IntervetWB first mobility after the pandemic: BH VET students in Wroclaw, Poland

With the improvement of the overall epidemiological situation, preparations have begun for the actual mobility of students and teachers of secondary vocational schools from Bosnia and Herzegovina within the IntervetWB project.

After last year’s selection of students, this spring began preparations for activities for BH high school students to have their first mobility in the Polish city of Wroclaw. Preparations consisted of a 30-hour online English course organised by the IUS English Language School (ELS) and also departure training organised by a representative of Uniser leader of the IntervetWB project.

Students of mixed technical schools from BH cities; Bihac, Bosanska Krupa, Maglaj, Vogosca, Hadzici, Gracanica, and Sarajevo, 11 of them and the leader of the group, IUS student Aida Kadric, are the IntervetWB Round 1 group, traveled to Wroclaw on June 20, 2021.

The internship for our high school students has been postponed for more than a year due to the outbreak of the Covid 19 pandemic. The students did not hide their excitement and for many of them, this will be their first internship ever and also the first in an EU member state. The internship in Wroclaw will last 4 weeks and organised in cooperation with the IntervetWB partner Mode – Move and Develop Foundation, a project partner in Poland. BH students will have the opportunity to have learned by doing experience in companies in Wroclaw.

It is worth reminding that partner of this valuable EU project for Bosnia and Herzegovina is the IUS Lifelong Learning Center of the International University of Sarajevo – IUS. The project brought together 6 countries of the Western Balkans and 8 member states of the EU.

The project aims to internationalise secondary vocational education and improve employability in Albania, Montenegro, Macedonia, Kosovo, Serbia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina.  Cheerful BH students sent greetings from Wroclaw, Poland.

The next public call for applications for an internship in Italy will be published this summer, and the right to participate has students from all mixed high schools in Bosnia and Herzegovina, aged 17 years.

The next mobility call will be published on the official website of the INTERVETWB project, IUS / IUS LIFE official page, business portal Akta.ba, Chamber of Economy FBH, and social networks.
