I ACTIVITY. VET LEARNERS TRAINEESHIPS IN COMPANIES ABROAD The Project will provide practice placements for the 2nd year Navigation and Ship Engineering specialty students of Latvian Maritime Academy’s Maritime Vocational School. Place of practice: yacht ports and shipyards in Valencia, Spain (1st flow) and Malta (2nd flow) . Both Spain and Malta is a good place to implement this project as there are plenty of yacht ports and shipyards with a shortage of manpower especially in the summer period. Meanwhile in Latvia it is very difficult to find an appropriate placement for this kind of practice. Reasons: selective higher class private business sector, which won't employ underage unexperienced students; weather conditions inappropriate for sailing. Practice placements give our students an excellent opportunity to obtain an international experience – not only professionally, but also to widen their horizons culturally and improve their communication skills with entrepreneurs and co-workers. All the skills are reflected in the EUROPASS certificate, which is a good help in their future career. Hands-on participation in the small and medium size enterprises work will enhance our students' future perspectives as an entrepreneurs in Latvia.
