I. Tschechien: Glasobjekte/Glasschmelzverfahren in feuerfesten Materialien Partners: The vocational college of glass/ceramics/design will send 10 trainees/students (glass decorators) of the department of glass technology and glass decoration in their second year of training to Stredni Umeleckoprumyslova Skola Sklarska. Aims/Needs: As the partner school in Kamenicky Senov is famous for its high competence and excellent skills in performing glass melting processes and glass objects with fire resisting materials, our students can get an additional training as glass decorator on the highest level. Thus they acquire additional skills and competences they urgently need for their future jobs and professional life. The training in new glass technologies also renders a means to avoid later unemployment and to enhance the chance to find a job internationally. The quality of the training is improved by new teaching and learning methods. Dissemination of results: The produced glass objects will be presented to the public and the press by the students during the days of the open door at the vocational college Rheinbach and in English during the International Youth Glass Award in Rheinbach where young people from Europe meet and compete with their glass objects. II. Barcelona/Spanien: Berufspraktikum Gestaltungstechnische Assistenten Partners: The vocational college of glass, ceramics, design will send 10 trainees/students of graphic and industrial object design as well as media/communication from the department of design to Barcelona in the summer 2015, and 10 new trainees/students of the same department in the summer of 2016. The apprentices will do an obligatory practical training in creative agencies and media companies for eight weeks. Vice versa seven Spanish apprentices of the same professional field will do their practical trainings in companies in the region of Cologne/Bonn. The partner organization is the foundation Fundació BCN Formació Professional in Barcelona, who serves as service agency for the institutions of the education sector in all questions concerning vocational education and who has outstanding experience in several European mobility projects. Furthermore, two vocational colleges of design and media from Barcelona function as partners: Institut de Mitjans Audiovisuals (EMAV) and Escola d'Art I Disseny La Massana. They will send their apprentices to companies of the creative professional field to the region of Cologne/Bonn. Aims/Needs: Apprentices of the creative professional field at the vocational college in Rheinbach and at the two vocational colleges in Barcelona get with the eight weeks long practical training in a company in Spain the opportunity to improve their skills in the second language. Additionally, they meliorate their career opportunities on the employment market. This is true also for the Spanish trainees because of the high youth unemployment since the recession in 2007. Furthermore, the mobility project could be an answer to the skills shortage in the professional field of media in the region Cologne/Bonn. For all participants the mobility project offers an opportunity for intercultural learning and European mobility. With the project the cooperation between the chambers of commerce and the educational institutions as well as the companies in both regions of Köln/Bonn and Barcelona is sustainably fortified and continued. For the German as well as the Spanish trainees professional mobility is encouraged and the individual career opportunities will be improved because of the international job experience. Dissemination of results/Communication with the public: The trainees' learning projects and learning progress on a professional content as well as a language level will be communicated mutifold, e.g. via the regional press, the website and Facebook page of the vocational college Rheinbach, at the days of the open doors in the vocational college in Rheinbach 2015 and 2016 and at joint informative events with the chamber of commerce Bonn/Rhein-Sieg and regional companies for the target group of students and trainees in the region of Cologne/Bonn. Furthermore, the trainees will present and multiply their mobility project and its results for the public in a specific project such as a Blog, Website, or exhibition.
