Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project is a continuation and is complementary to the assumptions of the mobility project being currently done in the Erasmus+ programme, and just completed mobility project in Leonardo da Vinci programme. The project participants will be 72 students from technical and vocational school of ZS No. 2 in Sanok, studying to become telecommunications technican, mechanic technician, automotive technician,, environmental protection technician and a car mechanic and 3 teachers of vocational education. Students will take an apprenticeship in workplaces and companies corresponding to their field of study in Malta and vocational training centers in Germany and the UK. There will be four groups of students going abroad. In February 2016 20 pupils of technical and vocational classes will go on a 2-week course of AutoCAD, in September 2016 16 students- mechanic technicians and automotive technicians will go on a 4-wee- training to a training center in the UK and 16 pupils- telecommunications technicians and environmental protection technicians will leave for vocational training in companies in Malta. In January 2017, another group of 20 students of technical and vocational classes will go on a 2-week course of AutoCAD. Apprenticeship programs have been developed in close connection with the guidelines of apprenticeship programs based on the curriculum of particular professions, but are to be implemented on the basis of modern facilities and equipment, and focus on learning new technologies and to develop skills particularly desired by the local labor market. Within the project 3 ZS2 vocational teachers will participate in the training of staff of job-shadowing type in March 2016 in a partner school in Germany. Before leaving for an internship, students and teachers will receive support in the form of linguistic, cultural and pedagogical preparation . The project is a response to a problem which occurred in our school: poor recruitment to school, poor school performance, and consequently poor performance in professional examinations and Matura examinations. As a result, fewer students continue their education after secondary school, and not even all of them take the exams. After examining the problem we tried to solve it on many levels, but in-depth analysis in the form of interviews and surveys showed that the primary cause of failure is lack of motivation for learning, lack of faith in students' own abilities and lack of prospects for the future. An additional problem is a nationwide trend, which is the popularity of general education over vocational training among junior high school students. To change this situation, we have developed a project whose main goal is to increase students' motivation to develop knowledge and improve skills, gain new skills, improve language skills: English and German, increase the mobility of participants, increase their chances on European and national labor market, increase self-esteem, increse intercultural competences, improve the quality and attractiveness of vocational education in the school and in the region, prevent early school leaving and reduce failure in education. Thanks to the cooperation with a partner school in Germany and the training of job-shadowing, our employees will expand their professional competence and language. They will develop their skills in the diagnosis of pupils' needs and learn more attractive teaching meathods. The cooperation will contribute to the exchange of best practices, gaining experience through practical activities and ability to cooperate at the international level. On the basis of the experience of the German school we will develop a system that will contribute to diagnosing and assisting students with educational problems more professionally. The project is also a preparation for the planned strategic partnership in the field of education, training and youth, which we intend to participate in the partner institution. The most important results of the project will include obtaining Europass Mobility certificate , obtaining ECVET points, acquiring new skills, improving language skills and filling in the European Language Passport, increasing the mobility of participants, increasing students' chances on European and national labor market, increasing self-esteem and motivation to learn, which will help to reduce the number of early school leavers, learn intercultural competences among students and teachers, improve the quality and attractiveness of vocational education in the school and in the region, as well as the preparation to the strategic partnership in the future.
