The target group of our cross-border practical tarining project comprises trainees from the 3-year dual training course for "Business Employees with a European Qualification". In their first year A-level students attend full-time courses at the one-year commercial college where special emphasis is laid on languages:English, French, Spanish and their particular use in business contexts. At the beginning of their two-year dual vocational training "company/school" in an internationally and export orientated enterprise in the region of Aachen, the so-called EUREGIO MEUSE-RHINE, they take part in a practical training of 4 weeks in the UK, in Spain or France. They choose the country according to their preferred language. During their work placements abroad the students gain first professional experiences in a company of an EU member country and can at the same time improve their language, intercultural and job-related skills.
Particularly the EUREGIO needs well-trained and highly qualified people whose skills are not exclusively job-related but who have language and intercultural skills, i.e. international competence they need for their cross-cultural activities. By offering intensive language training and the posibility to do a practical training abroad our project aims at providing youn people with language and intercultural skills in complex business situations and in cooperating with people from different cultural backgrounds.
