So the quality of the content of the project and the validation of its results is secured.The work placements are arranged individually and take place in the respective professional fields of the trainees. This is discussed and agreed upon beforehand with the hosting organizations. The work placement coordinators abroad are asked to check on the professional context and to thereby secure the development of the respective vocational skills of the participant.Information sessions are conducted in vocational schools in order to ensure the administrative process of the practical training abroad and to remain transparent to the participants. In addition, a cross-cultural and administrative project preparation is planned via Skype in which the compulsory project data is reviewed, the main topics are gathered, the administrative process of the project is clarified and the forms of project quality control or rather the internship recognition are discussed. The Skype circuit between former participants and partner institutions abroad should lead to experience exchange and intercultural preparation. The language preparation and development of participants occurs through the language modules on internet by LOS before the project begins. In addition, participants are advised about offers that will help them to continue locally their language training and how and when they take place. On request, our partners organize language courses abroad.Planned project results: - Qualification and further training of participants (learning by doing, innovative methods, basic idea of "lifelong learning") - Overcome language barriers by the use of a foreign language (written, oral) - Promoting tolerance towards other cultures / world of work = integration in Europe - Internationalization of educational institutions, strengths of synergies in the European Economic Area
