Lecturer / Teacher
This is intended to address persons who teach at secondary schools and are responsible for career guidance.
Teachers are at the forefront of education of youngsters. They support them regarding general and specific knowledge and also in view of their future career, in particular in the context of career orientation lessons. As a contact person for both pupils and parents, teachers should have a broad knowledge of potential training and career paths for young people. They can contribute to promoting dual education and training by encouraging their pupils to inform themselves in depth about different options by for example visiting job and career fairs or obtain personal career counselling. For this purpose, a cooperation with career counsellors, educational institutions and SMEs can be helpful. Representatives of companies can also come to school to tell about their work and success stories or invite school classes to open days.
