The main objective of this project is to enable students of our school to get working experience abroad by experiencing practical tasks at work, adapting to new social and working surroundings, motivating them to work hard, be flexible and active in communication in a foreign language. Specific objectives of this projects are to improve communication, social and digital competences of students, to extend working abilities of the students abroad, to enrich formal and informal education by practicing abroad, to learn history, geography, culture, art and life style of British people, to experience multiculturalism and mutual tolerance among EU citizens.
15 students of the Business Academy in Žilina at the age of 17 and 18 will participate in this mobility project. The project itself will be running for 12 months (from June 2015 to June 2016). It consists of the preparation of the project activities, realization of the project tasks by practicing working skills abroad and the final phase is connected mainly with propagation and dissemination of the project´s outcomes. The mobility itself will take place in May 2016. Students will be chosen according to their language and practical skills.
