The aim of the project is improvement of language competences in the languages Turkish, Finnish and Hungarian and to strengthen a dialog among different countries and cultures through a new method. The NEWAP team develops a language-learning system based on the basic pattern of a language with focus on concrete experiences related cultural implications and relevant language items located in situations in the target language environment. The NEWAP team does not only develop language materials but it brings distance cultures together. The project applies the observation that the effort to understand related languages implies an exercise in comparing, and it therefore provides a basis for elementary comparison.

The method stresses structural similarities as vowel harmony, lack of gender, agglutinative typology, with correspondences within three languages, reconstructing common proto-forms, explaining the developments leading from them. The basic module makes possible to learn three languages at the same time by comparative approach. The products are language-learning materials cover Finnish, Hungarian and Turkish as foreign languages consist of a basic module for comparative approach for three languages and three separate modules for basic level A2 for each language, with workbook, audio- /video files and glossary.

Projects achievement is the open and unbiased sharing of information and knowledge; informing each European country population about the unique characteristics of another European country population. Knowledge of the “other” will only help to establish bridges between people.  POWAR project aspires to contribute to the knowledge of the “other” and thus to the afore-mentioned goals. Organizations participating in the project are active in various fields, thus being complementary to one another and offering to the project a kaleidoscopic perspective on the issues at hand.

New technologies have facilitated the implementation of the project. They have enhanced the effort to bring together isolated groups of people living in remote corners of Europe and make them express their opinion. Our different past, however, is but a past. The future and the common goals lie ahead. Our knowledge of the “other’s” past makes us less rigorous in our judgement of the “other”, providing us with greater understanding, making us more tolerant and willing to co-operate in order to create a common future for a united Europe.

The companies of DaimlerChrysler group , to which our company belongs as a subsidiary company as well as other bus producers in Ulm and Mannheim, need a flexible,  mobile and qualified work force, which can be utilized at maximum efficiency and productivity in other production facilities in other locations or countries. Within this context, we believe that it would be a great step if we could intialize a mobility project with our EvoBus partners in Ulm and Mannheim, to provide further improvement opportunities for our apprentices which are studying at vocational high schools and attend our Technical Training Center to be improved both on personel and proffesional skills by our trainers and instructors on different branches like Metal Sheet Working, Automative Electrics and Electronics, Painting, Mechanics and Mechatronics.

Since labour is demanded across borders, documentation methods that are closely linked to national (vocational) training systems and their rules are no longer adequate. Practical competences need to be described in a way that is separate from national educational systems and explains practically relevant learning outcomes beyond formal certificates. Especially within the LdV programme major experiences and results has been gathered in the past. One of the projects that has been highlighted as “best-practice” in this area is the project EXEMPLO 2003-2006 (1)

Problems of acquisition and description of competences are still prevailing in most countries but the need is even more visible in Germany, Romania, Greece and Turkey. In Germany “there has been little need for recognition of non-formal and informal learning” (2) and “experiences are limited” (3). In Greece “the profile of validation has been rising on the national policy agenda” since several years (4) but “without any overall framework”. In Turkey the economy is deeply rooted in Enterprises incl. SMEs and the national VET policies and structures are not that much stable and developed like in other areas of Europe (2). As a consequence there are very few experiences with recognition of non-formal achievements.
