How does JOBS work?

How to learn JOBS?

By introducing task based learning approaches and useful education contents, the students are guided toward the right choice of their future profession. Through a transcurricular approach the students are going through 7 different booklets during the whole school year:

• The students solve the tasks presented in the booklets on their own.

M 1: Jobs!!! Investigating into job biographies of different persons M 2: Me and my strengths. Analyzing my competences, interests and personality M 3: The world of JOBS. Exploring a box full of surprises M 4: Job opportunities. Discussing possibilities, chances and risks M 5: Ready for the JOB! Preparing for our Job exploration M 6: My Job exploration! M 7: JOBS Fair. Processing and presenting the exploration results

• The students learn more about themselves and how to value their own capacities. (life skills) • The students search for employment opportunities, analysing economical conditions. • The students collect materials in a JOBS folder. • The students get in contact with businesses, companies or public institutions offering jobs in their region. •

The students watch the businesses, collect data and present their own findings in the JOBS Fair organised at the end of the school year.

What is the JOBS Toolbox?

What is the role of the parents?

The toolbox is a set of instructions, worksheets, instruments and checklists on which the students have access when they are not familiar with a certain method or technique.

• The parents, as an influencing factor in the school and professional future of their children are informed about the project activities.

It helps the student on: • how to gather and search for information • how to sort their information

The parents support the students on their path towards a successful professional career by being interested in what they do, by taking their time discussing with them and by listening to them.
