Thematic Business Bridging and OSO

Ranum Efterskole College has developed a new bridge-building project in collaboration with UU-Center Vesthimmerland and a number of youth education institutions. The students have to choose between different worlds or industries in their bridge-building, where the different secondary schools work together to give the student a realistic experience of the path to a particular industry.

Experiences from the bridge-building course are included in the students' Compulsory Independent Assignment (OSO), which is written after the course.

Read more about the different worlds below and watch the whole process by clicking on this link. The TEBO course is selected before 7 June on the School Plan. You choose by logging into the School Plan under Studies->Questionnaire->Thematic Vocational Bridging and OSO.

You choose by logging in school curriculum under Surveys->Questionnaire->Thematic Business Bridging and OSO.

At the Parent Talks on 17 November, we invite parents who work in the different worlds to give presentations about their education and experiences.

The blue world

At MARTEC we train for the maritime world and you will experience a number of things that you encounter in this "blue world".

You will experience practical seamanship, where you will learn to tie various knots, a proud tradition in the maritime world, which is also used on our school ship "DANMARK".

Security is also an issue that permeates everything we do in this world. That's why, among other things, you'll also be taking a trip in a survival suit and a dip in the pool, or soup, as we also call the sea. J

In addition, we also test your ability to communicate, because this is also an important discipline in all Maritime professions. All this takes place in our School House, where you will stay overnight and be part of the afternoon and evening activities, just like our Maritime Students (formerly HF Maritime) students are.

The white world is about health, people and welfare. Through practical exercises, we will explore how the body works and develops, why we get sick and what can be done when there is a malfunction in the human organism.

Is the body just a machine that can be repaired when it is broken or does it also require therapy and care? Can we program humans as robots or does it require more advanced technologies to develop the brain and mind? Whether you are interested in healing the body as a doctor, nurse or physiotherapist, want to work as a pharmacist in drug manufacturing or would rather focus on human development and the psyche as a teacher, educator or psychologist, this course will give you an insight into how to work in the different branches of health sciences and in the welfare and education sectors.
