In an expanding European Union the demand for skilled workers is continuously growing. Today’s working life has also become more diverse and flexible. Simultaneously, the requirements of professional and social skills of construction craftsmen have increased. This project aims at raising our trainees’ awareness to work in Europe across regional and national borders within their initial training. We intend to improve the basic factor of human capital in the construction industry and to increase the chances for students in their future professional life. Therefore, Knobelsdorff School participates in international education projects.According to our plan, the project should last for two years with 85 mobilities in different partner countries.Participants are:Young people of the second and third year of training in their initial training (carpenters, masons, joiners, concrete workers, plumbers, electricians and metal workers). Duration of mobility activities are up to three weeks. Students of Knobelsdorff-Schule in the area of technical assistant for monument conservation will also participate in mobility of up to 3 weeks.Trainers, teachers and management personnel will take part in mobility from 2 to 19 days.Transfer of innovation:The mobility of trainers, teachers and executives leads to insights about the organization, the methods and the strategies of the partner, and even a new impetus. This is an important contribution to the development of curricula and the school program and promote the implementation of reform initiatives.An awareness of the social importance of international partnerships for research and teaching will be created. International exchanges should not be an end in themselves, but should have culturally inspired and quality enhanced learning results. Knobelsdorff-Schule aims at improving the ability to participate in democratic life in Europe, making our educational system more efficient and helping young people to enter the European labour market more easily. The project focusses on providing the accompanying key competences, such as improving language and professional skills, as well as on peaceful interaction with other people and cultures.
