Szászországi gyakorlatok mezőgazdasági tanulóknak
Start date: Aug 1, 2016, End date: Jul 31, 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The destinations of the project are the areas of the Province of Saxony where agriculture is of great significance regarding employment. The basic objective of the mobility project is to enable students to get an insight into the successful local education outside plants as well as the successful local family owned agricultural businesses, and become acquainted with the agricultural activities characteristic of the region. In addition, our basic aim is to provide students with the possibility of developing their vocational skills and experience as well as gaining motivating experience which can determine their success later in life. They can become more open-minded, more self-confident and more dedicated to their work. We plan the participation of 7 students, who study agriculture or animal health either at secondary level or post-secondary technical level. The students would take part in a 3 and a half-month professional training starting in August, 2016 lasting until November, 2017. The students would do their training on family farms which primarily deal with breeding cattle and growing the relating fodder. During the training the students would participate in the daily work of the farms from Monday to Friday. The programme also enables the students to spend their free time usefully including visits to plants and museums of Plauen (Plauen Lace Museum, Vogtland Museum, Gallery). During the time of the training it is important that the students improve their German language skills as well as their vocabulary. We reckon that the students will also be able to broaden their ecological horizons significantly. By taking part in these programmes, the students can get an insight into the national values and customs of another country. The expected result of the project is that the students should gain professional experience and become acquainted with new technologies in animal breeding and growing plants. We also expect that the students’ professional and individual independence will increase and their personal, social and methodological competence will improve while working. Our aim is that after returning home, the students would be able to recognise differences and relationships between the Hungarian and German methods of animal breeding. They would also be able to share their knowledge with their fellow students in order to expand their professional knowledge too. It is important that the participating students improve their German vocabulary and their professional language speaking skills.Besides gaining professional experience, it is also of great importance that our students become acquainted with the German culture, and the daily lives and customs of the local people.Based on our previous experience, it is expected that the training will be to our students’ advantage when entering the labour market. On the local level, we are convinced that the project will motivate students to choose our school by means of providing the possibility of travelling and working abroad. The possibility of participating in the programme will probably inspire students to perfom better in both vocational subjects and discipline generali, especially in foreign language learning. By incorporating the experience of training abroad into the educational programme and practice of our school, we expect that our vocational training will become richer and more effective.On a regional level, by means of promoting a higher educational standard as well as broadening the students’ professional horizons, the project might contribute to a rise in agricultural production standards. On an international level, we expect that the project will help deepen professional friendship and cooperation between the two countries. The vocational teachers of our institution would participate in a 7-day project, which provide the possibility of visiting classes and taking part in vocational training at the teaching nad experimental farm in Köllitsch. Our colleagues can get an insight into cattle-keeping, pig-keeping, feeding and the method of teaching technical knowledge. They can compare notes with the German colleagues. In addition, they can become acquainted with the latest technology regarding livetock keeping and plant cultivation.Our colleagues could share their professional experience with other colleagues, and incorporate the realizable elements into our curriculum. The aim of the project is that our colleagues would improve their technical vocabulary and become acquainted with the German culture. With the help of all of the above, our vocational training could be renewed, more modern, more colourful and more European. Last but not least, our colleagues can get a picture of the expectations of local farmers, so that they can prepare the student participants of the next project.
