The EUROPEAN DEVELOPMENT PLAN of the Consortium stands as a strategic document and framework for action.2.- PROJECT OBJECTIVES AND PROFILES OF PARTICIPANTS2.1. – OFFER 67 MOBILITIES FOR VET STUDENTS AND RECENT GRADUATES Internships in European companies for 90 days: ITALY 46, UK 4, CZECH REPUBLIC 9 AND PORTUGAL 8).2.2 Develop training of personnel abroad (Job shadowing)18 Mobilities of 5 days duration in ITALY (5), FINLAND (5), UK (4), PORTUGAL (2) CZECH REPUBLIC (2) with the participation of a total of 18 teachers and principals of VET schools.

The most requested DESTINATION for this profile is ITALY.3.- METHODOLOGY : Joint project management and optimization of the quality of their activities through synergies . The participation of a company with extensive experience in the field of mobility projects will help to optimize the management and administration of the Project. We collaborate with European partners, whose main task is to contribute to create a perfect harmony between the profiles of the participants and the activities to develop in the host institutions (KEY ACTIVITY). The involvement of partners adds value to the logistical and organizational blueprint.4. - ACTIVITIES AND SCHEDULEPREVIOUS STAGE: Creation of Consortium, Working Definition of equipment and Erasmus Committee.

It is estimated that the Consortium comes into contact with more than 65 European partners.5.4 IMPACT ON EDUCATIONAL COMMUNITY: It is expected that the number of young people interested in participating in mobility experiences is growing.6. DISSEMINATION AND COMMUNICATION: Implementation of the COMMUNICATION PLAN developed by the Erasmus Committee. KEY ACTIVITY since its effectiveness depends on optimizing the impact of project activities.7. LONG-TERM BENEFITS. SUSTAINABILITY: Expected effects on students and recent graduates go beyond the strict implementation period (monitoring of students at two months and at one year later to the end of the stay). The assessments carried out on the ERASMUS + experience will encourage other young people to participate in mobility projects. The quality of training rise with staff participation in working groups with other European teachers.
