Lernen und arbeiten in England III
Start date: 01 Aug 2016, End date: 31 Jul 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

For its students, the Gewerbliche Schule Ehingen wants to create the opportunity of an internationally accepted practical training abroad. Similar to a former Leonardo-project, the school intends to offer three-week work placements in England in industry and trades and crafts (mechatronics technicians, car mechanics, industrial mechanics, industrial electronics technicians, plastics processing technicians, professional drivers, floorers and parquet layers). Details for the next two years: 2 flows to England with 10 participants each. All participants are at the end of their second or at the beginning of their third year of vocational training.Parents or companies rarely encourage the students to go abroad. However, it is evident, that they make valuable experiences which benefit them in their career and intercultural awareness. They learn about industrial production, maintenance and repair and customer service or customer orders in comparison with their home country. Apart from that they enlarge their professional vocabulary and learn to integrate into the workflow of a foreign company in a short period of time. This placement is accepted as part of their German apprenticeship and provides them with advantages for future job applications (certificates).The work placement has been positively evaluated by the previous project participants. Their training companies increasingly appreciate and support this possibility. Our present strategy has proven successful which is why we intend to establish this programme over a longer term.
