The Consortium that we present today has been promoted at a local level by Almendralejo Town Hall together with the following Vocational Schools of this town: IES Carolina Coronado, IES Santiago Apostol and IES Arroyo Harnina. This proposal is the result of our concern for the actual situtation of our youngsters, either students or recent graduates, who face a difficult working situation increased for the lack of businesses in our town. To respond to this reality, our consortium has created a network of partner organisations and receiving companies who will participate in this project offering our young people the possibility to complete a qualifying training period in different countries of Euope. These countries are: Ireland, Italy, Portugal and United Kingdom. This multiprofessional project is designed to meet the educational needs of 50 youngsters who are actually studying in any of the participating vocational centres and recent graduates as well.
