Erasmus+ KA1 – Learning Mobility for Individuals (2015-2017)
Azubi-Mobil is a mobility project running now for more than 6 years. We organize about 100 geographical mobility experiences per year for apprentices contracted by German training companies. The challenge is to secure quality placements. Therefore we established long-standing relations to partners abroad. We also implemented ECVET structures, e.g. we apply defined learning outcomes and the Europass for validation.To open up new opportunities also for SMEs and their apprentices we act as a so-called "Pool-Projektträger". That means we support individual mobilities from all over Germany. To inform yourself about the project please visit also our website www.azubi-mobil.de.
A very important output is the personal and technical improvment of young people that can be observed once they are back home. Many training companies report, that their apprentices come back as persons with more self-confidence, a better command of the foreign language and proud about what they have learned already. That is how the young person benefits from a mobility experience abroad. But also the training companies profits from new approaches braught in and opens up regarding its own internationalization. Since 2012 we also provide learning experiences to VET staff. So we can promote geographical mobility through apprentices because they inform their environment about their experiences - word-of-mouth advertising. But also through VET staff who will be motivated to foster mobility activities in their companies.
