This part is relevant because it helps and motivates professional teachers to help students discover themselves and find the right workspace. This is relevant because the lack of motivation is characterized by not only students but also teachers. It is relevant, clearly presented and structured.

I would like to highlight another important key role of the company tutor who can help the student identify his/her professional profile. Supporting the student during all the internship lifetime, the company tutor can help the student become aware of his/her strengths and weaknesses, which is one of the most difficult tasks for the student!

The module about the world of work is quite interesting because it creates a link between the real world and the reality of the job market.
