Erasmus + VET. About 60 Aragonese students are preparing to leave Erasmus next month. All of them have met in Zaragoza, where they have shared a training weekend organized by MUNDUS. The scholarship will allow them to do internships in their professional sector in countries such as Holland, Slovenia, Macedonia or France, among others.
For the students of the formative cycles of Aragon, the time to leave Erasmus is approaching. The experience generates many expectations, concerns, doubts and some fear, aspects that have been worked throughout the weekend at the Baltasar Gracián hostel in Zaragoza, in the training organized by the Mundus team.
Before the start of the activities, the CIFPA (Innovation Center for Vocational Training of Aragon) welcomed the participants and explained some of the formalities that they will have to fulfill at the level of documentation and language course to be part of the program. Then, the activities began, where in groups and through non-formal education dynamics, the role of each one in unknown and / or stress situations was discussed and the problem-solving capabilities were worked on. The participants had to face the creation of a parachute for an egg with materials such as folios, chewing gum, balloons, duct tape and cotton. Creativity and teamwork levels were high, although few eggs survived their parachute trip.
During the afternoon the trainers proposed activities to share the fears and expectations that the students had before leaving. During this session, many realized that although they had just met, they shared many of the concerns and concerns that an experience abroad generates. Interculturality was the second theme of the afternoon, exploiting the most theatrical and artistic vein of young people.
Together with the Mundus trainers, we have the support of the volunteer group of the European Voluntary Service that hosts Mundus in Zaragoza. The students were able to chat with Desi (Bulgaria), Sabina, Marta and Kasia (Poland), listen to their experience abroad through the Erasmus + program and ask questions about their countries of origin.
On Sunday, among some sleep yawn but eagerly, young people had the opportunity to work on conflict resolution and sign all necessary documents before departure. We leave you with some of the images of the weekend. Good luck and good trip to all the students!
