More than 50 schools join the OSOC programme28 December 2014
In November, the education institutions that will participate in the One School One Country Programme were identified. The list of more than 50 schools include public, municipal and state institutions from all regions of São Paulo.
The Programme integrates the schedule of WorldSkills São Paulo 2015 into the curriculum of the schools. It illustrates the importance of the event to promote the professional technical education to more than 10,000 young students with age between 12 and 15 years old.
In August 2015, each Member Delegation (represented by a Member country/region region of WorldSkills International) will visit one of 55 high schools selected. When the teams and the schools meet, it will be a social and cultural exchange through playful activities and cultural presentations, as well as a learning opportunity to hear about new careers and technologies.
Besides, the young people will have the opportunity to visit the Competition at Anhembi Park and get a chance to better understand each skill represented.
“This will be without a doubt an excellent opportunity to be in contact and learn about the possibilities offered in technical education, as well as having the chance to learn about the culture of other countries and professional careers options in a intercultural experience”, comments Fátima Aparecido Antônio, Director of the Division of Technical Guidance of Municipal Education Secretariat.
