Get Your Profession through Education


Idea Sketch | Proposal


Idea pitch

“Get Your Profession through Education” is aimed at elaborating and introducing a professional orientation component into the training curriculum of Odessa region schools in Ukraine. As a result of the project teachers, including those coming from rural areas, will acquire necessary competences on professionalization and job counselling to further empower their students for accessing the labour market

Where will your idea take place?

Odessa region, Ukraine

Why does Europe need your idea?

The high-level of youth unemployment in Odessa region is caused by the lack of quality education which doesn’t meet their professional needs.The most affected ones are the young school graduates coming from the rural areas.Instead of continuing studying, majority of them step on their career path. But poor interpersonal skills, absence of appropriate support and guidance and low legal culture are among main obstacles to get the job.It can be compensated by integration of professional orientation

What is your impact?

Overall objective of the project is to decrease youth unemployment in Odessa region through:
-introduce professional orientation tools in school curricula in 8-11 grades of elementary (<20 rural schools);
-increase teacher’s competences on prof orientation of school graduates;
-reinforce students’ leadership, participation and enable them to better understand their capacities;
-increase awareness of school graduates on their labour rights

How do you get there?

Project activities
-staff recruitment and stakeholder’s needs analysis
-mapping analysis of the target regional schools (< 20 rural schools) and elaboration of education toolkits
-3 trains of trainer’s sessions for teachers to improve their competences on professional orientation of school students (up to 60 teachers)
-adaptation of the training programme to the school curriculum and its introduction in in-training programmes
-constant support to teachers
-2 motivation camps for student’s
-post training sessions to assess the effectiveness of the programme and to address main challenges of the project
-final report

What is your story?


Who are you doing it for?

The project will be focused on two main target groups:
Teachers and school children/young people who are in the final three grades of elementary school (8-11 grades) of Odessa regions

What makes your idea stand apart?

Project aims at strengthening the capacity of rural schools and 70% of trained teachers will come from these areas.It is 1st project in the region, even though the professional orientation for school children is the priority of the MoE. The sustainability and continuance of activities will be ensured by involving main stakeholders, the MoE and school administrations. Our approach is innovative and envisages active participation of the school staff creating prof. networks, share competences, etc
