Importance Studying issues of early professional self-determination among students induces the creation of production plant tours to spur the interest in production professions and help students make informed decisions on their future professions. In this respect, it is reasonable to determine how much students know about production plants of their native areas as the basis for organizing walking tours around the full production cycle at the region's enterprises.
Objectives The research analyzes what pupils at high secondary schools, colleges and first-year students of higher schools know about key production enterprises of the region and their products.
Results We examine the premises for implementing introductory and learning programs and propose how such programs could be called. We also indicate the significance of such introductory tour programs as part of learning walkthroughs. The article also shows the role of such introductory tour programs at the region's enterprises as part of career guidance and educational work with students. We also raise the issue of production museums of professional achievements as an alternative to cultural and entertaining activities held at schools, colleges and universities. We tested the key idea of the research by surveying the target audience.
Conclusions and Relevance It is important and timely to create introductory tours at regional production enterprises for students as they combine the productive and educational processes. The close relationship between learning and production should make students more interested in blue-collar work, involve them into scientific and technological processes, and motivate for an early choice of profession, igniting their interest in the history and economy of their country.
