Learning Network Region Rheingau-Taunus (Hesse)

More and more people are affected by unemployment, or are forced to change jobs or professions. They have to cope with the process of changing from one occupation to another. Above all, this process requires soft skills and areas of competence such as reflective skills, decision-making skills, self-determining skills and an ability to assume responsibility for one's own life. Young secondary school leavers, in particular, need to be able to plan and determine their own professional
careers. An awareness of personal skills, areas of competence and strengths and weaknesses promotes the self-confidence, self-esteem and decision-making skills of
young adults when making the transition from school to professional life, enabling them to assume responsibility for their own future and to recognise their own personal requirements. However, we discovered that these skills have so far played
either no role at all or only a minor role in lessons in our region.
