Erasmus + für Europakaufleute 2015_2016
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The vocational school “BBS Lingen – Kaufmännische Fachrichtungen” (Commercial disciplines) has agreed on a common vision. The fundamental proposition of this model is that we encourage our students through intercultural learning and European partnerships. They are supposed to develop understanding and tolerance for people of different cultural backgrounds, to see themselves as European citizens and to prove themselves in a European, international work environment. This model is considered as an incentive to strengthen the international orientation of our school. Therefore, it was obvious that we have created the additional qualification for the “European Merchant” and the related mobility project two years ago. Especially due to the mobility projects we can achieve the objectives set out in our common vision, encourage the social skills of our students and increase their chances on the labor market through the additional qualification. Our students participating in the mobility project, strive all for a commercial career and are usually in the second year of their apprenticeship. Over the next two years, we want to give a total of 20 trainees the opportunity to participate in the mobility project. A prerequisite for participation is an application with the “Europass-CV”. In an internship of at least three weeks, the trainees are supposed to integrate themselves into an existing team of another culture and to participate actively in working life. The internship-companies belong to the same industry, such as the training companies of the dual training in Germany. The learning contents are exactly tailored to the profile of each participant. In advance this point is ensured by a learning agreement. The internship is confirmed by the foreign internship company by signing the “Europass-Mobility”. In the past, discussions with companies have always made clear that the demand for skilled workers with an international focus increases. Here, the project offers a very good possibility to prepare the participants to the increased internationalization of regional companies. Additional offers, such as the ability to complete a training period abroad and also to connect it with the addition qualification of the “European Merchant”, significantly increase the attractiveness of the dual training system. In addition to that, the pan-European awareness of typical German vocational training in a dual system increases. Through the European projects, the “BBS Lingen – Kaufmännische Fachrichtungen” can improve the quality of its educational programmes to meet the needs and desires of students, businesses and the public.
