Online Course "Career Guidance for the High School Students"
The students of the high school are confronted with many issues regarding their career choice and the choice of their further education after graduation. In this part of Europe (Croatia, Serbia, Kosovo, Albania, Macedonia etc.) there is a lack of the organized professional orientation at the high schools regarding this issue. On the other side, the students of the high school are forced after graduating to make a decision regarding their study choice/profession which has a great impact on their future life. The students are not aware of their potential, possibilities and their wishes. So, they generally speaking mostly rely on the help of the parents, sometimes some teachers. In this course, we want to tackle them to think “out of box” and provide them with the tools in their adequate career exploration.
Is this course for me?
Most sections are relevant to every high student who is in the beginning phase of their exploration for an appropriate study choice. Although we designed the guide especially for students at the age of 16, 17, the ideas apply to a reader of any age.
There are no requirements for the participation for this course.
