Our school offers vocational qualification in fields of horticulture, environment protection, landscape gardening and construction, floristry and textile work. Our school offers secondary and upper secondary level vocational education for full-time students and upper secondary education for distance-learners (adult education). The project”Learning through Experience in Europe” gives the students of Räpina School of Horticulture the opportunity to gain experience in various educational institutions, companies and organisations in Europe, enhancing the skills and competences of students via international cooperation and authentic work experience in different cultural environments. The placement helps students to gain their vocational qualification and supports their personal professional development. The opportunity to gather the safeguarded work experience abroad will be given to 56 students which will help to improve their further career prospects. During the project the staff and teachers of Räpina School of Horticulture will be given the opportunity to practice their speciality and gather the experience in educational institutions and companies of our foreign partners with the aim of cooperation and experience exchange between the vocational schools of partner countries and employing companies. One school teacher will teach in a receiving vocational institution and other staff members will perform their practical work in vocational institutions and companies. There are 11 receiving partner schools from 9 countries taking part in the project: English Heritage Osborne House in Great Britain – during the project there will be 4 students of landscape construction and 4 speciality teachers; AOC Groene Welle in Holland - 8 floristry and landscape construction students; South Savo Vocational College in Finland - 4 gardening students; HAMI Häme Vocational Institute in Finland – 4 gardening and landscape construction students and 2 speciality teachers; Maison Familiale Rulale Horticole in France - 4 gardening and landscape construction students; Gregor-Mendel Berufskolleg in Germany - 4 landscape construction students and 2 speciality teachers; Ernst-Benary Schule in Germany - 10 gardening and landscape construction students, a speciality teacher and an assistant director; Bildungszentrum Gartenbau Langenlois in Austria - 6 gardening and landscape construction students, an adult education specialist and a speciality teacher is going to work as a teacher; Bulduri Gardening School- 4 floristry students; VEA in Sweden - 4 gardening and landscape construction students, one speciality teacher and a distance learning manager; School for horticulture and visual arts Celje in Slovenia - 4 gardening and landscape construction students, a speciality teacher and a development manager. The placement of students will take place in the spring in 2015 and in 2016, the only exception is the placement in Great Britain where it will take place in autumn. The duration of the placements for students will be 3-4 weeks and for staff members/teachers –2 weeks. Every participant will receive a Europass Mobility. In cooperation with the vocational schools of Holland and Austria the placements will take place in the field of floristry, and the evaluation of the placement will occur through ECVET (European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training). The implementation of ECVET with other partner countries in different educations is one of the most important tasks in this specialists exchange project. The new practical skills and theoretical knowledge gained abroad constitute an essential part in the development of educational system of Räpina School of Horticulture. The main goal of the project is to compare the teaching standards and methods of Räpina School of Horticulture with other European vocational horticultural schools by using ECVET. Thanks to competences and experience gathered abroad the education which is offered at Räpina School of Horticulture will better correspond to real expectations of horticultural companies towards young workers and support the free movement of labour force from our school. The placements abroad can offer useful experience in implementation of modern and different technologies as well in education as in traineeship and give students a practical experience on how to use these techniques. The mobility projects enhance the quality of education and the reputation of Räpina School of Horticulture. The experience which our students gathered abroad will further be shared with others, increasing the popularity of horticultural education by attracting more young people to vocational schools. Similarly, the Estonian horticultural companies can get new ideas from students who have returned from abroad, and as a result gardening will develop across the nation.
