course contents

In order to optimally prepare students for problems in their work life, groups of students work in groups to solve problems based either on real tasks set out by partner companies or fieldwork led by the course teacher. Students apply the knowledge they have acquired in the program and can compare it to their observations and experiences from the project. Students deepen and improve their subject-specific skills, but also consolidate complementary skills such as social skills, risk management, budgeting skills, and ecologically responsible decision-making skills.
After the briefing is given by those who set the task (either the teacher or external partners such as clubs and companies) students work on the project autonomously, carrying out all of the following: planning, coordination, budgeting, controlling, evaluation and final report. Students are only guided by the teacher when necessary, with the teacher taking more of project coaching role.
