“Your subject is important to me” –

How to implement career information activities in the teaching curriculum

Workshop leader

Mladen Šljivović, physics teacher in primary and secondary school in Zaječar, Serbia; coordinator of Career Guidance Team in secondary school.

From 2015 he is a Research Assistant at Faculty of Management in Zaječar.

Goal of workshop

In this workshop participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the ways of implementing career guidance in school’s curriculum as part of regular class activities

Description of the workshop

One of the best ways for students to learn more about possible future careers is to have a face-to-face time with professionals from different areas.

During the workshop leader will present his experience with implementing an activity that includes series of short lectures provided by professionals from different areas explaining importance of subjects taught in school in their further career.

By purposely choosing subjects and, only at first glance, unrelated professions (for example physics/fitness trainer, chemistry/archaeologist, physics/anesthesiologist, sociology/architect, etc.) we achieve the element of surprise and encourage students to take more active approach to both learning and career.

The workshop activities will be focused on the steps needed for this approach: finding the right guest speakers, linking their careers and skills needed (both soft and hard) to school curriculum and various school subjects, helping guest professionals to prepare for their lecture (choosing topics, preparing presentation…), establishing better cooperation between school and local community and exploring all possible jobs and skills that they require.

During the workshop, participants divided in small groups will have the opportunity to create step by step their own classroom activity, find correlation between offered careers and school subjects, and share products of their group work with other participants.
