JobRoute - journey to job
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
At School Centre Nova Gorica (SC NG) we have been successfully organizing projects of students mobility for sixteen years. In a programme Erasmus+ we apply for one-year project called "JobRoute – journey to job". The name already told that we would like to steer students to take a career pathway and also for staff mobility to upgrade their expert knowledge.
Partnership in the project consists of 11 partners organizations. Special feature of the project is the distribution of the activities of A1, A2 and A3. In the first part of the activity (A1), we will work with four secondary schools and two intermediary agencies. School organizations have numeric educational programs in secondary vocational and technical education professional. Agencies have years of experiences with the organization of mobility and network businesses, where students will be on the job learning placement.
In the second part of the activity (A2) we have 5 different streams of staff mobility who will go abroad for job shadowing. Three mobility will be carried out by individuals, one mobility will be attended by two teachers and one last counts seven teachers, who are experts in health care. We will cooperate with five different organizations and four of them are new partners.
We have produced a detailed schedule for the mobility of students and staff in the school year 2015/2016, so far as we had quite a few problems with tracking the content of applications in the past. We plan to carry out 64 mobilities of students and staff professionals.
The basic purpose of the project is to enable 43 students and 9 employees of international experience in a foreign schools and companies. We want to expand the internationalization process. Main aim of students going abroad is to do on-the-job learning placement, which last 2-4 weeks, depending on the educational program. The first week of each group will be accompanied by a teacher, except with health and care will be two teachers. For activities A1 we want students enable on-the-job learning placement fields of secondary vocational and technical programs, such as computer science, electrical engineering, woodworking, car mechatronics, mechanical engineering, mechatronics, logistics, health care, gastronomy, agriculture, nature protection, trade and economy, and their mobility recognized as part of the learning process.
In the part A3 we will organize 9 mobilities for acoompanying persons who will join to 8 groups of students mobility going on-the job learning. They will spend only first week abroad, so we have separately marked activity A3 for teachers as acoompanying person, anyway it will be organized together with activity A1.
Additional project objectives for students are: to come familiar with education system of host country, to upgrade theoretical knowledge, to know better the procedure of work and changes set by the foreign labor market, develop language (communication) and intercultural competences (knowing customs and traditions of new countries) and actively spend free time (get to know with culture and history of host country).
We want to speed the cooperation between VET institutions in Slovenia and other countries. Intercompany Training Centre as one of the units of School Centre Nova Gorica in which LLP and Erasmus+ projects are coordinated is working with several organizations in Slovenia such as Institute of the Republic of Slovenia for Vocational Education and Training, The National Education Institute of The Republic of Slovenia, Ministry of Education and Sport and other foreign organizations.
Over the years we have learned the best way is to work with educational organizations which help us to find on-the-job-learning work place in their workshops, companies, at craftsmen and in other companies. We are increasingly work on principle of reciprocity, which means we host foreign students from partner’s organizations every year. Effect of good partnerships is that our students can gain qualitative knowledge. Anyway we will try to collaborate with two intermediate agencies too. Within implementation of the project we want to improve skills of professional flexibility for students and staff, on the other hand to increase internationalization process at the School center Nova Gorica.
