GoEurope - wir bringen Berliner in Bewegung: Mobilität für Auszubildende, Berufsschüler, Absolventen der beruflichen Bildung, Referendare und Berufsbildungsverantwortliche
Start date: Jun 1, 2016, End date: May 31, 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The city state of Berlin has a youth unemployment rate of roughly 9.5 % as of December 2015, the highest figure among all 16 German states. This problematic situation leads directly to the most important goal of the project – improving the employability of apprentices, students in full-time vocational training as well as those who have just completed their vocational training course. We want to reach this goal by offering the target group customized high-quality learning settings abroad. To achieve this we will continue cooperating with the vocational schools, the apprentices’ companies, the Chamber of Commerce as well as with the trade unions and professionals’ organisations. To flank the achievement of these goals we aim to strengthen the competences of the professionals working in schools (particularly at the management level), so they can better aid the young learners to enter the European employment more successfully.An overriding objective of the project is to increase the integration of participants with a migrational background, who are young parents or who are disadvantaged learners into the work force.The following are the main activities we will offer the youths mentioned above:- internships abroad for the youths in their fields- project work abroad for the youths on topics related to participants' vocational fields A majority of the participating youths will be from the following fields: clerical occupations, media, hotel, gastronomy, carpenters/joiners.These main activities will supported by the following flanking activities offered to professionals and student teachers in vocational training centers in Berlin: - Advanced and further training abroad with the topic “professionalizing the teacher’s acting in the classroom on the European level aiming to better prepare students for the European job market”.- Professional development training for school management staff regarding “students with special needs”.- Training for student teachers with the focus on „Learning from the Best in Europe – enhancing methodical expertise!”- Training for future school management staff: “How to successfully develop a vocational training school/institution”Our GoEurope mobility network encompasses 30 different partner organizations in 10 EU countries plus Turkey. All of our partners are specialized in the professional execution of Erasmus+ (formerly Leonardo-da-Vinci)-funded learning stays for youths and professionals in the field of vocational training. The majority of our partners can tap into a network of a several hundred or even a several thousand potential internship companies. They are well connected with the vocational training centers and political institutions in their respective regions. As soon as the decisive parameters of a mobility flow have been defined with our local training institutions the project is actively promoted to the target group and participants are selected from the applicants. As soon as the participants for a particular flow have been secured the partner organization in the host country is commissioned with carrying out the preparations for the flow. The quality of each flow is ensured by a number of measures, e. g. mid-term reports, evaluation meetings, accompanying visits and/or a preparatory visit. The most desired outcome of the stay abroad is always to improve the participants' employability (roughly 10 % of our participants even receive a job offer abroad), improved social integration of participants who are young parents, have a migrational background or learning disabilities, improved proficiency in foreign languages as well as personality development. Furthermore, we intend to create excitement for the European Union in general amongst satisfied participants! All of them can be instrumental in internationalizing their educational institutions. Particularly by helping to create a functional network including the body responsible for the project and local partner organizations.Our network has been growing for ten years now and the long-term effects of our steady growth in terms of quality and numbers of participants are becoming ever more evident. By now 20 Berlin vocational training centers have already appointed an EU-Affairs Representative to manage their collaboration with us. Two vocational training centers now even offer vocational training courses with integrated mobility stays abroad. For our EUROPASS mobility ceremonies we are often honored to have Undersecretaries of State personally handing over the certificates to our proud young participants.A development towards an innovation and internationalization cluster including our local, national and international partners is becoming ever more visible, gaining more and more capacity to establish internationalization.Last but not least around 500 youths come back home every year - excited about their mobility experience abroad. Their personality has developed, they have experience they will be able to dr
