Productive Learning in Saxony


In summer 2008, the Free State of Saxony decided to carry out a five-year long Productive Learning pilot project. An important objective of the Saxon Ministry of Culture is to reduce the number of pupils who leave school without formal qualifications. Furthermore, Productive Learning is to pave the way for the transition from school to vocational training by connecting general education with individual vocational orientation, thus making a positive contribution to the development of sound prospects for life after school.
This is of enormous significance for the development of the regional economy. The successful relocation of big enterprises to Saxony, as well as the rising number of firms in the region results in an increasing demand for skilled employees. However, the demographic reality, and its not very encouraging prospect for the future, will make it impossible to meet this increasing demand through the current regional skilled workforce.

Preparations were made throughout the school year 2008/09 for the introduction of Productive Learning. At the start of the school year 2009/10, PL- learning groups of approximately 20 year-8 pupils each were established in seven schools (Oberschulen) in Saxony (cf. list of participating schools below). More than 80% of these pupils successfully completed the class curriculum for this level.

Starting with school year 2013/14 one more school in Leipzig has established Productive Learning.


Project Overview:


01.08.2008 to 31.07.2014
