ERASMUS+ POLICY STATEMENT
The knowledge and use of different languages has become a basic need and a right for citizens of a global society like ours.
By participating in the Erasmus+ program, the Les Vinyes institute aims to improve education and offer more opportunities to students through a new youth policy and will have a great impact on the modernization and internalization of our institution.
INTERNATIONAL STRATEGY OF THE INSTITUTION
The international strategy of our institution is the following:Geographic areas:
In general, we consider schools from areas with social situations similar to ours. However, as we are very interested in multiculturalism and learning from different environments, we highly value finding a partner school or company from a completely different social environment than our own.
Our strategy in choosing our geographical areas has the following priorities:
European and non-European countries with primary or second language Spanish, English, French, German and Italian. These languages are the most spoken at EU level and, therefore, the most valuable for employment purposes.
- Encourage the use of foreign languages as a learning and communication tool.
- Improve language skills, increased knowledge of other realities and expand professional knowledge of international situation in a connected world.
- To foster professional mobility among students in such a socio-economic disadvantaged area.
- Facilitate the social integration of our students by providing them with the necessary resources to communicate and interact in a multilingual society.
- Offer more attractive Vocational Training to awaken people's interest in achieving higher educational levels.
- Improve students' cultural knowledge, learn about other cultures and other customs, and appreciate and respect cultural differences between countries.
- Improve the quality and relevance of higher education, through the knowledge and use of new tools, new working philosophies and diversity provided by our knowledge of other realities than the national one. We hope that students and staff of the center involved in the mobility will be an example of quality improvement.
