Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
Project "From training to work 2" aims at organizing a 4-week work experience for 24 students of Technical College with specialist units of hotel management and catering management which are part of Complex Upper Secondary School in Chojna (Poland). The work experience will be organized in the hotels in England and in restaurants in Malta. In the project apart from the sending institution the following hotels and restaurants will participate:
- Bakehouse B&B,
- Eastbury Hotel,
- Crown at Sherborne,
- The Grange at Oborne.
- JDJ Operations - Sensi,
- Illusions Ltd - 47 Summer Nights.
The work experience in the project will take place in April and May 2016 and also in April and May 2017, the activities of the project will start on 1st June 2015 and finish on 1st June 2017.
The participants of the project "From training to work 2" will be selected among students of the second and third year of Technical College from the units of hotel management and catering management. The majority of potential participants of the project is from the fewer opportunity group because of economic and geographical causes. 70% of potential project participants live in villages and the rest in small towns with a population of up to 7500 inhabitants. 80% of the students in classes in hotel and catering units are girls. Students who will take part in the project have limited chances of getting professional experience and widening spectrum of professional opportunities because of the unemployment rate in the area which is higher than the average in the country. Project participants will be able to use modern equipment in the hotels and restaurants and work directly with highly qualified, professional staff.
The analysis of the job offers from the area shows the shortage of workers with knowledge of foreign languages. The remark in CV on the work experience in England or Malta would be an advantage. Young people from the community of Chojna and the neighbouring communities have a lot of problems with the local transport system. To most of the villages there is only one bus in the morning and one in the afternoon. It influences badly on social and cultural development of young people and their chances to get good education. The participation in the project will improve multicultural and language competence of the students.
Project "From training to work 2" will help the sending institution establish contacts with the business sector, it is a very important issue in order to develop vocational mobilities. Because of the project a group of students will be encouraged to educational and professional mobility. It may help them organize their career and life. Participants of the project will be introduced to the advantages of educational mobilities, the European identity of the students will be strenghtened. The participants will improve their ability of using English for vocational purposes and professionalskills. They will become more self-confident and independent. The sending institution will be able to verify its professional training programme and compare it with the expectations of the hotels and restaurants active on the market.
The results of the project will be work experience for 24 students, Europass Mobility documents and the introduction of ECVET system. The results of the project for students will be higher competence in vocational subjects and English. It will improve results of external final exams at school. The prestige of the school in the local society will grow because of the involvement in Erasmus+ project. It may help the school recruitment process in hotel and catering units.
