In recent years, we have gained a vast amount of valuable experience in dealing with large scale, EU supported educational programmes. We have worked with partners from across Europe and actively participate in projects that help to educate, integrate and give access to gain new skills and widen horizons of our participants.Erasmus – Leonardo da Vinci Mobility – Leonardo da Vinci Partnership – Citizenship Programme – VETPRO – Transversal – Grundtvig – Erasmus+
All of the above programmes are a part of the European Union’s Lifelong Learning Programme. Our company strongly believes in working closely with other European Partners towards improving and developing educational methods, influencing others to remain in education and gain knowledge through new experiences. These projects improve integration, develop and implement innovative teaching methods, break language barriers and give others a great chance to explore new opportunities, gain new skills and qualifications. Almond Vocational Link strongly believes in the objectives promoted by these programmes and with many years of experience and dedication in supporting those, we are proud of our achievements.
