Mobility in vocational secondary school

PluriMobil offers a set of lesson plans for upper secondary students who are undertaking their initial training at a vocational school or during an apprenticeship, and who are offered the possibility to go on a work placement in a host company. A work placement abroad can be a particular challenge for young people. Firstly, they have to do their job in a foreign language that they may not speak very well.  Secondly, they have to cope with a different cultural and linguistic working environment in which rules, values and norms may be different than the ones they know (for example, concerning dealing with their superior(s), hours of work, socialising, etc.).

Lesson plans

PluriMobil offers 9 lesson plans for vocational secondary school and ready-made materials that support the entire process of mobility. 

The pupils involved in mobility will be the citizens of tomorrow. Consequently, their stay abroad/in another community will aim at different kinds of objectives:

  • plurilingual competences;
  • intercultural communicative competences;
  • intercultural competence in the workplace;
  • autonomous learning skills.
