developing the specific training curriculum for the training of personnel dedicated to job orientation, providing specialised and specific in-depth training in relevant, current and interesting aspects that enable the acquisition of new skills for the performance of their professional work in the optimal conditions possible.
Therefore, it is not only consolidate skills and incorporate new ones, but to achieve one immediate applicability which is reflected in the daily performance of the people who take part in the advanced course and, by extension, in the oriented people they work with and in the results they achieve in their active job search processes.
Continuing with the approach that is maintained throughout the training scheme, it supports the actual progress of the three fundamental aspects that have been worked on in recent years:
- Methodology and techniques for Open Job Coaching performance.
- Support and advice for self-employment and entrepreneurship.
- ICT strategies and tools for open job orientation
In this way, a continuous contribution is made to consolidating the three essential perspectives of both the orientation model defined in the decree on the SNE’s standard portfolio of services and in the Open Job Orientation model defined by the Regional Ministry of Economy, Employment and Industry for Galicia.
This advanced course is oriented to the following profiles:
- People who have obtained the postgraduate title of University Specialist in Job Orientation, as a result of having passed the Postgraduate Specialisation in Job Orientation.
- Job Orientation professionals who want to deepen their knowledge of the specific contents covered in the course.
Note: in filling the available places, priority will be given to people who have completed the Postgraduate Specialisation in Job Orientation and, as a second criterion, the order of registration will be used.
Important note: personnel who are currently performing orientation tasks under the ORDER of 10 January 2019 establishing the regulatory bases and the public call for the granting of subsidies for the hiring of technical staff to carry out job orientation activities in the 2019 financial year must indicate this to the Technical Secretariat of the course when formalising their enrolment so that they can coordinate with the technical services of the Regional Ministry of Economy, Employment and Industry the management of their schedule on Fridays when there are face-to-face sessions during the duration of the course, as additional help to achieve maximum benefit from the course.
Technical requirements for tracking
As this is a blended learning course with an important component of e-learning through the CIXUG Moodle platform, it is essential that participants have a computer with:
- The up-to-date version of your browser (preferably Mozilla Firefox)
- Access to the internet
Since many of the formative and evaluative of the advanced course require access and interaction through the network, as well as the creation of digital and video artefacts; also remember that the contents of the different subjects will not be downloadable until the end of them, given that their visualization on the platform will also be taken into account as a criterion of use.
In addition, and given the critical use of ICT tools and new technologies applied to employment management, participants may be required to install specific programmes or plug-ins on their computer, which in any case will be free of charge. Likewise, to make participation and optimal use of certain course activities possible, participants may be required to register on social platforms or networks, creating real professional profiles.
In the same way, participants should come to the face-to-face sessions with a personal computer or, alternatively, with an equivalent mobile device (tablet or smartphone) that allows access to the internet via WIFI and interaction with the Moodle platform and the different tools used, as some of the proposed tasks will require intervention throughout the session with other services and spaces.
In any case, the specific requirements that each teacher needs concerning their activities and the instructions for downloading and installing them will be published on the Moodle platform of the course sufficiently in advance to enable their correct installation and availability.
The advanced course involves 27 hours of face-to-face training, to be held on Friday afternoons (4:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.) and Saturday mornings (9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.) in Center for New Technologies Galicia dependent of the Ministry of Economy, Employment and Industry, located in Santiago de Compostela.
The training is completed by adding distance learning to the classroom sessions, assessment and revision activities and the students’ work to reach a total of 150 hours that constitute the course.
The face-to-face sessions will develop practical workshops and sessions to consolidate key concepts, resolve doubts and effectively influence the knowledge acquired, with an evaluation activity for each of the areas of specialisation that make up the course.
