“Apprenticeship abroad as the key to a professional career” is a project aimed at giving the participants an opportunity to achieve success in their professional development and raising the level of teaching in our school. Taking part in the apprenticeship provides a chance to acquire knowledge, skills and professional qualifications, enhance the perspectives for better employment in both domestic and European job markets, and to boost the personal development of the students and the teachers. A crucial aim is to increase the intercultural awareness and understanding of different cultures and countries by the project participants and to strengthen the feeling of citizenship and European identity.The direct participants are a group of 52 students from profiles: ICT, electronics, geodesy and technology of renewable energy sources who will take part in the project as a part of their compulsory professional practice, 8 teachers whose role will be to supervise the trainees and 6 vocational teachers, who will undergo specialist professional training. The indirect participants are the whole school and the local community.20 ICT students will go for two-week training in Great Britain. The apprenticeship will take place in Plymouth in the centre of the vocational education Tellus Group. The students will do tasks connected with designing and creating local computer networks as well as managing the data communication networks.16 students from the geodesy profile will do a two-week apprenticeship in Spain. The host organisation will be EuroMind. The students will carry out their practice under the supervision of a surveyor from the company Iniciativas el Condado. As part of the apprenticeship the students will perform measurements in the field and then they will do the calculations in AutoCAD programme.

English will be the basic language of communication.

It will be organised by euroMind, a company with huge experience in professional training that cooperates with numerous vocational schools. The teachers will familiarise themselves with the educational system in Spain, especially with its vocational part, they will get to know the ECVET system tools, and visit vocational training facilities.Teachers will exchange their experience with their Spanish counterparts about the curriculums they use, teaching materials, e-tools, Moodle platform, the organisation of the apprenticeship and the employment opportunities for the school graduates in local and European job markets.
