Despite the quarantine, career guidance goes according to the plan: teachers work online
Posted on 8 April, 2020
Vocational teachers quickly adapt to remote work formats and conduct lessons online. Teachers of 24 pilot schools in 8 cities of Kyrgyzstan receive support in developing vocational guidance lessons. For example, 9-grade students of School No. 4 in Osh named after S.M. Kirov went through the topics "Gender stereotypes in specialties" and "Requirements for professions, abilities and employment" in Kyrgyz language. Alibayeva Nurjamal Bazarbayevna, teacher of Kyrgyz language and literature, went through these topics with her pupils. Her colleagues G.A. Arapova and N.S. Belina from school #2 in Karakol developed a video lesson "Professions I prefer" (in Russian).
Seven more video lessons on career guidance are being created by the trained teacher, while overall there are 17 lessons in the pilot school curriculum. These lessons help boys and girls learn more about different professions and occupations, their importance and qualification requirements. This timely provided information and knowledge enable 9th grade graduates jointly with their parents to make the right choice regarding the future career.
