Internship abroad within the hairdresser training in Italy

With the help of the financial support of the EU Erasmus+ programme and the organisation of the Braunschweig-Lüneburg-Stade Chamber of Crafts, the trainees Leonie Krämer and Burhan Mustafa were able to complete a three-week internship at a hairdressing salon in Florence, Italy. Thus linguistic and intercultural authority could be developed and the professional experience extended.

Initial situation / Problem:
For more than 26 years, sequa gGmbH has been organising mobility programmes in which trainees are able to spend time abroad in Europe in order to build up and expand their linguistic and professional skills within Europe.
The Erasmus+ programme promotes competences that are becoming increasingly important on the labour market, such as technical and methodological competence, action competence and social competence. By giving young people the opportunity to develop their abilities and skills through experience abroad, the programme makes a small and important contribution to combating youth unemployment in Europe.  
As part of the Erasmus+ programme, Leonie and Burhan completed a three-week internship in Florence. The Scuola Parrucchieri Pino Capasso hairdressing salon celebrated a round birthday this year, as the Italian partner institution has been accepting German trainees for 10 years. 

Project objectives
The overall objective of the mobility programme is to improve and internationalise vocational education and training in Europe. It supports the mobility of trainees in the dual initial training, learners in the first year after the examination and of vocational training personnel. 
Within the internship abroad in the Italian hairdressing salon the experiences in the occupation, in addition, the social, linguistic and intercultural authority should be extended. 

The internship abroad was a positive life experience for both Leonie Krämer and Burhan Mustafa. The stay in the PLUS Hostel Florence made it possible for the trainees to establish social contacts even outside the internship. Furthermore, the exchange of experiences regarding professional competences was helpful for all participating companies. The hospitality of the Italian colleagues was highly appreciated by both trainees and appreciated with a gift from them. And also the Chamber of Crafts honoured the 10 years of successful cooperation with a photo book and a small celebration. 

"It was very nice and interesting to experience how differently the Italians work and to be a part of the team. Everyone was super nice and kind and always helped us." (Leonie Krämer and Burhan Mustafa)
