Ausbildungswege zu einem Beruf für Schüler mit Migrationshintergrund
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Both schools do have the aim to guide immigrant students though a vocational training. The immigrant students at both schools have in common that they are aged 15 to 19 years, with lack of schooling in their home country, experiences of war and of being refugees, with brief stay in the new country and therefore lack of language skills and lack of knowledge of educational opportunities. The purpose of an exchange between staff from both schools is to compare the conditions and needs seen in this group of students and to have space for reflection on the organization and methodology in its own operations to meet these needs. The exchange will hopefully culminate in new knowledge and alternative methods. The overall aim is that linguistic and cultural differences should not be an obstacle but an asset for students attending a vocational training.Objectives:- Outline of immigrant students conditions and needs to cope with a vocational training- Good practices for validating immigrant student's skills and inform and motivate them for vocational education.- Compilation and reflection on each school's methods to meet these students' abilities and needs.- In-house experience and reflection on transnational communication. The staff's own experiences during the exchange whereas they will be unable to communicate in mother tongue will hopefully lead to deeper understanding of immigrant students' situation (where all knowledge acquisition takes place in a for them foreign language).- Finding out job site requirements to give these students on-the-job training or employment after finished vocational education.Planned activities:In spring 2016 staff rom JLS will visit Österänggymnasiet i Sweden. This exchange will have as its aim to outline immigrant students’ conditions and needs to cope with a vocational training. The outline will be drawn by comparing a similar group of students in two different organizations and countries. We assume this comparison will make it easier to answer the question what conditions and needs are created by external circumstances and what are specific and related to the target group.IAnother theme of this exchange will be compilation of methods to meet the target group's needs and conditions. A survey of the job-specific requirements in each country will also be an aim of the exchange why visits and interviews at workplaces will take place in both countries.We hope that the exchange will lead to an outline of successful methods in vocational training of immigrant students. Integration and evaluation of this new knowledge might be the aim of a second application. Hopefully future exchanges will take place of students with migration background between the two countries, not only between the schools but as well between workplaces.
