The Commercial Vocational College Bayreuth goes international
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

According to parliamentary vote by 2020 up to 10% of all VET students should participate in mobility activities for learners. In order to increase the number of mobilities of learners according to this benchmark and to make new contacts, and organize and perform these mobilities successfully, the teachers involved need advanced intercultural and language skills in the first place. Many of these "voluntary" teachers are not certified to teach English or have only elementary knowledge of Spanish, but must communicate with partners via phone and e-mail and present in English (Spanish). Also intercultural competence was never part of their teacher training. They therefore participate in the following training courses of a language school in Malta (ETI Malta): - Professional Communication Skills (Giving effective presentations, socialising skills, being effective in meetings, intercultural skills, communication by Email, effective telephoning, ... ) - Intercultural and Communication Skills (theories and approaches to intercultural communication, intercultural competence models, sucessful communication across cultures, ... ) The teachers, who are responsible for the mobilities of our „Euro-Industriekaufleute“ do not speak Spanisch very well. To have a better communication with locals and companies, they participate in a training course of a language school in Spain (EuroMind).
