Project activities will consist of 2-week of job practices in Bulgaria directed to studens from school "SOU VP", Vinica who study there professions of textile work. The main aim of those practices is to gain experience, develompment of key job competences as well as soft skills and gaining a better start position on job market after finishing school education. The participants will work on various positions related to their education plan in the school.There will be one activity under this project and it will be held in the town Berkovitsa / Bulgaria, We will have 25 students and 2 accompanying persons between dates: (From 6/8/2016 to 21/8/2016)The students will spend two weeks in Berkovitsa, Bulgaria, accumulating new experiences in their professional fields. Each group will be accompanied by one teacher and one coordinator representative, who must speak English. During the internship, the students will get familiar with the specifics of the work (textile). The hosting organizations will be: Vet Centre PLAMAK from Bulgaria. The institution has a broad experience in organizing job practices, previously have worked in the frames of "Erasmus+ projects, they have sufficient organizational capabilities, contacts on local labour market - which will ensure the realization of all activities on the highest standard - concerning organization and logistics as well as essentials. Then the demand of seasonal worker who know English rises. During the training the students will have an opportunity to get to know with good practices of work in the field of their studies. The work schedule (attached to the application) consists of various types of activities so we can divide the group of trainees into smaller teams responsible for doing the job corresponding with their learning programme in Macedonia. The key competences they will learn, will help the students in their everyday work in textile factories in Macedonia where they have their everyday practical training, as well as later on when they will be looking for a job. They will be able to present much more skills and knowledge to the potential employers increasing the chance of employment. Moreover if they decide to look for a job abroad they will already have an experience of working in a foreign country as well as they will have widely recognized documents certifying their work competences.Apart from concrete work competences - the training will surely foster individual development of young people. Thanks to spending those 2 weeks abroad, they will become more independent, doing their everyday duties will encourage them to present more responsible attitudes, they will become more self-aware on their worth, will start to believe more in themselves. They will have a possibility to compare their education and skills to their peers in other countries, realize that they are not so much different and help them to get rid of complexes. The important factor will be development of social skills by working in an international environment. They will develop their language skills (English + Bulgarian) as well as non-verbal communication methods. During the language courses we will provide we will focus on teaching a job-related vocabulary which will be surely an invaluable asset to the young people. After the project we have planned various ways of dissemination of results involving trainees. They will prepare press articles - for the school newspaper as well as for local press. They will prepare a presentation for local students from their school and other nearby schools as well as other small events directed to students, teachers, local organizations, institutions and employers from textile sector.
