Kinderschutz in der Kinder- und Jugendarbeit im europäischen Vergleich
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The idea for the project "child-welfare concepts in different institutions - an European comparison" was developed in a close cooperation between the BBZ Plön (voactional college, department of social paedagogics) and different partner intitutions working with children, children / young adults with special needs, and teenagers. This project will combine the requirement of internationalizing institutions and the demand of developing child-welfare concepts that are adapted to the special requirements of each school. This project offers the chance of learning from our European partners how to develope suitable concepts. The superior target is to compare child-welfare concepts in Europe. In 2015 all schools and institutionsin working with children and teenagers in Schleswig-Holstein have to develope individual concepts that must include aspects of child-welfare. Because of that our students need to have certain knowledge gained in our vocational college and in their placements. Therefore a a comparsion with other European countries makes sense. Furthermore the department of social paedagogics of the BBZ Plön plans to set up a Europe-Class. Visiting other countries in Europe and staying abroad can be integrated in the training at school. That way our school can fulfil the deamand of interationalizing. Until the end of 2016 the number of 21 students will visit either England, Austria or Estonia each year for 8 weeks to do their placements in different schools. The benefit on both sides - hosting institutions and the BBZ Plön is - very high. Our students will improve their professional English especially in the paedagogic sector. In addition their common language will improve. An intercultural training will prepare them for the stay and their intercultural competences will increase. The students will reflect on their own self-concept and on other cultural orientations. Because of that prejurdices will decline. They will compare different paedagogic concepts with a focus on concepts of child-care welfare and different eduacation systems. The vocational teachers (6 / per anno) will get to know the institutions and will have the chance to exchange experiences with the colleagues abroad about paedagogic concepts. The gained knowledge will be evaluated and will have a positive impact on the curriculum in the padagogic department. Other topics are the conditons, curricula and assessment of the placements and the cooperation in the future. The hosting institutions hope to get some daily support, innvoative ideas from the students and a cooperative professional exchange of ideas from the German vocational teachers. Especially the Goethe-Institut in Tallin is interested in teaching the German language. For the future our partners hope to have an active interaction and exchange of students and a discussion about contents of curricula and paedagogc concepts which will all parts of the cooperation will sutainably benefit from. The organizational part of the project will be done by an administration sectretary, because our teachers ill not have the time for that. It is important for us that quality audits and management assessments will be undertaken annualy. In order to that the experiences will lead into a continous improvement process that supports the paedagogic work environment.
