DigiCards: Digital Competence Cards for counselling

We believe in educational and career counselling that uses digital tools to provide its clients with a counselling process that is sustainable, relationship-oriented and tailored to their needs.


Career guidance faces new challenges with the digital transformation, especially with the increased use of AI and new technologies. At the same time counselling thrives on the relationship work between counsellor and client.

With DigiCards, we are enabling the digital evolution of a central method in educational and career counselling – working with competence cards. With the development of digital competence cards, we are providing a tool that supports educational and career counsellors in their daily work with their clients in a practical and easy-to-use way.


Two main goals


  1. To design a user-friendly and tailored digital competence cards tool, which are relevant for labour market, social inclusion, and personal development.

  2. To support educational and career counsellors with DigiCards in dealing with digital technologies and the use of digital methods for daily work practice.  

Main activities and outputs


Development of digital competence cards for educational and career counselling

For a practical solution for the use of digital competence cards, it is important for us to involve educational and career counsellors as experts in their own work. For this reason, we are conducting a DigiCards focus group in each project partner country to identify needs, requirements and relevant information on the use of digital competence cards. In addition, we will conduct two interviews with renowned experts from science and research in order to include future developments in the labour market and counselling context at international level in the development of the digital competence cards.


The DigiCards competence handbook

The use of digital competence cards also requires customised guidance and a playful approach when using digital competence cards. Therefore, we will provide a competence handbook in English and German to present tried and tested approaches in methodology and didactics to support the professional use of digital competence cards.


Networking and DigiCards events

After a successful pilot phase, we will present the results and the DigiCards toolbox at networking events in Austria and Belgium to increase the reach of the use of digital competence cards in educational and career counselling. In addition, there will be an international event in digital format at the end to bring together educational and career counsellors from all over Europe, present the DigiCards solutions developed and celebrate the success of our project together.
