In our vocational school we train in a three year full-time school course in secondary education students in vocational training and for the entrance to universities of applied science. Seven students of this course at the end of the second year will be send for their practical training in companies in the EU. This eigth week practical training is necessary to get the permisson for the certificate exams. in the curriculum this practical training is important for getting the vocation.
In addition, in our vocational school we train IT-specialists in the dual system. They close their 3-year training with an examination of the Chambers of Commerce and Industry. Ten stundents per year of this course in the 2nd half of the 2nd year of the training will be given the opportunity to work for a month in their work experiences in other European countries.
The students should get the chance getting their first work experiences abroad to get in contact with the european work market. Such experiences are veryy usefull and important for their career. They will learn how IT works abroad, will prove their competences in foreign languages and learn IT subjects at their work. Also they will get a lot of intercultural competences live and work in a strange country for two weeks for their own.
Our partners are proved in these activities in the last years. We know the responsible persons at our partners personally so we can agree easyly in the learning contract for the students.
The activities in the full-time school course have started in autumn 2013 with the information of the new students. They made their application in a precontract. The election who take part at the project we decide one year later. Now the preparations of the delegation start. Then they apply at the partners for their practical training. As soon they get the commitment we make the contract and give them the first part of the grant. Then they organize their travel and the accomodation supported by our partners. Also they arrange the terms of the learning contract. During the implementation the partners and the promotor evaluate continously the practical training of the students.
