The main profile of József Petzelt Secondary and Vocational School is to provide qualifications in the catering industry field. Our school has been taking part in EU project for over ten years and over the fulfilment of the projects, the students involved succeeded in carrying out vocational trainings abroad, while the teachers did different courses. The student mobility performed meant a lot of professional and personal experiences since they could experience the European working culture their key competences developed.
Seeing the outcomes of our former projects, our main priority is to continue this innovative process and therefore in our current project we put the implementation of the foreign practices on ECVET basis so that our students can accomplish such learning activities during their vocational practice abroad which all have been specified and arranged with our host partners beforehand. After consulting with our host partner institution on the matter, the learning activities and achievements to be fulfilled by the end of the practice have been laid down in writing in the memorandum of understanding.
We would like to send students motivated in their job and with a good ability with a view to mentoring those gifted who represent their homeland becomingly onto foreign countries and make good use of their knowledge acquired in foreign countries at home in the middle manager's layer of hospitality, strengthening Hungarian economy.
In this present application we intend to collaborate with two foreign partner institutions and we plan internships in Italy and Portugal on the offchance of the acquisition and discovery of the Mediterranean gastronomy. In both two cases we plan the mobility for 4-8 weeks with groups of 4 cooks, waiter, catering students respectively. Much experience is at both two institutions' disposal in the realisation of mobility projects, the organizing of internships. The successful projects accomplished jointly with the institutions earlier guarantee that the fulfilment of our present application will be effective too.
We did prepare this project with great care and attention so that the implementation of it is to work like clockwork and to be instructive. Together with the host institutions’ project co-ordinators we jointly planned all the organized activities for the period of the students’ stay abroad and specified the training places of work as well as appointed the tutors giving helpdesk from the back.
With vocational instructors, caterer trainers, language teachers being involved; we assign our project management team that is in charge of preparing, arranging, closing and spreading the project. The management plan contains the main stages of the project and their details, deadlines, the people responsible.
Before going abroad, we put focus on preparation so that the trip to the given foreign country is to be successful from a vocational point of view as well. The preparing process is multi-phased, consisting of foreign language, vocational, cultural, psychological and organizational elements. we defined it in detail in how many lessons, what kind of occupations and how we prepare those travelling abroad.
Each group going abroad on a vocational training practice will have an accompanying teacher who during the internship will help with the solution of communicational and other problems that may crop up. The attendant teacher will keep in touch with the foreign tutors, the person responsible at the places of work and the project co-ordinators at home.
What we expect from the realisation of the project beyond the acquisition of the new technical knowledge is that the favoured students experience the responsibility of self-reliance which strengthens their motivation and the continuation of the independent learning and self-education. This personality developing process yields ethical and pedagogical profit for the school because we may meet students motivated in self-evaluation and the shaping of social contacts. In a longer run the success of the project to the society means that our favoured students become upwardly mobile specialists with innovative, European thinking, being able to shape their destiny consciously and improve independently.
