- Does the management of conservatories and universities have sufficient opportunities to respond to the needs of the labor market? Do they have an overview of it? What complicates their optimization in the field of legislation, official administration? What tools / conditions do they need for this?
- Do / can schools initiate (anticipate) initiate new fields, job positions?
- Do students have the opportunity to know their optimal employment corresponding to their personality and skills? (access to coaching, mentoring, individualization of teaching content, internships, workshops, etc.)
- What problems do graduates encounter most often when entering practice? Do we know that? Who is currently finding out and how?
- How do potential employers see it in the field of education, art production, professional workplaces?
- What employers lack, which job positions, where there is an overhang, what skills are developed, which are not?
- What are the general career risks in the field of classical music, in particular in orchestral practice, in opera production, in independent production, in professional work.
- Does the field of classical music need the status of an artist? How should it be set (education, source of income, length and minimum scope of experience…) What obligations and benefits in relation to the general legal and social context? (bridging support, advantageous loans on the basis of special insurance, preferential training and counseling, physiotherapy, etc.)
- What do you currently consider most important on this topic?
