Use of the Start to Can website

  • Start to Can is being developed with young people in mind to facilitate the transition from school to work, but can certainly also be implemented more broadly for young people in general and in different contexts such as education, social context, leisure time, youth work, etc.
  • By using this website, the young people are encouraged to self-reflection and self-realization by using ‘I will – I can – I do’. They are encouraged, without any obligation, to further develop their different skills and to formulate their goals, strengths and challenges through exercises, tips and information and learn to lead more fulfilling life.
  • This online tool is preventive in nature and cannot be regarded as therapy. The user is always responsible for their own health and should take timely initiative to actively look elsewhere for help when he feels the need for this purpose or if he is in a state of crisis.
  • The Start To Can web application is in a test phase which will end on 31/12/2021. Based on the test results, the deployment of the 'STC tool' will be further fine-tuned. In the test phase, the STC tool will be offered by GTB and the school as a test environment. GTB acts as the data controller. There is no connection whatsoever with the electronic data processing or the pupil monitoring system of the school. The student decides for himself whether certain results, insights are shared with the teacher, mediator and/or coach.
