The project „EME" contributes decisively to the international and European strategies of the college for social pedagogy Ahornberg. Moreover, by offereing the compulsory internships also in other European countries the vocational training for Early Years Education will become more attractive and competitive. So potentially the school will attract more students.
The college for social pedagogy Ahornberg delivers state-recognised vocational trainings in Early Years Education. The vocational training has a duration of three years, and comprehends several compulsory internships.
Through practical work in social education the students should become familiar with different fields of work, and fully embrace practical working conditions in their field of education. The participants should improve their knowledge, skills and competencies during the training process at school.
The results of the internship in the hosting country will be certified and recognised by the sending partner – German school or other relevant educational body. The learning outcomes of the international internship are relevant to undertake exams in Germany.
In Germany, Early Years Education staff deal on a daily basis with children and young people with a migration background. Across the country the number of nurseries providing care to a majority of children with a migratory background is rising substantially. On the other hand, only a small number of Early Years Education staff are experienced in working with migrants or are migrants themselves.
The goal of the project is to provide an opportunity for pupils from the college for social pedagogy Ahornberg and other pupils from similar educational field, to undertake their obligatory internship abroad. This should nonetheless be carried out according to the compulsory quality standards and educational requirements of the federal states, and recognised as a component of obligatory training. The funding given by the Erasmus+ programme should increase the number of pupils who complete part of their vocational education abroad.
In addition to the specified and certified learning outcomes, further qualifications such as intercultural, language and social competencies ought to be acquired throughout the stay abroad.
There is a special focus upon the experience of being a migrant, or ´foreigner´, and working through the issues arising from such a perspective of oneself.
This project proposal is addressed to 54 VET learners plus 10 VET staff.
