Project is a response to high interest of young people in improving their skills abroad and on the need to have the students appropriate, necessary in today's world of competencies and skills that will help them start in life. Training project has been prepared on the basis of experience gained from the implementation of mobility projects and in cooperation with employers in the region who are waiting for an independent, creative and mobile labor market employee who will be ready to make hiring decisions and to make international cooperation. Internship program and its terms are arranged so as to constitute the basis for professional skills during external examination confirming vocational qualifications for the job. We are committed to both students and teachers know the rules that exist in the hotel and catering industry in other European countries.The main goal of the project is to improve the quality of the vocational training, broaden the knowledge, skills and professional competences, making easier to start professional career of future hotel and catering workers. The students will get Europass Mobility Certificate confirming skills and competences they acquired with exact description of educational path. Subsidiary goals are: putting knowledge into practice, to know modern standards and European traditions in the field of hotel and catering services, hotel and catering objects structures, regulations and work organisation, culture and traditions of another country, to adapt to life and work conditions in European countries, support of personal development, knowledge of food preparation techniques, hotel guest service and customer service and development of language skills and intercultural consciousness. Expected results are following: the students get work experience and know work prospects abroad, can use knowledge in practice and work in a team, use English fluently, they know and use professional terms, pass vocational exams well, they are active on the job market and they can find job and work according to the highest standards. They also have knowledge that enable them to start their own business, they are independent, creative and tolerant, and they can adapt to new conditions immediately. The cooperation between school and foreign partner helps get experience in internships preparation. The realisation of the project is the source of valuable experience for teachers engaged in training preparation and realisation. They can initiate innovative measures in our school to cultivate the educational process. The project is also the form of promoting our country, language and culture. 60 students will get international certificate that improves the transparency of qualifications they got. Dissemination of the project results will rivet international cooperation connected with vocational training abroad. Young people can transfer their skills into Polish market. Vocational training in Greek hotels and restaurants means they learn in the best place. Vocational training abroad makes schools` educational offer very attractive and influences the future students decision to start their education at technical colleges.The project will be recruited 60 trainees (interns to 2 groups of 30 people each) from two schools: the Agronomic School Complex in Minsk Mazowiecki and Agroculture Vocational School in Sokolka, who will leave for training in Greece. One 30 will create a group of people specializing in the food service industry, and the other students from the class of hotel. We depend on selecting and mixing students from both schools that allowed participants to compare their own competence with the competence and experience of their peers from another region of Polish, which will translate into equal opportunities for young people. It should be noted that a large part of the schools' students come from low-income families and foreign internship will help them to acquire new skills and prevent the abandonment of schooling, which is unfortunately often practiced by people with fewer opportunities to begin education in vocational schools.Beyond that the project will also benefit from training teachers-tutors who will be able to observe good practices and new trends while being with interns to Greece. This will help to increase the competence of teachers and teaching practical professions related to food processing and catering by confronting teachers theoretical knowledge with practice and currently prevailing trends.
