Balanced research and practice
High ability is still mainly connotated with academic domains and research based data are numerous in this field. But when it comes to vocational trainings or professional talents research is comparatively sparse.
In order to create a new tradition in talking about highly able persons we want to demonstrate how we can integrate apprentices and their practical intelligence into high ability research and practice.
School leaving certificates playing still an important role in judging whether someone is talented or not many young people are not detected in their potential which lies out of school subjects. The keyword is identification plus coaching and training. This is why a special training for vocational trainers together with enterprises as well as a tool for accompanying coaching was developed. The target audience of educators, professional trainers and parents will get the chance to discuss the tool and the dual vocational training of Austria.
