Traineeship abroad:

In co-operation with the parents’ association it is also possible to gain in-depth practical knowledge in international enterprises. For this reason we can help you to apply for an external practical internship (in Europe). Under certain circumstances it may also be possible to apply for a financial support for the trainings abroad - the so-called Leonardo da Vinci Support.

An external traineeship abroad will offer you the possibility to deepen your language skills, to get in touch with foreign cultures and to develop both professionally and personally. Such traineeships abroad are special qualifications that will help you to find employment after having finished the school.

Once the traineeship is successfully completed, the participants will receive a special certificate (the so-called “Europass Mobilität”).
