Programa Erasmus +

1. Our International (EU and non-EU) strategy

a) We plan to choose the partners by means of personal contacts and professional visits.

Besides, through institutional support, requesting all the training proposals that the public institutions offers, especially the ones of our Autonomous Government of Andalusia and the Chambers of Commerce.
Furthermore, by means of working together with other educational institutions, being in contact with other vocational schools that already are taking part in these projects and that wish to expand their catalogue of specialities.

b) Geographical area: EU and other neighbour non-EU countries.

c) Most important objectives for the staff: Firstly, working with other Vocational high schools (Short cycles) and secondly, to find companies where the students can do their training. Moreover, to develop cooperation with partners in other EU or non-EU countries.

d) Most important objectives for the students: In order to get their final diploma, students have to enrol the compulsory module FCT which carry out real training in companies. So the main objective is to carry out this module in a foreign country in order to:

  • Improve the professional and linguistic competences and increase their knowledge about the economic and social culture of the host country.
  • Increase their social and intercultural skills and employability.

e) Target groups: Students and staff of Vocational high schools, mainly those of the Superior Cycles of Finance Administration, Working Risks Prevention, IT and Telecommunication Systems

2. Strategy for the organisation and implementation of international (EU and non-EU) cooperation projects.
We will choose the partners working with our social services and personal contacts.
To request our cooperation in Cooperation Projects it will be enough to contact by e-mail our coordinator.

Once we get the application we will go through it to see if it meets our international strategy. If it gets our approval we will advertise it between our students and staff.

We will select our candidates among the participation applicants in the Cooperation Project.
Our measures to support, promote and recognise the participation of our staff and students will be the same as the Mobility Activities of short cycle and we will acknowledge the work made with a detailed certificate.
