Wirtschaft und Handel im europäischen Sprachraum - Trinationale Wege der Berufsbildung II
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

25 students of the ´Full-Time Vocational School for Foreign Language Correspondence Clerks´ respectively trainee ´Foreign Language Office Management Assistants´ will be given the chance of taking part in a deepening training especially in the fields of economy and language promotion. Due to the close cooperation between the ´Full-Time Vocational School of Weiden´ and the ´Full-Time Vocational School for Hotel and Tourism Management of Wiesau´, Wiesau students can participate in this particular training, as the chosen subjects are also part of the curriculum of these students. The priority objective of this training is the expansion of professional expertise in the fields of economics, trade and tourism linked with the consolidation of language skills in English, Spanish or French. Topics that cover the economic, social and linguistic development in the English-, French- or Spanish-speaking world and the interaction with consulted experts are crucial for the training. Students who are training to be ´Foreign Language Correspondence Clerks´ or ´Foreign Language Office Management Assistants´ or work in the ´Hotel and Tourism Business´ and depend on appropriate background knowledge with the corresponding English, Spanish or French language skills in order to handle their vocational situations in a professional manner are in the focus of our efforts. We explicitly encourage their participation. The focus of the courses, which are prepared for classroom use, is on conveying economic and political expertise on Great Britain, Spain or France and their particular language areas. The programme will be completed with course units that focus on developing the skills that are needed for routine business in office, administration and trade. The required course modules are tailor-made to the needs of the particular direction of study and its curricular content. We also intend to offer industrial placements as a part of the training. The course agenda is to be supplemented by an interesting cultural programme. It is being considered that the students complete the course, the content of which has been acquired according to international frameworks, by taking part in an internationally accepted modularized English, French or Spanish final examination: Our international partners from Madrid and supposedly from Paris, too, are going to offer the certificate “International Commercial Clerk (Spanish/French)” after successful participation in the training and the final examination. After further negotiations and in cooperation with the Industrial Chambers of other European countries and occupational groups, this training and testing phase in the countries involved is supposed to be followed by efforts to mutually acknowledge comparable vocational training qualifications or modules in order to ensure equal international opportunities. Negotiations will take place in the course of visits to the institutions involved in London, Madrid and Paris and the corresponding Industrial Chambers between 2009 and 2014. The three-week vocational training is supposed to take place at the “College of Central London (CCL)” in the first year and according to the linguistic focus in Madrid at a “Colegio of Cámara de Comercio Alemana para Espana” or in Paris at an associated college of “Chambre Franco-Allemande de Commerce et d’Industrie”. The first mobility flow is scheduled for April 2016. The continuation with revised content according to the London experiences will follow in 2016/2017.
