Intercultural competence is getting more and more important. The world of work becomes international, transnational acting common. The result is the need for employees who are capable to act and communicate beyond borders.
Our school feels responsible to teach the students intercultural competence. Therefore we offer a wide range of proposals focusing on Europe and the European world of work.
As we have so far taken only the first steps, we are happy to cooperate with partners all over Europe.
Summary The LEONARDO DA VINCI Mobility project "Ways into Work" was our school's first EU funded project. The main aim was to send a group of students abroad to Italy to gain international working experience and cultural competence. The students had company placements and did a practical training. They were accommodated in guest families to experience and being integrated in the foreign culture. This project was realized in cooperation with our partner school in Francavilla Fontana, ITIS “Enrico Fermi”. Moreover it was supported by the students' training companies, especially Salzgitter AG. All included parties regard this first project as a success, in particular the students. Recently we got the grant for the project "Ways into Work II", which was applied for on request of students who heard about the first project.
