DGFPEA Financial Support and Erasmus+ “Zero Grants”

The General Direction of Vocational Training and Adult Education (DGFPEA) of the Department of Education, Culture and Sports of Canary Islands CA has confirmed centers participating in Erasmus+ student mobilities projects providing a financial support. Since that organism’s use of support is recommended to increase the number of mobilities according to the so-called Erasmus+ “Zero Grants”.dgfpea

The IES Puerto de la Cruz – Telesforo Bravo, through the school Erasmus+ Coordination, has decided to use this economic contribution to increase the number of places for mobility trainees during 2016-2017. Another two grants are available from previous KA1 project of 2015-2016. Thus, we will have the initial 16+2 mobility workplaces funded by Erasmus+ grants and 1 added traineeship place funded by the DGFPEA, so we can finally have 19 places for student mobilities. The amount of this support will be slightly less than the Erasmus+ budget, but enough to face mobility.

KA1 SMP / STT project for course 2016 / 2017

IES Puerto de la Cruz – Telesforo Bravo has been successful, as last years, for Erasmus+ Students Mobilities for Practices KA1 Project. The Spanish National Agency (SEPIE) has selected our application and has granted the Project with 16 mobilities for students and 2  mobilities for staff.

To these mobilities for students will be added 2 more SMP ones left from last year KA1 Project. Then, 18 of our higher short cycle students are going to have the opportunity of taking part in the Project and do their traineeship in an European country.

Erasmus+ KA1 staff mobilities for training 2015-2016

In recent dates four of our staff teachers have returned from their Erasmus+ KA1 mobilities. Three of them have gone through KA1 staff mobilities for training higher education project for one week, two in the city of Vicenza -Italy- (Emilio Matamoros Sayar and David vargas Ruíz) and one in the city of Edimbourgh -Scotland- (Emilio Aguilar Gutiérrez). The other teacher, Ana Delia Hernández Hernández. Has done her mobility accompanying the mid level vocational training students in their traineeship mobilities in Vicenza for one month.

The European Projects team will informa and resolve questions about all the process and will also attend some students who have done this year mobilities. We encourage you to attend!

Erasmus+ resources for the search of traineeships and accommodation

The team of European Programs of IES Puerto de la Cruz is promoting in recent years the search for destinations by the students themselves. We think it is a good choice for participants in the mobilities to be involved in the process and are eligible for more personalized destinations. This participation will be considered as an advantage in the selection process for the next course 2016-2017 mobilities.

Then we leave some useful links for search and contact internship positions in European companies and also for finding accommodation. They are all projects related with the Erasmus+ programme and the European Commission.

Eurobalades in Açores

Between 3rd and 10th May, a group of students and teachers belonging to the European project K2 Erasmus+Eurobalades flew to San Miguel Island (Açores Archipelago, Portugal) to meet the other participants in this project which has formed a group of nine different countries (Turkey, Romania, Bulgary, Greece, Italy, Belgium, France, Portugal and Spain).

In this second “rencontre” we had the opportunity to wander the path named “Sete Cidades”, to dive into the warm and iron waters of “Caldeira Velha” and Lagoa do Fogo”, to kayak , to visit tea plantations (“chá”) and pineapple ones or to visit a traditional Portuguese porcelain factory.
In short, we enjoyed a wonderful week and could also discover a beautiful island full of fantastic landscapes; that´s why we would like to thank the perfect organisation of the host team.
