SeVET - Sevilla para la Formación Profesional en Europa

“SeVET – Seville for the Vocational Training in Europe” was born after a publicity campaign that ONECO aimed at Intermediate Vocational Training Schools in the Province of Seville, to let them know the advantages of Mobility Programmes for learners, KA102. Due to the interest shown by several Educational Centers, a Consortium was formed, in which ONECO was the applying entity, and the Schools were the sending organizations. The Association was finally made up by ONECO, Secondary Schools Alcaria, Miguel de Mañara, Miguel de, Cervantes, Gerena and Vistazul and the Authorized Center for Sports Education, Carlos Espigares.
All SeVET sending partners were in agreement of the importance of the internationalization of their education and of the realization of internships which could increase the value of their School’s theoretical training. For this purpose a work group was created, composed of by one tutor from each school and the programme coordinator in ONECO, as beneficiary institution.
SeVET participants had to be young students from Seville Province, aged between 18 and 35 years old, studying their last year, counting on these internships abroad as part of their VET module, or recent graduates who had obtained their degree within the 12 months prior to the last days of the mobility. Preference was given to those candidates who didn't have previous experience in their professional sector.
The professional sectors included in the proposal were:
- Horse riding
- Microcomputer systems and networks
The number of scholarships awarded, 7, was much lower than requested, so, after a meeting with the members of the Consortium, it was decided that, taking into account the profiles of the participants, all the candidates would be send to the same destination: Portugal, and the grants would be distributed, by Schools, in the following way:
- IES Alcaria - 2 internships
- C.A.E.D Carlos Espigares - 2 internships
- I.E.S. Miguel de Mañara - 1 internship
- I.E.S. Miguel de Cervantes - 1 internship
- IES Gerena - 1 internship
I.E.S. Vistazul, considering the low number of grants approved, in favour of other members of the Consortium, resigned to send students with the SeVET programme, since they had other similar scholarships provided by a local public entity.
7 selected participants were able to enjoy an initiation course in Portuguese and 83 days of internships in host organizations in their respective professional areas.
As a result of the wonderful experience for all parties involved in this project, schools involved in SeVET have participated in successive Erasmus + mobility KA102 calls, something that seems to ensure the internationalization of the institutions of the Consortium.
