Integrated in the school program of the Oskar-von-Miller- the school action guideline "We encourage under the aspect of" lifelong learning "self-learning and action.” requires as result of economic globalization that the OvM offers students opportunities to develop their professional and personal skills through working and learning experiences abroad. At the same time it is necessary to qualify the teachers accordingly so as to introduce new impulses and ideas for the school and teaching development in the Oskar-von-Miller-school.
With the Erasmus+ project for mobility of students and educational staff in VET "Mobile in Europe 2 - fit for the future ( EuFit 2)" Oskar- von-Miller-School in Kassel wants to give the appropriate opportunities to enable the learners of the cooperative vocational education system (Dual VET system)and the VET teachers to acquire or deepen the above mentioned competencies. A total of 36 trainees from the VET "Electronic Automation" (12 learners), “mechatronics” (12 leaners) and "plant mechanic plumbing, heating and air conditioning” (12 learners) and 20 VET teachers are involved in the project.
Participants take part in work placements which are organized by the partner institutions Slovakia (VW Slovakia, Bratislava) and in Croatia (Strukovna škola Vice Vlatkovića, Zadar). The VET teachers take part in job shadowing in Finland (Lapland Vocational College, Rovaniemi LAO), Sweden (Taserudsgymnasiet , Arvika), Austria (Berufsschule Mattersburg) / IZ Cool and Croatia (Strukovna škola Vice Vlatkovića, Zadar).
The project will be managed centrally by the responsible of the Oskar- von-Miller- School; the partner institutions will organize accommodation and internship placements.
It is expected that the participants already created their technical skills due to the practical activities in the host country deepen (application of previously acquired knowledge and acquiring new knowledge), their foreign language skills deepening (use of existing language skills in real situations) and intercultural skills in significant build or strengthen (dealing with other cultures, " the bigger picture "). The teachers deepen their expertise in selected professional fields and build up management skills in the field of school administration.
By participating in the project, learners can improve their prospects in the labor market, with an increased willingness for occupational mobility is expected. For teachers to participate in a mobility project is to be considered as a continuing professional qualification measure.
By means of this project, the Oskar- von-Miller- Kassel hopes to increase the willingness of all stakeholder who are involved in the VET process (apprentices, companies and VET teachers) and the acceptance of training companies on the participation of trainees in European mobility products under the Erasmus + program and to contribute to the development of a European spirit in the societies of the member states.
