Summary

The adverse demographic development lowers the number of our students. The interest about vocational education is also low. These reasons imply that our school enrolls students with weaker school results as well, with a serious lack of knowledge and skills, their reading abilities are poor, they cannot think in a constructive way or find logical connections. This group also contains students from with Romani ethnicity, who come from a socially disadvantaged environment and who does not have the chance to fulfill their school duties at home. These students usually leave school before finishing their studies.
The competence of our teachers is excellent. They attend different courses in order to learn how to use modern technologies in teaching. The lack of quality didactic equipment, or the needed technological equipment for practical training of vocational training does not enable to our school to modernize its educational and teaching program and to prepare students for the job market of the EU.
The main aim of the project is to improve the quality and appeal of vocational education in the field of architecture, graphics, electrical engineering and to internationalize our school.
The school wants to concentrate on those fields in the working program, in which it cannot ensure a quality vocational training, or vocational practice. The school does not have a workshop for the students of the field of architecture, or a modern laboratory, where students would be able to carry out tests of materials. The mobility of students of architecture concentrates on the architecture of the target state as well. Students learn about the most important rules applied in artistic creation in a certain era in a certain state in concrete lucrative places. It enables them to understand better the architectural disposition, i. e. the plans and the altitude range of construction, the arrangement of volumes, masses and their composition. In case of the students of the study field graphics of digital media, we would like concentrate on the work with applied software to create web pages, to edit photoes and videos. In case of students from the study field of mechanic electrician we would like to improve their knowledge from the fields of manufacture of PCBs, programming of machines and equipment.
In order to achieve success in work and in life, students need - apart from professional knowledge and skills - to learn how to work in a team, how to communicate with others. The mobility enables them to learn about new modern technologies, working steps, and to learn how to deal with the problems, to adapt to a different linguistic working environment. The mobility also enables them to learn about another state of the EU, about its history and present, its culture, mentality, they make new contacts and new friends.
The participants of the project represent five fields of studies: architecture, IT and technical services in architecture, mechanic electrician, graphic of digital media, car mechanic.
The number of participants from the perspective of target states:
a) Target state: the UK - Portsmouth. Number of participants: 8. Study fields: graphic of digital media, mechanic electrician, architecture, It and technical services in architecture. The estimated time of the mobility: October/November 2014. Length: 3 weeks
b) Target state: Hungary - Budapest. Number of participants: 8. Study fields: mechanic electrician, car mechanic. The estimated time of the mobility: October/November 2014. Length: 3 weeks.
Taking into consideration the fact that our region does not contain a lot of firms, students do not have the chance to attend vocational training in real firms. The practicing of theoretical knowledge and practical skills enables us to improve their professional training. The participants are underage their health condition is excellent, they do not need any special care. Their linguistic competence corresponds with CEF's requirements for B1/B2 level.
The vocational training should enable students to improve the following skills:
-to learn about new working methods and steps,
-to gain information about new technologies and applications,
-to learn about the working morals and discipline of the workplaces,
-to practice a foreign language in everyday communication,
-to learn the professional vocabulary in a foreign language and to use the practical skills,
-to learn about the cultural, social and political life of the states,
-to strengthen the personal self-development,
-to learn about the cultural and historical monument of the target states,
-to expand the whole social horizon of the students,
-to learn about the possibilities of professional development about the job possibilities in the EU.
