We wanted you to meet the 6 students from the Lithuanian school “Elektrenai Vocational Training Centre” we had the pleasure to receive in March 2020. Their project, “Practice+” (No. 2019-1-LT01-KA102-060115), was funded by the European Union under the Erasmus Plus Programme.
During their stay, they did an intership in mechatronics sector. Therefore, they could develop their practical skills in real working situations, improved their professional skills and some specific competences.
Moreover, students could also visit Valencia and discover the main attractions of the city.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic crisis, they had to go back to Lithuania before the end of the program. However, we truly believe that even if they stayed in Valencia for a shorter period, the group had the opportunity to discover another culture, experience new working practices and improve some transversals skills such as communication, problem-solving, adaptability, life in community and responsibility.
ESMOVIA and partners started the month of February off strong with our LTTA event (Learning, Training, and Teaching) hosted here in Valencia, the week of February 7th to the 10th. This event was part of our European Project EMoCC – European Mobility Career Counseling project which focuses on giving career counselors support in their jobs and new resources to use with their clients.
This project aims to both understand and stimulate, job mobility experiences within the European Union, with the overall outcome being the construction of two different MOOCs (massive open online courses) addressed to career counselors:
- MOOC 1 on Career Counseling
- MOOC 2 on European job mobility
During this dynamic event, each partner, based on their expertise, gave mini speeches on different topics related to the brainstorming and design of MOOC 2. Topics discussed were basic mobility knowledge and competences, awareness of diversity, cross-cultural capacities, social inclusion and legal aspects, within both the migrant and non-migrant populations.
Through discussion and direct practice of some of these techniques, we are one step further in our project, and happy to share it directly with you.
