During a two-week stay the students of the fourth form realized their compulsory practice simultaniously in institutions comparable to the equivalents of Slovak practice places in Great Britain and the Czech Republic in two activities. During the practice all the innovative observations were reported in a student´s daily report document. This practice was accepted by the school management as a proper compulsory practice and was realized in the scheduled time. Consequently, students applied their newly gained knowledge and innovations in the practical part of vocational maturita exam, i.e. at maturita exam project presentations focusing on quality improvement and innovations application in their future profession. Besides the above-mentioned maturita exam presentations the mobility participants carried out presentations using their records and daily report documents, by means of which they could disseminate all the innovative methods, procedures and forms to other students in VET in particular branches.
