Európai mobilitások a Fallerban
Start date: Jul 1, 2015,
End date: Jun 30, 2016
Our school is a traditional vocational training institution located in the town of Varpalota, Hungary. At present, we are training about 500 students at secondary technical and vocational levels. Trade-marketing and mechanics are the most numerous ones among the various professional fields provided. In the past few years, we took part in several mobility programmes involving the teachers and students from the fields mentioned above. The experiences of these projects, just like our students and colleagues facing the increased requirements, motivate us to take part in right from the first phase of ERASMUS+ that is initiated in 2014. This year’s tender contains mobility activities of 2015-16. The Croatian school is partner of our mobility programme in the school year of 2014-15, too. The relationship with our Finnish and Austrian partners is also intense, as both parties are experienced and their versatile profile makes them capable of guiding our international engagement and reaching our goals of modernisation. Since our Croatian and Finnish partners are also planning to implement mobility projects in our institution, our project is based on the principle of mutuality. Our project includes the following elements: we organise an extensive training for the colleagues provided by the Croatian partner institution. The participants will be chosen from among the theoretical teachers of trade, practical trainers, leaders of professional field, and from the teachers of foreign language for specific purposes with the use of internal tenders. The most important fields of the extensive training are: the comparison of vocational training of the partner countries, ; the role of certificates proving vocational training, the formal, non-formal and informal ways of gaining knowledge, the acknowledgement of skills and competences at European level. Throughout the training, the practical training sites will be visited and methodologies will be demonstrated to the visitors. In March 2015 eight students of metalwork take part in a 19-day-long practical training in the Croatian vocational school. The programme implemented with the Finnish partner: in 2016 six students of trade and business take part in a 28-day-long practical training in the schools of JEDU. According to the workprogramme, the vocational training will take part in the workshops of the schools in the first and fourth weeks, while it will be continued in the shops provided by the partner organisation.The programme implemented with ECOMEDIA: in November, 2015 we participate with 2 members at the conference.According to the work-programme, the training should be accomplished in the school workshop throughout the first two weeks, while the rest of the training takes place in a workshop of a local industrial park provided by the partner institution on the fifth workday of the third week. During the training period, a project work-like mutual activity takes place working together with the students of the partner institution. . Students are helped by teachers attending the mobility. The travel itself is preceded by a substantial pre-training in case of both groups. We have constructed a four-week long syllabus for the teachers and a four-month long syllabus for the students. In case of an active student and teacher participation and a successful tender, exercising mutual influence and synergy should be emphasised as connected to our mobility activities. Getting people acquainted with the expected influence and results of the mobility, a wide-scale popularisation and aiming for the most useful application of them has high priority for us. We expect the programme to reinforce our colleagues and students’ devotion to their fields of profession on the short run. It is also expected that members of both target groups develop themselves and their needs towards more modern methodologies, accept the role of European mutual work on a higher level, our teachers’ knowledge of methodology widens, and our students’ professional knowledge and command of a foreign language should also be developed. On the long run, we expect the newly gained pedagogical knowledge to be implemented in the practical education. The European level of professional knowledge, skills and competences are required to be acquired and used on a high level, while taking them into consideration when changing the vocational syllabus or the structure itself. The attitude of enterprises providing facilities for practical training shall also change on the long run. We would like to develop the attitude of our present-day students, making a better public opinion of the school while increasing the number of enrolling students at the same time, and we also aim to provide a better reputation of the activities available in our institution. . We do aim to take part in further projects of ERASMUS+ while making the mobility activities and their consequences key elements of the structural culture of our school.
