In July 2012 our school was awarded with the so-called career choice seal of approval (BORIS) of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IHK).
In 2010, PG was one of the first grammar schools in the region that concluded an education partnership with three local and regional companies.
Orientation to career modules were evaluated annually (together with other educational focal points) with a scientific survey among all teachers, pupils, parents by Professor Dr. Werner Sacher, an expert in this field.
Our orientation to career and studies concept and the manifold partners of the school as well as the existent contacts have been introduced in the Erasmus+ project.
The existing concept has been enhanced by a European component. Thus foreign language skills and intercultural competences have moved in the focus of interest not only of teachers but also of pupils.
Skills and competences as to coordination, organization and management as well as to project work on a transnational level have been improved in general by learning from each other during the project.
New contacts in the area of MINT- subjects have been developed in the course of our Erasmus+ project and new ideas and modules will be introduced thereupon.
Participation and commitment to the idea “Fit for Job” have increased on the part of teachers’ staff, and pupils as well as education partners.
In October 2015 the contract with our education partners could be revised and renewed as a fourth partner joined in.
The BORIS seal for outstanding orientation concepts and modules – has been awarded again in July 2015.
In the course of the Erasmus+ project, monitoring and evaluation by our education partners, Italian and Latvian school partners as well as our pupils have strengthened and confirmed the feeling to be on the right way.
Future tendencies and sustainability
Sharing and exchanging our experience with other schools in new projects – thus enhancing and deepening the knowledge of learning in projects and manifold environments.
