LEB-Mobil in Europa
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
The project "LEB Mobil in Europe" has been designed to continue and expand our successful projects of 2012, to meet the objective of internationalisation within the European network as stated in our school program. New courses from different academic fields will be given the chance to do internships abroad in participating European countries to develop their intercultural skills, language skills and to give up any prejudices that may exist. In addition, the project will be helpful for the students in the process of establishing a career or in increasing their chances for professional applications.
The choice of a new partner in Bulgaria shows that the LEB does not shy away from countries whose languages are not taught at our school. The continuation of the successful cooperation with our Turkish partners gives us the courage to do that. 44 participants in total, with the help of the partners abroad, will do internships in a variety of businesses, which have been carefully selected according to their training. The largest group of participants (14), medical technical assistants, will work for three weeks in a hospital in Antalya, which will, professionally and linguistically, present great challenges. Twelve participants, foreign language office assistants, who need to do an eight-week-internship as stated in their exam regulations, will do internships in Spain, England or France, in particular to expand their professional knowledge and to get a first-hand experience in their profession. The same applies to the ten participants from the field of office management and administration. Eight participants from the full-time higher vocational school will pioneer in Bulgaria in internships at international companies using their English language skills.
All participants will be supervised and monitored closely by the experienced staff of the partner organisations and the project co-ordinators during their work placements.
The aim of all activities is the consolidation and expansion of language skills, achieving a greater intercultural competence, as well as insights into the world of work and the social structure of the host countries.
Through the dissemination of the results at the local level, we expect that the employing companies and public institutions will clearly see the importance of these objectives and welcome the gained experience of their returning trainees.
At the international level, we hope that other partner organizations in more participating countries will contact us, so that we can extend these kind of programmes in the future.
The best form of advertising will be the reports of the returning participants on the webpage of our school, in flyers, and by presentations before other students on our „Information Day“ to encourage more students to participate in future mobility projects or to apply for pool projects.
