Armeria Eskola offers a comprehensive professional training project of excellence that meets the current needs of the global society. Internationalization is critical. Participation in the ERASMUS+ Programme aims to improve and increase students’ skills and job placement.

Study modules

These activities offer a mobility period of two to three weeks and students receive theoretical and practical training in a VET centre and/or company. The results of the training period are recognized and validated in the school and the contents of the course are adjusted to ensure the adaptation of the mobility period abroad to the course in which the VET student is enrolled.

Participation in foreign experiences provides trainees with other skills. They will gain greater self-confidence and learn to cope with situations of a new and unknown context. They will meet young people who receive the same type of education as in their field, and learn how things are done in a similar or different way in other countries.

Collaborators: Erasmus+ Program, SEPIE, Basque Government, Cruz Irasuegui Foundation, Eibar City Council, La Caixa Foundation, SD Eibar Foundation.

Coordinator: Alina Ivan.

Participants: Medium-level and Higher-level course students.

Year: Every year.

Work placements

In order to reinforce job placement opportunities, vocational trainees can participate in mobility periods of up to 12 months. Each of the mobility activities is adapted to a quality framework previously agreed by the entities that send and welcome students to ensure a high level of quality for the activity, including the “Learning Agreement”.
