The project is based on the partnership between Obrtna tehnička škola Split, Croatia and company euroMind and school SAFA from Sevilla, Spain and RBZ from Kiel, Germany, as well. Obrtna tehnička škola has participated before in mobility projects: Leonardo da Vinci mobility (three times in partnership with the vocational school of Meaux in France, and once with the company Vitalis from Germany) and Erasmus+ 2004. KA1 mobility in partnership with company Your International Training from Cork, Ireland. We used the experiences gained in these mobility projects to prepare the application for new mobility project.Specific goals of this mobility project are incorporated into the European educational priorities and strategies for vocational education and refer to specific needs of participants. These are: familiarization with new equipment and technologies in the field, exploring different organization of work through job training at companies /school workshops, exploring the cultural and historical heritage of the host country, the improvement of social and communication skills, development and improvement of transversal skills: critical thinking, taking initiative, problem solving and participation in teamwork, as well as popularization of craft.
Our participants of mobility in Kiel, Germany are fifteen selected students educating for the professions in the area of electrical engineering: 10 car electricians, electrical mechanic and 4 electricians. Selected professors of the practical group of subjects accompanied them. The mobility has lasted for two weeks: from November, 8 till November,21 2015.
The participants of mobility in Sevilla, Spain are fifteen selected students educating for the professions in the area of mechanical engineering: 8 heating and air conditioning installers and 7 plumbers. Selected professors of the practical group of subjects accompanied them. The mobility has lasted for two weeks; from March,6 till March,19 2016.
All the students had pre- requisite cultural, linguistic, pedagogical and informatics preparation for mobility, within which the school had additional English, History, Art history, Geography and IT lessons, while the school psychologist took part in pedagogical preparation. Implementation of mobility project includes: school project team (school principal, coordinator of practical training and leader - coordinator of the project ), teachers-companions who participated in previous projects, English teacher, History teacher, teacher of Fine arts, Geography teacher and IT teacher.
During the mobility, students carried out practical training in specialized companies/ school workshops. Their work was constantly supervised and monitored by the teachers and experts from the workshops. Teachers - companions , who are also students' mentors and monitor their progress in craft workshops, where they perform practical training , had the opportunity to visit the host companies and become familiar with their structure and organization.
At the end of this mobility, students received certificates from school and partner institution, as well as the Europass Mobility document.
Participation in this mobility project encouraged development of personal and professional skills of the participants. Advancing the professional level, along with prosperity on personal level, contributes to better employability and professional competitiveness in the labor market. Participating in mobility, teachers-companions enhanced their professional experience and competence, as well as improved language and communication skills. Participation in this project has positive effect and creates quality experience for all teachers involved in the project (school project team, teachers who participate in the preparation of participants).
After completion of the mobility school conducted the project evaluation, dissemination of results at the level of institutions and also on the local/regional/national/international level. Students- participants fulfilled their final reports as well as the school.
