REVIEW OF THE TRAINING INITIATIVE:

- The teacher leading this class must be a dynamic and resourceful person (problem-solver)
This is a subject for students at the last year of the compulsory education, following the Curricular Diversification Programme (students on school leaving risk). It is very motivating and useful for students with lack of motivation for the studies.
1st term: Pupils are asked for their professional interests. The teacher put the interest in groups according to the professional profiles. For each professional group of interest the teacher organizes either a visit to a school where prepare for this work or invites a professional on this field to come to the school and speak about how is this profession like and what studies are required to work on it. Each student has to fill in a sheet for each visit (1). There they have to include information about the different studies related to that profession, the professional options and what schools in our region offer that type of studies. At the end of the term each student has complete information of the professional interests of the group.
2nd term: Each student chose a profession that they would like to know from inside(it can be the same that they said in the first term or might have changed). Then, the teacher:
1.Looks for related companies/organizations
2.Sign a cooperation agreement between the school and the company
3.During one morning a week, during 7 weeks (from 9 to 13h) the student spend one morning a week, during 7 weeks, going with a person who develops the work that the student would like to do in the future.
During these weeks the teacher makes a follow up (goes with the pupil to the company the first day, etc) and the pupils write a diary where each day they answers the questions about what did they like most, less, what surprised them, what seemed easy/difficult…
At the end of the “stage” the teacher ask the tutor at the company to evaluate the behavior /attitude of the student
3rd Term:
- The students, helped by the teacher, elaborate their personal training itinerary. This ends up with the submission of the application for the following studies. Given that at that moment, according to law they can already work (in Spain it is allowed from the age of 16) they are taught how to make a cv, a self-introduction letter and different sources of job search.
