European Mobility Network und TTASTE- Teachers and Trainers are sent to Europe
Start date: Jun 1, 2014,
End date: May 31, 2016
During the project timeframe the „Berufsbildungswerk Neckargemünd “(BBWN) sends a total of 28 trainees abroad for internships or practical stays who all have very specific special education needs and come from various apprenticeships and training programs within the dual training system. At the BBW, young people are trained outside of a company, i.e. the practical part takes place in well-equipped training companies. In these internship programs, trainees gain valuable experiences at cooperation companies.
One of the most important objectives is the strengthening and acquisition of self-reliance and more self-confidence. After finishing their training program or apprenticeships, our trainees have to face the first job market and compete with people without handicaps. Showing mobility and intercultural competence and having gained experience abroad increases our trainees’ chances dramatically and helps compensating for disadvantages resulting from their handicaps. At the moment, we are offering internships in Spain, England, Ireland, Poland, Estonia, France, Finland, and Italy. Our coordinator of the internships abroad plans, books and organizes the entire internship program. Typically, the trainees are accompanied during the first days of their internship by a teacher/trainer. Erasmus+ Mobility and the BBWN fund the program and bear all expenses, such as traveling expenses, board and lodging and insurance.
Apart from the trainees in their initial training, 6 trainers and teachers of the BBWN visit our partners as part of VETPRO projects.These are facilities that offer vocational training for young people with special education needs. Our goal is to learn from our partners, gain insights and deepen our collaboration, e.g. through peer review projects or ECEVET. We are striving for a regular exchange of colleagues within VETPRO projects in order to also promote the internationalization of our facility.
