Our number one goal at Handelsakademie (Business School) Steyr is to provide our students with the necessary skills and competences to compete in the modern labour market. Our claim "Where careers start" says it best. Since Austrias participation in the EU the focus of our curriculum was focused on International Business, Marketing and International Trade and Cultural Studies. On top of that we provide 5 european languages to study and implemented CLIL transversal along our teaching subjects.To make sure we can provide the knowledge to our students we need trained CLIL teachers as well as the continous exchange of experiences in the fields of pedagogy, didactics as well as in elaborating curriculums with other educational institutions and schools.Participants: Seven teachers from different subjects will undergo a language training in a foreign country which also includes CLIL didactics. Two teachers will also participate at a Job-Shadowing to gain practial experiences and share insights especially on the topics "Drop-Outs", Individualization of lessons, and curriculum development.
