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”.
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 2017-2018. Another two grants are available from previous KA1 project of 2016-2017. Thus, we will have the initial 19+2 mobility workplaces funded by Erasmus+ grants and 1 added traineeship place funded by the DGFPEA, so we can finally have 22 places for student mobilities. The amount of this support will be slightly less than the Erasmus+ budget, but enough to face mobility.
