Learning through mobilities - part 2
Start date: 01 Jun 2016,
End date: 31 May 2018
The requirements to work in a multicultural society increases continuously and the labor market is constantly looking for workers who have good self-awareness, good self-confidence and who are tolerant , flexible , stress resistant and able to handle the challenges of working life today. The characteristics mentioned above are developed during an international mobility in a way that would not happen if they did their placements in Finland.All hosting organizations, representing 10 different countries, are familiar with Axxell since before. This makes the cooperation and communication easier. LearnMob2 offers mobilities for youth and adult learners awithin basic, further vocational and specialist vocational qualification (64 mobilities) in the academic years 2016-2017 & 2017-2018 .Axxell strives for equality in international mobilities by also including students with fewer opportunities as well as students within further vocational and specialist vocational qualification in the mobilities. In order to increase the equality of learner mobilities, each unit/sector will be encouraged to send participants on mobilities. When selecting the participants focus is on who has the most to gain by taking part in a LearnMob2 mobility. Of the 64 mobilities reserved for students, 29 will be reserved for students who have fewer opportunities to participate in international mobilities.Already at the application stage, the objectives, expected results, dissemination etc. have been discussed by Axxell and the hosting partners. A Memorandum of Understanding has been signed by Axxell and the hosting partners. The project has a cost account/project number for costs arriving during and by the project. The international coordinator is responsible for project management and the international contact persons are responsible for the practical arrangements and the preparations done before, during and after a mobility.Results/Impact:Axxell:- Responds to the demands of the labor market by providing skilled labor- Supports knowledge and personal development within Axxell- Awakes interest and challenges the development of existing methods, models and processesStudents:- Increased studymotivation- Improved self-awareness /confidence- Confirms what they want to focus on in life- Increased ability to work in a foreign work environment and adapt to new circumstancest- Increased capacity and flexibility- Better at taking own initiativesHost organization :- Can compare their education with Axxells- Receives feedback on their VET- Increases internationalization at homeLocal, regional and national level :- The labor market gets workers who are flexible, tolerant, skilled and open to new challengesAt European level:- Helps to increase the mobility within the labor market (in a small scale)- The knowledge of the different VET systems in Europe grows as the participants compare VET systemsInformation about the project will be disseminated throughout the entire lifespan and after the end of the project. A dissemination plan and a checklist are provided to all who participate in mobilities. The dissemination plan will focus on how to spread information about the project internally and externally on a local, national and European level. Blogs, a brochure/leaflet about the project and other materials created for dissemination purposes will be spread through Axxells’ website, intranet and through participation in various events.Evaluation of the project and the dissemination of project results will be analyzed regularly in the international group meetings (8 meetings/year) and the PLG group meetings (2meetings/year). Materials to be used when evaluating are e.g. participants Mobility Tool reports, webropool surveys done by learners/staff participating in LearnMob, the hosting organizations and evaluation discussions.
