Project description

 

     Many young people leave school prematurely, which leads to increasing levels of unemployment, particularly among young people. A strong correlation between education and the chance of employment make us believe that by improving learning possibilities (Strong and well-performing education), career knowledge  (e.g. by counseling) and training and youth (learning) systems, it will be possible to help deal with the issues.  Relevant skills and knowledge will help students to master the challenges at the labor market and within the competitive economy.

      In order for this project to proceed, all seven schools have discussed and negotiated the overall objectives an impact that we wish to attain from this as follows:
• tobuilt entrepreneurial skills in the participating students;
• to develop practical skills of using ICT technology out of school curricular;
• to raise awareness of the importance of healthy lifestyle;
• to raise students’ awareness of their character and abilities and help them to choose their educational path in order to combat early school leaving or dropping out of school;
• to raise attainment of under-achieving students;
• to get to know the labor market and broaden their horizons concerning the variety of jobs available;
• to learn more about the jobs in the area;
• to enable students to learn about the specifics of different jobs by job shadowing and interviews;
• to raise the quality of career counseling by improving students’ self-evaluation skills and their ability to assess their suitability for a particular job;
• to help students become aware of job prospects for the next decade – job needed and jobs disappearing;
• to raise students’ awareness of the demands, requirements, problems and offers of the European labor market;
• to develop the English language and assimilation skills at all schools;
• to build and develop the so- called 21st century skills:
1. Critical thinking, problem solving, reasoning;
2. Research practices;
3.Creativity, artistry, curiosity, imagination, innovation, personal expression;
4. Self-direction, planning, self-discipline, adaptability, initiative;
5.Leadership, teamwork, collaboration, cooperation;
6.Information and communication technology (ITC) literacy, media and Internet literacy;
7.Economic literacy, entrepreneurship;
 
      A general approach to turn this rationale into practical and mutual learning is to implement active conscious use of Bloom's 6 levels (Knowledge – Recall or locate information; Comprehension – Understand learned facts; Application – Apply what has been learned to new situations; Analysis – “Take apart” information to examine different parts; Synthesis – Create or invent something; bring together more than one idea; Evaluation – Consider evidence to support conclusions). We want actively to implement learning at the higher levels. The combined effort to produce and use Online learning within the curriculum is intended to realize this aim.
