The project assignment for the trainees in media and event management is to organise a series of music and media workshops outside of Germany over a three-week period in Autumn 2004, specifically in youth clubs in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Overall, 21 trainees preparing for careers as event technicians, digital and print media designers, audiovisual media producers, event managers and advertising executives are taking part in the project. At present, they are all in vocational training with one of two Berlin training providers (Arbeitskreis Medienpädagogik e.V. and Pfefferwerk gGmbH). Most of the trainees are on the threshold of the vocational school and work placement phases of their training in the context of Berlin's dual vocational training system. The young people involved are assigned to particular areas within the project according to their specific training profile.
It has been possible to integrate the assignment with the work of a Belfast youth club network that organizes educational projects in the area of digital media as part of their social work with young people. These educational projects are at present being developed, tested and proposed for certification by our partner organization in Belfast, Dream Ireland, as part of a Northern Irish EQUAL development partnership (DP).
The assignment to plan and carry out music and media workshops for young people in Belfast will offer the trainees from Berlin the opportunity to pass on the skills and knowledge they have already attained. This is a chance for them to integrate the experience they have gained with music in their private lives (production, presentation) into their professional career. They will be in a position to recognise and reflect, not only on the professional skills and knowledge they have already gained, but also on the importance of individual suitability and aptitude in preparing for and choosing a career.
