Betriebspraktikum in Frankreich für kaufmännisches Berufskolleg Fremdsprachen
Start date: May 10, 2015, End date: Jul 10, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

By attending the Berufskolleg Fremdsprachen the German students will automatically be instructed in English, French and Spanish, thus gaining competence and skills in foreign languages. On the one hand, this will enable them to meet the challenges of the globalized world of work, on the other, the school will provide an excellent basis for a university/polytechnic career. To meet the requirements of global competitors and internationally oriented universities advanced knowledge in foreign languages as well as job skills are of the utmost importance for young applicants. It is obligatory for our students to take part in a four-week job experience scheme while staying with host families in the host country. Selected French companies and shops provide the cornerstones for future mobility within Europe and for higher job qualifications in business sectors which largely depend on personnel with advanced foreign language skills and with a high degree of intercultural competence. This four-week stay in France will grant the students who participate in this project an insight into the practical aspects of their theoretic knowledge and it will help them to optimize their foreign language skills. Experiencing different cultural backgrounds concerning family and business life will strengthen their confidence and will contribute to the young people’s character formation by encouraging self-reliance and a sense of responsibility for themselves and others. This stay abroad combined with the improvement of foreign language skills will have effects on students‘ school performances back in their home country, a fact, which has been proven by the results of the compulsory oral examinations in French. In addition, there is a growing interest among French and German employers in our school leavers, which also confirms the high value of this program. The constructive and highly professional cooperation between the partnership schools «Lycée Ferrer-Monnet» (Lille), «Lycée Jules Verne» (Saverne) and Handelslehranstalt Bühl provides the basis for such a successful project. International companies in Germany and France are looking for employees and trainees who meet the advanced requirements regarding foreign language and social skills. As a result, this project will contribute to securing local and regional workplaces and improving the chances for all participants to find suitable jobs.
