European Projects and Partners

 

We have considerable expertise in European projects:  

  • with active and reliable partners all over Europe

  • coupled with a reputation for quality outcomes.

The visit to the Hat Museum was brilliant, giving an insight to the history of the area but also educational projects. The experiential learning approach used by the museum was great.
The city of Sao Joao di Maderia is small and therefore the examples were reflective of this.

I was particularly impressed by the EPIS work addressing the dropout of students from schools. This is a national project. Their identification methods and interventions including the use of employers seemed sound. I also found interesting the work of the Sao Joao di Maderia municipality on Entrepreneurship activity in schools interesting and their linking this to Eu2020 targets.
The use of young people who were engaged in work experience placements to accompany us on visits to factories was an interesting concept. It give us the opportunity to talk to young people and find out first hand their experiences and of course they improved their language skills and confidence.
