I work as a study and career counsellor at IES in Landskrona. As a career counsellor, I want to ensure that you, as a student, receive guidance and impartial information based on your interests and issues regarding your future and choice of upper secondary school.
It would be best if you felt ready and prepared when it is time for you to apply for upper secondary school.
My and the whole school's responsibility is to give you, as a student, career management skills.
A career counsellor is a school-wide responsibility, from preschool class onwards. The teachers work to stimulate students' creativity, curiosity, and self-confidence, as well as their willingness to try and solve problems.
During spring in year 8, I prepare you for a week's internship; in year 9, you have a week's internship in the fall.
We meet for individual talks and in the classroom. We talk about future competencies, professions, upper secondary school programs, etc. You, as a student, are welcome to come and speak to me when I have an "open office" or book a time for a meeting.
Of course, as a guardian, you are more than welcome to contact me if you have any concerns about the internships, choice of upper secondary schools, or anything else you feel you need to discuss with me.
