Entwicklung von internationalen Beziehungen für Schüler der BBS Lingen zur Erweiterung beruflicher Handlungskompetenzen und Verbesserung der Chancen auf dem europäischen Arbeitsmarkt
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Due to lack of language experience of the trainees it becomes apparent that bilingual teaching can be a demanding issue. However, many companies in the region are looking for professionals who can be employed abroad or can communicate with partners from abroad. 20 students of technical college of hospitality and catering trade, are going to do internship and take part in the Erasmus "key action 1" project. This measure is supposed to respond to the above-mentioned challenges. The interns are accommodated in host families for 16 days. In Hastings they are prepared for intercultural and language issues by English colleagues of the partner institution. In order to actively involve them in the process they have to give reguarly feedback about their experiences to the dispatching institution. In addition to it the interns have to write a report about the measure. This documentation is significant to insure arranging necessary steps or the future development of the project. The participants lose their shyness of using the English language and gain independence and self-confidence; at the work place and for their daily routines. They are enabled to gradually improve their skills, to learn and deal with job-specific information in English. Thus the interns enhance their knowledge and skills which means that they improve their chances on the European labor market. According to the school-program of BBS Lingen an intensification of internationalization is committed. The two participating teachers will obtain a variety of ideas and proposals for new teaching- and learning methods by sitting in on classes. They also improve their vocabulary in terms of professional and everyday language, which will have a considerable impact on their (bilingual) teaching. They cooperate with colleagues from the partner institution and from the examination board and continually extent the school's curriculum and examination procedures. The experience abroad is supposed to facilitate judging language competences (EQF) of the students in the future. Finally by taking part in this measure the attractiveness of the BBS Lingen is supposed to increase in terms of internationalization for students and businesses in the long term.
