    Post-graduate studies at Vistula University are the perfect solution for those who want to develop professionally, or pursue a hobby, in their chosen field. If you would like to work as a career counsellor, then the Career Counselling and Talent Management with Elements of Coaching programme is ideal for you!

    Over the course of the studies, you will discover the principles governing the career counselling market, both for counsellors, and their potential clients. Not only will you learn to give individualised career advice to your clients, but you will receive such advice, yourself.

    Vistula University emphasises the practical applications of the taught material, and this is why, over the duration of 240 hours of courses (or 360 for the three-semester option), you can expect numerous workshops on facetoface and phone counselling; – these will resemble authentic counselling sessions, conducted in real time.

    The Career Counselling and Talent Management with Elements of Coaching programme has been designed to best prepare you to work in career counselling, career coaching, or as a talent management specialist. You will be taught by practising professionals, which include certified trainers and consultants, utilising tools, such as Spadochron, MBTI, TTI Success Insights, Career Direct, Personality ID, and ICC. These tools are invaluable for career counsellors, as they give scientific insight into your client’s personality type. This, in turn, makes selecting a matching career much easier.

    After graduating from the Career Counselling and Talent Management with Elements of Coaching programme, you will acquire the qualifications necessary, in order to become a career counsellor or talent management specialist. If you choose to complete an additional, third semester, you will also be able to become a guidance counsellor, suited to working with youths.

    As a graduate of this programme, you will have the skills necessary to:

    • Measure your client’s preferences and aptitude.
