Under the Erasmus + Program, funded by the European Union, the Cidenai Vocational School provided 12 students from the Secretariat, Commerce and Information Technology courses to study abroad for seven weeks. Thus, six senior year students were in Rovigo, Italy, from May 11 to June 29.

This participation helped to enrich their professional training, but also personal, having these students experienced a multiplicity of experiences.  Also worthy of note were the International Multiplier Events, in each of the destinations, where the Project, the Cidenai School, the region of Santo Tirso and even the country were promoted.

In Rovigo, this took place on June 24, with the participation of the Educational Director, Ricardo Sampaio, the Director General, Mário Barros, and a representative of the National Agency Erasmus +, Pedro Pires. In Tenerife, the event took place on July 29, with the participation of the Pedagogical Director of the School.

They were two very remarkable and singular moments, with lectures, debates and presentations of the performance of the participants.

In partenza il Progetto €œVocational Heritage promosso da Heritage Managment Consultants alta in partenariato Muoversi.eu in qualità di ente intermediario in Italia, si inquadra all’€™interno del Programma Leonardo da Vinci Azione Mobilità  Misura VETPRO e mira a sostenere la mobilità transnazionale delle persone responsabili della formazione professionale e/o risorse umane che operano all’€™interno degli uffici, enti, musei, che agiscono sotto la responsabilità di Heritage Malta.

I partecipanti, divisi in più flussi, realizzeranno un tirocinio/scambio presso Muoversi.eu. Lo stesso sarà incentrato sul trasferimento, sul miglioramento e sull’aggiornamento di competenze e/o metodologie e pratiche innovative nel campo della formazione professionale. Lo scambio riguarderà, inoltre, un periodo di formazione linguistica dei professionisti coinvolti prima di dare avvio alla fase di tirocinio.
Il Programma Leonardo da Vinci, al cui interno si sviluppa la presente proposta, cofinanzia la realizzazione della mobilità in base alla durata dello scambio e al Paese ospitante. Sono stabiliti dei massimali di contributo per le seguenti voci:
• Organizzazione del Progetto (progettazione, gestione e monitoraggio, rendicontazione e disseminazione dei risultati; preparazione dei partecipanti – formazione linguistica);
• Partecipanti (sussistenza – assicurazione contro il rischio infortunistico e la responsabilità civile, contributo per il vitto e i trasporti locali, alloggio, tutoraggio specifico; contributo per il viaggio a/r).

Le attività pianificate mirano a rafforzare l’apprendimento reciproco, la cooperazione e lo scambio di conoscenze, buone prassi e know how e contribuiscono alla modernizzazione dei sistemi di formazione all’interno delle strutture di provenienza, grazie all’esperienza accumulata dai professionisti coinvolti.
Il partenariato, nazionale e transnazionale, è stato strutturato in modo da sostenere la realizzazione delle attività in tutte le fasi progettuali e riunire soggetti sufficientemente motivati e interessati, operanti nel settore professionale privilegiato del Progetto e in grado di garantire una efficace diffusione dei risultati sul territorio.
