The project “European Mobilities concerning vocational training”, -which Economic College “PartenieCosma” Oradea acceses- has at the base of it the awareness of the idea of lifelong learning, training and more than that, the idea of the necessity of deepening theoretical knowledge through practical instruction. On the other hand, the project team acknowledges the importance of developing the European dimension of education by accessing this kind of projects whose main beneficiaries are the students of our school. Thus, this project becomes another tool in the hands of our school teachers to support students so that they can find other ways of responding to the challenges of contemporary world. Moreover, the idea of the project was brought to life in the context of the lack of proper space for vocational training. The building that is going to house such a space is still under construction. In this context, by the means of the project “European Mobilities concerning vocational training” we propose to offer our students a budget of extra time for vocational training in countries from Europe, countries that have a long history in tourism and gastronomy. In this way students are going to acquire new skills and abilities to their professional profile in line with the demands of European labour market. The project is taking place throughout the course of two school years: 2016/2017, 2017/2018. The project is addressed to a number of 35 students of Xth form of our school, level of qualification 3, Tourism and Food specialization. The students are going to be male and female teenagers of 16-17 years old, coming both from the town of Oradea and from the countryside: 40% of our students are from the villages of Bihor county, but also Sălaj and Satu-Mare. These students are going to benefit from three weeks of vocational trining at economic agents in Europe Union countries, following this timeline: Flux no 1: France 29th of May – 18th of June 2017 Flux no 2: England 5th of June – 27th of June 2017 Flux no 3: Spain 28th of August – 19th of September 2017 Flux no 4: Italy 2nd of July – 24th of July 2018 Flux no 5: Portugal 20th of August – 11th of September 2018 The seven students of each flux are going to be accompanied by one teacher.
