Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project involves students of Barbaros Hayrettin Paşa, Hacı Rahime Ulusoy and Ziya Kalkavan Vocational and Technical schools as well as similar schools in Germany, Spain and Litvania. According to the statistics on the sea accidents in the World that seafarers confronting, the lack of proper training on the issue of safety at the sea is observed as the main factor. Except counting in the long-distance ships with Turkish flag, according to the reports on the sea accidents since last year, prepared by thr accident research and evaluation institution, 135 accidents, 92 death toll, 17 lost, 321 rescues are confirmed just in Turkish rescue field. The ratio of the statistics are comperatively high to the statictis in European countires. As it is stated in the same statictical report, the kinds of the accidents are defined as; %22 Overturning, %22 Grounding, %19 Conflict, %15 Scour, 15% Fire, %10 Medical Unloading, %9 Men dropping to sea, %7 collison, %3 machine problems, and %12 other. Ship accidents also cause sea pollution, and the oil pollution also harms the human health, sea livings and sea shores. STCW (Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping) defines the standarts for the minimum obligatory education required for the seafarers on the international trade ships. The regulations are developed by IMO (International Maritime Organisation) which operates under UN. According to STCW, today’s conditions, mariners should have completed the ‘Security at Sea’ training, if they plan to operate in the ship. These trainings involves: life-saving techniques, fire fighting, first aid, staff security and social responsibility, and the ability to use life-saving tool. There is an obvious increase in opening maritime schools in last years, if we think the geographical position of our country. STCW standarts are intended to be taught in these maritime school, though the application and the training level is not comparable to the similiar schools in Europe. Even the maritime schools in Istanbul do not have training pool as it is stated in the STCW stadanrts. Besides these, it is a fact that we do not have the suffiencent tools for the trainings at the training shore. Our 4 partners in Euope have the proper equipments for to implement the STCW Manilla changes. Under the scope of Erasmus + Student and Staff Mobility of Vocational Eduction, It is planned for the students of our 3 maritime school, to execute their internship on ‘Sea Security’ in our partner maritime school in Europe. Thus, our students will learn to how to implement STWC standarts at the end of their internship including, to take measures in life-saving techniques in the sea and life-raft, to learn to use the right equipments and techniques for the fire fighting, to give life support for the victim in the fire, to learn how to manage the collective life- savings, taking protective positions, learn how to prevent the sea pollutioning. So on the individual and also instutitional basis, the integration on the training field will be provided. In the scope of the project, it is planned to perform the internship of the students in 3 mobility flow, as 12 students in Maritime school in Beykoz to Spain, 12 students in maritime school in Beşiktaş to Litvania., 12 students in maritime school in Üsküdar to German in İstanbul. At the end of the project mobility, it is aimed to gain experiences on a professional and cultural level as well as to adopt in the standarts in education and training as it is in the globalizing World. The project was carried out 2 weeks internships in a 3 flow mobility including the project owners and local partners, with 36 students and 6 staff members.
