Vocational training camp for grades 8-11 from IBS Education will help you choose your future profession

Choose a future profession with IBS Education

In the last week of 2016, a vocational guidance camp for students in grades 8-11 will be held in Kyiv for the sixth time. The organizer of the camp is IBS Education, which knows about the problem of complex and conscious choice of future profession.

In addition to educational projects for schoolchildren, IBS also organizes activities for students and very often meets young people who already understand in the student bench that they are not doing what they are inclined to do. That is why it is worth getting the most information about the future profession at school.

The IBS winter camp will acquaint schoolchildren with representatives of 12 professions. First, participants will be able to learn more about modern professions, such as: SMM, web design, copywriting, website creation, etc. After that, leading specialists in a relaxed and practical way will introduce high school students to the classic professions: marketing, business, PR, finance, IT, journalism, law, psychology.

In addition, a rich program of visits to top Ukrainian and international companies has been prepared for the participants.

During the week, students will work in groups on projects, which will then be presented to jury members and other participants.

The organizers of the IBS Winter Camp note that after the camp, the child will be able to decide on a future profession and will be satisfied with the time spent, as confirmed by more than 500 graduates of previous camps

More information can be obtained at the link or by phone 095-142-23-42 (Victoria), 063-374-76-40 (Anna).

The camp will take place from December 24 to 30. Venue of the camp: "Brain Hub", Kiev, st. Goloseevskaya, 17. Price: from UAH 1,700.

Techniques for speed reading, perception and processing of information are becoming increasingly popular. As a rule, people want to master these techniques based on career considerations

Speed ​​reading and professional success

The average reading speed for a normal person is about 200 words per minute. John F. Kennedy, as we know, could read more than a thousand words a minute.

However, anyone can learn such a frantic speed, it's just a matter of training, says the head of the seminar on speed reading Jürgen Gampe: "We can say that we learn to read again. And it's a very exciting process that is based on what a person can do"...

Disable the brakes

Each participant is explained what processes take place in the brain during reading. The human eye perceives only a limited number of abstract symbols that the brain can transform into words and sentences filled with specific content. Learning to read is a really difficult process. Most adults read like children, that is, word for word, mentally saying what they read. This is exactly what they are "brakes" who teach in speed reading courses "to disconnect"...

"The focus is on visual reading. It is necessary to make optimal use of visual focus, that is, those three and a half centimeters that cover the eye. These are about three or four words of one eye movement" Gampe explains.

Fitness for the eyes and for the brain

Instead of perceiving each word separately, the eyes must snatch a whole group of words at once. This technique, if desired, can be mastered. However, at first it is difficult, because neither the eyes nor the brain are accustomed to such reading. Training is like a gym for the optic nerves and the process of perceiving information. However, it is not enough to learn only fast reading, it is necessary to learn to understand what is read, which is also a difficult task.

"At first it is difficult during study, because to begin with it is necessary to accustom visual processes to a new pace. When you concentrate on the technique of looking, you do not perceive the content of what you read very well. But when it comes to automatism, then this process becomes similar to ordinary reading. Then you don't think how to do it, you just do it" says Gampe.

Not only fast reading, but also understanding

High-speed reading, comprehension and analysis of what is read is just a matter of technology, experts say. As a result of this process, for example, the feeling of melodic language is lost. When a certain speed is reached, the inner voice in the head turns off. The question arises as to whether poetry can be read in this way. For Jurgen Gampe, there are no problems in this sense. "I've already read poems like that, - he argues. - Some of them can be read this way, but some are better read according to the old method"... The participants of the seminar agree with this.

Professionals need to read a lot

Stefan Gruber, who works in the field of information technology, explains his desire to learn to read quickly as a professional necessity and clearly distinguishes between reading for information and leisure: "At leisure, I would like to enjoy a book, but in professional life it is more about getting information"... In order not to lose qualifications and not to lose to competitors, Stefan has to constantly master huge amounts of information.

His colleague Elke Bittner adds that reading at leisure becomes a luxury that is very difficult to afford in constant time: "The continuous avalanche of information is becoming more and more. You are expected to be aware of everything, this applies to both private and professional life. In my opinion, it is possible to cope with it only thanks to this technique"...

According to the new concept of master's programs, the study time will increase to one and a half to two years and the student will be able to choose a specific direction of their studies.

Master's program: we are determined by priorities

In Ukraine, they want to train masters according to the European model.

The Ministry of Education and Science has approved a new concept for master's training. After all, the current existing system does not correspond to world practice.

A master's degree in a year is something exotic that is not present in most national educational legislation and practice. These are the arguments of ministerial officials who plan to divide educational master's programs into research ones - focused on the training of future scientists; professional - which will develop the professional and managerial competence of a person and career - aimed at improving the acquired knowledge, practical experience and preparation of a person for possible activities outside the professional field in which he received his first master's degree.

"The reform is long overdue"

Director of the Doctoral School of the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy Mikhail Vinnytsky welcomes the innovations and says that the reform is long overdue. "In practice, in many universities, a master's degree is a renamed fifth year of study. This fifth year, in the form in which it exists now, does not correspond to the world practice of master's programs and to what is provided by the Bologna process. A master's program is a full-fledged cycle that begins with special courses and can end with the writing of a research paper if it is research or an internship if it is a professional master's program. To date, there is a certain discrepancy. Because on the basis of a ministerial order, a full-fledged master's cycle is introduced. A person can choose to go there or not. And according to the current rules of the law on higher education, completed higher education is achieved only after graduation. It turns out that it is a duty to obtain a master's degree" - criticizes the professor.

It is necessary to change the law on education

Mikhail Vinnytsky notes that changing the basics of master's training in Ukraine is illogical. However, before they can be implemented, it is necessary to first change the outdated law on education so that there are no such absurdities. However, the student in any case has the opportunity to choose a master's program. In order not to make a mistake with the choice, Vinnytsia advises after graduation to take a break and decide on priorities, gain life experience and only then receive a master's degree. According to him, this is what many students in the West do.

A pause in learning allows you to understand in which direction you should continue your studies. "In this philosophy, which is taken from the European system and is now beginning to evolve in Ukraine, training does not necessarily end at the age of 22. At the age of 22, he graduated with a bachelor's degree, went to work, gained experience , became more mature and returned to university. And the school then becomes more integrated into public life, not just a forge of personnel as is happening now" - says the director of the Doctoral School.

What after a master's degree: business or science?

Mikhail Vinnytsky is also convinced that when choosing a master's program you should understand the purpose of this training and clearly present the ultimate goal of what you will do later in life. This opinion is shared by Konstantin Yakunenko. He studied at the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy for a bachelor's degree, received a master's degree, and is now a graduate student and at the same time works in an international consulting firm.

"An important question I had to answer when choosing the future was what to do next after the master's program: to do science or business.
