Alumni and career development throughout the life cycle
Name of the Project: Alumni and career development throughout the life cycle Project Number: 01-2018 Project Lifetime: 1st of September 2018 until 30th of June 2020 Project Coordinator: Instituto Politécnico do Porto (Portugal) Type of Project: Parceria com a indústria

Project Summary The strategic approach to alumni’s career development needs, throughout the life cycle, provides a valuable and unique framework to guide alumni relations. Within this framework, potential students/candidates, as well as students, are already considered as pre-alumni. Additionally, the distinction among career-life stages provides a useful outline to the alumni relations field. At the same time, this framework allows Higher Education Institutions to better prepare students and graduates to effectively navigate their working lives. This project aims to research alumni relations practices and its contribution to facilitate career development.

Project Summary The project aims at the development, promotion and mainstreaming of a Set of Matrices of Gender Neutral Testing. These Tests will improve equal opportunities of both genders in educational and professional performance, especially also as these tools will be available for free and so many organisations will have access. (at the moment many organisations who cannot afford standardized tests are working with a kind of self-made testing forms, so there might be big differences in quality too).
