Europa - kreativ
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
The beneficiaries of mobility projekcts will acquire international vocational and personal competencies in several fields.
During this project the main emphasis lies on the aspect of creativity at work. It is combined with the aspect of intercultural learning.
Creativity in regard to professional competences can be inspired through and result from knowledge about work organisaion, technologies and products of other countries. But also using foreign language skills and intercultural competenicies in an unfamiliar, new working athmosphere of another Eurpean country contributes to the important experience of learning in a real context. Individual work placements in Europe contribute to more flexibility and self-reliance among the participants - both a solid basis for competence and creativity in vocational training.
But they are also instruments of individual learning and improvement in initial dual vocational training. Through creating accurately fitting tasks for the duration of the work placement the student can conduct learning units on a practical basis and of high a quality standard. When the participants for the individual work placements are chosen their strenghs, interests and motivation is considered taken into account.
Ten participants per yerar are going to be sent into two different European countries (Finland, UK). They are students who make an apprenticeship in media design (digital and print), wood working, hotel- and catering business and they are apprentices to become a chef.
The acitivities abroad allow the participants a deep insight into working methods and procedures in the intercultural context.
Already existing vocational skills are meant to be improved by the work placements abroad and broaded by the international aspect. By the accurately fitting choice of paricipant and receiving company after previous consultations and agreements and by the tasks that the participant is supposed to fullfil during his/her work placement the quality in mobility can be guaranteed.
In the long term the mobility project 'Europa - kreativ' might have an effect on quality objectives in vocational training in the region and might increase the employability of the beneficiaries on the labour market as well as enhance the competitiveness of the involved companies.
