Tirsdag kveld var det utdanningsmesse for 10. klassinger i Sykkylven. Fem videregående skoler, med ulike tilbud og studieretninger, presenterte seg for godt over 100 elever med foreldre ved Sykkylven ungdomsskule.
Tuesday night there was a Recruitment Fair at Sykkylven Lower Secondary School (grades 8-10). Five different regional high schools (grades 11-13) were present, including Sykkylven and Stranda (I teach at both schools). All Norwegian 10th graders must make a big decision at age 15, since the Norwegian high school program has a unified upper secondary structure that coordinates general studies (3 years) and vocational studies (2-4 years). So if you want to become a car mechanic or a chef, you choose vocational studies at high school. If you want to become a teacher, accountant or a lawyer, you choose general studies.
More than a hundred 10th graders attended the Fair along with their parents.
Kokkene Erik og Helga fra ungdomsbedriften "Sunn Snacks UB" kunne by på smaksprøver.
Chef students Erik and Helga from the Student Enterprise "Sunn Snacks UB" ("Healthy Snacks") offered samples to all visitors.
