Job shadowing for teachers
Job shadowing is an effective form of professional development with many potential benefits for teachers. It gives teachers opportunities to see other teaching practices from a different angle and enriches the process of continuing professional development and expand their network to a European level. Promimpresa is able to find the best job shadowing opportunities in Italy.
School groups: student work experience abroad
Erasmus+ encourages young people (Higher education students and Vocational education and training students) to gain work experience internationally, increase their cultural awareness and enhance their employability. School, organisation or institution must apply for funding and the placement choice has to relate to the students’ specific program of learning at school and their personal development needs. Applications can not be made by individuals.
Through key action 1 of the Erasmus + program it is possible to spend training periods abroad in one of the member countries of the European Union. Each school can involve students, teachers, and internal staff to offer the opportunity to improve their professional profile and increase their skills. The school will also be able to improve its educational offer and stand out for the opportunities offered to its students and staff in Europe.
High school and vocational training students can participate from the first year of the course up to 12 months after graduation. The activities foreseen by the program are two:
- a study period abroad at a partner equivalent higher education institution
- a traineeship (work placement) abroad in a enterprises operating in the student’s study programme
The activities can be carried out for periods from a minimum of 2 weeks to a maximum of 12 months.
During the mobility, the student acquires both technical and professional skills related to the course of study and transversal skills.
Depending on the course of study, the student will improve the operability of the profession he intends to undertake, learning procedures and best practices to excel and make a difference both during the school period and at the end of the studies. All that will facilitate the entry into the world of work. Experience abroad is a fundamental requirement to increase professional value and expand job prospects.
