Irish Adventure 5 / Irish Adventure 6
Start date: Jul 1, 2015, End date: Jun 30, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This is a project for mechanics in our vocational schools involving two different classes in the third year of their apprenticeship. The students go to Kilkenny, Ireland, to improve their knowlegde in English by work placements of high quality. For their whole stay the students live with host families, who integrate them in their every day life. The students get a work placement in a job which is related to the profession which they are training to be. For finding suitable companies and workshops in Ireland we have assigned an established Irish partner organisation. The work placements will take place in the following facilities: - car garages - agricutural machinery garages - truck repair garages - car-parts shops - machinery parts shops - panel and spray repair workshops - lawn mower and chain saw repair shops - motorbike repair garages/shops There the students also learn about the Irish culture and differences in job practices in the different countries. Such an experience considerably enhances the students' chances on the labor market in future and last but not least each participant will benefit from this project personally. Each participant will get his Europass-Mobility-Certificate. In addition to that the students get confident with project-management matters and they grow in confidence. Each participant will be an ambassador for the project and will provide other students with information about work placement projects.
