“5 Star Traineeship: Traineeship in Europe as a mean to improve employment opportunities for VET learners” is the new mobility project of the 2nd Laboratory Center of Piraeus (2nd EK Peiraia). The project’s main goal is to shift Greek students’ attitude towards traineeship and to create an international network, in order to enhance traineeship in Europe for Vocational Education learners from Greece. The project is divided into five mobilities (5 stars), according to different vocational sectors (Ship Engineer, Tailoring & Fashion Design, Health & Care, Food Technologist and IT) involved in the proposed project. For the implementation, five educational organisations (5 stars) –plus one intermediary– from three different European countries (Italy, Spain and Germany) will host fifty four students in total, for two weeks traineeship. Ship Engineer trainees will have the opportunity to work and learn on board of the Istituto Nautico “L. Acciaiuoli” private ship; Tailoring & Fashion Design students, guided by MAD for Europe experienced in mobility projects staff, will visit apparel industries in Madrid, such as Fashion House Industries, Production Companies, Promotional clothing-shops, and learn about the new technologies in use; Health & Care students will receive the most comprehensive, state-of-the-art First Aid training by WBS TRAINING AG, in Dresden, one of the biggest independent educational providers in Germany; Food Technologists, assisted by ARocca’s personnel, will have the chance to become acquainted with the olive oil collection and processing by attending the olive harvesting during November in Sicily and the transformation of olives into high quality oil; IT Technicians will get work experience and in-company classes, under the supervision of IFOM VET Center, in the technologically advanced city of Bologna. All these (and many more) activities is expected to have an enormous impact on the students of the 2nd EK Peiraia and especially on their self-esteem, their understanding of the European identity and their interest in Traineeship across Europe and –hopefully– Greece. All these learning experiences have been designed by 2 EK Peiraia experts, as a blended traineeship scheme, for best learning outcomes, comprising hands-on intensive workshops, short period work placement, job shadowing, seminars on site, and English terminology training. A series of dissemination events will take place after the project’s completion, to showcase acquired knowledge and competences and to highlight best practices in Training. The dual vocational educational system (TVET) for the Secondary Education being legislated in Greece just two years ago, requires great effort in changing the mindset of Youth and the Labor Market towards Traineeship. 2 SEK Peiraia envisages the “5 Stars Traineeship” as a stepping stone to Traineeship Culture in Greece.
