SIS is one of the pioneers of the high school project "Praxisberater". This cooperation project of the Saxon Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs with the Federal Employment Agency was launched in June 2013 as a support measure for individual promotion for career and study orientation. Each student receives a development plan from the practical advisor according to the results of an analysis of his or her potential, which is coordinated with the teacher, parents and, of course, the student himself or herself. In addition, the practical advisors establish and maintain contacts with companies and offer individual counseling for students and parents in grades 7 and 8.
The Subject Practice-Oriented Instruction (PU) is an additional offering at our schools and part of the mandatory schedule. Classes are held in teaching cabinets equipped with a pool of tools and machines, computer technology and high-quality work materials.
Each 5th and 6th grade student visits a company for a few hours over three days with a special research assignment provided by the school. The result is to be a presentation and a wall newspaper for the company. In addition, the students present their practical experience in class and at the parents' evening.
In these classes, practice-oriented instruction provides the first fundamental insights into practical work procedures, development and production processes, and the economic contexts of various occupational groups.
The Reinsdorf and TRIAS Elsterberg high schools have already been awarded the Saxon Seal of Quality for Career Orientation for the high quality of their career orientation. The other schools work according to the same concept, which means that a uniform quality can be expected.

In the practice-oriented lessons (PU) as well as in connection with TC/computer science/WTH, we teach the students versatile basic skills and abilities, e.g.
In the subject Economy-Technology-Household (WTH), a so-called company foundation project is initiated from grade 7 onwards, which is further developed in the following grades. Through the practical/theoretical work on a concrete example, the students internalize both the interrelationships of the individual subjects and the requirements and necessity of learning for their future lives to a particular extent. In the interdisciplinary project, they deal with the following points, among others:
At the beginning of the project, each company receives a fictitious starting capital. Then it is necessary to deal with business registration, tax office registration, bank, company premises, tools, necessary working materials, etc. Offers have to be written, loans taken out and processes calculated, employment contracts prepared and wages calculated. Of course, creating a homepage (in computer science classes) is part of the tasks, and the possibility of insolvency is also discussed. For companies abroad, offers have to be written in English or Spanish, and the students also have to find out about the customs there.
