Start date: Sep 1, 2015, End date: Aug 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This project was proposed as an additional element in an ambitious plan, designed by our School, for internationalization and transnational cooperation into the framework of Erasmus + program. The project was designed for young students from our school from 17 to 25 years old, which after high school, was studying their Vocational Training Medium Grades on Vocational fields: " Electrical and Electronics " and " Building and Civil Works ". The project sought that students come into contact with new techniques and technologies on vocational areas they was studying, very different from what they can find in the Canary Islands, where the industrial sector is rather limited. The main objective of the project was that students check and assume the reality of the European Working Market to which they belong, and they were able to remove limitations and open horizons at cultural, social and professional level. That was a difficult task for these students, taking into account they had an additional limitation, living on an island and far way from Europe. The chosen way was immersion in the host country: Italy. Students joined the Italian city Padova for 10 weeks, in order to work on the profession in companies which they had been trained at school, and making fully autonomous life to help/force them to develop by themselves in a country with a different language and culture of their own. We took into account, of course, the need of a preliminary stage for preparation of participants and a careful selection of them, to ensure the success of this experience and the whole project. As a result of this experience , these young people should broaden their technical and professional competence in their field of work and more, beyond the area of the island where they live, or their country. For the development of the mobile phase , we had several companies (host partners) in which our students developed their period of traineeships. About these partners, we remark absolute willingness to adapt to the proposed training program for each participant, and the success of our experience in previous mobility projects with them. On the other hand, our intermediary partners CO.EUR and Eurotraining are specialized in the implementation of such projects and the organization of student mobilities. All them, host and intermediary partners, have understood our project idea and they have collaborated in organizing all kinds of details to ensure the success of mobility and project, it took place during ten weeks in the second quarter of 2015. The start of the mobility phase of the project date was April 4, 2016, coinciding with the development of professional module of traineeships at school. It was just one of the main objectives of this project, work activity that participants made during their stay in Italy, equates as required traineeships to students at the end of their studies, before graduation. Through this project, we invited our students ( young technicians in Electrical and Telecommunications installations, and Construction and Reforms ) to join the European reality , to open their minds and integrate into a different society, to know how to work beyond their island and their country , to apply in companies with different methods and technologies than they studied in classes and workshops, to be restless entrepreneurs and innovators , to trust their own abilities and possibilities. We invited them to BUILD and INSTALL EUROPE and we believe that we got it..
