The project is developed in a Secondary School with deep roots in vocational training, which is considered a reference center in the region. The center is located in a rural area whose economic activity is based on agriculture, services and construction sectors. The economy of the region has been hard hit by the economic crisis, which is still immersed. This circumstance makes the vast majority of our students this project is an opportunity to travel and to add value to their studies, as would otherwise be impossible to make an experience like this.
This is the third year our center involved in the project, although it is the first time that has been made mobilities as the two preceding years was not possible to develop them, not for lack of interest on our part but by lack of cooperation from companies in the first case and lack of commitment of the host company in the second.
This year, finally, there have been two successful granted mobilities.
