What can you learn?
Taking a part of your vocational education and training abroad gives you additional competences. You get more self-confidence and learn to deal with situations in a new and unfamiliar context. You will get to know young people attending the same type of education as yourself and learn how things are done similarly and differently across Europe.
Most study modules will have participants from several countries in Europe. English is their common language and if you are not a native English speaker, well, 3 weeks abroad will definitely improve your English.
If you are native English speaker this is your chance to train how to cooperate and explain yourself. Being in a multilingual and multicultural environment gives you a challenging and exciting platform to develop both professionally and as a person.
Going abroad through your institution and the EMEU network ensures that the knowledge and skills you acquire are relevant for your education. At the end of your stay at an EU partner college, your learning is assessed. The contact between your own institution and the partner you have stayed with, ensures that your learning is accredited as part of your vocational education and training at home.
In some countries, it is possible to get a work placement after finishing the study module at the partner school. This gives you an additional chance to learn about the work culture and practise your knowledge and skills.
