The project „Europa Entdecken!“ is based on a pool project initiated by the vocational college Jane-Addams-Schule and by GEB. VET learners from the school BBS Melle were awarded for several years in row scholarships from this project in order to carry out work placements across Europe.
The project was so successful that from year to year new vocational colleges for social pedagogy joined the partnership.
This new and first own application of BBS Melle refers not only to the social pedagogy field but included as well work placements for learners in the economy and management areas. This means it extends to the dual education/ apprenticeships scheme.
Thru this project both groups of apprentices have the chance to experience a vocational training placement in another country, with a length of 6 to 10 weeks. Thanks to the time spent in a work place learners will gain real life experience and soft skills, like e.g. social, intercultural, etc. The new acquired skills will boost their employability and the receiving organizations will benefit as well directly from the exchange and work done by the learners. So a win-win context will be generated and both will discover Europe! („Europa Entdecken!“
