Berufsparcours (Professional Circuit)

Germany | Started in 1994

Director: Karin Ressel


Karin Ressel has invented a set of hands-on learning modules that simulate real-life work experiences in order to support young people identify their strengths and to prepare them for the practical aspects of a future career. Berufsparcours® (which roughly translates as profession circuit) targets young people from grades 8 to 10 who, during one day, pass through individual learning stations where they can test different technical professions, from a mechanic to a policeman or a secretary, in a very practical manner. To create a long-term and effective intervention for youth, the association works with schools to implement her modules and toolkits into curricula to provide outlets for youth to test their interests.
