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.
Transferring Innovation in Vocational Education to Technological Areas
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.
We met and greeted the participants upon their arrival to Plymouth. They were introduced to their host here in Plymouth, handed the travel passes and given their Handbooks which included info about the area, training schedule and emergency contact details. On the next day, all of the participants were invited to Almond Vocational Link’s office to take part in a welcome meeting followed by a guided tour of Plymouth City Centre, the Hoe and Plymouth Barbican.
