Pupils learn engineering skills abroad.

PUPILS from a Birmingham school spent two weeks in Austria on engineering work placements.

The 10 students from Aston University Engineering Academy in Gosta Green visited Modling thanks to funding from the European Commission's lifelong learning programme.

The 17 to 19-year-olds spent their days working and enjoyed cultural excursions and sporting activities during the evenings and weekends along with pupils from partner school HTL Modling.

A school spokesperson said: "For some students it was their first time abroad but they coped well.

"During the placement they learned hands-on engineering skills, like welding and forging, and the importance of punctuality and the Austrian working culture."
