HuebEurope II
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The HuebEurope II Project is a project of the “Hüberts´sche Schule”, a privately owned Higher Vocational College of Business and Administration. The aim is to promote the job mobility of the vocational full-time students. The students come from the surrounding rural districts of the Emsland, Steinfurt and Osnabrück and have deep roots in their home. With this project they are given the chance to gain first work experience at a foreign work place and to improve foreign language as well as intercultural skills in order to prepare them for the challenges of a changing regional, national and European job market. This project is built on the experiences of the former HuebEurope I Project, which has been running successfully within the EU programme Leonardo Mobility for two years. The project is supported by the EU office of the regional government of Münster. The project is applied for a total number of 44 participants. It will be carried out in two flows, each with 20-24 participants, who will be sent off for two weeks after the Easter holidays of the years 2016 and 2017. The target group of this project are the vocational full-time students specialising in Business, Administration and Foreign Languages. The project consists of two actions: The main action is the offer of a two-week work experience in different British companies and institutions (e.g. primary schools, grammar school, residential home for the elderly) in the county of Kent. Participants are accommodated in British host families. The Hüberts´sche Schule organises travel and accommodation of the participants. Two teachers of the college will accompany and support the participants on site during their stay. The second, new action is to offer the possibility of a funded foreign work experience to those students who have succeeded in finding a work placement due to their own personal commitment. This action is mainly focussed on foreign branch offices and distributors of regional companies. In this case travel and accommodation will be organised by the participants themselves, who will be supported by the teaching staff of the college. Attendance during this work experience will be ensured by means of email and phone. The Hüberts´sche Schule is responsible for the selection of suitable candidates. The common language and intercultural preparation of the participants will take place in the HuebEurope workshop of the vocational college. Together with the participants the vocational college and the partner organisations decide on the goals for the stay abroad and keep record in the participant agreements. After the work placement they will evaluate the success of each stay abroad with the individual participants. With this project the participants should be supported both in their personal and professional development in order to become responsible citizens and qualified employees in the German and European job market. Moreover, this common project is intended to promote European concepts and ideas on a local, regional, national and international level.
