Summary The project GATE was/is being realized for 15 students aged between 18 and 20 (at the time of the practical training: beginning of the third year of their apprenticeship as office communications administrators). By realizing the project GATE our vocational school – together with the Telekom Training Centre of Deutsche Telekom AG (DTAG) as well as our partners of the Xarxa-network in Sheffield, Rovaniemi and Göteborg – would like to contibute to the following aims: By enhancing our students’ linguistic ability in English and their intercultural competence, their chances (after having finished their training) to find a post on the European or/and German labour market shall be improved. Not only shall this project contribute in enabling our students to find a job in Europe after having finished their apprenticeship but it shall also strengthen their willingness to work in another European country for a longer time. Our apprentices shall have a better chance to be offered a post at DTAG, a global player, who attaches great importance to such qualifications.The project was/is being realized from the mid/end of August until the beginning/mid of September (3 weeks) within the scope of a practical training at companies in Rovaniemi, Sheffield and Göteborg. The preparation (intercultural training especially) as well as the evaluation of the project took place in Cologne – at our vocational school and at the Telekom Training Centre.
