Erasmus+ has a long tradition at our school since 2005. Erasmus supports cooperation and mobility in education and students of our school gain practical skills and improve their language skills in EU countries within this project.
Our school has many years of experience with mobility projects and VETPRO in the framework of the programme Leonardo da Vinci. Since 2007 we already made trips to 6 countries – the United Kingdom, Spain, Turkey, Germany, Slovenia and Slovakia. Within the three-week work placements, 150 students took part in the projects. Professional internship has proven themselves. Students acquired the language and professional knowledge and they were also motivated to prospective study abroad. This is reason why we would like to continue in the project activities. It allows our students and teaching staff members to improve their professional knowledge abroad mainly in the area of entrepreneurship and business environment abroad.
