International Field Study Work in Groups

Students in vocational training experience many advantages for their professional development during and after international work experiences in Europe. The majority of participants feel that it has increased their confidence in general and to work internationally, fostered their mobility and enhanced their CVs & therefore their employability.

It opened up a whole new world of possibilities and opportunities which many participants have not even considered before going on an international placement.

International Field Study Work in groups create a platform to interact in another language, link up with experienced professionals in their vocational area of work in order to learn from them, explore the subject in depth and engage with the community through meetings & surveys in order to capture their perception about the subject matter in the host country. This option in comparison to the classical placement is in particular useful for complex and very regulated professions for which the average 4 weeks period abroad is not sufficient to provide a meaningful placement experience.

Currently Embrace hosts 13 apprentices (4 weeks program) from the German Pension Institute, Deutsche Rentenversicherung Bund in Berlin in cooperation with our coordinating partner organisation in Berlin which receives funding from the EU for mobility projects. The group visited the East Lancashire Chamber of Industry and Commerce which was a great success. For more information please visit:

During their time in the UK the students will also explore the local history as well as the impact of the elections have or will have on their area of work. We will keep you posted.
