RATIONALE
Equipping students with high transferable skills to help them in everyday life and labor market
permanent challenges is becoming imperative due to the socio-economic conditions nowadays. In
order to face the challenges and to anticipate possible problems, students should acquire a set of
essential skills enabling them to integrate rapidly on the labor market. As a result, in accordance with
the individual training needs, teachers should be endowed with didactic and pedagogical tools able to
boost students school-work transition and provide the learning environment with a more real life
oriented approach.
The scope of the Hard-Soft Skilling optional course is the integration of hard and soft core
transversal skills learning as part of the 14-19 year-old high school students development.
The course proposes a student-oriented approach, since it aims at increasing students awareness of
the potential skills they may use and develop in order to increase success in their career, at offering
tips on how to best exploit them based on a personalized career model and on what actions they may
undertake in order to reach their goals. Thus, being trained, students will become more aware of their
potential and of the possibilities of self-promotion. The personal development component guides the
students throughout their studies in order to build solid personal background.
By attending this course students are expected to become better observers, able to make
pragmatic choices and enhance their labor market chances either finding a job or completing academic
studies. They will be provided with tools that will enable and facilitate the integration of these skills in
situations they are prone to meet further in their life after leaving school.
Moreover, the present course proposes a pro-active approach for teachers and managers in the
educational system, becoming thus an important opportunity for teacher professional development.
The optional course could be easily implemented as part of the school based curriculum in any school,
irrespective of its type (either general or vocational) and for any grade on condition to adapt it to the
students possibilities, bringing a new perspective on the necessity of introducing changes in the school
curriculum and in the training models used in schools.

Assessment
Assessment is an integral part of instruction guiding teachers. Based on developing competencies
the assessment is mainly formative seeking to enhance students' learning, commitment and involvement.
The main assessment methods and techniques which may be used for evaluating the overall performance
are: multiple choice, jigsaw, fill in the blank, matching, short response, essay or oral presentation,
interview, discussion, debate, portfolio, self-reflection, etc.
Providing teachers with assessment standards and indicators the formative assessment helps them
evaluate students progress make decisions such as revising certain issues or bringing extra teaching
material.
However, the summative assessment is assured by direct observation and pre and post-testing and a selfassessment component is also provided (career plan model).

Assessment-standards and indicators


There are 8 major assessment standards. The first 4 assess career understanding and knowledge, the
other 4 are oriented towards skills development and improvement.
The students must master each the standard, but not necessarily all its components.
The overall 50% performance of each standard at an acceptable level proves that the students meet the
requirements.

METHODOLOGICAL SUGGESTIONS

Stimulating students interest in their after school life and raising awareness of labor market issues are
essential conditions for attitudinal changes.
The methodological suggestions are oriented towards students skills development. The transversal skills
development implies the use of flexible interdisciplinary approaches and teaching strategies which focus on
building students confidence in exploring and developing their learning potential, promoting labor market
understanding of how knowledge can be applied in daily life and use of active teaching methods( simulation,
problem based learning, cooperation, role plays, games), critical thinking methods , experiential learning based
on concrete tasks assessment as well as self-assessment using teaching strategies which allow individual, peer and
group work.
Different teaching techniques and learning tasks are incorporated and their selection is in relation to the
topic of each unit. The mixture of methods has been selected according to the students age, interest and profile.
The choice of units and methods is meant to encourage learners to make thematic connections and at the same
time to relate content to real life issues, efficiently managing the resources and the intellectual processes.
Recycling previous knowledge from various fields and mostly combining the information in a steam considered
essential to gain access to the labor market (primarily technology, languages and soft-skills) facilitates permanent
learning. Intended as a skill-based syllabus, it can be perceived as multi-syllabus as it integrates different
elements of other syllabus types (entrepreneurship, language learning, cross-cultural aspects, personal
development, etc.)
The methodology used is based on skill and know-how acquisition and practice, and less on theoretical
aspects, activating passive teaching and learning resources by focusing on the pragmatic use of the knowledge,
abilities and attitudes the students possess in real labor market contexts. The combination of teaching methods
belonging to the personal development field with those oriented towards the pragmatic labor market domain will,
on one hand, reinforce personal strengths and motivation and, on the other hand, channel these valuable assets
towards early career guidance and worker profile building, enhancing autonomy and personal initiative.
The diversity of the exercises and activities used provides opportunities to find something suitable to each
students style and rhythm of learning. The range of activities may range from simple ones, successfully carried
out (such as filling in information) to more complex ones (motivating choice and formal letter writing, for
example). As a result the teacher may adapt and adjust several aspects of the teaching process according to the
classroom needs. Depending on the students different styles and rhythms of learning and different levels of
motivation,

the teacher will decide on the appropriate number of hours devoted to each topic. He may choose a more
personalized methodology according to the students profile and interests. The instructional materials may be
adapted, adjusted or extended in accordance with the various contexts of the teaching process.

Instructional material.
The instructional material used is provided by the teaching toolkit developed by the partnership, yet
freedom of selecting and creating appropriate material is left for the teachers implementing it. The teaching
material should meet multiple criteria such as attractiveness of presentation, authenticity of content and cultural
sensitivity.
Self-discovery is an important principle when deciding the selection of instructional materials.
In addition, the selection of teaching material should encourage free practice in order to facilitate experiential
learning and learning-by-doing.
The selected materials come from a variety of sources: books, websites, newspapers, radios, real life sources, etc.
in order to expose learners to multiple pragmatic aspects.
The format of the materials should be is a combination of print and multimedia, integrating the technology in all
aspects of teaching and learning.
Examples of materials to be used: video/audio recordings, advertisements, podcasts, PPT presentations,
blogs, e-mails, virtual environments, job directories, posters, tables, advice columns, notes/messages, letters,
interview recordings, dialogues, websites, newspapers/magazines, application forms, CVs, surveys, compare and
contrast paragraphs, argumentative texts, etc.

Techniques/Strategies/ Teaching activities


The main techniques used along the course implementation is the scaffolded instruction. The scaffolding
techniques is used to support students in the attempt of building upon already acquired knowledge (hard skills)
by breaking the content into more manageable parts.
Students take active roles, being encouraged to use questioning, to provide feedback and support their
peers. Moreover they share the responsibility of learning beyond their current skill and knowledge levels, gaining
ownership of the learning process.
