Mobilitätsprojekt MVV- Plymouth City College Erasmus Plus 2015/2016
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Project background: The background to the project is MVV’s internationalisation via its MVV Environment subsidiary in Plymouth in south-west England. The resultant synergies in terms of involvement in the local infrastructure, particularly with City College Plymouth, should provide the company with good access to the British labour market. For trainees, the secondment to Plymouth will offer intercultural benefits and ideally supplement their language training. Given its participation in the recent Leonardo Da Vinci project, MVV Energie hopes to strengthen the links already in place with City College since 2012. In return, MVV Energie is offering City College students the opportunity to gain intercultural experience at and with MVV Energie in Mannheim. Project objectives: MVV Energie’s project objective is to offer its future specialist and management staff an early opportunity to gain intercultural experience. The internationalisation of the energy market and expansion in renewable energies make this far-sighted perspective necessary in the interests of the company’s strategic objectives and to enhance the high training standard of its specialist staff. Number and profile of participants: The application relates to a total of 12 trainees. These comprise the following training vocations: Systems mechanic Plant technology electrician Industrial mechanic Industrial clerk Office management assistant Upon starting the secondment, the trainees are in their 2nd or 3rd year of training.
