For the compulsory subject “Vocational guidance, social and daily skills”

Career guidance has been a central issue for social partners for years. Whether it’s at the annual ‘Future/Work/Life’ career guidance fair or the ‘Let’s Walz’ international career coaching campaign. Also at events and workshops as well as regional hubs in order to connect schools, teachers, parents and businesses in the best possible way. The federal government must now take appropriate action. “It is important that career guidance is firmly anchored in the classroom,” Wieser and Ecker say. Therefore, they renew their demand to introduce the compulsory subject “vocational guidance, social and daily skills” for grades five to eight in all types of schools. Professional orientation with appropriate practical content should be supplemented by social components such as social interaction, knowledge about the state of solidarity as well as associations and volunteerism. This new mandatory topic would create a win-win situation for all involved. Therefore, implementation will be especially important.
