Today's society and the labour market are marked by uncertainty and change, making it more necessary than ever for students to be academically and professionally oriented. It is therefore essential to provide students with skills and competences that will enable them to develop life projects. Real-life experiences allow young people to learn first-hand what their dream professions are like and what competences are needed to access them. At the same time, from a pedagogical point of view, learning and mentoring experiences with professional volunteers are an effective academic guidance tool.
Based on the "Learning by Doing" method, the aim of this programme is to guide and prepare students for the labour market and to enrich their training, as they learn first-hand about the professional reality of which they will be a part in the future.
This programme is offered in digital and face-to-face format to suit the needs of the participants, in order to be able to continue to support the students' academic and employment decisions.
Online formatOver a minimum of 2 sessions, the young people will be mentored online by volunteers from their professional area of interest, and will experience working remotely and in a team on a professional challenge.
On-site formatThe students share a working day in the company with professionals from the sector in which they would like to train in the coming years, and accompany them during their daily tasks.
In this year's edition, the Rafael del Pino Foundation has had a young girl from the first year of high school of the IES Beatriz Galindo during the working day on 25th October, so that she could get to know its mission, its purpose, the activities it carries out and how it works on a day-to-day basis.
