Internationalisierung der Berufsausbildung durch 4-wöchige Auslandspraktika für Auszubildende der Hans-Böckler-Schule.
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The Hans-Boeckler-School is a vocational school which trains ca. 1,500 students for the professions of a legal clerk, a legal secretary, a secretary of a patent attorney, a tax clerk, an administrative clerk and a real estate clerk. Our school has gathered a lot of experiences with EU-funded projects by coordinating two Comenius school partnerships. Furthermore, field excursions to London with two-day work placements took place during the last four years. Because of students’ very positive feedback regarding the two-day work placements, the Hans-Boeckler-School aims to install a fixed program which enables students to take part on longer work placements during their apprenticeship. The current project will support four-week work placements for 24 students. The students themselves will be in charge of finding companies for the work placements in GB, Ireland or in Spain, as well as for organizing accommodation and transport. There will be a learning contract between each student, the receiving company and the Hans-Boeckler school. Skills and competencies which should be achieved during the work placement will be listed in the learning contract. At the end of each work placement students will receive the Europass mobility document. The placements will mostly take place during the second year of vocational training. The students will then have gained work experience and they will have attended the language courses at Hans-Boeckler-School. This will help them to adapt to the new business and cultural environment with the partner companies. By taking part on the four-week work placement students will adapt their key competencies like language skills, intercultural skills and organizational skills. Another aim of the project is that the Hans-Boeckler-School as well as the sending training companies will have the possibility to develop networks and structures for implementing even longer work placements for their future trainees. Work placements in other EU countries shall become a fixed part (for some but not all) trainees of the Hans-Boeckler-School and the connected training companies. This will internationalize the so called “dual system”.
