Young people make plans and choices regarding education and working life in a situation where working life is changing at an accelerating pace. Old industries and professions are left behind when new ones are born. The education system is challenged to stay up to date with these changes. At the same time, young people need information about opportunities to influence the future through various work tasks and professions. It is important to take steps that green transition does not increase gender segregation in the labor market. Hence, training for subject teachers and guidance counsellors as well as company representatives so that youth would see the variety of possibilities in working life is critical. In this implementation project, we train and conduct workshops for teachers and company representatives for pedagogical working life visits.
