E to E - Education to Employment
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The Europe 2020 strategy identifies five strategic objectives for the EU, among others employment and education. The participating schools of this partnership all in various ways face the challenges of youth unemployment and students leaving school with poor or insufficient results, and therefore wishes to launch an exchange project with these issues in focus. The main objectives of the project is on pupils’ level to increase the pupils’ awareness of the clear connection between education and employment on an integrated European labour market, and to help the pupils to communicate their skills internationally; on staff level the project aims develop teaching methods that motivate the students to finish their education and helps students to see employment in an international perspective; on community and school level the objective is to establish and deepen contacts with actors on the local labour market and between the partner schools. The main objectives of the project will decide the project activities that will be planned during the teachers’ planning meetings. The general plan of the project activities is however set to work in the home schools, exchange activities during the terms via eTwinning and transnational meetings, where the project partners will present results of the work in each school, evaluate and plan the following semester, and visit local businesses to learn more about the local labour market. The transnational meetings will in all involve around 150 participants (staff and pupils; guests and hosts). The work between the meetings will hopefully involve as many participants as possible in all partner schools, therefore the project tasks must be designed in communication between the partner schools and among staff and pupils. The project tasks will vary, but always be strongly connected to the project themes and designed to encourage the use of ICT and language skills. An important help in these tasks will be the Europass tool. E-mail and the eTwinning tool will be used for communication between the schools during terms. The project will hopefully lead to an increased awareness among students of the importance of education and the fact that the future labour market is international. Staff will be inspired to work with the project themes and to find ways to do it within the national curricula. Contacts between the partner schools and with actors of the local labour market will continue and last longer than the project itself.
