Yanka Kupala State University hosts “PROF holidays” for high school students for the first time

62 students of secondary schools and gymnasiums in Grodno, Slonim, Shchuchin and Skidel joined vocational guidance intensive courses from 3 to 5 November.
The project "PROF-holidays" started with a video conference, during which experts – representatives of various companies who have successfully implemented themselves in the profession-got in touch with the children. They shared their experience and opinions about what professions will be in demand in the future and what professional skills need to be developed today.
– We want to help our potential applicants take another confident step in the direction of choosing a profession, - said the Dean of the Faculty of Pre-University training of Yanka Kupala State University, Iosif Dornyak, opening the career guidance intensive course. – The goal of the project "PROF-holidays" is not to offer applicants a particular specialty, but to create conditions for them to develop soft skills and hard skills as future professionals. The University has accumulated a wealth of experience in terms of resources and intellectual base, we have a very strong practice-oriented component of the educational process, so I think our new project will be implemented successfully.
The program of the second day of the intensive course included visiting the Faculties of Kupala University. By the way, each of the project participants had the opportunity to decide in advance on the choice of the faculty and the direction they were interested in. So, an eleventh-grader from Skidel Polina Poleshuk has already decided that she wants to become a designer and therefore is looking forward to visiting the faculty of arts and design.
– Our school teachers offered me to take part in the project "PROF-holidays", and I found it very interesting. After all, choosing a profession is a very important stage in every person's life. Moreover, I have already decided: I am going to enter Kupala University at the Faculty of Arts and Design, I want to study in graphic Design, - Polina Poleshuk said.
But Maksim Kozich, who is studying in the final year of gymnasium No. 2 in Grodno, has not made a final choice yet and expects that the "PROF-holidays" will help him decide on the faculty and specialty. In any case, Maxim is going to apply for admission to Yanka Kupala State University next year:
– I choose between two areas – electronic marketing and programming. During the "PROF-holidays" I plan to visit both the faculty of mathematics and computer science, and the faculty of Economics and management. I want to learn more about each of the specialties that interest me and make a final choice.
Students of 20 educational institutions from different cities of the region joined the project. As part of the career guidance intensive, potential applicants will visit 8 Faculties of Yanka Kupala State University. The project participants will be offered various formats of events, including business quizzes, training sessions, team games and creative workshops. The results of the first career guidance intensive organized by Kupala University for high school students will be summed up on November 5 at a round table.

The first stage of rehearsal testing takes place at the Yanka Kupala State University

Students of the Grodno region will be able to test their knowledge in the first stage until December 10.
At Yanka Kupala State University, where rehearsal testing is taking place, those who wish have already written about two thousand tests and are actively continuing to register. The most popular subjects are Russian, Mathematics, English, and History of Belarus. By the way, some applicants use the fact that RT provides two options for each subject, and write the test twice.
Testing on the basis of Yanka Kupala State University takes place every day except Thursday. Registration ends two days before the day of testing for the subject. The number of seats for each day is limited, but you can always choose a different convenient date.
– The most important thing is that RT allows you to check your knowledge, fill in and systematize it, and eliminate the gaps found. When applicants participate in the second or third stage of testing, they see how the result changes. This is a good tool for self-monitoring and preparation for CT, - says Irina Shinkevich, Deputy Head of the Regional Centre for Testing and Career Guidance for Young People.
You can take part in the first stage of testing both in Grodno and in regional centers. In addition, the online format is available on the website of the Republican Institute of Knowledge Control.
