Marketing Text Since 2004 the OSZ Bürowirtschaft und Verwaltung (College of Business and Public Administration) in Berlin has been sending trainees in the field of office communication for work placements to companies in different countries of the european Union and Turkey, funded by the EU programme Leonardo da Vinci mobility. A 2- to 3-months internship abroad is part of their 3-years vocational traineeship either in the dual system with companies or in the in-door training at school. In 2007 a group of trainees for media and information services took part in the project for the first time. Before the trainees go abroad, they have to attend a special work-based language course with emphasis on cultural and regional aspects of the host countries as well as individual preparations. The objectives (skills and competences) of the placements are part of the trainees' contracts.
the growing internationalisation of the markets, especially the European market has impact on the orientation of vocational training. In future there will be a need of qualified employees with international professional skills, language skills and cross cultural understanding.
The College of business and Public Administration has taken up this challenge in order to improve vocational training on the background of future demand of the European labour market.
The objectives of our school are: to support young people in gaining foreign language competence and cross cultural understanding to initiate individual learning processes in order to develop the personality of the students, their social and international professional skills to prepare them for mobility beyond borders.
