CCJ4C European Career Counselling Guidelines for Staff Working in Criminal Correctional Justice System
The project aims at developing a strategy for Career Guidance for prison staff, with the support of technology. The aim to promote the concept of “learning prisons”, is particularly remarkable in CCJ4C, where all involved actors bring equal experience in a lifelong learning approach for the benefit of two particularly vulnerable groups: staff, who live in a continuous state of work-related stress, and of course prisoners.
CCJ4C has value no only for the target groups, but also for the justice system and for the whole community. It is based on a strong collaboration between direct end users (prison staff), employers (prison administrations), workplace (prison), and other stakeholders (companies and NGOs). Innovation is strong in the project and partnership, addressing one of the most neglected environments and its corresponding needs. Few EU projects have been developed in this field and none so far about Career Guidance for prison staff.
The project is gathering partners from eight EU countries: CPIP – Centrul Pentru Promovarea Invatarii Permanente TimisoaraAsociatia (Romania), Penitenciarul Timisoara (Romania), Bremen Senate of JusticeandConstitution (Germany), CTGM – CezaveTevkifevleriGenelMudurlugu (Turkey), The National Trade Union of PrisonPolicemen (Romania), IPS – INNOVATIVE PRISON SYSTEM Qualify Just – It Solutions and Consulting LDA (Portugal), BETI – Baltic Education Technology Institute (Lithuania), York Associates (United Kingdom), CEIPES – Centro Internazionale per la Promozionedell’Educazione e lo Sviluppo (Italy), ICPA – STICHTING FOUNDATION ICPA OFFICE IN EUROPE (Netherlands).
The Center for promoting lifelong learning – CPIP is a non-governmental, non-profit institution active in the educational and social field. We devlop national and international projects on various social and educational topics.
