Quality education for young students implies, on the one hand, wondering about their identities, contexts, potentials and expectations. On the other hand, the complex, present scenarios challenge the processes of curricular construction, development and implementation to suggest new ways to create a school for these young students, which implies changes in the main learning topics as well as in the perspectives, interpretations and educational practices.
Within this framework, the proposal of the curricular area “Training for Life and Work” in the educational offer of the Compulsory Secondary Education of the Ministry of Education of the Province of Córdoba in Argentina outlines a curriculum which, articulating education, the life realm and the work realm, encourages new ways to relate with the socially relevant learning and the diversification of the students’ fields in school or out-of-school experience. For that matter, it opens varied areas of participation in context to the young students in high school and gives opportunities so that from their present they can start to project themselves in the vocational and socio-occupational dimensions with the objective of an effective social inclusion.
