Da Vinci has a new organsational structure, with bigger sectors where courses are clustered.Each sector has to present its plan where international activities have to be part, this has to result that teams have their plans with activities. The goal is to get a curriculum that has an International context. This is a process that takes time, not because people do not want this but the pressure on the colleaguas is high already. The contact persons that have a position in the domains and the international coordinator are working on this action which we see as really important. But with the new structure of the qualifications there are chances to renew thing. Together with a number of colleges we are working on the keuzedeel 'Internationalisering'.In this mobility project there we apply for teachers, working life representatives and students. The goal is to improve the skills and competences of the participants. To help students to become skilled labourors, to give teachers the opportunities to see how courses are set up in another country, to learn from methods used abroad and to improve the curriculum. International contacts can give a lot of energy (although most of the times they are very intens), and are seen as very special (like a present) in the life of a teacher.By combining school staff and working life representatives there will be a fruitful exchange of ideas, of better understanding and this will help to improve the quality of the courses in the College.There is a policy plan for a longer period in which we decribe plans for the future. The plan of Da Vinci College will be added to this document. In the strategic plans of Da Vinci College there is a goal for student mobility.On Da Vinci college there is a platform for contactpersons from all the different domains who meet 6 times a year to discuss new policy, practical issues concerning Mobility or projects. This platform is very important because the participants have to translate the ideas to the teams and students. The participants in this platform support the students in all the steps that are needed to go abroad, information, preparation, practical issues, tutoring, validation and dissemination.There a a few new activities for us this year, we hope to be part in a pop up project in Malaga and start with groups of 1st year Health Care students going to Berlin for a program with cultural aspects and job orientation.And also we are working on a project with the lower level students.So the coming years seem to become interesting in the way that the outcomes for the participants will be deeper and of even more value, and that international thinking and working will sink in the organzation.
