In some countries like France, last-year high school students choose professions they are interested in and they visit corresponding companies/institutions for a week. There they can observe the everyday work and get an idea of the job.
An expansion of this system would be students throughout high school to visit jobs related to every class they take. For each course, it can be one day per year. For example, for mathematics, they can visit an engineering company, for physics they can visit a weather station, for physical education a sports team, for arts an artist. To find the places students can go, high schools can form connections with local companies or institutions.
Benefits:
  • School subjects are connected with life and applications outside school. This would help especially with subjects that are less popular and hard to see the significance of.
  • Students obtain a wider perception of working life in different fields.
  • Students form a more educated opinion on the profession they would like to choose later.

Shubhankar Kulkarni I was inspired by that idea! The two ideas have a similar goal and are complementary. This one focuses on the overall exposure of children to working life, as a part of each class. The final goal is not just to help them choose a job but to see the significance of every school subject and how it is applied in every day life.
