The current mobility project involves teachers and students of Järvamaa Vocational Training Centre. The aims of the project are offering a large-scale education to compile with labour market in European Union, supporting people involved in vocational education offering them knowledge, vocational skills and qualification through implementation of ECVET. With regard to enable students’ high-quality practical training and offer enterprises in accordance with requirements we will send a professional teacher to hosting organisation in advance to evaluate the enterprise offering practical training and compile contract of learning agreement.
In addition we indicate importance to life-long learning key competences: developing foreign language skills of students and teachers, motivating them to study other foreign languages and to get acquainted to foreign cultures, teaching both students and teachers self-confidence and initiative.
The project activities are offering opportunities to broaden their mind through foreign traditions, cultures, technologies and work-specific besides acquiring and developing new vocational skills.
During the period 1st September 2015 to 1st September 2016 there will be 20 student mobility from JKHK to Poland, Hungary, Spain and Bulgaria. Involved are the students studying car technician, cleaning services, house holding, mason, IT systems’ specialists, road construction, customer service assistant for logistics’ companies, business administration, agricultural producer, equine management and veterinary assistance. 10 specialists from JKHK are involved in mobility.
There are involved the students of second and third year in the project activities, because they have acquired professional skills, working techniques and have even partial work experience.
All the participants are variably supported by both sending organisation and hosting organisations before and during the mobility. Sending organisation is responsible for preparation of participants in their vocational skills, language skills, cultural awareness, travel arrangement, required documentation etc.). Host organisation arranges according to prenuptial agreements mobility reception in the destination country (transport, accommodation, necessary catering, required work placements and companies etc.)
We are in opinion that student mobility supports development of professional skills, awareness of working stock and work pattern. The professional experience helps the students to adapt with their working environment and any working collective. Entering the labour market right after school graduation often leaves the students into weaker position because of lack of real work experience. We hope to offer them better opportunities in labour market providing work placement experience in a foreign country. Comparing to the students with local national work placement experience they should have advantages.
