Be Europe 6
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
As there will be a shortage of skilled employees and a higher demand of people who do know how to act on the international market it becomes more and more important to develop the skills of young skilled people. As one project of the initiative Go.for.europe Be Europe aims to provide a specific offer for apprentices who do their vocational training in the crafts and trades sector in Baden-Württemberg. As well the number of mobilities of apprentices shall be increased within the project. Be Europe aims to assign 120 apprentices who do an apprenticeship in the crafts and trades sector. The project shall strengthen the participant's professional competences with group assignments being organized from autumn 2015 to spring 2017.
The target group of the project are female and male apprentices from the crafts and trades sector who participate in a German vocational apprenticeship registered in the Handicrafts Regulations Act. The apprenticeship is the participant's first vocational education and participants will have completed their first year. The project will assign 80 apprentices for an internship to England and 40 apprentices are to be sent to Ireland. The four-weeks-stay abroad will consist of an English course in the first week and a three-weeks-internship in an English or Irish company. The partners at place will provide the necessary support and will take care that learning objectives will be reached.
It will be taken care that apprentices will be placed in companies that fit to the skills and the needs of the apprentices. The apprentices shall improve their language skills and acquire international and intercultural competences. The project strives to improve apprentice's skills on the labour market and to prepare them for the requirements on the European labour market.
In the long term Be Europe expects to strengthen the international cooperation ant to brighten the international thinking of the project's stakeholders. Foreign work experiences and a mutual exchange of prospective skilled workers and experiences employees shall become common sense within the working environment of the companies. Be Europe expects to establish cooperations between English, Irish and German companies, organizations and people. The objective is to enhance the exchange of professional competences and working methods that are to be used on a long-term base. A benefit would be an institutionalisation of mobilities within the different professions so that ideally a mutual exchange will establish on a long-term run.
