ERASMUS+ mobility project “YACHT RIGGING AND SHIP ENGINEERING INTERNATIONAL PRACTICE”
Since 2012 the Maritime Vocational School of Latvian Maritime Academy (LMA) has monitored EU Lifelong learning program’s Leonardo da Vinci mobility project “YACHT RIGGING AND SHIP ENGINEERING INTERNATIONAL PRACTICE”, which took place in Valencia, Spain.
In summer 2015 the project was held under ERASMUS+ programme and the geography of the project was widened – this time a group of 10 students went for practice in Republic of Malta, the other group of 10 – to Valencia, Spain.
Students worked in yacht ports and shipyards and obtained practical experience in rigging and maintenance works on sailing ships and boats, as well as gained international communication skills with entrepreneurs and co-workers. Before the practice period they learned Spanish language (Spain group) and improver English (Malta group) in 4 months long course, alongside with a cultural preparation.
After completing the practice, the students obtained EUROPASS Mobility Documents, certificates from the work place and language preparation, which will increase their competitiveness in the labour market.
Also for the upcoming summer 2016 the School was granted a financing for international practice placements within ERASMUS+ project for the same locations: Valencia, Spain and Malta.
Maritime Vocational School is open to cooperation proposals from other countries’ vocational schools and colleges of similar profile.
