For 16 years now students and teachers of Berufskolleg Glas Keramik Gestaltung in Rheinbach have been working together with their partners of the vocational college Stredni Umeleckoprumyslova Skola Slarska (Czech Republic) on European projects (Leonardo).
Annually the students of Berufskolleg Rheinbach participate in this exchange during their second year of vocational training.
This year the project on wax fusing techniques and mould forming was prepared in the graphic and design lessons.
At the Czech partner school moulds were created for the planned objects and finally melted in glass.
Various excursions and lessons in English help to intensify the mutual understanding and cooperation of the students of both vocational colleges.
As a documentation of their additional vocational mobility and activity the students were given the Europapass.
