Four Ways to Encourage Students to Learn

How can we improve students' starting positions in life and encourage them to continue learning? Guest lessons bring experts in their field to the front of the class, who share their journey. Job and student shadowing allows for a one-on-one meeting with a person engaged in a profession or specialty of interest. The study visits show today's work environments and workplaces up close.

Study visit

A study visit is a class visit of up to 1-2 hours to a company, public institution or non-governmental organization. Organizations add their own invitations, and you can choose the right one for your students.
Study visits take place in two formats: work processes or occupations. The purpose of the study visit "Work Processes" is to introduce students to how the organization works. The purpose of introducing professions is to show at least ten different professions of the company. Such as:

  • How does Swedbank work?
  • What are the offices in Harju County Court?

Job shadowing

During job shadowing, the student observes the working day of one employee for 4-8 hours or the meeting takes place virtually and lasts 45 minutes. A suitable job shadowing place can be booked by the student himself/herself on our website.

Focus directions We help every teacher to pursue career and entrepreneurial competence

Career training and competence

One of the main topics of career training is knowledge of self-improvement and labour market opportunities, as well as their importance in career development. In addition to self-analysis, a better overview of the labour market will give a young person entering an independent life a level of self-confidence, i.e. a better starting position, because it is the confident and active people who break through in life.

Business education and financial wisdom

The aim of entrepreneurship education is to support the formation of self-directed and initiative-minded young people. It is a practical and vital subject where young people become more familiar with the possibilities of entrepreneurship and working life. Not everyone becomes an entrepreneur, but entrepreneurship benefits everyone. The Makers of the Future platform helps to bring the goals to life by introducing the world in which the makers of the future will put their ideas into practice.
