In line with the objectives of the Europe2020 Strategy and ET2020, through "AGROVEGA+", the consortium, led by the Lora del Rio Council, aims to improve the quality of education and vocational training, giving a European dimension to the educational paths and thus providing the young participants the opportunity to test and improve their skills: professionalism in the specific areas of vocational education (agricultural, agro-industrial, environmental sectors, administration, informatics and electricity), cultural knowledge and linguistic preparation. This general objective, in line with the ET2020 strategy is pursued through a mobility experience that consists of a learning mobility internship abroad of 13 weeks for 54 students/learners recent graduates from the 3 participating VET schools. The training programme includes an internship in selected companies in the agricultural, Managemente, Informatic, electricty and electronic , agro-industrial and environmental fields, to acquire knowledge and skills within the sectors and compare the various professional techniques, and activities aimed at the inclusion and integration in the context and for the improvement of language skills and to better know the culture of the hosting country. The main expected results from the project include: the rise of the personal and professional skills of the participants and the promotion of key competencies related to the real exercise of active citizenship; increasing the employment potential of the participants, the introduction of innovative training methods as a complement to existing practices and pathways and the improvement of the educational level of technical and vocational schools, the development of relations between the transnational partners and the promotion of processes of cooperation and exchange of good practices between the partners involved, with a significant impact in improving the educational and vocational guidance.The construction of a permanent network of transnational public-institutional organisations and not only, therefore, is one of the main objectives of the project and allows the exchange of experiences and best practices at various levels (technical excellence, best practices in educational policies and governance of the system). The Consortium, with this proposal, therefore, aims to give momentum to the internationalization of institutional relations and cooperation at European level. The opportunities for economic and social growth cannot be separated from the desire to create strong interdependence and synergy between educational and training institutions and strong partnerships with local and foreign business realities.The project is, besides, implemented in an European context considering the European priority and thematic approached such as "ECVET for transparency and recognition of learning outcomes and qualifications". The development of ECVET began in 2002 after the Copenhagen Process emphasizing the need for a credit transfer system for VET. "AGROVEGA+" is a project based on the concrete responses to the questions of developing ECVET in the European member States and corresponding to the 2009 EU Recommendations on the establishment of the European Credit system for VET, although in Spain dosn't work yet wew will follow the procedures like MOU, learning agreement, etc. The project works in particular to realise an European area for Lifelong Learning in the agricultural, agro-industrial, auxiliar sector and environmental sectors.The whole activities are implemented by regarding a strong European perspective which is reflected in all project activities and results. The project aims to increase the knowledge of ECVET and its technical specifications and ensuring that the added value of ECVET is understood and perceived all over Europe.
