Vocational school study programmes
Print page
Between 2008 and 2010 a series of professional language curricula and study kits is being produced for vocational education institutions which will help boost students’ ability to pass their professional examination and start working in Estonian-language working environments.
Study programmes are being developed for ten specific fields, with each programme covering professional language requirements and the minimum required vocabulary and including a full curriculum and evaluation guidelines. The study kits comprise a training video for studies of professional communication, an interactive and paper-based textbook and workbook, and an electronic teacher’s guide.
A collection showcasing means of active studies of Estonian language and culture is being created which supports the integration of vocational education students with native languages other than Estonian into Estonian society through the methodical teaching of contemporary language and culture. The collection includes a video and a handbook. The sample lessons on the video demonstrate different methods of active learning. The handbook provides explanations about the methods used and includes additional exercises and worksheets for students.
