为什么选择职业相关教育

引导您的孩子到正确的学校完成学业,并继续接受高等教育或职业生涯,是一个极其重要的决定。

学校是否会给你的孩子提供技能和教育,让他们为这个正在以前所未有的速度变化的世界做好准备?

不同行业和职业道路的发展速度比培养我们学生的大学学位要快。许多学生在完成三年或四年的学位后,意识到他们获得的资格不再与他们的梦想工作相关。这导致学生不得不继续追寻更多的资格,或在低薪或无薪的实习中工作以获得所需的经验。

不管是好是坏,传统的上大学,希望得到一份终身工作的途径,对大多数毕业生来说根本不起作用。同样,寻找新员工和潜在领导者的公司,也不是在寻找在班上名列前茅和获得最高成绩的候选人。相反,他们正在寻找具有全球意识、创造性和灵活性的人,他们拥抱变化,寻找动态的解决方案,而不是试图应用不适合的过时的理论。

There are many misconceptions of a career related education. When I was in high school in the United States there were options available for students who had difficulties with academic work. These were courses such as wood or metal work and focused very much on preparing the students for manual labour jobs. There was little or no importance given to developing personal or world ready skills or preparing them for the bigger issues that they would face after graduation. These were certainly not courses which would give them university entrance or any career beyond the skills they were taught.

如果我们快进到过去10年,你会发现与职业相关的课程在许多方面已经超过了在更传统的偏重学术的环境中可以得到的东西。领导这一变化的是 国际文凭组织(IB)。 与职业相关的课程(IBCP)。IBCP允许为学生个人的需求和激情量身定制更具体的课程。将文凭科目的学术课程与职业相关的研究结合起来,可以在发展现代世界所需的技能和个人素质的同时,实现学术上的进步。这种个性化的教育方法使学生和他们的老师有更多的参与。

蒙特勒国际学校 我们是一所完全的IBCP学校。这意味着我们已经创建了两个具体的职业相关学习途径。

我们的教师和教员来自他们所教的行业;我们的客座讲师也来自在本地和国际上经营的企业,使我们的学生能够真正了解他们以后可能会遇到的情况。

我们的两个职业相关研究(CRS)中的第一个侧重于酒店业,由我们在瑞士教育集团内的合作伙伴的讲师以及全职的MIS工作人员授课。这个CRS专门与商业管理DP课程搭配,让学生学习理论和学术技能,然后通过为真正的客户做项目,将它们应用到他们的酒店管理科目中。该课程允许学生提前进入瑞士教育集团的任何一所高等教育机构学习一年,这些机构都是世界十大酒店管理学院之一。

The second CRS specialises in Business with Digital Marketing. This has been paired with the Psychology DP to allow our students greater insight into human behaviour which can then be applied to their approaches to marketing. Both of these pathways also include Language and Literature plus a modern foreign language with opportunities to embark on internships at the end of their studies to give them the real-world experiences employers and universities are looking for.

This combination of world ready learning combined with the academic integrity of the IB diploma courses sets our students apart from the crowd. However, what really helps your child mature into confident young adults is the IBCP Core. The Personal and Professional Skills Programme helps our students to identify their strengths and develop academic and career related skills.  The Service Learning course supports the students to identify international or local issues and design their own innovative solutions to actively help others within the wider community.  Language Development promotes the application of the language within the local environment and further afield and finally, the Reflective Project enabling students to better understand themselves as individuals and how their actions impact how they are perceived.

Career-related education is not simply about getting a job after graduation. A modern career-related education is co-constructed for our future leaders; internationally minded, determined and ready for the world. It’s an opportunity to really explore the direction they want to go in. This could be university, developing their own business, working internationally in hospitality or delving into Digital Marketing. Regardless of the next step in their journey, our graduates are world ready.
