Vocational schools need a clear profile. Find out what already distinguishes you as an organisation in your work. An adapted curriculum design and motivating learning environments also highlight your position and unique selling points.
The work of the vocational schools is good. The graduates are welcome in practice.
In addition to the key sectors of construction and automotive engineering, however, the healthcare sector is growing enormously. Positive changes in income are already foreseeable in the medium term.
With its strong practical relevance and the constant reflection of job-related competences, vocational training will retain its place and incentive for both school leavers and employers.
On the other hand, some also see the future of the health care professions in taking over physician-replacing activities, e.g. in diagnostics. This has already been approved for midwives, if they bring along a full course of study. In practice, as in the example of diagnostics, this flexibility is probably demanded by some of the therapists. Thankfully, academic paths are already being opened up to individual trainees in preparation for this - through cooperation with universities. The possibilities of interlocking and coordination can be used even more. The demand for personnel with an academic degree will slowly increase. On the other hand, the nursing and physiotherapy fields are already being reported as occupations in short supply in their status quo. The work of the vocational schools will not lose any of its importance in the long term.
The work on a clear profile of your vocational schools can thus be in the foreground.With an adapted curriculum design and a motivating learning environment, you too can highlight your position and unique selling points.
