“EUROPEAN WORK EXPERIENCE IV” is a pioneer project in Spain consisting of the transnational mobility of students. This project covers the provinces of Alicante and Valencia, in the Valencian Community. The economic sector where our students are going to have work opportunities is the active Tourism. The coast of the Valencian Community is crowded and it has reached its peak. This is the main economic engine of the Community but tourism is changing, it demands new offers, it needs the contact with nature, it wants to be active and there it is where the main aim of the project lies, the opening of the inner active tourism sector. The Valencian Community is much more than coast and sea, it is surrounded by natural landscapes, well preserved ecosystems, accessible mountains, countless paths and routes, etc. The majority educational centres of our Community offering the Professional Family of Physical Activity in their schools have joined one partnership to create EWE IV (Alicante province:IES Haygón from San Vicente del Raspeig, IES 8 de Marzo from Alicante, IES Historiador Chabàs from Denia, IES Montserrat Roig from Elche, IES Mare Nostrum from Torrevieja, IES Monastil from Elda, International School Lope de Vega from Benidorm, IES La Creueta from Onil. Valencia Province: Colegio Mas Camarena of Paterna, Colegio Sagrada Familia from Valencia, IESMolí del Sol from Mislata,IES Consellería from valencia,IES Guadassuar from Guadassuar, IES Vallada from Vallada). Moreover, due to the experience obtained from the former projects, two more Professional Families have joined, being a two members of the project (Alicante province: IES La Foia from Ibi and CIPFP Batoi from Alcoy) with the Professional Family of Management Administration. The idea comes up because we want to develop this growing offer of tourism in the province, and thereby, to create new quality enterprises with high qualified workers, both linguistically and technically speaking. It is a must for these new companies in order to be successful that their employees can communicate in a foreign language and that is the reason why we are going to send within this new project, EWE IV, 85 participants to Ireland, North Ireland (UK) and France, 2 places are disabled (60 to Ireland, 10 to North Ireland (UK) and 15 to France) in just one flow. The election of these two countries is based on their tradition in this type of economic activity, on the high quality of the companies of the sector and on their language (French or English). 75 of the participants belong to the Formative Cycle of Technician of Physical Activities in the Natural Environment and the other 10 left belong to the Formative Cycle of Technician in Management Administration. We have a large number of companies in which these students will carry out their training period in workplaces (FCT) for 3 months. The completion of this training will lead them to obtain their certificate of Technician, apart from the other EUROPASS certificates that will credit them with the competences acquired during their training experience. We intend that productive ties can be established among the participants so as to create future enterprises in the active tourism sector in the provinces of Alicante and Valencia since the technical and the administrative part are present in any company as a whole. All the development of the project will be coordinated by a Management committee comprising representatives internationalization Coordinators of every school who will ensure that the outcome of the project is positive. The coordination of all the actions and teamwork makes EWE IV a very clear example of how to carry out a successful idea working together. For all this, it is necessary to work with quality protocols which have been implemented project after project. In the short and long term, we intend to increase and to make employment for our youths better in the companies of the active tourism sector and in that way, to acquire the desirable technical competences, thus improving the skill of communicating in a foreign language in order to be able to access to more clients. We will foster “Entrepreneurship” and in the short and long run new companies will be created thanks to the LEARNING BY DOING acquired in their training period in workplaces. The benefit resulted from this will be shown in a new productive tissue inside a sustainable development framework which will make the Valencian Comunity a clear example of innovation as a means of getting out of the crisis.
