ARRIVED Mobil – Experience exchange for trainers of migrants and refugees
Since 2015, BGZ and the Berlin Chamber of Small Business and Skilled Crafts are committed to the integration of refugees into the craft. Many refugees have craft skills or knowledge, which can be used in crafts. How can the European countries cooperate in the integration of refugees and learn from each other's experiences?
The project „ARRIVED Mobil“ supports the BGZ-project „ARRIVED-Willkommen im Berliner Handwerk” that offers young refugees from crisis regions a professional training in German skilled crafts enterprises.
“ARRIVED Mobil“ is aimed primarily at trainers of the Berlin craft businesses that already train or would like to train refugees. The project contains an exchange of experiences relating to the professional integration of refugees and migrants. Austria and Spain are the exchange countries. These countries have either, like Germany, large populations of refugees or as Spain due to a large number of migrants and a high youth unemployment, a lot of experience with the professional integration of young people.
In the project “ARRIVED Mobil” a total of 30 professionals in vocational education and training (VETPROs) of the Berlin craft pass an exchange for four days each in Vienna and Barcelona. The exchange serves to learn good practices and subsequently to develop them further. Craft businesses as well as self-governing business institutions, chambers, employers' organizations and vocational training institutions will be visited.
Through the workshops and seminars, the project strengthens the professional skills in the training practice. Moreover, the project aims at expanding work educational and intercultural skills to better meet the needs of trainees with different backgrounds. Thus, the professional integration of refugees is facilitated. Further, the project contributes to enhance the quality and attractiveness of vocational training and education for migrants and refugees and to increase the employability of craft businesses.
