Internationality at Careeria
Internationality and multiculturalism are part of the modern study and working life environment. Careeria’s international operations support the skills of our students and our staff. The operation and activities of our educational institution are developed, and our levels of expertise updated through working together with international partners.
Erasmus+ -mobility placements are arranged for students and staff. This is possible due to our contacts and cooperation networks throughout Europe and the world. Competence points are accumulated during the student’s international exchange, and the placement is a part of the required studies leading to the qualification. Careeria wishes to make international experience available to as many interested students as possible. An important source of support funding for the years 2022–2027 is the Erasmus+ Mobility Accreditation.
International activities are coordinated by experts from the Quality, Development and Responsibility Unit who, along with the Internationality experts from different fields of education, complete Careeria’s Internationality Team.
Careeria cooperates with several foreign educational institutions and companies regarding student and staff exchanges, or familiarization periods. Careeria is visited by foreign students, teachers and experts throughout the school year. Careeria is involved in various European development projects, the goals and outputs of which correspond to Careeria’s strategic targets and development spearheads: learning and pedagogy, digitalisation, working life cooperation, and personnel and well-being. Cooperation is carried out with many educational institutions and workplaces located in different parts of Europe. Important cooperation countries are, for example, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the Czech Republic.
- Careeria encourages internationality because it:
- Develops an inividual’s skills and self-confidence
- Improves language skills and broadens understanding of the subject being studied
- Increases abilities to function in a multicultural work environment
- Enhances employment possibilities
- Helps people to make new acquaintances and find contact
The international placement period or study-visit takes place at a school or workplace. The period abroad takes place most commonly towards the end of the student’s overall studies. During the period abroad skills are acquired in accordance with the vocational qualification being studied. International activity may also take place domestically as well as in foreign countries.
