Transferring Innovation in Vocational Education to Technological Areas – Erasmus Plus KA1 project

Erasmus Plus KA1 Project Turkish Partners Plymouth UK Almond Vocational Link

In early August 2015 Almond Vocational Link hosted a group of 7 professionals from a technical college in Turkey. Our partners came to Plymouth, UK in order to take part in an Erasmus Plus funded Key Action 1 Mobility for Professionals in Vocational Educational Training project, and increase their qualifications as teachers and trainers. Their project was focused around modern technologies and web design. Its aim was to learn learn about new ways of coding and include the most current technologies into curriculum to give the students the best training possible to fully prepare them for the needs of the current market.

Almond Vocational Link organised a 10 day study program to fit the participants budget and project specifications. We arranged a suitable training course with our trusted provider, booked the participants accommodation, and local transport passes for the duration of their stay. Almond Vocational Link was also responsible for monitoring and mentoring the participants throughout the process, and for fulfilling all the necessary Erasmus Plus documentation.
