Tips for implementation
The session can be either a half day seminar, or a full regular aspect of the curriculum. It is recommended that parents are told about the idea and volunteers are recruited as early on in the school year as possible, finding a date/time for the session that works for the students, school and parents. It is recommended that parents discuss their occupation with the resources provided as aids for 20 minutes, allowing time for questions at the end. The purpose is to inform young people their own career path and everyday life at work. The presentation may be supported by a slide show, a video from the workplace, or work tools. If desired, a workshop can also be organized.
