The quality of preparation of Higher Education students for their professional career and the quality of the provided medical services highly depend on communication skills. HELP will deal with this challenge in a new and more holistic way combining motivating, practice-related foreign language training with substantial intercultural preparation.
HELP is a modular, media supported training programme. It is based on CEFR standards. HELP satisfies demands of learner-centred formal and informal learning for the English levels B1/B2. As an innovative element, the learning programme promotes the development of intercultural competences for Higher Education students and professionals in the workplace.
HELP has a high impact on learning in Higher Education in this specific field because it overcomes the patchwork of educational materials and approaches which has been used in many organisations of Higher Education for English training in healthcare. The training programme has a strictly innovative approach in line with latest developments concerning the professional content and requirements for the European workplace and taking up potentials from media support for learning with mobile devices, connecting education and workplace.
