Critical Thinking for Successful Jobs (Think4Jobs)
Goal: The project aims to strengthen insufficient University-Business Cooperation (UBC) for the effective promotion, development, support and assessment of students’ Critical Thinking (CT) through their transition into a professional context using apprenticeships as a privileged interface in order to “bridge the gap” between their skills and those needed by the labour market.
Educational research and employers repeatedly report a mismatch between the students’ CT skills and the labour market (and societal) needs. Thus, it is crucial to prepare students for complex, ever-evolving or yet non-existent job demands more than merely teaching them content.
