Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

After three successful mobility projects under the Leonardo da Vinci program in 2009, 2011 and 2013, Green Academy Aarhus has achieved high standards in its work with student mobility. Among other things it has expressed itself in the design of a genuine international strategy. The present project, "Time4travelling", has the dual purpose of maintaining the current level of student mobility and contributing to the continued capacity building and quality improvement when it comes to internationalization in general and student mobility in particular. Further, our work on capacity building should be seen in light of the VET reform (to be implemented in the summer of 2015) that challenges several of the established routines in the work with student mobility. The project is 2-year running and it aims at the deployment of 30 students of the new specialized Basic Course 2 to 4 partner countries: the Netherlands, England, Finland and Iceland. Students are equally divided between the sexes and are age-wise between 17 and 24 years old. In terms of future profession, the participants will have rather different educational objectives: future farmers, agricultural machine operators, animal keepers, gardeners, landscapers, forestry and nature conservationists. Each placement lasts for 3 weeks and should contribute to the student’s professional and personal development. Content-wise, there will be practical assignments mirroring the student’s professional competences in terms of knowledge, skills, responsibility and maturity. The project implements the ECVET procedure and related tools in full: i.e. Memorandum of Understanding, Learning Agreement, Assessment, Validation and Recognition. Europasses are issued to students after the completion of their stays abroad. Via his/her contact teacher each student is involved directly in the formulation of learning objectives as well as in the practical organization of his/her own stay. The administrative responsibility for the project lies in the school's international project department. At project level, the responsibility for implementation and evaluation is with the Green Academy Internationalization Group. We expect that the project will benefit the school’s efforts to increase the quality of work with regards to student mobility. We also expect that it will contribute significantly to the continuing implementation and development of the school’s strategy for internationalization.
