Youth Undertakes Mobility Projects - Stipendien für Absolventen und Absolventinnen in künstlerisch-kreativen Berufen
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

YUMP – Youth Undertakes Mobility Projects – aims to cover the needs of Berlin’s creative economy, which we previously identified. Berlin is evolving into the true Mecca of the creativeiIndustries, which have developed throughout the past years into a serious economical factor. Therefore, not only designers, agencies, lifestylemagazins, fotographers and trendscouts but also clients from across the globe are drawn to this young city which burst with fresh vibes. Persons who wish to work in this professional field have to possess a comprehensive skill set like social, intercultural and most of all foreign language skills. YUMP is a path for learners to reach it! The project targets three groups of participants: 1) VET learners (dual system or school based) recently graduated in creative professions and in professions, which support the creative industry (e.g. marketing assistants, business managers, etc.) 2) VET learners from art and crafts professions (artist blacksmithing/ carpentry, etc), who attend university level courses (Meisterschule) and in many cases will take over a family business. 3) VET staff from vocational colleges of Arts YUMP offers recent graduates the opportunity to gain real life experience in a work place across Europe and to develop the competencies named above. It offers to learners from art and crafts courses the possibility to get acquainted with the market and working conditions in other European countries before they take over the family business. Finally, it offers to VET staff for the first time the opportunity to know the working and training conditions in the creative industry across Europe and thereby to compare these to the German vocational training.
