Higher education student and staff mobility project
Start date: Jun 1, 2014,
End date: May 31, 2016
The aim of the Erasmus + project for EC Piramida Maribor was a wish to continue with international cooperation with various colleges and other institutions outside our borders. During the project we, among other things, exchanged experiences, promoted the healthy lifestyle, learnt about other cultures and increased the tolerance among them, brought new to ideas to the field of food and we improved the quality of our education. We successfully increased the interest in different types of mobility - students and employees. Within the framework of the Erasmus + 2014-2020 we signed three new agreements on mutual cooperation with higher vocational colleges or secondary schools with similar training programs and restored all the agreements that we had been under the previous Erasmus project.
For the year 2014 we contracted within the Vocational College to fund one student and six staff mobility placements. A call for the implementation of mobility was prepared in accordance with the provisions of the ECHE Charter and EPS and publicly announced. Mobility Project was also constantly promoted. All candidates had the same opportunities. We prepared a predetermined selection criteria in case of an excessive number of requests. Candidates who were selected had to have a prior leaving signed agreement for mobility.
Participants were prepared for mobility through various activities (cooperation during the visit of foreign lecturers, individual interviews with the coordinator, consulting and assistance in mobility preparation). We advised and assisted the participants in mobility from other countries who came to our institution as well.
After completing the mobility, and getting a certificate of completion of mobility, students got also recognized practical training for the second year and by 13 credit points. Staff mobility was recognized as participation in education.
We carried out all six cases of staff mobility (all for the purpose of training), student mobility from objective reasons was not completely carried out. However, two of our students passed a placement within the Community of vocational colleges.
After the completion of the mobility of students they presented their experiences in workshops for the presentation of mobility and employees at the lecturers' assembly. When analyzing the staff reports, we found that everyone was most pleased with examples of good practice and the social, cultural and linguistic competencies they have acquired during the mobility.
