Towards a European Business Culture - Auslandspraktika für kaufmännische Auszubildende
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The programme: 40 trainees get the opportunity to improve, extend and apply their English skills during a 3-week work placement in Great Britain. The apprentices belong to two German specific vocational training groups: Job training for industrial management assistants with special qualifications in international business and foreign languages and job training for office assistants especially trained in office communication and foreign languages. The trainees get the chance to apply their professional and social knowledge and gain new experience by actively working in British companies and institutions. They live in host families and thus gain insights in life realities and living situations. Objectives: First of all the participants will improve their command of English and realize the importance of learning foreign languages. They will add an international component to their vocational training and will be able to compare professional abilities and practices of different cultures. They will understand the necessity of professional flexibility by experiencing different attitudes and procedures. They will be able to observe economic and socio-political contexts and recognize the importance of intercultural dialogues within and beyond the European Union. Last but not least the participants will personally develop and receive a sustainable promotion which will enable them to respect persons from different cultural backgrounds. They will be able to communicate appropriately with foreign business partners. These qualities may be a valuable criterion when applying for a job domestically or internationally. About us: Hugo-Eckener-School consists of several vocationally oriented schools with profiles developing and offering mobility activities. We live up to our vision to combine economic competences with intercultural exchanges and information technology. We try to prepare our students for the requirements of a globalised working environment and society.
