Detailed schedule of stay in Spain, time of professional practices, accommodation and rules of signing required documents were agreed by email. The programs of professional practices prepared with agreement of international partners include basic needs of students which are connected with gaining qualifications. Those programs are compatible with core curriculum and include crucial information for realization of main goals, which are to gain success by the student and be useful in the future work. Spanish partners are formally competent to evaluate effects of students’ work which enables official certification. This will allow to transfer skills, competence and knowledge gained abroad to their own country and mark professional practice after complementing the lacking number of hours. During the internship participants will be able to do tasks connected with their occupation which they could not do in Poland.

The participants of the project will be acquainted with the main goal of the program Erasmus + KA1, which is assurance of easier acknowledgement of skills and qualifications in each of the European countries and abroad. This will enable quick reactions to new phenomenon such as internationalisation of education, more common use of digital educational tools and support of creating flexible paths of education complement with the needs and goals of people learning all their lives.
