They will attend the educational trips aimed at getting to know specifics of culture of Spain. Teachers will have the opportunity to become familiar with the teaching methods in Spanish schools and with the methods used in the professional arts organizations and foreign ensembles. The acquired knowledge can be used to improve their teaching praxis, and to prepare our graduates in accordance to the requirements of the European market. Our partners will gain the knowledge about the organization of the Slovak education, of its methods and goals.

This will contribute to the dissemination of Slovak culture and its valuation in the European Union.
