ALTERNATIVE PROGRAMME TO TALENTCHECK

Virtual career guidance offer

This alternative programme to Talentcheck is intended to support adolescents in the 7th and/or 8th grade in the career orientation process. The focus here is on interests, as due to the current situation, skills and abilities cannot be assessed on site at the Talentcenter, but the preliminary assessment can still be conducted online.

Through the interactive WEBinar, adolescents not only get a detailed insight into the topic of interests and what role these interests play in the further choice of education, but they are also intensively prepared for their visit to the Talentcenter, to assess the skills and abilities.

Advising

In order to best support students in making the leap into the world of work, individual advising based on the Talentreport is available from the 2020/21 school year.

Thanks to financing from the Department of Economics of the State of Styria and the support of Styria’s Department of Education, it is possible for trained vocational orientation guides with knowledge of the region to help students put the results of the Talentcheck into practice.

DIGITAL SUPPORT IN THE CAREER ORIENTATION PROCESS

Career guidance fairs

Since education fairs had to be cancelled as face-to-face events due to Covid-19, there are already some alternative online formats to guide adolescents through the jungle of career orientation in the best possible way. The Talentcenter of the Styrian Economic Chamber is happy to provide support and is also part of these online fairs.

Fascination - Technology Online Challenge

The Challenge that was already arranged in the Europasaal was reworked and moved to the virtual space.
The big change: This time there are three smaller challenges for the teams. The Talentcenter is also part of this online challenge and is participating as an online exhibitor.

Check your Future

The Leibnitz 2020 Education Fair in the online format is supported by regional funds from Southwest Styria within the framework of the Styrian State and Regional Development Act. The Talentcenter is also represented in the interactive list of exhibitors.

Styrian BBO Week

During the action week from 23rd to 27th November 2020, more than 30 free online offers, webinars and videos as well as interesting facts and information about Education | Career | Orientation will be offered. The Talentcenter is represented in the form of webinars.

ALL ABOUT THE TOPIC "CAREER ORIENTATION"

Free WEBinars

Digitalisation is more than just a buzzword at the Talentcenter. In the time of the school closures, we reacted very quickly and offered webinars on the topic of “Career orientation”. Experts were available for all interested persons and they tried to shed some light on the jungle of career orientation. Experts from different fields were available for those interested; to give professional inputs and to take questions. The webinars can still be viewed on our homepage.

OUR HOLIDAY OFFER

No boredom in the holidays

Even during the summer holidays, we reacted quickly to the ongoing difficult childcare situation and further extended the holiday offers. The summer weeks were fully booked again this year and planning for next year is already in full swing.

BIBONGO

With the “Future Factory of the Children’s City”, children are offered the opportunity to work with the topic of digitalisation and its effects in small groups and WORKSHOPS. A playful environment is created for children through which they can directly experience the development from the analogue to the digital “age” and thus create their future ideas of a city life that is “desirable” for them. Together with bits4kids, the Talentcenter is able to offer the children an opportunity to engage with this seminal topic.
