Possible Professional Directions

Back to all Stages


To challenge adolescents creativity by the opportunity to link their imaginary world to real jobs based on their interests. With the help of tools they get an overview of the job ”families”, get the particular professions placed in relation to other trades and get inspiration for a greater variety in the choice of jobs and educations. Combine the future life path imagined in the previous step with realistically possible professional directions.

By completing this step, you should be able to:

  • bridge the previous imaginary world of life qualities with possible professional directions
  • associate certain interests with the trade areas and accommodate more varied options for professional choices
  • narrow personal preferences from the broader spectrum of general areas to three particular professions/trades
  • determine what competencies are required by chosen specific professions

Good to know

The focus is on guidance and introduction to various education choices and entryrequirements for those. Self assessed are the student’s professional, personal and social prerequisites to pursue a desired path and suggest more suitable alternatives. The possible choices are defined by the ISCED level 3 awailabilities in the particular country with the emphasis, that eigther some form of studies or on- job learning should be preferred to unqualified work.


The time for each activity depends on the specifics of the situation. The minimum is specified in the description and can be adjusted according to the possibilities. It is advised not to change the order of the tools. If you have to choose only one of the tools, we recommend N# 2 “Requirements for Professions”.
