1. Specific qualification modules for further training of specialists for vocational
The following five innovative specific qualification modules are developed for further training of vocational orientation (VO) specialists and provide specific knowledge as well as implementation recommendations with regard to the working with the target group "young people in the career choice process "and against the background of the topic "digitisation in the world of work ". The modules focus the needs of the target group and centre the changes in the working / professional world due to the increasing digitisation. The modules focus beside general vocational aspects like the changes in profession profiles, the operational challenges and the requirements to apprentices, which result from the increasing digitisation also especially vocational field aspects, required competencies for apprentices and know-how and methods for transferring information to young people. The specialist for vocational orientation will be enabled to advise and to support young people professionally and goal-oriented with a view to the vocational changes due to the increasing digitisation. In order to take into account a wide range of aspects and to impart a holistic know-how to the young people after the further training, the specialists for vocational orientation can access in the context of further training four different vocational field-specific modules and one module, that focus on the challenges of the digitisation for apprenticeships in general. Each module includes an extensive and comprehensible description that shows the skills to be imparted and the learning objective and describes the didactic implementation options, as well as the time frame. In addition, each module includes a rough concept for a detailed overview of all relevant facts of the different training days as well as detailed schedules for each planned training day and a teaching content table.
1.1 Module „The challenges of digitisation for training and work”
1.2 Module „Digitised production professions”
1.3 Module „Digitisation in the craft”
1.4 Module „Commercial professions in the course of digitisation”
1.5 Module „Digitisation in nursing and health professions”
2. Vocational field-specific measure concepts for vocational orientation with focus on the digitisation in the world of work/professions
The five newly developed vocational field-specific measure concepts are vocational field-specific and in
particular focus on digitisation in the world of work/professions and centre the resulting challenges and requirements. In addition, the measure concepts take into account changed and new job
profiles and give young people in the career choice process the opportunity to acquire knowledge of the changes, new challenges and requirements due to digitisation in individual professions.
Furthermore they get the opportunity to test things directly and practical. At the same time, the concepts partly cover overarching topics such as questions about data security and protection, cloud
computing, digital learning and domain-specific changes such as digitisation trends in different vocational fields. The five measure concepts are different in their formation and structure, but they
are all transferable to different vocational fields. For this purpose especially the content has to be adapted to other professions. The five measure concepts focus on digitisation with the following
vocational field-specific orientations:
1. Industrial-technical vocational field
2. Craft vocational field
3. Commercial vocational field
4. Environmental vocational field
5. Vocational field health and care
The measure concepts are new and current instruments for vocational orientation specialists, which in turn contribute to a qualitatively better, specific and up-to-date vocational orientation of the young people and offer them, among other things, new professional opportunities and highlight the attractiveness of unattractive professions. By using the concepts young people can orientate themselves more specifically and according to their vocational interests, aptitudes and inclinations and make their career choices by taking into account the changes in the world of work/professions due to the increasing digitisation.
