Higher education student and staff mobility project
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: Sep 30, 2016
2015 project corresponds to the international strategy of Institut de Genech and aims at facilitating the mobility of the staff and the students from the higher Education Department of our school.
Thanks to this program, 4 HND students did a 2 months'placement in Poland, Romania and Ireland, one Irish professional held conferences in our school and 2 teachers attended training courses in Malta. The goals fixed in June 2015 in the 2015/2016 agreement have been reached.
The students who did their placements abroad study Horticulture, Plant production and farming and management in our school. They were very pleased of their work experience that enabled them to gain new technical knowledges, to discover a new country, a different culture and another way of working and living.
Thanks to the coming of an Irish expert in farming in our school, our students discovered farming in Ireland, its specifities and compared it to the French Agriculture. They also discussed about the chemicals and the machinery used, compared yields, costs of production and talked about Irish farms organisation.
This professional encouraged them to do a work placement in Ireland and facilitated our work (At the end of the school year, 69 students had done a placement abroad).
2 teachers went to Malta and met our partner, MCAST. They discovered the school, the organisation and their way of teaching. Furthermore, they visited the country and learned a lot about its economy,its history and Maltese culture. This trip enabled them to meet teachers and professionals who could take in a near future our students as trainees.
