Drottning Blanka Upper Secondary Schools are part of AcadeMedia, which is Northern Europe’s largest educational company. We are active throughout the education chain: preschool, elementary school, upper secondary school/high school and adult education. More information can be found at: www.academedia.se.
Do you want an education in an international context? When you choose to enroll at a Drottning Blanka School, you’ll receive unique opportunities to broaden your horizons.
Also, if you’ve chosen a vocational programme, you receive the opportunity to do work based learning abroad. For example, in Limerick, Valletta, Milano, Skopje, Córdoba, India or South Africa.
After your 3 years with us, you’ll be prepared, dedicated and certified to enter other educations and job markets outside of Sweden!
Below there’s a film that explains the term “internationalisation” and what it means to us at Drottning Blanka and how we work with it each year. Our internationalisation plan goes beyond what you receive in your chosen studies.
A 3-year Journey – A 1000 possibilities!
Year 1 - personal commitment
During your 1st year you’ll get an introduction of the theoretical basics. You’ll learn more about the EU, the UN Global Goals 2030 and how you can contribute to a better world.
Examples of what we do in year 1: • Focus on you and your role in becoming a global citizen • Study UN Global Goals • Teach you what it means to be an EU citizen Meet international organisations, e.g. Amnesty, the Red Cross
Year 2 - local commitment
In the next step, we’ll broaden your perspectives by supporting your participation in an international school project, which might take place in either Sweden or abroad.
Examples of what we do in year 2: • Write an international CV (Europass) • Offer work-based learning abroad (if you study a vocational programme) • Participate in an international project in either Sweden or abroad
Year 3 - global commitment
This year you’ll meet many interesting people from different cultures. You’ll also strengthen your ability to interact and communicate with people from other countries.
Examples of what we do in year 3: • Offer work-based learning abroad, 3 weeks to 3 months (if you’re in a vocational programme) • Strengthen your international network • Define your professional competences
You’ll have for example:
– An international network
