The teachers went to Portugal to their last meeting in the project “Say No to NEET”. We started to check our application form and talked about what was left to do. We created an ebook for career counselling, where we put in some examples as a guide. Each country wrote a blog entry for our website, what we did since the last meeting in Sicily. We also prepared the first steps for our final report. The headmasters, who came to Portugal, wrote a statement about the experience for the school and the importance to participate in such a project. We visited the Town Hall and were welcomed by the mayor and the community. Later we also visited the beautiful town of Alpiarca. We were also able to visit Santarém, the Agriculture National Fair and the capital Lisbon.
After the 4th meeting in Italy students wrote down a report about their apprenticeship experience in different companies , they wrote about their reflections on their skills qualities and competences for a kind of job.
They got a lot of fun, tried themselves and their expectations.
As teachers we worked on preparing a form with different topics in order to share good practices on career guidance.
We wrote down about key competences students are expected to achieve and some tips for teachers on how to work step by step:
Preparations before the Teacher’s meeting in Portugal. Students are asked to prepare a presentation of the conclusions of the different parts of the Erasmus project. Students worked on activities related to getting experience abroad, the job interviews and the apprenticeship in companies. They were really motivated and produced a great work. Conclusions will be transferred into a leaflet to be delivered to all the students by the end of June as a helpful tool for their career guidance.
All the students were asked to write a report or make a presentation of their Practice Days. The students really enjoyed and appreciated their one-day apprenticeship at the companies of their choice. They spent the day doing some job shadowing usually at the workplace of their family member. The reports were uploaded on LMS platform. Some students also created posters of the day and displayed them in Erasmus+ corner.
The teachers worked on the e-book for career guidance. They created five sessions that were held in Poland during the meeting in November 2017.
The Austrian students wrote a summary of their working day experience in German and English and presented them in front of the other students in our school. The teachers made some examples for the career counselling guide and uploaded it on lms. Some preparations have been made for the ebook and we also made a to-do-list for Portugal.
The Portuguese Team “Say no to NEET” had held an Erasmus Open Day and a Talent Show.
During these days the students from our school and the community could contact directly with our project.
During the Erasmus Open Day the team promoted an exhibition about the project and a workshop about ERASMUS+ Programme, to motivate students to participate in these type of projects and the importance of learning English and improving the key skills, preparing them for future life, giving examples of “Say no to NEET” activities.
The Talent Show was the opportunity for all the students of our school to join the project and to share their own talents with their peers.
School is more than a classroom, school is a place where all the students must learn and enjoy what they are doing at the same time!
Today Erasmus+ Open day was held in our school. We had prepared lovely cakes with Erasmus+ logo and partner countries flags. Every student of our school could have a bite if they participated in our Erasmus+ Quiz .
The questions weren’t easy but the students did really well.
Project students had worked on the posters presenting their Erasmus+ experience and general facts promoting the idea of Erasmus+ projects. We had so much fun;-)
From November to April the Austrian Team was working on the preparations of the talent show and the Erasmus+ days.
Both events were prepared by the Erasmus team members (students and teachers).
A lot of fun the students had by preparing a special traditional dance, which they will perform in Sicily.
Erasmus Open Day, 18/02/2018
Sant Lluís, Begues, SPAIN
On February, 18th, we held an Erasmus Open Day. All the school community was able to know and share the Erasmus programme and the Erasmus project, "Say no to NEET". A group of Erasmus students were in charge of the stand and told families about the Erasmus programme, the benefits and how to apply. There was a small exhibition with the products and some presents from the different country partners involved in the project . Students organized an easy game-TRIVIAL- to attract people's attention. Finally, they were awarded with a small present if they guessed the answer.
The Erasmus Open Day was part of the Open School Day to let the community and the area know about our school and the programmes we are currently running, such as "Say no to NEET" Erasmus KA2.
Both, families and students, and also teachers were highly involved and interested in the programme, which means we are working professionally. Human Towers exhibition was performed to show team work, which is essential in such kind of projects.
Austrian students just have started right after returning back home from Poland with an active task. During the Open Day at the NMS Kohfidisch the Erasmus students presented themselves in the project and giving other students further information.
The Erasmus students started to promote the "Talent Show" so that many students will be registered for the shows.
