The Forrai Secondary School’s educational profile includes: 1) a grammar school programme with English as a specialisation, 2) a vocational secondary school programme specialising in Fashion Design and Decorative Arts and Design, and 3) accredited post-secondary two-year training courses in Decorative Arts and Design, Graphic Design and Fashion Design. 92% of our students attend our training courses specialising in art. Our training courses are practice-orientated and experience- based. Artistic projects feature regularly in the life of the school (e.g. fashion shows and exhibitions. Details are given in our answers to questions in C.1.3. Background and Experience. Further information is available on our website at, from which our Facebook profile may also be accessed). Therefore, the above mentioned project objectives, particularly the development of our international relationships, are of paramount importance. 2. Our partner is the Training to Malta non-profit-association, whose aim is to promote exchange programmes between European countries. They are specialised in vocational mobility programmes. Since 2010 they have launched numerous Leonardo da Vinci and Erasmus+ mobility projects, among which two have been in Hungary. Details are given in our answers to questions in C.2.2. Background and Experience. Project introduction We have developed the following 8 hour/day internship programme, for ten students attending our accredited training courses in Fashion Design and five students attending our accredited training courses in Decorative Arts and Design: 1) For 8 working days, 8 hours per day, our students take part in an arts camp. In this camp our students can become acquainted with the artistic variety and culture of Malta. They study and analyse its history of art, archaeology and contemporary art. They visit museums and exhibitions, take part in arts events, with some defined task in every case. This is being realised due to the professional programme developed in advance, which can be found enclosed as the working plan of the arts camp. The arts camp is managed by our art teacher, who accompanies the group, but is supported by our partner, Training to Malta, whose attends the camp. 2) For 7 working days, 8 hours per day, at locations in Malta (Valletta, Sliema, St. Julians) our students majoring in Fashion Design and Decorative Arts and Design work for local fashion companies. Details of the internship are provided in the internship working plan enclosed. Intended outcomes • Our international relationships will be broadened and may extend to our existing relationships. • During the internship, our students’ professional, personal, interpersonal and methodological competences will significantly improve. (See F.1. Learning outcomes.) This will influence the development of our other students’ competences. • The experience and information acquired may enable us to develop our arts education methodology, to organise and develop teaching and learning on the basis of our international experience, to re-evaluate our curricula, to modify the technological processes in our student workshops and to realise developments. Intended effects: Short-term effects: • our international relationships will broaden and be reinforced, and new contacts will be established • we will establish stronger professil relationships with partner schools and professional associations in Hungary • the motivation of our students and teachers will be improved • professional standards will improve • students and parents alike will develop more respect for the school Long-term effects: • our school will become more well-known and its reputation will grow • we will admit more motivated and highly skilled students • working relationships and collaboration between teachers will be enhanced • there will be higher levels of innovation and a greater emphasis on uniqueness besides which art studies will be more effectively placed in a multicultural environment.
