The planned project fits perfectly into the School Strategic Development Plan and complements a continuation of an ongoing Erasmus plus, and just completed Leonardo da Vinci mobility projects . It is also going to be a preparation for the planned strategic partnership in the field of education, training and youth, which we intend to submit with the partner school .
We are going to continue VET mobility projects and include our students from basic professional classes in them as well.
Expected outputs of the project is modification of :

Cooperation with the partner school, in addition to mobility, will also include video conferencing and eTwinning action. This will allow teachers to meet colleagues from another EU country, to discuss similarities and cultural differences, and to build a basis for future cooperation. German school will apply a similar project in its National Agency, so there is a chance to visit them in our school.
