We, as a school system of further education, strongly believe that education starts not only inside classrooms and laboratories, but also with working placements abroad. They are a milestone event in the personal growth of students and, indeed, a unique opportunity of meeting different cultures and a fruitful exchange of ideas among peers. Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe for 2014-2020 (Regulation EU No 1288/2013 of the European Parliament and the Council of 11th December 2013).
Erasmus+ offers the opportunity for providers of vocational education and training (VET) and other organisations active in the field of VET to organise learning mobility activities for VET learners and staff.
– For staff, activities such as job shadowing, courses, and teaching or training assignments can be organised in another organisation abroad,
– For learners, learning periods abroad and participation in skills competitions.
In addition, the applicant organisation can host teachers in training and invite experts from abroad.
