Therefore, it is important to inform the young generation and wider society about the mechanical engineering and metalworking industry to and to attract future specialists to the mechanical engineering and metalworking industry.

 

Project’s main aims are:

1) To provide comprehensive, modern and interesting career guidance materials about mechanical engineering and metalworking industry, related education and qualifications in Latvia and Estonia;

2) To train career guidance consultants, STEM teachers and other educators and specialists in general education institutions about career prospects in mechanical engineering and metalworking industry.

 

Project’s main results are:

1) Established interesting career guidance materials about mechanical engineering and metalworking industry in Estonian, Latvian and English;

 2) Trained at least 50 (at least 25 per national country) career guidance consultants and specialists of general education about career possibilities in mechanical engineering and metalworking industry.

 

Target groups:

1) Career guidance consultants, STEM teachers and other educators and specialists in general education institutions;

2) 7-9 grade pupils in general education institutions;
