View this email in your browser


The objective of the “Vocational Guidance in CLIL” is to promote the free and successful movement of workers in Europe through the use of a Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) methodology The partnership will develop a training platform in order to support, in terms of both vocational guidance and language training, all those people who want to have a job experience in another European country.

Target groups

The target users of the training platform are adults, both employed and unemployed, who have completed their education and are planning to look for a job abroad to start their professional life, to make new experiences or to find a better position.

Training platform

The platform is being developed and will be ready in the next few months.
The training material will follow the CLIL methodology. It will be structured with gradual difficulty and will focus on B2 and C1 levels. At both level, the platform will propose 4 learning modules, addressing all language skills (reading, listening, writing and speaking).
Adults who consider working abroad can train to discover the labour market of the targeted country while improving their language skills.


When the platform is ready, we will proceed to the piloting phase. For this purpose, Apricot will be seeking 20 people who wish to test the platform in one of the project languages (French, German, Italian or Spanish). The learner will have at least a B1 level in the chosen language, will complete all the modules in one level and provide their feedback.
