Service Description

With a career guidance measure, you as a measure provider or education service provider give students an in-depth insight into the world of work and careers and provide them with more clarity in their choice of training or study. In doing so, you provide them with practical impressions of the world of work, for example during visits to companies or internships. Your measure complements offers for career orientation at school and career counseling.

Career guidance programs also give students

  • Information on occupational fields,
  • help in exploring their interests,
  • more clarity about their skills (through tests and testing procedures),
  • Strategies for career choice and decision-making,
  • better self-assessment by allowing them to reflect on their aptitudes, inclinations, and abilities through the interventions,
  • Strategies to get to their destination,

The following elements are eliminated as central components of your career orientation measures, but may be a part of them in some circumstances:

  • Job application training,
  • individual coaching,
  • General education and native language instruction,
  • Coordination of career orientation services.

The students are accompanied by social pedagogy.

The measures can be carried out on a modular basis in one block or spread over several dates over one or more school years.

The contractual partner is the employment agency if it advertises the measure. The Employment Agency can also participate financially in third-party measures (by making grants to the third party). The educational service provider is then commissioned by, for example:

  • State,
  • municipality,
  • chambers,
  • schools and support associations,
  • companies,
  • In exceptional cases, the sponsor or association of sponsors, if this share is at least 25 percent of the total costs.
