With the present application, Aula de Comércio intends to go on working what has been a priority in its Educational Project, namely, to make lifelong learning and mobility a reality to our students, promoting justness, social cohesion and active citizenship, motivating creativity and innovation. Once it is our mission to drive our students and trainers to participate in an Educational Project that enables them to successfully manage a personal and professional path throughout life, embracing the challenges of globalization, one can understand the common goal between Aula de Comércio and Erasmus + specific and operational aims:• To support participants in work placements in other countries of EU and, thus, develop the acquisition and the use of knowledge, skills and qualifications to facilitate personal development, employability and the growth of an entrepreneurial spirit;• To help improve the quality and innovation of our services, pedagogies and practices in the field of education and training through permanent partnerships and cooperation with different companies and organizations throughout Europe, which enlighten us regarding the features and emergent needs of their different national realities;• To increase attractiveness within vocational training, by making these mobility projects an attribute of each year of any course at Aula de Comércio;• To contribute to a greater quality, transparency and recognition of qualifications and competences, by using, among others, the available Europass Documents and the implementation of ECVET system.Thus, at AC, the candidates for the curricular work placements in the scope of Erasmus + Programme are students attending a EU level 4 Courses either on Commerce, Sales, Marketing, Window Dressing, Computing Management, Events Management and Banking and Insurance. With this Application we would like to provide students of the different courses at AC the opportunity for a VET traineeship either in France, Spain or in the United Kingdom, namely:- 38 curricular vocational training placement mobilities of 6 weeks (students from 2nd year classes) - (A1)- 12 vocational training placement mobilities of 6 months (recent graduates); (A2)- 24 curricular vocational training placement mobilities of 14 days hosted at a CFA Stephenson, (a VET school similar to Aula de Comércio, namely in what courses are concerned); (A3)- 3 staff mobility in job shadowing (United Kingdom, France, Spain)Each destiny in activity A1will have one trainer, to make sure the work placement is suitable for the minors. In activity A3 there will be 2 trainers that will accompany the minors and will do job shadowing when not needed by the trainees.This mobility project will answer to the training needs through the accomplishment of either curricular or post curricular work placements in companies of the Trade and Services sector where the participants will develop the activities defined in the Work Placement Guide Document of each course they attend. The translation (in the language of the host country) of this document is previously given to the intermediary partners and the host partners, for them to guarantee that the tasks in the Work Placement Activities Plan can be developed, guaranteeing motivated students and employers/companies and successful work placements.The foreseen accompanying trainers are essential to guarantee that the planned objectives are executed, as well as in a perspective of a growing quality improvement, once they will share their recent apprenticeships with the school community. As results, we intend that the participants in this mobility project, by developing personal, sociocultural, linguistic and professional competences in a different social, cultural and economic context, will show themselves to be competent in carrying out qualified jobs at any country of EU, and, therefore to best contribute to their personal and professional fulfillment.
