Our Erasmus+ KA1 2015-2016 traineeship students are back!

In the last two weeks our Erasmus+ selected students have returned from their traineeshipson different European countries. These traineeships and integral experiences have been possible by the Erasmus+ KA1 Project for Higher Education in which our high school is involved.

The students selected by the IES Puerto de La Cruz – Telesforo Bravo have performed the work experience in different European cities. These are the countries and cities where our higher cycles of vocational training students have passed nine weeks doing their traineeships:

  • Poland: There will go 3 students of Computer Systems Administration, 3 from Automatization and Robotics and 6 Tourism ones. The cities will be: Cracow and Wroclaw.
  • Germany: In the área of Cologne will stay one Cross-Plattform Application Development student.
  • Czech Republic: Two students of Computer Systems Administration will work in the city of Prague.
  • Italy: One student of Computer Systems Administration will work near the city of Catania, in Sicily.
  • Ireland: One student of Cross-plattform Applications Development will work in the city of Dublin.
  • Scotland: One student of Web Applications Development will work in the city of Edimbourgh

Now we are absolutely sure they all have had a nice experience and keep on working for the next course projects.

KA1 Students Mobility for Training information meeting

Next Tuesday, 14th June, will take place an information meeting of the KA1 Students Mobility for Training project for higher education of the Erasmus+ Programme. This meeting is going to be in the Salón de Actos at 10:45 am and it’s addressed to the students of first course of higher level cycles who are interested in the project.
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.

Talented Europe KA2 project Transnational Meeting in Brussels

During the 5th and 6th of May, the second Transnational Meeting of the Erasmus+ KA2 “Talented Europe” project was held in Brussels. This is a European project of our school, coordinated by CIFP César Manrique, and with partners in Belgium, Slovakia and England.


The project lasts 3 years and its ultimate goal is the development of a computer application (both web and mobile) to put talented students in contact with companies. Our center has been attended by the two teachers at the school involved in the project: Carlos Manescau and Sergio Delgado.

Eurobalades is flying to Azores Islands, Portugal

In a few days, part of the Eurobalades group is flying to Azores, where the second meeting with students will take place, between 3rd and 10th May. Our teachers Ángeles Estévez and Rosa Rodríguez will travel with five of our students to share this exciting adventure.
One of the activities they are doing during their stay is the performance of some traditional Canarian dances, such as “Berlina” from EL Hierro or “Isa del pavo”. That´s why teachers and students have been practising every day under the direction of our official choreographer, Inmaculada Hernández.
We wish them a happy stay and …. have a nice flight!

Impressive experience of one of our Erasmus+ students

One of our higher cycle students, Claudio Chico Lorenzo, coursing 3rd Multiplatform Application Development, is doing his traineeship term through KA1 project of Erasmus+ Programme at the University College Dublin (Ireland). It is noteworthy that the student will actively participate in a project of this university related analytical forensic computing. According to the student himself tells us: “The job is to build an application that makes forensic copies (exact copies bit to bit) of a hard drive but not the traditional way. Usually when the police requires a forensic study of a hard disk, a full copy of it is made. The process may well take a couple of days and can only be carried out in certain laboratories criminology by certified experts … so there is an absolute collapse in all countries when conducting analysis of digital evidence. The idea is to reduce backup time analyzing the disk first and discovering that parts are really new and which belong to commonly used files and no known criminal (SO, music, software, games …) or are empty. “
The IES Puerto de la Cruz – Telesforo Bravo congratulates the student to play such an interesting work and is proud of the satisfactory results being obtained through our different European mobility projects.
