35 students from Brescia to Spain, Poland and Lithuania with the project TRAIN financed by the European Union with the program ERASMUS+

Brescia 05-23-2016

Also in this month, May, a lot of students from the partner schools in Brescia are leaving for the program ERASMUS+ TRAIN Trainings in Europe for a sustainable development of the local areas coordinated by the social non-profit cooperative Mistral and financed by the European Union.

11 students from the High School Capirola in Leno, are already in Vilnius (they left on the 20th of may) and will stay there until the 4th of July, while 11 more students from the same school will be in Poland from the 23rd of may. 13 students from the high school Primo Levi in Sarezzo, will go to Barcelona (Spain) on the 21st of may, 8 students will stay there for two weeks, while 5 students continue their experience for a month. During this experience, the students, accompanied by 3 teachers, will get to know the hosting countries and will have the opportunity to do an internship in companies, associations and authorities selected by the local partners in the field of the branches of the projects, such as companies that work in the touristic, administrative, cultural, social sector where they could improve their knowledge and competences and get to know working and studying practices.

The high school Primo Levi (http://primolevi-bs.gov.it/ ) has stand out for giving the youngsters who want to find a job in the economic, administrative branch, finance, marketing and international relations for marketing, a formation process, internships experiences, not only in the local companies but also in Europe.

The high school V.Capirola in Leno (http://www.capirola.it ) has been really active in researching partnerships and synergies with the territory and in the production of vocational projects during these past years, with the goal to give formative and didactical experiences to the students.

These two schools have subscribed to the project TRAIN, so that the students have the concrete possibility to face other modalities of working, other cultures and other youngsters. The aim is to improve the personal capacities, but also to bring to the territory on Brescia the competences they have acquired, with processes of knowledge, innovation and comparison with the model of the local economic world.

In Lithuania, the students will be hosted in the capital, that has an extended and well preserved baroque city centre, that has been declared world heritage by Unesco. The international organization EUTRADE (http://eu-trade.lt/ ) hosts the students in a city hostel and has organized the research of the internships looking at the CV of the students.

In Poland the organization EDU (http://edu-it.home.pl/ ) that handles training services at a European level is set in Rzeszow, capital of the region Paskarpacie in the south east of Poland, it hosts our students in a city hotel and it finds possibilities of internships in companies of international transports, events organization, museum of local culture, touristic itineraries, travel agencies and tour operators.

In Barcelona Nexes, a non profit organization founded in 1999 with a team of young workers, internees and experts in European programmes, to handle the hospitality of the students in flats and families. Nexes, log-term partner of Mistral, has deployed the students on the territory in agencies that promote the territory, cultural centres and associations, social media marketing, libraries, hotels, etc…

We are sure this will be a useful experience for the professional, linguistic, intercultural and personal development of the participants. The organisers of the project, the participant schools and the local partners are sure that these experiences enlarge the cultural horizon of the young European citizens and promote the equality of possibilities and a common sense of memberships.

The local and international partnership is made of 27 partenrs:

5 schools (I.I.S. “VINCENZO CAPIROLA” – I.I.S.S. “PRIMO LEVI” – I.I.S. “L. EINAUDI” – I.I.S. “VINCENZO DANDOLO” – EUROSCUOLA – EUROSTUDI SRL), territorial authorities, national authorities in the field of social tourism, associations, cooperatives and touristic, production and working consortiums.
