SIS is one of the pioneers of the high school project "Praxisberater". However, great importance is also attached to practical career orientation at our high schools. In close cooperation with the Federal Employment Agency and the DAA training center (located in Borna), our students are prepared for their future careers.
The Subject Practical Education (PU) is an additional offer at our schools and part of the mandatory timetable. The lessons take place in teaching cabinets, which have a pool of tools and machines, computer technology and high-quality working materials.
In addition, a compulsory elective subject for career orientation is offered in the upper school of the general education Gymnasium. In "Ways into professional life", topics specific to studies, applications and everyday life are addressed. In workshops and presentations by external providers, as well as in advertising visits to various study and career fairs, students are introduced to the world of work and given an overview of their individual ideas and skills.
Each 5th and 6th grade student visits a company for about four hours on three days with a special research assignment provided by the school. As a result, a presentation and a wall newspaper are to be created for the company. In addition, the students present their practical experience in class and at the parents' evening.
The practice-oriented lessons in these classes provide the first basic insights into practical work procedures, development and production processes, and the economic contexts of various occupational groups.
The Reinsdorf and TRIAS Elsterberg high schools have already been awarded the Saxon Seal of Quality for Career Orientation for the high quality of their career orientation. The other schools work according to the same concept, which means that a uniform quality can be expected.
As an exemplary concept for career and study guidance, that of the IGM can be viewed in the Download area can be viewed.
In the practice-oriented lessons (PU) as well as in connection with TC/computer science, we teach the students versatile basic skills and abilities, e.g.
In the upper secondary level of the Wirtschaftsgymnasium, our students are given the task of dealing with their first entrepreneurial tasks as a student company. In cooperation with the secondary level II of the Gymnasium, the students prepare parties and events, arrange the catering and generate their own capital through additional small events such as cake bazaars.
With the help of this company, the future graduates learn important skills regarding calculation, planning and financing of their own company with a focus on business administration. In addition, they can use the profits to help finance their graduation ball and enrich school life with their events. They need to develop confidence in accounting and cash management, since after an operating period of about one year, the company is handed over to the next "generation". In an official act, which is usually linked to the open day, the key of the student company is handed over to the next course level in the presence of the sponsoring association, the school management, the teacher assigned to the student company as well as our managing director Mr. School.
