The New Know-How for Upper Secondary Schools -project develops a model for dialogue and practical cooperation, that is a natural part of cooperation between upper secondary schools, enterprises and universities. Teachers training and coaching will enhance the teaching staff’s capacity for entrepreneurship and working life, anticipating a changing environment and building an entrepreneurial culture.
Visits to enterprises for upper secondary schools are developed in an interactive and functional way. At the same time, good practices are being developed to enable the selection of university courses as part of upper secondary studies. In addition, the project will develop joint events between the region’s enterprises, universities and upper secondary schools, which can be placed in the annual scheduled plan for co-operation between upper secondary schools, enterprises and universities.
The project has resulted in a new operational model for co-operation between upper secondary schools, enterprises and universities, which has been piloted, reported and evaluated for impact. The new approach introduces practical business and university curriculum content into upper secondary education and concretizes the significance of upper secondary education know-how for future employment and university studies. The New Know-How for Upper Secondary Schools provides students with excellent opportunities for developing working and entrepreneurial skills and promotes their employability in companies in the area and their pursuit of higher education.
