This week teachers and students from HETEL´s schools La Salle Berrozpe, Egibide, Salesianos Deusto, Somorrostro and Zulaibar are in the Netherlands to present the project that, for 2 months and in cooperation with ROC Da Vinci college, have been designing in the framework of Diseinua International.

This year, the project consisted of the design of a plastic injection machine. The students, working in international teams (Netherlands-Basque Country) have presented their projects in front of 60 people (students, teachers and companies from the Netherlands), being the presentations in English and answering to all technical questions about their work.

At the end of the presentation, a ranking with the 4 best projects has been made, attending to various criteria (presentation, quality of plans or manufacturing possibilities).

This experience, possible thanks to the support of BBK Fundazioa and Fundación Vital, has been very enriching both for students and teachers, not only from the point of view of technical competences development but also for their personal and social development.

We are very glad to be able to keep alive this experience, which started 4 academic years ago and we hope to keep offering this opportunity to our students in the future!

Diseinua international VET

A new edition of Diseinua International project has been launched, putting together Vocational training students from HETEL Schools ( La Salle Berrozpe, Salesianos Deusto, Zulaibar, Somorrostro and Egibide) with students from ROC da Vinci College in the Netherlands, thanks to the support of BBK and Fundación Vital.

In this case, the challenge given by the teachers to the students to solve it is the design of an injection machine to reduce the volume of plastic waste.

During these 2 next weeks, Dutch students have come to the Basque Country to meet the peers in their group. After the joint presentation of the challenge to the students, these will be working partially on-line partially in person to give a satisfactory answer to the challenge.

The solution given by the students will be presented and evaluated in the Netherlands the week of the 9th of March.

The participants in this international project will develop important skills for companies, such as teamwork, English, intercultural communication, self-learning or self-management, which will help them to be better prepared for their next professional future. Abantean!

SIMPLY INCLUDED is an Erasmus+ KA2 project which aims to reach out migrant students or graduates in VET to share their stories in the path to education and the labour work in order to guide and inspire other migrants who may feel reflected in them.

The project aims to empower migrants all over Europe by sharing videos of those stories. Besides, we will also produce a toolkit to be used by VET teachers in order to facilitate a more inclusive education. Complementing this work, a group of teachers will also go to Iceland to receive a training in diversity management by one of the most prestigious trainers in Europe (Intercultural Iceland). At the end of the project we will also produce videos focusing on the job application process for a migrant in the different partners countries: Germany, Turkey, Sweden, Spain and Slovenia.

The partners of the project have experience working together in the SIMPLE project, which was the seed of SIMPLY INCLUDED. From HETEL we are also involving our associated VET school, Centro Formativo Otxarkoaga, who will lead the development of the toolkit in the project. Great to have you on board Ana and Kepa!

HETEL, together with VET schools’ networks from the Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Finland and Scotland, participates in the erasmus+ KA03 “VET Network of networks” project led by the Dutch school “Onderwijsgroep Tilburg”. The purpose of this project is to improve the quality of Vocational Training in our schools, defining the internationalization strategy and strengthening the European collaboration network. These actions will also strengthen the international strategy of HETEL, in order to improve the quality of our training offer.

Last week the first meeting of this ambitious project took place in Arnhem (Holland). In this meeting the bases have been set and the actions of this European project have been structured. Abantean!
