Inklusion und Partizipation in der Arbeit mit Menschen mit Behinderungen und Vorschulkindern sowie betriebliche Partizipationsmöglichkeiten für Kaufleute in 5 europäischen Ländern
Start date: Jun 1, 2016, End date: May 31, 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

letzter Teil der deutschen Version: Die neuen Kooperationen mit der Vuxenutbildning in Borlänge und dem City of Glasgow College sind zudem wechselseitig angelegt. Für Sept. 2016 werden 4 Auszubildende aus Schweden in Castrop-Rauxel erwartet. Sie absolvieren ein vierwöchiges Praktikum am Evangelischen Krankenhaus und werden von Schülern des BKCR betreut.Das BKCR führt aktuell 3 Klassen mit jugendlichen Flüchtlingen. Durch das Erasmus+-Projekt wird die interkulturelle Kompetenz von Lernenden und Lehrenden am BKCR erweitert. The Vocational College Castrop-Rauxel („Berufskolleg Castrop-Rauxel“, abbreviated BKCR), Germany, is the institution applying for this KA1 Erasmus+ project. Both the organizing and managing of the project are to be BKCR’s responsibility. The BKCR is an upper secondary school with courses leading up to the university entrance qualification („Abitur“) with a vocational focus.The European project the BKCR is applying for is the continuation of several previous Leonardo da Vinci projects and especially the previous Erasmus+ project. The new project addresses and elaborates on the topic of the 2014 project (participation) with a new focus being on inclusion and "the right to take part in society." The project activities are to be expanded to all three main departments of the BKCR (i.e. education/social pedagogy, health, and business/administration). Goal: The BKCR is dedicated to achieving integration through education. This is embodied by this Erasmus+ project "The Right to Take Part in Society" on a school level. Every BKCR student should be enabled to actively take part in their educational processes, i.e. teachers and students together determine the content and design of their learning processes.In 2015, the BKCR was awarded the title „Europaschule“ by the state government of North Rhine-Westphalia, acknowledging our various international endeavours over the past decades. We believe that the main objective of our school – enabling personal and professional self-sufficiency intertwined with ethical responsibility – can only be achieved with an international perspective. For the first time, this mobility project would give students from all three of our departments the opportunity to do an internship abroad. This time abroad would enable us to prepare our students even better for their professional lives. The internships for the remedial/therapeutic educators in Borlänge, Sweden, would provide a hands-on comparison of the basic principles of remedial/therapeutic work in Sweden and Germany. This would enable our students to have a significantly broader perspective on the German system of inclusion. The elementary principles of facilitating education in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) are – together with curricula and regulations – the central point of reference for educators and child carers in training. The concept of early childhood education has the goal of "taking part in society" (participation). The state of NRW recognizes that the foundations for societal participation are laid in the area of elementary and primary education. Other EU countries pursue this goal using different approaches.The above-mentioned fundamentals are valid for the field of business/administration as well. In the competence-oriented guidelines for the subject "business administration", for example, this is put into action through the topic "human resources." In this project, office management students research possibilities for participation within a company. While in Glasgow, the students would analyze how the different national regulations they researched in class are put into practice. We expect the students in this project to significantly expand their competences regarding their discernment of job migration options and their ability to deal with diversity in the workplace. The number of students taking part in this project would be 34. They are studying to be state-certified child carers/educators (including A levels), remedial/therapeutic educators, or office management clerks. All of these students will do the internships in their last year of training. The project topic, participation and inclusion for people with and without special needs (both in and outside of professional life), is an element within the main subjects in all three courses. Going abroad is prepared in class and also through numerous other activities. A Swedish language class is obligatory for all students doing their internships in Sweden, regardless of their course. This provides an interdisciplinary platform for this European project. Other examples are intercultural activities students prepare for other students at the „Europe day“ celebrated at our school.Our co-operation agreements with Borlänge and Glasgow are bi-directional. Additionally, the BKCR has established 3 classes for refugees. This and the Erasmus+ project will expand the intercultural competence of students and teachers at the BKCR.
