Furthermore they should be encouraged to adapt new situations, typical techniques and dishes and find their way in a foreign culture. In particular, the openness to new and unknown situations is to be encouraged. The internship is completed in the kitchen or restaurant in selected companies. Participants will receive training on their professional tailor activities. Moreover the students have the opportunity to expand their personal and intercultural horizon, in order to get acquainted with the new work and everyday culture of a foreign country.

Our partner school agreed to look after our students, to organize the accommodation and food, to find practical operations and to give support when problems arise. The 1st internship in Poland takes possibly part in June 2015 and the 2. Internship in Poland possibly in November 2016 . The previous project in November 2014 in collaboration with our partner school, Zespół Szkół Zawodowych was rated very positively by both sides and appreciated appreciative of the participants. The stay in Poland is supported both by the teaching stuff of BBS Wildeshausen and by the headmaster. As the pupils are in initial vocational training their financial resources are limited. However, not do deny the opportunity of an internship abroad, the pupils are dependent on funding from the Erasmus + program. Any remaining copayment for the pupils serve the appreciation for the project.
