The consortium of schools of economiecs (Celje School of Economics, Grammar School Celje - Center, Murska Sobota School of Economics, Secondary School of Economics Maribor, Secondary School Slovenj Gradec and Muta, Secondary School of Economics Ljubljana, Grammar School of Economics and Secondary School Radovljica, Secondary School Jesenice, Secondary School of Business and Economics Koper, Novo mesto School of Economics) has formed partnership with partners in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Spain, Germany, Portugal and Malta for the purpose of collaborating in the mobility project for our secondary school students and teachers from seven of our regions that is taking place from June 2016 until June 2017. We are aiming at organising work placements for 338 of our secondary vocational and technical school students as well as those of grammar school of economics for a period of three to four weeks depending on their programme. The duration of their work placements has been adjusted to their curricula. All partners are aiming at enabling our participants to get an excellent mobility experience, help them upgrade their speaking abilities in English or teach them the basics of Spanish/Portuguese, which means granting their wish. We are going to work hard to broaden their horizons to such an extent so that foreign languages will no longer be a problem but a challenge, we would like them to understand the notion of multicultural existence and be able to live among and with different kinds of people, we want to encourage the use of their professional skills in foreign work environment and gain new professional skills, including soft skills which are becoming increasingly sought after by employers. It is necessary they become aware of the importance of lifelong learning and training as Europe offers excellent opportunites for international cooperation, networking and exchange of expertise. For the majority of our students it will be an all-first time experience: the first flight, for the first time away from their parents for such a long time and so far away from home but all that has so far immensely contributed to their strengthened self-confidence. Teacher training forms an important part of the planned mobility in the two fields that are of utmost importance for all schools of economics: online marketing and start-ups. The new knowledge will lead us to updating of our curricula and better quality education which means we will keep up with the demands of modern society.The project is of utmost importance for all partner schools as mobility activities raise our international profile and attract a greater number of students who want to enrol in our schools. At the same time it provides invaluable new experiences for all of us. We are aiming at increasing the number of mobilities in comparison to previous years, improve the students' openness and independence. At the same time we want to strengthen our collaboration with foreign partners and keep improving our mobility practice by learning also from their rich experience. Mobility is an added value to our educational programmes and it diversifies everyday activities in all our partner schools be it for students or teachers.
