This Project is a follow up to the OSCUS DUAL project that was approved in the last Leonardo da Vinci call of proposal, whose aim is to help our students differentiating their curriculum which is essential when entering the labour market today.
The main objective of this Project has been to facilitate that our students enter the labor market and to create a professional network at a European level to improve the quality of education and training amongst our students.
40 students of the following educational fields have been involved:
- Administration, Hairdressing and hair cosmetics, Nursing Assistants, Personal image and aesthetics , Characterization, Pharmacy and Parapharmacy, Home Care Assistants.
These students had previously completed a theoretical training period in our center and have completed now with this training period on other organizations from different countries of the EU, and more specifically in Italy, Portugal, France, Ireland and Malta.
Mobilities have been divided into 3 flows: From March to June 2015, from September to December 2015 and from March to June 2016. The mobility period has lasted for 90 days, supplemented with a language course that was done before departure.
These have been the activities completed by each flow:
1) First phase: Before departure: Opening and Information day, encouraging students to participate in the program, selecting candidates, looking for companies in destination countries according to candidates profiles, language course and cultural preparation, , defining training agreements, writing training agreements, cv, mobility logistics
2) Second phase: Mobility: Information meeting, departure to destinations, students follow up, solving eventual problems and incidents.
3) Third phase: Evaluation and dissemination of project results: Meeting with participants once they come back to analyze results and impact, labour market insertion, evaluate program as a whole, writing a quality report and financial justification, closing day, and dissemination of results
The results of this program have been:
For the students: gaining professional competences that are specific to their labour sector, completing a fist professional experience, acquiring a versatile professional profile with the capacity to adapt to the specific needs of each enterprise, developing language and cultural skills, knowing and using different applications and new technologies in the working environment, getting to know production and organization systems, increasing the quality of their education and training to be more competitive, obtaining the EUROPASS, differentiating their cv in order to have more chances when entering the labour market, obtaining the corresponding academic degree.
