Career decisions

Making suitable career decisions is important for everyone, but persons who are suffering from physical deficiencies after an accident or illness have to cope with a particular challenge.

These people often have difficulties to return to their former profession, to the labour market and/or their social life in general. The time they spend in a rehabilitation centre for obtaining medical treatment can be used for making decisions on the next professional or educational steps. Due to the range of life- changing aspects caused by their new personal circumstances the affected persons need support in this career decision process.

This is why EduCoRe offers professional educational and career counselling and training to patients of medical rehabilitation centres in Austria, Germany, Italy, Denmark and Slovenia. This tailor-made service supports them to cope with their precarious life situation.
