Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

" Internationalization in the Upper secondary schools in Voss " is an international organization that coordinates international efforts to five secondary schools in Voss. This project includes 11 different program areas that participate in this application. In the application we have partners in several european countries : France, Uk Shetland , Spain , Iceland , Slovenia , Denmark, Hungary and Lithuania. Deployment starts in the autumn of 2015 and continued until spring /summer 2017 . The main objectives is that students and teachers will increase their academic and cultural competence. All four schools are participating and there are only a small number of subject areas that are not represented on the exchange . We aim to get all the subjects of all schools in the long term . We are sending students when they are in their 2. year of upper secondary school. Still we send someone during the 1. year - then at the end of the year. Then they have earned an academic basis from Vg1, the wart one year older and is both personally and professionally more capable for a stay in practice in Europe. Now we have partners that are requesting specific expertise that they wish their students to take part in. Examples of this are including in building trades where energy and environmentally friendly house is started to become a priority in building method inDenmark . In Norway, we are experiencing a labor market that is becoming more and more international. We are part of a global economy , a European labor market and several Norwegian youths take higher education outside the borders of Norway. We find that international experience from upper secondary level will hav an impact that more of our students take higher education in Europe. We also have examples of pupils with Europass that has received priority studies in England. International experience makes our student more innovative and the will bring back experience that is cruical for the companies in Voss. They will have a broader view of their subject and experiences of new working methods , including social structure and linguistic competence as a need locally. We need youths who dare to think an do, they have seen flow projections in separate subjects from another edge. Internationalization in secondary schools Voss is an argument to get young people to apply for our vocational training . The possibility of having a practice abroad is used when we are marketing our programmes. Internationalization will give the students experience in diversity and that they are a minority . This opens for a greater understanding and attitudes that Norway is on its way to becoming a more multicultural nation. We see that internationalization is giving us and our students more than we expect. When we hear their stories from their practice abroad they say that this has been changing their lives for the better in so many ways It is important for us that the practice is academically , culturally and personally funded so that learning outcomes are maximum . We emphasize to be as good at all levels that one is well prepared for an internship abroad. Therefore we intend to focus on evaluation and feedback. Me seeks new partners who can be secure and strengthen fagutddaninga in such a way that the expectations of the practice becomes more than met .
