Business Education in Europe
Start date: 01 Jun 2016,
End date: 30 Nov 2017
Due to globalisation vocational training programs require more and more international orientation. This applies especially to our trainees who are studying to work with foreign languages and are thus prepared for an occupation abroad or in relation to partners from different countries. To make sure that theoretical knowledge can be transferred to practical tasks and in order to create a close relation between the working world and vocational training programs, we integrate an eight-week period of work placement into our programs. It is particularly meaningful to carry out these work placements in other European countries, since markets are growing together and career opportunities improve on a joint European labour market.We scheduled the work placement period between the first and second year of our students’ vocational training. On the one hand this means that they already gained a lot of knowledge relevant to their occupation and the language of their host country and on the other hand trainees get a valuable orientation concerning their career entry. In addition a work placement in a foreign country strengthens young people’s social skills such as intercultural competence and self-confidence which are necessary for a successful and content professional and private life.In 2016 and 2017 alltogether 20 students will do an eight week internship in a company in England, France or Spain and thus explore the european labour market.
