Description

Careers Evening

One evening, April / May

One evening a year, the school invites various professionals from different fields to inform our students about their careers and areas of operation. Students from Classes 9 - 12 are allowed to participate, and over the course of the evening, students collect information, ask questions and make contacts.

Careers' Guidance week

Every 2 years, for one week in May

Every 2 years, the GSN invites a professional careers' advisor from an Employment Office in Germany. We normally organise 2 events during this week: one for Classes 9 and 10, and the second for Classes 11 and 12. Additionally all the students are given n the opportunity to have individual careers counselling (at no cost) over the course of the week.

University and Careers Orientation Trip to Germany for Class 11

Before the Christmas Holidays

As part of the Class trip concept of the GSN, there is an annual University and Careers Orientation trip to Germany for students of Class 11. The aim of the trip is to prepare students in a very concrete manner for what studying, living and working in Germany entails. As part of their stay, students visit one (or many) universities (higher education guidance, observing lectures), they live with a German family, and in addition to the careers guidance they receive, they participate in various cultural excursions and activities that they prepare in advance in school. Further information on this trip can be found on Class Trips Concept of the GSN.

Presentation from DAAD

annually

Once a year The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) makes a presentation to students of Classes 9 - 12 on studying in Germany.

Subject "Arbeitslehre"

Continuous

Hauptschule and Realschule students of Classes 6 - 10 who do not do French participate inArbeitslehre lessons, which are timetabled parallel to French lessons(as far as the timetable allows). These lessons aim to introduce them to the world of work in a more practical manner, as opposed to the academic manner of Gymnasium students. They get to know more about important matters in the world of work.

Career Evening 16.05.2019

On the 6th of May, the traditional career evening took place at the DSN. As always, parents, businessmen and employees from various organizations were on site to present their profession to the students of grades 8-11 and to answer questions afterwards. We would like to thank them very much for this.

As every year, the professions were very varied, this year ranging from the Federal Foreign Office to biology and law. 

Berrit Kadoch-Lattorff gave the students an insight into the profession of a doctor. Julia Steinhage and Maximilian Decker introduced the students to the law course. The school chef, Florian Kiem, gave the pupils an insight into "All about food". Travis Heneveld gave an impression of a career in sales. The natural sciences were represented by Michel Lattorff, a biologist. Gerald Neumann explained the digital humanities. Karen Angler represented the study course Political Science and Public Administration. Charlotte Josam gave interested parties a picture of the degree course Innovation and Sustainable Development. Max Mehler and Markus Bollmohr gave the students an insight into the Federal Foreign Office present in Nairobi. Imtiaz Khan gave an introduction to investment. Mike Wenda and Jörn Fiedler introduced the students to the profession of soldier.                                                                                                 

We all had the opportunity to choose three different professions. Between the conversation hours we had a break where we could have drinks and food with the crew of the cafeteria. After the third hour the evening ended.

Career Evening 21.05.2015

The career evening took place on Thursday, May 21st. The school normally invites a few professionals from different work areas. These professionals talk to the students of the 8th-12th class about their qualifications and their careers. This year there were about 10 experts. Students were expected to choose 3 professionals, in whom they are interested in.

I chose professionals from the fields of: philosophy, journalism and a soldier from the German armed forces. While listening to the speaker in philosophy, I learned that you cannot always get a job that relates to what you studied in university. The speaker had studied philosophy in Scotland but now he has his own waste company here in Kenya.

I have an interest in journalism and that is why I chose it. Here, I learned a lot more about this profession, like the duration of the course in university and the pretty and not so pretty sides of journalism. The journalism course takes 5 years in university. To be a journalist you have to be humbled, motivated, have good social behavior and able to often take risks.

At the career evening I not only learned about jobs and qualifications, but also that one should always have a positive attitude in life and one should do what they love.

Celine, Class 9
