Abstract

The report is the first project result of the Neet prevention in Educational systems through positive Future vision Enhancing Learning and teacher Education (NEFELE) Erasmus+ project. The chapters provide a theoretical framework of the project giving methodological landmarks that can be useful to teachers for enhancing adolescents’ career development. In the current scenario, characterized by digitalization, youth unemployment and sustainable challenges, it is even more difficult for adolescents and young people to answer the question “What do you want to do when you grow up?”. During schooling, teachers have the critical function of “scaffolding” student career transitions. Nevertheless, teachers are not adequately trained during the Initial Teachers Education (ITE) and Continuing Professional Teacher Development (CPTD) courses. From this idea comes this report. The chapters provide an insight into the existing psychological and pedagogical literature on the key role of teachers in adolescents' career choices and offer insight for teacher interested in helping their students to plan their futures.
