Themes and goals:
This year Denmark will be hosting a study visit for guidance counsellors, school leaders and teachers who work with education and guidance in secondary level education (pupils 13-16 years). The main topic of the thematic activity is career learning and career guidance in secondary education and the transition from lower to upper secondary education. How can career learning be actively implemented in lower and upper secondary education, when should it start, which teaching competences are needed and which factors play an important role? Furthermore, the visit will also look at/touch upon career learning as a method to foster student retention and the prevention of early school leaving among secondary pupils. The programme will include introductions and presentations on the first day and later there will be visits to Danish schools, institutions and projects, which work with career learning and career guidance in secondary education. All participants are expected to contribute actively to the discussions and exchange experiences and best practice.
The overall aim of the study visit is to give the participants new inspiration and knowledge about career guidance and career learning in secondary school and to exchange experiences in a European context. How can career guidance and career learning contribute to and qualify the pupils’ choice of upper secondary education? How can career learning and career guidance be a strategy to foster student retention preventing early school leaving?
