Das RBZ1 ist Partner in der Region und in Europa
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2016
The concept of the RBZ1 (Regionales Berufsbildungszentrum Soziales, Ernährung und Bau) includes European issues and especially the European professional training. Mutual understanding, communicating and collaborating across Europe is our offer for our pupils and our teaching staff.
We collaborate with comparable educational institutions within Europe and worldwide in order that the future prospects of our pupils do not end at the borders. Due to intensive contact to the professional work (especially to our dual partners and to cultural and sociopolitical institutions of our region) the RBZ1 contributes with this project to the active EU citizenship and a European consciousness.
As a group of people our priority target are the pupils and the teaching staff of the vocational fields nutrition, domestic economy, social pedagogy, wood engineering, construction technique, body care and health: in total we mobilize 12 pupils and 8 teachers in Cambridge and the Balearic Islands. The trainees visit and participate in companies on the Balearic Islands and the teachers are going to visit the Balearic Islands and Cambridge in order to work on the curriculum of the countries and the implementation of European certifications.
One goal of this mobilization is to motivate pupils for lifetime learning, to minimize the dropout rate of pupils and trainees and to offer trainees the possibility to do part of their vocational training in other European countries so that this is being accepted by the companies of our region as an integrated part of the apprenticeship.
The training staff examines whether the national qualification framework shares characteristics or displays specific differences, if the European quality framework for lifetime learning (EQR) is used and if the professional qualifications and skills (certified by the vocational training certificates) are comparable to those in Cambridge and the Balearic Islands. This should result in greater recognition and transparency of the European certificates by the companies in the region. Furthermore job shadowing is intended to be promoted. Due to the collaborations with our partners and the conjoint development of technical and methodical contents in the professional training, our goal is to arrange for the recognition and transparency of achievements obtained in European countries in the above mentioned vocational fields. For that purpose the stays of the trainees and the teaching staff are being prepared in close collaboration with our partners. The practical trainings are closely accompanied by visits, internet documentation and communication so that the trainees recognize their stay as a fixed part of their professional training. For this kind of communication and documentation IKT skills are necessary and can be deepened.
We would appreciate to significantly increase the number of pupils and teachers who decide to go abroad. The experiences in other European countries should contribute to a better understanding of other mentalities and working methods. Furthermore it should produce new ideas and methods of teaching for our school life. The stays should have a motivating effect in order to promote learning and teaching processes. Last but not least our project is intended to contribute to the attractiveness of our school as a European school for future pupils and to intensify the contacts to the professional work and especially our dual partners in order to be a reliable for lifetime European learning in the region.
