Mobiliteach Summer School is an Erasmus+ project aimed to create a summer school dedicated to mobility, dealing with the different aspects related to it: intercultural preparation, administrative management and work based learning abroad.
During the first year of the project, the partners from Italy, Belgium, Slovenia, Germany, Portugal and Spain have worked in the design of a programme and the development of the necessary materials to deliver a first pilot Mobiliteach Summer School, which took place in Bologna (Italy) between the 25th-29th of June.
25 participants and 9 trainers from the above mentioned countries attended this first experience, which combined training activities with visits to companies and other organizations in order to enrich the experience.
From HETEL´s side, 3 teachers attended the summer school in Bologna and this is what they shared with us:
“For me the experience has meant a new way of learning with the added value of an international context” (Rosa Nuñez, VET teacher in Zabalburu Ikastetxea).
“The summer school has contributed to increase my motivation as a teacher and to develop my intercultural skills” (María Pando, VET teacher from Escuela de Química Indautxu).
“I bring home several activities experienced during the summer school that I will definitely use with my students next academic year, as well as interesting contacts for possible traineeships abroad” (Lorea Garitagoitia, Goierri Eskola).
As one of the trainers taking part in the summer school, Tamara Rodríguez, coordinator of international projects in HETEL, highlights “the good spirit the participants showed, their motivation and their personal involvement in all the activities, sharing their own experiences and own ideas on how to use what has been learnt when they go back to their job”.
Next summer school will be celebrated next year in Bordeaux. Meanwhile, the programme (and some funny pictures!) of the Mobiliteach Summer School in Bologna can be consulted in the Website: https://mobiliteach.net/
