Universidad Francisco de Vitoria (SPAIN)
Increasingly our students come with a very poor process of vocational discernment in relation with the profession that they have chosen.
The absence of a vocational suitable training and guidance in schools and universities and the fact of a social pressure pushes our students to choose professions with greater job opportunities have as a consequence that young people choose their career mainly by utilitarian and hedonistic values.

This type of mindset, strongly established in our society, does not allow our students to choose a career that answers their real vocation.
We want to present how we hold this social need by personalized learning, through the subject "Personal skills and competences” and their vital figure of the "mentor"; and with a learning by doing methodology.

Our subject consists of a regulated accompaniment program, whose curricular objectives are included in the teaching guides of the different grades, adding the complete program of the subject, a total of six ECTS.

Then we will describe the different blocks that make up this subject, as they are included in the teaching guides.

In order to meet the above-mentioned, our university proposes a subject called "Personal skills and competences”(HCP), which main purpose is to go along with our student in the path to:
- Acquire personal knowledge. That means that our students discover their strengths, opportunities, weaknesses, threats, vocation, vision and mission.
- Look deeply in themselves, the others and the reality.
- Learn how to accept their limits and overcome with the other.
- Discovery that they are unique and unrepeatable, Don called to donate.
- Discovery that the classroom is called to be a learning community and how each one should personally contribute to that.

In that sense, the aims of this subject is to go along with our student on their own maturity path and discovery of their vocation and their actual response in their university environment.

This subject is developed in two different and complementary areas:
1. The classroom, where we develop personal competences in community; competences like: communication, leadership, negotiation, team work and time management.
2. The mentoring, where we develop personal competences individually; competences like: personal knowledge, deeply look, don, vocation, mission, goals, proactivity, and personal project development (personal, academic and professional).
