Goal of the workshop

Presenting a school project “The Journey of a Book” which has been awarded The National Career Guidance Award in the Czech Republic in 2016.

Description of the workshop

In the workshop we are going to present a school project “The Journey of a Book.  During work on professional publication for career counsellors we decided to double its usefulness as a career guidance project for year 6 pupils of the primary school which builds on the development of the publication. Children were directly involved in creating the book (their contributions are part of the book) and they also experienced a wide range of professions that make books possible. As part of the project, they learned all about the work of an illustrator, printer, writer, editor, translator or proof-reader. Through work on the project, children have become familiar with the diversity of the labour market and have understood that they have far more options. The project also included strengthening pupils’ self-knowledge and developing the ability to reflect their needs. The project was a joint work of teachers, parents, pupils and educational organization EKS.
