The project “Q-Placements” wants to support up to 50 apprentices with preparation and implementation of placements abroad between 1st January 2015 and 31st December 2016. Thereby the project will help trainees to gain more competences, e. g. expert knowledge, intercultural knowledge or language skills, and will thereby improve their occupational career. A further objective of the project is to strengthening the competitiveness of German companies, since they will also benefit from the internships of their apprentices.
Since 2009 the applicant is active in the working field of mobilities for apprentices, employees from SMEs as well as for young entreprenuers since 2013. That’s why the applicant has wide experience in that field of work. Among other things the applicant contributed to a handbook for a strategy for placements abroad for apprentices, teachers, training institutions, students and enterprises. Moreover the applicant was able to support more than 100 apprentices during their placements, which were always single placements. The applicant plans a closely collaboration with the Chamber of Handicrafts in Dresden, which has wide experience in placements for groups of people. Due to the experience in that field of mobility the applicant built up a big international network, not only for partner organisations, but for potential host entrepreneurs, too. The applicant experienced apprentices prefering to do placements in countries like the UK, France or Spain. That’s why different partner organisations from these countries were contacted. Some of them proved their contribution by signing a letter of intent. The applicant expects that the objectives followed by the project have positive impacts on the economy of Germany. Moreover the project supports the expert qualification of employees and the international orientation of enterprises, which also have positive impacts on the European economy.
