Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This project is targeted at 80 students in the 10th, 11th and 12th grades, enrolled in VET initial formation, in the following domains: Electronics and Automation and in Natural Resources and Environmental Quality Protection, with the following qualifications: Technician in Telecommunication, and Technician in Ecology and Environmental Quality Protection, both ensuring romanian level 3 of qualification. The students will undergo practical training with the duration of 2 weeks, in 8 flows of 10 students, in Plymouth, Great Britain and in Rome, Italy, at VET institutions of Tellus College and at the companies with which Tellus collaborates. The project is set within the frame of the Easmus+ priorities: developing basic and transversal abilities: digital, entrepreneurial, multilingual and promoting of coherence between European countries and national transparency in the recognition of the abilities and qualifications acquired through this project. The purpose of this project is that its beneficiaries form professional competences in their domain of qualification, acquire new knowledge, develop skills and qualifications at European standards, all which will facilitate personal and professional development and will increase the chances of integration within national and international labour market. The project was designed to meet the needs of the students in initial VET training, from the Telecommunication and Environmental Protection specialties and its main objectives for the 80 students who benefit from the work-based learning are: -forming specific professional competences for the two specialties in real work conditions and at European companies professional exigency standards -obtaining practical European experiences by working with modern equipment and latest technology in the specific domains -developing linguistic competences in English and Italian languages, focusing especially on technical and professional terms -increasing social and personal abilities (teamwork, self-esteem, personal and professional motivation) -raising employment perspectives in the domain of qualification at graduation -forming an active attitude towards the environment, the entrepreneurship abilities and work place responsibility -promoting intercultural awareness and consolidating European values During the mobility period abroad, the students will work in groups of 2-3 students, for 6 hours daily and will perform practical activities specific for their school level and specialty. This way they will develop those competences, knowledge and abilities agreed upon by the two partners in the Memorandum of Understanding. The students will write daily in a work notebook about the observation charts, the activities carried out, the operating parameters, the verification methods and means, the tools and instruments used to assembly/verify/monitor. At the end of the mobility abroad carried out in real work environment and at professional exigency standards specific for VET institutions and European companies, students will improve professional competences specific for the qualifications mentioned. Thus they will be able to analyse, use and mount different modules and equipment used in Electronics and Telecommunication and also will poses the necessary skills to carry out relevant measurements in environmental protection, becoming more responsible towards the work place. At the same time they will develop skills to use modern equipment and latest generation technologies in their domains of qualification and will improve fluency and understanding of messages and technical instructions in English and Italian languages. Increasing social and personal abilities (team work, self-esteem, personal and professional motivation) will enlarge chances of employment at graduation in the domains of qualification at Romanian and European companies and will also enable them to set up their own business in the targeted domain. The Europass and Tellus 'Preparation for working life' certificates awarded with credits and acknowledged at European level as a result of evaluation and monitoring of the students within the work- based learning during the mobility period abroad will be accompanied by each student’s portfolio. These will illustrate and function as an instrument to measure the impact of the acquired competences, improved linguistic, intercultural, social and personal abilities. The project will also have an impact on the school in terms of raising the quality of technical training, as well as the local, regional and national prestige of the school. Accordingly, more gymnasium graduates will choose our highschool and these domains of qualifications, thus raising the number of students enrolled in initial technical training who will have the chance to participate to European mobilities for future collaboration with European institutions to create new European projects.
