20: How to step out of line

Seminar / Seminar
english language

As Teach for Austria Fellows, the chairs are trained to jump into new adventures and enter areas where they do not have extensive previous experience. They acquire their knowledge “on the job”. They would like to pass these experiences on to the seminar participants. This is what the seminar is all about. Participants will take a look at different areas and career paths; via politics, economy, society as a whole or indeed through the educational system. Together, we will analyze where you can dive in and how to do it. With our experience we want to support you in creating a concrete plan and taking your next little steps towards reaching your goal. Let’s start our journey – from vision to action!
