B.5          summary

 

Please provide a short description of your proposal (max 1 page, 30 lines). You are kindly requested to provide this summary in English, French or German. (Parts of this summary may be used in directories of successful projects). A summary in English, French or German is obligatory if the application is not written in one of the EU languages.

(The Summary should be structured around the following headings: 1 - Justification of the proposal, in particular how it addresses the training needs of the participants; 2 - Content of Placements and/or exchanges, including accreditation and validation arrangements; 3 – Partnership; 4 - Project management and operational timetable)

- We propose a cooperation between 3 Hungarian higher educational institutions (BUTE, Dunaujváros Polytechnic, Budapest Polytechnic of Technology) and BITKOM (a German association representing more than 1200 enterprises of informatics) with the expert help of a French higher educational institute (CNAM), a German company (IBISTRA) and a Hungarian company (DUNAFERR), experienced in vocational training on all level. The activity proposed in the present application is the practical training of 30 Hungarian students of informatics at German enterprises for 3-5 months. BUTE, CNAM, IBISTRA and DUNAFERR have been cooperating in the framework of European programs (Phare and Tempus) during the last 4 years in the establishment of alternating higher educational training (Sandwich-training) at BUTE. This means that the traditional academic training at universities gets more practical, vocational elements with the integration of industrial semesters during the last two years of the university training. This type of educational program has been accepted by all faculties of BUTE, it has been integrated into the system of the university and the actual training is now in its 4th year. The new element in our proposed alternating training is that the industrial semester or semesters would be organized in international setting, at German enterprises. During the previously mentioned international cooperation the need for Sandwich type education with industrial periods in a foreign country was formulated by the consortium. This need met the need of German enterprises for informaticians. There is a huge shortage of educated informaticians in Germany (formulated by the chancellor of Germany G. Schröder as well) and as one possible solution the association of small and medium size enterprises proposed the present cooperation between Hungarian higher educational institutions with informatician training and German companies. The 3 Hungarian institutions would send a total of 30 students of informatics to a German company for practical training as part of their Sandwich type training or for project work towards their diploma thesis. This cooperation would be beneficial to all participants; students would get very valuable international experience, specific professional skills and they would have a better idea of a real life working situation, the universities would be able to provide the preferred vocational and international element in their training, and the companies would get trained workers for the duration of the practical training. As an additional positive result the German association suggested that in case of a successful cooperation between a company and a student, the company would help the interested students to start their own small enterprise in Hungary upon graduation. The company would provide work for this small enterprise in Hungary, which would be obviously beneficial for both parties. The present application for the mobility would only be considered a pilot phase for this type of cooperation. We are making another application under the pilot project measure of Leonardo program, to establish this type of international cooperation for longer term, to make the necessary curriculum developments, to investigate the legal, financial and administrative conditions and to disseminate the results of this pilot phase. Our pilot project application needs the experiences of the first 30 students, therefore the 2 applications are very strongly related. Nevertheless this mobility application would be valuable on its own as well. The project is planned for 18 months and will be carried out by the above mentioned consortium. The main activities: months 1-6.: selection of enterprises, students, language, communication training in Hungary; months 7-12.: practical placement, language, business  training in Germany;  months 13-18.: academic evaluation of practical placement, foundation of small business in Hungary. Final evaluation, dissemination.

We underline that besides the needs of students, universities the project corresponds to the needs of German SMEs, and it helps to satisfy this need without a "brain drain" effect (as the young workers create their business and stay in Hungary).


 

C.      project aim

In filling in this section please use half page/15 lines max per question or group of questions

4

C.1.         Justification of the proposal

1.        What needs (e.g. sectoral, regional, institutional, etc.) does your project address? In particular what are the specific training needs of your project's beneficiaries?

-

Engineering programs at Hungarian higher educational institutions in general have very little practical elements, but with the introduction of alternating type training, industrial semesters, this vocational element gets more emphases in the overall training program. In the proposed program the interested students would also get an opportunity to become self-employed entrepreneurs in Hungary as the result of this mobility. However, if they prefer to enter the job market after graduation, the international experience combined with their experiences in real life working situation and the specific professional skills they acquire during the training at the company will give them a much better start in finding a good job. The training needs of the students on one hand are profession specific, for example software engineering in practice, on the other hand they need experiences in communication (in a foreign language and in general), in business management and in international business/cooperation. Coming from the Central European region, especially from a country, which is planning to be part of the European Union our students would really need any international experience they can get. The proposed international practical training would give them this experience in the main field of their university training and in the competitive, enterprise sector.

 

2.        How does your project address the programme objectives and the priority of the call for proposals which you indicated above?

3.        What are the specific objective(s) of the project in respect to all different involved parties: beneficiaries, sending and host organisations, intermediary organisations (if any)? In what way the specificity of the Leonardo da Vinci programme helps you achieving your objectives?

2.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3.

Objective 1, To improve the skills and competencies of people, especially  young people, in initial vocational training at all levels, with a view to facilitating their integration and reintegration into the labour market: According to the objectives of the project Hungarian students in informatics will work at a small or medium size German enterprise (4-6 months practical placement) which improves their professional, especially practical competence. The other elements of training (language, communication skills) correspond to the needs of all partners. The creation of students' small business in Hungary (by the help of German enterprises) obviously facilitates the integration of the student into the labour market.

Objective 3: To promote and reinforce the contribution of vocational training to the process of innovation, with a view to improving competitiveness and entrepreneurship, also in view of new employment possibilities:Besides the importance of the vocational training period for all main partners (enterprise, student, university) we underline the new element of "distance work" (i.e. work in Hungary for a German enterprise) followed by the creation of students' own small enterprise.

Priority 2. Partnership : to encourage cooperation at all levels between vocational training bodies, and companies, in particular SMEs and the social partners, in order to improve the relevance and effectiveness of training;: A real equal cooperation is planned (with participation of SME, intermediate organisations, higher education) in all elements (selection, training, evaluation, extension) based on the earlier experience of the consortium members (e.g. double tutorship).

 

The Leonardo project would help to a high quality satisfaction of the needs fof all participants using new methodological elements and without a "brain drain" effect.


 

 

4.        Does your project target sectors traditionally not involved in mobility actions? Do you plan to introduce new arrangements for the implementation of the project in terms of management, preparation of beneficiaries, pedagogical methods, supervision and follow-up, other?

 

Practical placements are not typical for the engineering training even inside Hungary. The first industrial foreign placements (supported by Leonardo) will begin only this year for students with sufficient French language skills.

 Some pedagogical elements of alternative education (selection procedure, double tutorship, evaluation etc.) were worked out by the partners (BUTE, CNAM, Dunaferr, IBISTRA) in the earlier Hungarian placements (see: http://tutor.nok.bme.hu/sandwich/general/mtitle.htm).

 Other elements (follow up in 2 countries, German language preparation, small business creation etc. ) has to be worked out in these projects.

 

.

5.        How does your placement/exchange project fit into the beneficiaries’ training course/work programme?

6.        How are the target country(ies), the host organisation(s) and the envisaged duration of the placements/exchanges relevant to the training needs of beneficiaries?

5.

 

 

6.

The practical placements are becoming an integral part of the engineering training of Hungarian higher education this time. At BUTE the possibility is created for all faculties (for some faculties it is obligatory). The programs of the Colleges involved (BPT, DUP) contain a practical training as well. So the project completely corresponds to the development of work-related training programs.

The length of these placements is not fixed at university level. There is a possibility of two placements (sandwich course), of one placement or a diploma work at an enterprise. At college level the length will be 3-5 months. The proposed duration corresponds to the needs of the SMEs.

 

7.        If your proposal is part of reciprocity agreements with foreign organisations, please describe the wider context introduced by such reciprocity agreements and the added benefits for all involved parties.

-

-


 

 


8.        If your proposal is combined with proposals/projects presented in this call under other measures, please describe the wider context in which the proposal has to fit, its relevance to and interdependence with the other proposals/projects and the expected added value

-

The consortium members would like to work out a long term cooperation based on the ideas presented above. We are planning to present a Leonardo pilot project titled: "Alternative training of informaticians – prospective small entrepreneurs in International cooperation" (INFGERM).

In case of acceptance of both (pilot and mobility) projects: The main elements will be developed in the pilot project (management, organizational structure, selection procedure /enterprise, student/, teaching materials /language, communication, culture, small business/, academic evaluation, small business creation etc.). Different methods of realization (e.g. 1 or 2 placements, training by classic or distance teaching methods) will be proposed and they will be piloted by control groups, the results will be compared, evaluated and disseminated. The mobility project in this case will be a pilot use of the structures developed, it will cover the expenses related to the training of these 30 students (placement, training). The proposed pilot project would not finance this student mobility, therefore no double financing would occur. As there is a large need in this kind of cooperation (several thousands of workers are needed) after these pilot and mobility projects the structure could work on its own (without further outside financial support).

In case of acceptance of the mobility project alone: The project can focus on the successful organization of the placements of the 30 students, and the simplest solution of other elements. There will be no possibility to create the structure, to develop special materials, to work with control groups, to guarantee the long term functioning (without further support). But we repeat that this mobility application would be valuable on its own as well.

 

 


 

 

C.2.         Results

What are the expected results for the different involved parties: beneficiaries, sending and host organisations, intermediary organisations (if any)?

-

German Enterprises: They receive academically well prepared specialists, who can be used for practical work in the 3-5 months period of placement. In case of joint satisfaction the Hungarian students can do a further distance work for the company.

Students: They can achieve practical experience to their academic knowledge, develop language, communication and business skills, create their own small enterprise, be more competitive on the labor market.

Hungarian Higher Educational Institutions: The project helps them to strengthen the relations between economy and education, to develop the structures for practical placements, which corresponds to the needs of time and specifically the goal set by the university.

Intermediary organizations (here BITKOM, IBISTRA): They do their work. This kind of co-operation can not be realized without their participation.

EU, Central European countries: The project can serve as an example (for possible extension) for the methodologically well-prepared co-operation between EU enterprises and CE educational institutions.

E.2.         Content of the placement/exchange:

1.        Provide a description of the training/work experience planned in the host organisations.

2.        Will the placement/exchange test products developed by a pilot project? If so please give details.

-

The main activity will be practical work in informatics according to the needs of enterprise and to the needs of the students. The selection of the company-student partnership will be based on the needs-analysis taking both actors into account. The host organization will present itself to the university (based on the unified methodology of the project).

YES. As it was described in C.1.8. in case of acceptance of both (pilot and mobility) projects the main elements of the training will be developed in the framework of the pilot project (management, organizational structure, selection procedure /enterprise, student/, teaching materials /language, communication, culture, small business/, academic evaluation, small business creation etc.). The pilot project work will be partly based on the experiences of the mobility and the second round of training will use the results of the pilot project. There will be different methods of realization (e.g. 1 or 2 placements, training by classic or distance teaching methods) proposed and they will be piloted by control groups, the results will be compared, evaluated and disseminated. The mobility project in this case will be a pilot use of the structures developed, it will cover the expenses related to the training of the first 30 students (placement, training). In case of acceptance only of the mobility project we can focus on the successful organization of the students' placements, and the simplest solution of other elements.

E.3.          Project management.

Describe the actions, arrangements and tools planned for:

1.        finalising the structure of the project, by identifying clearly the various stages and the role of each partner;

2.        ensuring that  all partners respect their commitment , if possible by means of a formal written agreement;

3.        ensuring proper management of the project, including contractual and financial aspects;

4.        ensuring communication between all partners (e.g. Steering Committee and/or other co-ordination committees, meetings, etc.);

5.        evaluating the project as a whole, and providing reports to the National Agencies.

Provide a time schedule for each of the actions above

-

The first stage of the project is to set up a management unit (at BUTE) for the handling of administrative, contractual and financial aspects. The project Steering Committee will be formed (containing representatives of all partners). This committee decides about the main activities, and regularly (min. 3 times) carries out the monitoring, evaluation tasks.  - by Sept.2000.

During this first stage persons responsible to carry out all the actions listed below (selection, training etc.) will be chosen. For the continuous monitoring of the achievements and for interchanging ideas and experiences this selected group will have coordination meetings, normally they will communicate via email – by Oct. 2000.

The second stage is the preparation for the selection of the students-company partnerships. Companies will be presented at the educational institutions by their union (BITKOM, IB), and interested students will be gathered (BUTE, DUP, BPT). The experience of CNAM, DUF will be used. There will be a needs-analysis carried out to identify the elements of the selection procedure. This will need information gathering visits from-to the enterprises or the intermediary institution. - by Nov. 2000.

The third stage is to carry out the selection procedure. Students have to be tested on their language competencies (English, German - by this time the criteria are set by the BUTE, DUP, BPT), and any other aspects which were identified in the previous stage. Based on this selection, the list of student-enterprise partnerships must be complete by Dec. 2000.

In the fourth stage the selected students and enterprises together with their university tutors will prepare for the placement, identifying the special needs of the students and the companies which might require special training (e.g. additional language courses) before the actual placement takes place. The students will undergo the specified additional training, and start the preparation for their professional work at the enterprise under the supervision of their university tutors. The project management will prepare the contracts between the enterprise and the students. All the necessary preparation will be carried out for the realization of the training (travel arrangements, accommodation, etc.) - by March 2000.

Stage Five. The first placements will take place between March  - August 2000. Common methodological elements will be worked out based on experience of CNAM, DUF. During the training the academic tutor will be in contact with the student, the work will be monitored through these 3-5 months. It is planned to repeat all these stages for a 2nd group of students (September –February 2001).

Stage Six. Evaluation of practical placement, foundation of small business in Hungary. - by Nov. 2001. In the Seventh stage the monitoring, the evaluation of the end-product and the reports from the companies will be the base for the final evaluation of the project. Conclusion will be drawn from all partners, the results will be disseminated and the possibility of future cooperation will be discussed with all participants - by February 2002.

 


 

E.4.          management of the placements/exchanges

Describe the actions, arrangements and tools planned for:

1.        informing potential candidates;

2.        finding and selecting the host organisations, if not yet identified; please indicate whether you foresee preparatory visits to the host organisations, and approximately how many;

3.        selecting  the beneficiaries (please specify also the selection criteria);

4.        securing that all beneficiaries respect their commitment;

5.        organising and providing pedagogic, cultural and linguistic preparation to the beneficiaries (before and/or during the placement/exchange);

6.        making arrangements for travel, accommodation, insurance of the beneficiaries;

7.        defining training/work programme which will be carried out by the beneficiaries during the placement/exchange;

8.        supervising the placement/exchange (supervision might be ensured by the sending and/or by the host organisations; it might also include the pastoral care of the beneficiaries by an accompanying person, when necessary);

9.        evaluating the results achieved for all involved parties (beneficiaries, sending and host organisations);

10.     disseminating the results, at national and transnational level: describe your dissemination strategy, the tools/arrangements you plan to use and the target publics.            

For each of the actions above please provide a time schedule and indicate involved partners and expected results.

 

1. The German companies will be informed by the German partners (BITKOM, IB) The students will be informed by the higher educational institutions (BUTE, DUP, BPT) by Oct. 2000.

2. For the selection of the suitable enterprises we plan preparatory visits (about 5 short visits or as much as needed, which will be financed by own sources) - by Nov. 2000.

3. The selection criteria for students-company partnerships will be based on experience of CNAM, DUF and the results of needs analysis carried out by the project. These criteria will contain probably the following elements: academic competence, language (English - working, German - basic), personal ability, motivation, skill test. by Dec. 2000.

4. The project management will make contracts for the beneficiaries of the planned activities (companies-students) by Jan. 2001. There will be a regular monitoring of the process.

5. There will be a pre-placement training (language, communication etc. to be defined) in Hungary, during placement in Germany (professional, business, language), after placement (founding small business) in Hungary. - by Dec. 2001.

6. All travel, accommodation, insurance arrangement will be done by March 2000 with the help of the project management unit in co-operation with IBISTRA.

7. The work program will contain common elements determined based on the experience of BUTE, DUF, CNAM, IB (presentation of the company, intermediate conference, etc.). The main part will be proposed by the enterprise and accepted by BITKOM, IB and BUTE, DUP, BCT correspondingly.

8. The general supervising will be a task of the project management, the German partners (BITKOM, IB). The students will be in contact with their academic tutor. A conference is planned with the participation of all interested partners during the placement time.

9. The evaluation will be based on the reports of the students, enterprises, and a conference.

10. As there is a large need in this training form after the pilot stage the consortium plan the regular work of the program. Information about the activities will be available on the Internet. In case of acceptance of the Pilot Project the structure, materials developed will be presented as well.

 

 

 

E.5.         Validation and accreditation Strategy

How will validation and accreditation of the training/work period be ensured? By whom? What will its legal value be? (please add a model of the document foreseen, if any)

-

The aim of a typical placement will be the preparation of the diploma work. Its worth is 30 credit points (special accreditation is not required). If the student defends successfully his thesis then it proves from an academic viewpoint the value of the placement.

Another formal validation is the report prepared by the student and the enterprise. The real validation from this vocational viewpoint is of course if the student creates his own small business and the enterprise is ready for the joint work.

It is under investigation that the educational institutions can add a supplement to the diploma, which indicates the participation of the student in this project financed by EU Leonardo da Vinci program.
