CASCAiD Ltd has an established reputation for and expertise in working with organisations internationally to produce successful careers guidance programs for other countries. Our approach relies on strong partnerships with public bodies and local software or information companies.
Systems are now available in Scotland, the Republic of Ireland, Denmark, Belgium, Slovenia, Italy, Croatia, Canada and the USA. All these systems are widely used and, in some cases, have become the de facto national standard for computer-assisted careers guidance. A number of these developments have been directly funded by EU projects.
CASCAiD works with local partners to help deliver the very best guidance systems to suit the requirements of guidance professionals and users in the local context. Our career matching system has been incorporated into broader systems in North America and Scandinavia through partners in Canada and Denmark.
CASCAiD’s applications are developed using reusable software components that can be linked to new databases and interfaces to offer bespoke solutions, especially for new international systems.
The advantage of this approach is that it delivers a careers guidance system that meets the requirements of the national institutions and the people they serve by building on our expertise in other countries.
It can also be developed as requirements change or are added to. Careers education programmes can be developed with bespoke style and context for users around this system. Such systems have been deployed in Scotland, the Republic of Ireland and Belgium.
Our ICAS (International Careers Advice Software) methodology provides a common platform to deliver bespoke versions of our PC software on CD ROM. A local careers database and interface are added to the modular software to give a fully working careers guidance system with a much reduced development cycle. ICAS systems are being used in Slovenia, Italy and Croatia.
Much of our international work is as a result of or supports careers guidance development projects. We have worked on EU-funded projects in Belgium, Italy, Slovenia and Croatia by providing software tools and also by contributing our expertise, built up over the last four decades.
