Start date: Jun 1, 2016, End date: May 31, 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

“Young Styrians GO Europe!” is the European internship project for all young Styrians in Vocational Education and Training (VET). We offer them the opportunity to get financial support from the European Union to make their internship in one of the Erasmus+ eligible countries.Practical experiences, such as internships, can significantly increase the students’ motivation to learn by showing them how relevant the knowledge and competences acquired abroad are for their professional future. The project "Styrian Schools GO Europe!" combines the international / European aspect with the motivation-enhancing aspect of practical experiences."Young Styrians GO Europe!" supports students and teachers of interested Styrian Upper-level secondary technical and vocational schools as well as Styrian enterprises, their trainers and their apprentices to find work placements abroad."Young Styrians GO Europe!" aims at motivating as many Styrian youngsters as possible to accept the challenge of an internship abroad and make their obligatory or their voluntary internship at a company or institution abroad."Young Styrians GO Europe!" supports the students of the participating Styrian upper-level secondary VET schools and the apprentices of the participating Styrian enterprises to receive the EU funding, provided by the EU-programme Erasmus+; and to prepare, to realise and follow up the internships in the best possible way!"Young Styrians GO Europe!" is convinced that internships represent a unique chance for Styrian students and apprentices to gain practical work experiences which the Styrian participants could hardly gain in Austria.Here are some strong arguments, from the project partners’ point of view in favour of making an internship abroad:- Experiencing the opportunities the European Union offers to its citizens- Acquisition of new practical and theoretical knowledge and competences.- Increasing the chances in the labour market: At home and abroad.- Acquisition of intercultural knowledge and intercultural skills.- Improvement of foreign language skills.- Strengthened sense of initiative and an enhanced entrepreneurial spirit.- Strengthening of social and personal skills.- Creation of personal networks (friends and employer) abroad.And many more.Who is " Young Styrians GO Europe!"?
