YUMP – Youth Undertakes Mobility Projects – aims to cover the needs of Berlin’s creative economy, which we described previously. Berlin is evolving into the true Mecca of the creativei Industries, which have developed throughout the past years into a serious economical factor. Therefore, not only designers, agencies, lifestylemagazins, photographers 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 two 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. 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.
