Arbeiten und lebenslanges Lernen in einem vereinten Europa
Start date: Jul 1, 2014, End date: Jun 30, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project intends to meet young people’s fear of working and living abroad and to enable them to use the chances and opportunities of a united Europe. „Working and lifelong learning in a united Europe„ is directed at vocational students and teachers of HLA Hameln. Because of both, global connectedness and the conditions on the labour market, enterprises have highly changed their requirements towards students and young people. With this, requirements towards education, schools and teachers are changing as well. In order to profit from the possibilities of a united Europe and the common market, participants of our project aim at improving their mobility, at acquiring knowledge of foreign language but also intercultural competences as well as professional competences and expertise concerning business administration and management. Most of the students take part in an additional qualification called Europakaufmann/-frau”. Therefore, they are required to work least 3weeks abroad in industrial business management, wholesale management or as office clerks. With that our students will be prepare for the challenges and requirements not only of the national but also of the European labour market. Students will be supported and accompanied by their employers as well as by our school. To prepare the students for their internships and their stays abroad adequately, it is important to train as well the educational staff of HLA. Teachers need to improve their language skills and their intercultural competences as well as their knowledge in project management in an international context. For this reason, four teachers of the HLA will take part in further education in C.L.I.L. lessons (bilingual instruction) in England, in intercultural project management in Portugal and in job-shadowing in Spain. The acquired knowledge will not only help to improve the quality of vocational training but to strengthen HLA’s reputation as “Europaschule” (European school) in our region. In long term it will lead to an increased mobility of more and more teachers of HLA. Furthermore, it will strengthen our European partnerships and possibly initiated new partnerships.
