As it is previously mentioned, one of the main objectives of this project for our school is to establish a solid cooperation with European Institutions in the field of VET. Upon meeting the objectives of this project an important result would be the improvement of qualification of teaching personnel as well as the establishment of processes regarding validation of experience gained during learning (for students) and teaching (for educators) periods in another country.Students by improving their language skills will improve their learning performance; upgrading students’ awareness of the European Union values and European Mobility projects will eventually upgrade the students' intercultural awareness and finally increase their self-esteem.Educators in the future would support the promotion of such mobility actions; upgrading their competences in teaching and training would be another great value and finally they would try to implement different systems, strategies and policies in education.
