The article gives an overview of the project “The school as a place of learning a profession” implemented within the framework of Vocational Training and Partnership in the South Caucasus Bildungswerk der Wirtschaft Mecklenburg Vorpommern e.V. funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMZ). Within the scope of the project four private schools were selected in Georgia. Secondary students from these schools visited various companies in Georgia.

Professional orientation and career planning consist of services that help students and beneficiaries successfully identify their strengths and weaknesses, interest areas and needs and go through externship in relevant areas.

The author of the article emphasizes the importance of the project “The school as a place of learning a profession” for the development of self-esteem, personal formation and informed career choice in young people.
