Personal competences

Patients in medical rehabilitation centres who are not able to return to their job after an accident or illness need support for reintegrating into social and professional life. This group of persons will be encouraged in the course of the EduCoRe project to identify the types of further education they need in this specific situation to improve their employability. Furthermore, personal competences will be developed and strengthened during the counselling and training process.

Relevant competences include among others:

  • Computer skills
  • Communication competence
  • Dealing with conflict situations
  • Recognition of differences (personalities)
  • Coping with strong emotions
  • Personal working style / style of leadership
  • Avoiding stereotypes / prejudices
  • Personal strengths and weaknesses
  • Behaviour in stress situations

Strengthening such inter-personal competences are to help the learners to increase self-confidence and security in interacting with other people, and thus, to feel well in society (again).
