Business-related education at the high schools and grammar schools of the SIS

All high school and grammar school students at Saxony International Schools receive insights into vocational training, the world of work and business management in addition to a comprehensive holistic and foreign language-oriented education.

Our plus for you

SIS is one of the pioneers of the high school project "Praxisberater". This cooperation project of the Saxon Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs with the Federal Employment Agency was launched in June 2013 as a support measure for individual promotion for career and study orientation. Each student receives a development plan from the practical advisor according to the results of an analysis of his or her potential, which is coordinated with the teacher, parents and, of course, the student himself or herself. In addition, the practical advisors establish and maintain contacts with companies and offer individual counseling for students and parents in grades 7 and 8.
The Subject Practice-Oriented Instruction (PU) is an additional offering at our schools and part of the mandatory schedule. Classes are held in teaching cabinets equipped with a pool of tools and machines, computer technology and high-quality work materials.

Vocational orientation in everyday school life

Practice-oriented teaching

In the practice-oriented lessons (PU) as well as in connection with TC/computer science/WTH, we teach the students a variety of basic skills and abilities, e.g.

  • diverse projects in metal, wood, plastic, textile processing,
  • in the area of robot programming, learning is done on models, circuits are made and programming is tested,
  • Design and construction of bodies and 3D printing
  • Technical drawing both via PC and by hand,
  • Learning how to calculate the manufacturing costs of parts, effective design of production costs with different assembly variants (nest production),
  • T/C technology and PU are interlinked,
  • the Office package (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) is linked to ten-finger typing.
