Erasmus Funded Projects
We have collaborated with European partners from Italy, Poland, Greece, Spain, Austria and France. We have taken part in many social mobility and vocational education training projects and continue to do so.
These projects are aimed at improving the educational training and mobility of specific target groups, such as marginalised groups, young adults, or disabled people. Activities can include the delivery of specific training, organisation of work placements, or intellectual outputs designed to improve a specific aspects of the project’s proposed outcomes.
These projects require commitment, lateral thinking and a high level of organisation and communication and allow international networking and the exchange of knowledge and ideas.
For KA1 Mobility Projects, we act as a receiving organisation. These vocational training projects involve cultural training and 4 weeks work placements for European students in the Reading, Berkshire, and Southampton, Hampshire. Please see a selection of our projects below.
