Erweiterung der interkulturellen Kompetenzen zur Förderung der europäischen Dimension am OSZ Lotis
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Tourism competence Comunication, Contact & Culture in Spain: The mobility project is directed to the practical and theoretical training needs of travel and incoming agents who are part of the dual training system at OSZ Lotis in Berlin. Travel and incoming agents sell journeys to private or business travelers with domestic or international destinations. They also have to keep in touch with international partners. The mastering of foreign languages, experienced geographic insights of different countries and cultures, the ability for planning and organizing events or trips, the readiness to work relatively independent, with pleasure for team work and communication, as well as the readiness for making further individual education efforts, has a favorable effect on the touristic sales conversation and the integration of the trainee into the labor market. This is the starting point of the project in mind. During the tourism workshop the trainees shall learn several hard and soft skills in the tourism sector. The objectives are learning Spanish - in closed group with a three-week intensive course by 20 hours/week and to get to know the Spanish tourism market better. Therefore sightseeing day trips to touristic meaningful places have to be developed and carrying out by the trainees. Three enterprises of the tourism industry have to be visited and interviewed. Another important aim is the training of intercultural competence. Here the intensive contact with the Spanish neighborhood, the teaching of the Sevillana dance, the joint cooking experience of Spanish cuisine shall contribute to this objective. During the workshop the vocational school subject of "Projects & Exercises" shall be tested in an extracurricular way in Spain. This is a general lesson involving many subjects. Particularly the subjects of "Business Processes in Tourism", but also communication in a foreign language and IT are involved. All results of the above described activities have to be written down and presented to an audience at the end of the stay. When the participation has been successful all participants will obtain the foreign language certificate of the Colegio Maravillas in the different levels according to standards of the European reference framework for foreign languages achieved previously and presented by the Spanish board of tourism. Furthermore the euro passport mobility and a participation confirmation of the OSZ Lotis will be handed over to every participant.
