B.5          summary

Please provide a short description of your proposal (max 1 page, 30 lines) explaining who will be involved in the project, what the project consists of, why it is necessary, and where and when it will take place. You are kindly requested to provide this summary in English, French or German. (Parts of this summary may be used in directories of selected projects). 

A summary in English, French or German is obligatory if the application is not written in one of the EU languages.

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 is the practical training of 30 Hungarian students of informatics at German  and Swedish 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 5 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 5th year. The new element in our proposed alternating training is that the industrial semester will be organized abroad. During the previously mentioned international cooperation the need for Sandwich type education with industrial periods in a foreign country was formulated by the consortium. Based on that demand, a Leonardo mobility project application ( INFGERM) was handed in and won. The implementation of that mobility project has started in September 2000, the first placements will start in February 2001. Based on the first results of this project we can say that there is a great demand for this kind of cooperation on the students’ and on the companies’ side as well. So the same consortium has decided to repeat the application. In this new application the activities are expanded to another country, Sweden, as well, because many students answered the first callout who do not speak German only English, so we needed an expansions to satisfy their needs.

The 3 Hungarian institutions would send a total of 30 students of informatics to a German or Swedish 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 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, intercultural communication training in Hungary; months 7-12.: practical placement, language, business communication training in Germany and in Sweden;  months 13-18.: academic evaluation of practical placement, Dissemination.

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


 

C.      project aim

In filling in this section please use half page/15 lines max per question

 

C.1.         Justification of the proposal

1..... What needs (e.g. sectoral, regional, institutional, etc.) does your project address? In particular, who are your project’s beneficiaries and what are their specific training needs?

2..... How are the target country(ies), the host organisation(s) and the envisaged duration of the placements/exchanges relevant to the 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 programs. As a result of this mobility the students will enter the job market after graduation with international experience combined with their experiences in real life working situation and the specific professional skills they acquire during the training. These 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.

The practical placements are becoming an integral part of the engineering training of Hungarian higher education institutions, so the project completely corresponds to the development of work-related training programs at the educational institutions.

The proposed foreign placements were originally suggested by the German association of IT companies (BITKOM), because of the lack of qualified informaticians available on the German job market. A foreign company which has branches in Hungary, where they would like to employ more young informaticians is particularly interested in this kind of cooperation, because the students participating in the professional training might be viewed as prospective employees or prospective business partners, maybe distance-workers. The company, at a low cost, will know more about the soon graduating student and at the same time, the student will get acquainted with the organization and culture of the mother company. In case of mutual satisfaction the student, upon graduation, can become an employee of the company, a new employee who is not completely new to the company.

The length of these placements is not fixed at university level (according to the Hungarian Requirement of Qualification the engineering programs must contain a minimum 12 week practical placement). The proposed duration corresponds to the needs of the companies.

 

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)?

 

The specific objective of the project is to help the participating students to create business partnerships with their companies following the training maybe as distance workers or to help them to start their own business. If this objective can be achieved, there is a smaller danger of the “brain drain“ effect as the result of the international training.

 

 

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

 

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 German and Swedish enterprises (mainly of small or medium size) which improves their professional, especially practical competence. The other elements of training (language, communication skills) correspond to the needs of all partners.

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 foreign enterprise) following the graduation of the student, where this distance cooperation is the result of the experiences of the training period.

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).

 

5..... What are the innovative aspects of your proposal? (e.g.: 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? etc.)

 

We plan to give a short intercultural communication training to the participating students, preparing them for the foreign circumstances, the differences in the everyday communication in a foreign country and especially in the different customs in business communication.,

 

 

6..... If your proposal is related to one or more mobility proposals with a view to organising reciprocal placements/exchanges (see section B.2), please describe the context and the added benefits for all involved parties.  If the reciprocal application were to be unsuccessful, how would this affect the outcomes or management of your project?

 

 

 

7.....
If your proposal is combined with proposals presented in the current selection year (see section B.3) under other measures, please explain the interdependence with the other proposals and the expected added value

 

 

 

 


 

C.2.         Results AND IMPACT

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

2.     If you have indicated in B.1 that your project targets directly the development of practices to facilitate access to training for people most at a disadvantage in the labour market, including disabled people, and/or equal opportunities for women and men, with a view to combating discrimination in training provision, and/or the promotion of social dialogue in vocational training, please explain how this will be achieved.

3.     Will the placement/exchange test products and/or practices developed by a pilot or a mobility project? If so, please give details.

4.     Do you anticipate any wider impact of the project? If so, what?

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 further distance work for the company or a business cooperation can be established.

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.

We expect that the cooperation of the 3 higher education institutions will have more widely applicable results, especially concerning the organization, monitoring and evaluation of practical placements abroad. The methodology of this kind of placements is not well developed yet, and the experiences of this mobility project can be beneficial to all higher education institutions to develop the necessary selection, monitoring and evaluation methods.

D.4.         Description of the partnership

Please give a brief description of the partnership and of its experience in international mobility.

The partners in this consortium (except for Ericsson) have already had a successfull foreign mobility application in the Leonardo program (INFGERM-Mobility). The implementation of that project is ongoing, and the first experiences are very promising. The methodological and organizational questions will be worked out in the framework of this ongoing mobility project. Those solutions which the partners find and the experience in working together will definitely help the implementation of this proposed, second mobility project.

E.2.         Content of the placement/exchange:

Provide a description of the training/work experience (for each flow of placements) or of the work programme (for each  exchange) planned in the host organisations.  

 

The main activity for both flows will be practical training in the area of informatics according to the needs of enterprise and to the needs of the students. The students will be final year 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) and it will request profiles from the students as well. During the training the tutors assigned to each students will monitor their work and upon completion they will evaluate the training.

 

E.3.         Validation and accreditation Strategy

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

2.     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)

3.     If your project makes use of Europass, describe how the common principles of Europass will be implemented.

 

 

1. The participating students are final year university or college students. The last semester of the university studies at BUTE is a diploma work semester therefore their training is considered as a diploma work and fits to their program naturally. At the colleges the students have a choice to participate in a so called cooperative semester, which is an already existing possibility. These students will chose to become cooperative students (alternating) and this way the placement will become part of their curricula.

2. As described in the above paragraph, the validation and accreditation of the training period has already been solved at the schools. So the participating students will get some kind of credit for the semester, although the solutions will not be uniform at all 3 institutions. For the evaluation of the training abroad each school will develop its own method. What is common is that tutors will be assigned, who will monitor and evaluate the students work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

E.4.          Project management.

1. Describe arrangements for project management, including contractual and financial aspects.

2. Describe the actions, arrangements and tools planned for evaluating and disseminating the results of the project (at national and transnational level).

3.  Outline partners’ roles and your proposed workplan and timetable.

 

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.2001.

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. 2001.

The second stage is the preparation for the selection of the students-company partnerships. The German 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 help the selection procedure. This will need information gathering visits from-to the enterprises or the intermediary institution. - by Nov. 2001.

The third stage is to carry out the selection procedure. Students have to be tested on their language competencies (English, German), 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.2001.

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 2002.

Stage Five. The first placements will take place between March  - August 2002. 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 2002).

Stage Six. Evaluation of the practical placements. - by Nov. 2002.                                                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.  by Jan.2003

The dissemination of the results will be a common interest for all partners. We can extend the activities to other universities, to other countries or other companies and to other professions. The direction of the extension will be determined by the actual demands and needs. Based on the experiences of the previous mobility project each partner will be active in the dissemination and the continuation of the activity if it is successful. Regular meetings and a closing conference will help harmonizing the needs.

 


 

E.5.         ORGANISATION of the placements/exchanges

Describe the actions, arrangements and tools planned for:

-      informing potential candidates and selecting beneficiaries (please specify also the selection criteria);

-      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;

-      ensuring that all beneficiaries respect their commitment;

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

-      making arrangements for travel, accommodation, health and safety, insurance of the beneficiaries, and for entry formalities (passport, visa, work permit) where needed;

-      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) and ensuring mentorship by the host organisation.

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

1. The German and Swedish companies will be informed by the partners (BITKOM, IB, ER) The students will be informed by the higher educational institutions (BUTE, DUP, BPT) by Oct. 2001.

 

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. 2001.

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 the following elements: academic competence, language (English - working, German - basic), personal ability, motivation, skill test. by Dec. 2001

4. The project management will make contracts for the beneficiaries of the planned activities (companies-students) by Jan. 2002. 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, Sweden (professional, business, language)  by Dec. 2001.

6. All travel, accommodation, insurance arrangement will be done by March 2002 with the help of the project management unit in co-operation with IBISTRA, ER.

7. The work program will contain common elements 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, Swedish partners. 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.
