The Erasmus+ 2014/2020 programme presents the KA103 framework, aiming to encourage the mobility of students within any of the countries participating in the programme. The objective is to facilitate the opportunity of either training or completing an internship in higher education institutions, research institutes or companies. The participating countries are:
Germany, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Denmark, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Iceland, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malta, Norway, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, UK, Czech Republic, Romania, Sweden and Turkey.
Concerning mobility projects with third countries, this centre has been sending students and teachers to countries like the U.S.A., China or India for the past 9 years, availing of scholarships organised by the Galician regional government (Xunta de Galicia). The recent development of the Erasmus+ mobility programmes has motivated the resumption of collaborations, benefiting from the KA107 actions for partner countries. The objective of this centre, as well as of other centres from programme countries, is not only to create a close collaboration relationship internally but also to reach out to other territories beyond the scope of the programme. The present project will encourage mobility plans for students and staff with countries which are not associated to the Erasmus+ programme.
School Education Mobilities
Over the past few years, IES Ribeira do Louro has conducted mobility programmes aimed at secondary school students, on the one hand, within the scope of the Erasmus+ programme and, on the other hand, availing of other programmes organised by the council of O Porriño in cooperation with local educational centres. The countries to which the students have travelled within these mobility programmes are France, Germany, Sweden and Poland. It is expected that the centre will continue participating in this kind of programmes which facilitate the mobility of students as well as their stay with families in neighbouring countries.
