The objective is to bring 29 young, in the 7th grade in fashion design, to do their internship of 3 weeks in a fashion design workshop in Italy, Portugal and Iceland. The students will acquire professional skills in making clothes or accessories in noble materials from local production. The internship abroad will have an impact in their openness to entrepreneurship and their realization that to have success into the fashion sector they need to develop creativity, rigor, dexterity and ability to work sometimes under presser especially during the presentation of the new collections.
The project also provides mobility for 4 trainers of fashion design. They will make an internship of 4 days of job shadowing in Portugal and Iceland with local stylists. By working with stylists in their workshops, the trainers will update their knowledges and their methodologies et will can to communicate them to otehr trainers and to the students.

His team has acquired since 2007 experience and expertise in the management of mobility projects and it will share them with the consortium in order to work together and in the same approach to implement actions for the students in accordance with the Erasmus + quality charter.
Transnational partners - intermediary organizations and host companies - were selected by their experience in hosting foreign students and by the adequacy of the activities proposed with the professional and social skills required by the trainees.
The Learnings outcomes will be recognized and validated at the school by a jury - teachers and employers - and will be incorporated in the final evaluation of the training program for obtaining the certificate of successful completion of 7th year of fashion design.
