Encouraging educators and students to become involved in European Mobility Programmes is one of the goals that the school’s Director set every year since the involvement with such projects. The implementation of such projects will give them a great opportunity to develop their personality, self-esteem, competence and skills. The participants are teachers/instructors and pupils. The administration of our school, having in mind the need for further personal and professional development of the educators, staff and pupils of the school, decided that 2 teachers/instructors and 17pupils should take advantage of the benefits that Erasmus+ Programme offers. The participants will be pupils attending a Hairdressing course. The pupils of the Hairdressing department during their third year of studies at school, they must undergo practical training in hairdressing establishments for 180 hours, a pre - requisite for obtaining their school leaving certificate.All teaching and administration staff have work experience within their fields. Especially, the instructors of the Hairdressing Department work closely with the industry since during the training program of the students (180 hours training period) which is compulsory work experience, the educators are inspecting and evaluating the students. The teachers/instructors and the pupils of the Hairdressing Department have participated in similar projects and the results were very beneficial and enjoyable and gained a lot from similar projects in the past.This mobility project consists of one main activity: 17 pupils from the Hairdressing department will attend a two week training period in hairdressing saloons at Olomouc. Our Institution will carry out the management of the project, as explained in section F of this application. Our school will work closely with our partners in order to set up the learning agreements, concerning the procedures that both partners will follow and set up the standards for meeting the desired learning outcomes of the project. Furthermore in cooperation with our partner organizations will set up the measures of evaluation upon the completion of the project; for all the partners taking part in this Mobility Programme.As it is previously mentioned, one of the main objectives of this project for our school is to establish a solid cooperation with European Institutions in the field of VET. Upon meeting the objectives of this project an important result would be the improvement of qualification of teaching personnel as well as the establishment of processes regarding validation of experience gained during learning (for students) and teaching (for educators) periods in another country.Students by improving their language skills will improve their learning performance; upgrading students’ awareness of the European Union values and European Mobility projects will eventually upgrade the students' intercultural awareness and finally increase their self-esteem and employability.
