Start date: 01 Jun 2016, End date: 31 May 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The “STASZIC – STUDENTS AT WORK” is a 12 month project that begins on 6th January 2016. It will involve 30 Information Technology and mechatronics students from our school, i.e. the Staszic Secondary School in Czestochowa. The students, accompanied by two teachers, will take part in a one-month apprenticeship in several German companies. The scheduled time of the training is from 9th January 2016 to 3rd February 2016. We will cover the participants' transportation, accommodation, cultural programme and pocket money. Before they leave Poland, students and teachers will take part in several preparation activities, including language, cultural and pedagogical classes.Unemployment rates for our region are quite high, especially among the young people. Companies are not likely to employ people with little or no experience, which also increases the number of jobless young people on the market. Our project is an answer to this problem. Our main aim is to develop the professional competences of young people by giving them a chance to get some experience in German companies, and to improve their situation at the job market.The foreign apprenticeship will also develop the students' language skills, broaden their vocational vocabulary, increase their self-assessment and cross-cultural awareness. We believe that well-educated specialists who know about innovative technical solutions and who are aware of cultural differences will take care of our region's development and introduce good practice at work.The qualifications of the project participants will be confirmed by the ECVET and Europass documents as well as the Polish certificates, which will be important points on the young workers' CVs. The project is also a chance to introduce our school into the international network, to make new connections with foreign companies and maintain cooperation with external partners in vocation training. We believe this project will also increase the quality of the vocation education in our school and build competence of both our and the partners' staff. Taking part in foreign apprenticeships is our chance to boost the prestige of our school and make it more recognizable among the young generations. The new experience that we will get through this project we are going to use while writing our school syllabuses. We will also share that experience with other schools and similar vocational education institutions that influence the worker training process.
