The training consists of 160h of training. The target group are second and third grade students of a technical secondary school who have managed to acquire basic knowledge of vocational subjects. In the selection process a group of 40 participants of the project will be selected. The participants of the project will be divided into two equal groups, one of them will take part in the vocational training in May and the other one in September 2016. The first group will be comprised of IT and mechatronics students while the second group will consist of mechanics and mechatronics. Each group will be accompanied by two teachers during the vocational training.

The implemention of the project will affect the local and regional environment and may lead to cooperation with Italian employers in the fields of IT, car mechanics, and mechatronics.
Within the actions taken while the project implementaion the sending organisation will select participants of the vocational training. With a view to assure the best possible preparation of students for the training in Italian companies, the organizers will provide language training (both English and Italian), cultural workshops, and pedagogical training.

The influence of the project will be multifaceted. It will affect the local community, with special reference to the youth, regional, and European community. The prospective effects may concern present and potential vocational secondary school students, who will appreciate the advantages of vocational education over general education. Moreover, the local community will see the benefits of knowledge of foreign languages, educational mobility, and lifelong learning. The community of the hosting organisation will get acquainted with Polish culture and habits. As a result, they will develop a sense of tolerance towards other cultures, customs, and traditions. This may lead to exchange of the cultural and professional experience.
In the long term, the project may be used as a tool of verification of the vocational training system. The experience gained in the project may lead to the introduction of new specialties needed in the European labour market. Moreover, it may lead to the introduction of modern technologies in Polish companies and, consequently, to the increase of their competitiveness in the European market.
