VET experience for life
Start date: Oct 1, 2016, End date: Sep 30, 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

VEIL project (Vet ExperIence for Life) is a mobility platform for First technical school Tesla and an instrument for achieving goal. Many of the goals are at the same time components of our strategy of internationalization.Student preparation strategy will start with three levels of meetings at which the informations will be given to parents, teachers and students, three communication channels (Web, Facebook, public announcements), preparatory activities (literary, language, intercultural, pedagogical and vocational) and insurance and other documents (medical ID’s, travel tickets and reservation).During the mobility, we are planning a continuous support to students and teachers (through project coordinator, his assistants and contact persons at our partner organisations) by the following channels: Viber, Whatsapp, mobile phone, e-mail and Google Drive. The means of documentation has been planned as well by signing: a “Project team work” document, Quality Commitment, Europass Mobility, Learning Passport and Internship diary.Mobilities will allow us to continuously improve on many levels. By cooperating with our partners, we will make it easier for our students to attain practical experience (through work in school workshops or companies) which is very important for labour market. Teachers will be able to work on their professional training (electrical and mechanical engineering, other subjects) by directly observing educational or professional activities at the companies and by transferring good practices and gaining knowledge about mobilities (if our EU team is concerned). Our teachers will be more proficient in their work and will be able to modernize their classes, and our students will be more motivated for further formal or informal education in order to better adapt for labour market. Learning outcomes will be implemented in school’s curricula.In Finland, our students will work at Tampere college workshops where they will learn welding and CNC machining, and teachers will gain knowledge about Finnish educational system. In Malta, MCAST college will host our students in workshops (automotive industry, welding) and our EU team will go to Malta to be better acquainted with their EU team which is highly experienced. In Italy, we will be at the Olivetti Institute where our students will work at workshops (learning electronics) and in their 3D printing laboratory. Teachers will get to know state of the art didactical tools and digital learning platforms. Germany will allow students and teachers access to various private companies in Frankfurt and its vicinity so that they can get familiar with competences that modern companies seek. In Ireland we will send a group of students to work in the Newpark school’s workshops for the first week, and in the second week students will go to local company where they will learn how to work with electro erosion machining device which is rather rare in Croatia, but more and more used worldwide.Cooperation with colleagues and peers throughout the Europe and involvement in multicultural environment will contribute to increase of tolerance to different cultures, and by choosing the participating students which have fewer opportunities we will enable them to more easily continue their post-educational part of life.Expected results will be visible on multiple levels. Project will increase attractiveness of our school for future students. It will also increase our chances for getting VET charter and will define our school as a place of quality mobilities and international cooperation. Mobilities will bring our students new competences, strengthen their team spirit and add European dimension to their personal development. Teachers will, by participating in this project, work on their professional development by which they will make their own classes and lesson plans more modern, interesting and more actual.Dissemination will be through channels on which we noted the highest activity of our target groups: future students and parent. The channels are our Internet and Facebook pages, international vocational magazines, school flyers (distributed at events), second edition of our yearbook and by participating in media in which we are already active (Vecernji, Jutarnji list, HRT, Radio Sljeme, Hrvatski radio). Our EU project coordinator will get the chance to disseminate the project at various TCA seminars, which he is already attending, so that our project could have an international impact as well.Quality assurance will be made through internal (students, teachers) and external evaluation (our partners). It will be made anonymously on Google Docs platform, so that the results would be objective and statistically valid. We are planning long-term quality assurance by monitoring the activities of students who participated in this project after they go to the labour market. Data will be collected statistically in intervals and they will be used for improvement of future project’s
