MEETING, the new Erasmus + project ROC Mondriaan, is the follow-up of project MEE. MEETING stands for Mondrian European Experience Three, International Natural Gathering: to meet, to come together, to learn from each other. MEETING has expanded the number of mobilities, and more importantly, more schools are connected. Internationalization is a priority at ROC Mondriaan!ROC Mondriaan (1.950 employees) is the VET Institution in the The Hague region which offers vocational and adult education to approximately 21.000 students.

The program of all individual training / study trips is compiled based on the learning needs of the employee and / or training.All participants will have an unforgettable experience: an experience abroad deepens knowledge and provides new insights and inspiration. The internship contributes to the autonomy, self-reliance and personal responsibility of students and employees. They acquire a better knowledge of a foreign language, move in a completely different context than they’re used to and therefore it will deliver a wealth of experience and a better perspective on the labor market. Together with our partners we are building a European network for proper placement and knowledge exchange. The internships abroad are means to embed Internationalization in a structural way. It will connect the international labor market and is a way to present the schools attractively. The Hague region has a large international business field and with the structural embedding of our internationalization policy, we are an interesting partner for the regional labor market.
