The Hi5 Approach 2018-03-16T08:35:32+00:00

Jobortunity uses two core approaches: 3H and Hi5, emphasising personal development of individuals. These approaches are used with youth, in consultancy work (organisational support, coaching and training of employees) and in coaching.


Head: knowledge of service industry and own capacity

Hands: social, communication and employability skills ( job skills companies do this)

Heart: positive and professional work attitude

Jobortunity focuses on the heart (attitude) in combination with giving students new insights and understanding about the job market and employment (knowledge). It facilitates skills training through an 8-month apprenticeship program in partnership with companies.


The main focus in Jobortunity is on ’the heart’ i.e. attitude therefore the entire curriculum is set up around Hi5, a training method developed by Jobortunity. All students’ development is recorded and analyses are done using a Hi5 Tracking system. Jobortunity developed more than 100 training lessons. For example in Thumb finger we teach about being professional by taking responsibility for your action; by leaning how to present yourself and understanding the importance of time management.

Hi5 is ‘a way of working’,  ‘a way of life’ and ‘a way of training’ suitable for anyone looking for employment but also anyone with employment. Staff development is needed for high quality company performance. Jobortunity offers attitude training for staff of companies. We practice what we preach.
