European partners

Our vocational college fl:bk would like to provide its trainees with increased mobility and flexibility on the future labour market. Therefore, we are permanently striving to broaden our range of extracurricular activities so as to enable our trainees to spend some time abroad in order to gain insight into the living and working culture in other European countries.

Consequently, we are ever on the lookout for new work placement opportunities with European businesses.

Eligible trainees will be in their second year of a three-year training as industrial business management assistants, management assistants in wholesale and foreign trade and office management assistants. Apart from German as their mother tongue the language skills of these trainees include English at least on Level B1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Furthermore, they have knowledge of word processing and are experienced in dealing with spreadsheets and presentation software, which qualifies them for working in business administration.

The work placements should cover a duration of three weeks and there will be no costs whatsoever for businesses willing to offer these opportunities.

We sincerely appreciate you being prepared to offer this extraordinary experience to our trainees and look forward to you contacting us.


Our training network currently consists of the following partner colleges and organisations:

The cooperation agreements comprise

  • finding and providing work placements abroad for full-time students from courses with a special focus on languages and living and working in a European country abroad. Since 1991 we have been able to provide a total of about 990 students with work placements abroad. Most of them have been co-funded by the vocational education segment “Leonardo da Vinci” of the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.
  • carrying out multilateral school projects within the “Comenius” framework. In recent years students worked on projects with European topics at their respective schools for example. The results were presented at annual joint project meetings, which took place in various European countries, and were brought together in a unilateral project outcome.
