CRITICAL THINKING FOR SUCCESSFUL FUTURE CAREER. PRACTICAL APPROACH:
Training Programme. Training Manual

Teacher's Training Manual is a guide that helps those involved in teacher training, both at pre-service and in-service level to implement the integrated and specialised programme "Critical Thinking for Career Education". The Manual gives ideas about the planning and preparation stage of giving courses for teachers, ideas about how to deliver the course as well as the encouragement of reflective practice – mainly through a process of self-evaluation. This Manual also includes the necessary information and knowledge one needs of the area – it identifies some of the competencies, the knowledge as well as the skills and attitudes one needs to implement the project successfully. This is done in the form of notes, articles, examples as well as references and a glossary of the main terms used. The Manual also makes reference to the current situation, both with regards to research in the field of education and employability and education and critical thinking, as well as to the current issues that have to do with employment in Europe in general. The Manual identifies a number of future visions: this is not a closed ended project, but one that opens up a hundred possibilities to teacher trainers, teachers as well as their students.
