Start date: 01 Jul 2016, End date: 30 Jun 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Project Background: Advances in globalisation as well as European Union enlargement and liberalisation of the European labour force have put increasing demands on the professional mobility of apprentices and employees. The facility sending such apprentices seeks to prepare prospective commercial foreign language correspondents, early childhood educators and medical professionals for the increasing qualitative demands of the employment market through a professional education based on an internationally oriented curriculum. Aspects of European integration and intercultural learning in both theoretical and practical phases of the education are of great importance. There are also high professional requirements for the skilled employees performing the training. Continuous further education and qualification in this area are extremely important. The project's goals are to acquire language practice, to obtain specific expertise and methodical knowledge and to attain knowledge of socio-economic structures of the receiving country. Of equal importance is the expansion of social and intercultural competences through real work experience abroad and the critical examination of different cultural norms in the workplace and in education. Excellent preparation of all apprentices for the European labour market is not only a mark of quality for the vocational education facility, it is also a fundamental improvement of apprentices' chances on the labour market at home and abroad. Profile and number of participants: 31 apprentices and commercial foreign language, early childhood and balneotherapist / medical masseurs and vocational teaching staff. Commercial training participants have the chance to expand their acquired knowledge and skills in a practical setting during a stay abroad and enhance social and intercultural competences. The educational focus for early childhood instructor (kindergarten teacher) training is on enabling language development for children and young people, developing international thinking and expanding intercultural skills. The exchange project for kindergarten teachers and balneotherapist / medcial masseurs is an interdisciplinary concept that brings together on a bilateral basis people from two different professional fields for two weeks in a training project. Description of Activities: Stays abroad leading to successful completion of a concrete training module and professional experience in the international field will be conducted for periods of 2 weeks and 12 months between July 2016 and Spring 2018. Together with partners, the above-mentioned objectives will be prepared, organized, supervised and evaluated. Results and Impact: Documentation of learning experience and internships in project folders, at conferences and on the internet.
