Methodology to fulfill projects with other schools

As Integrated Vocational School, the Projects of Innovation, Cooperation, staff and students mobilities, are framed in the Quality and Innovation Area, depending on the VicePrincipal who is in charge of assigning supporting tasks to the Quality and Innovation Departments. In this Department the coordination of teacher Innovation and Training are integrated as well as TICs which usually develop the projects of our school, according to the current rules where the autonomy of the Direction is recognized to organize the necessary timetable to optimize the development of the programs mentioned.

Our CIFP focuses its interests in the coordination of mutual projects with other schools, based on a team work, coordination, communication, settling the consolidation of contacts, so the methodologic lines which we use are based on:

  • Team work, coordination and communication among the different members to fulfill the following activities:
     Planning the project homogenizing criteria and processes of implementation of activities.
     Organizing a contacts plan which makes an information interchange by e-mail, marking the time and day of the week to make the mentioned contact
     Checking and updating the applicable rules.
  • Incorporation of the students to the project, the reception session of the different participants in the activity:Organization and fulfilling a welcome session for the different members of the project
  • Gathering, organization, management, and writing the different materials and documents referred to the project, and the final report:
  • The CIFP will include the project in the annual report of the school, what will make easier its spreading to the educational community

Expected impact of the participation in the program

The CIFP Compostela understands the participation in the Erasmus Program as an opportunity to improve the abilities and skills of the staff and the students, promoting mobility projects, professional improvement and cooperation in an European context.

On the other hand we think that spreading and announcing our experience in European Projects, is going to have a big influence in the number of students to join our school and the studies taking part in these mobilities. At the same time the businessmen around our area of influence will be interested too, and the students themselves to start a career in the working world, what will ease their access to their first job.

At the same time , we think that the possibility of contacts and collaboration with qualified professionals of vocational training in the companies around our area, are an opportunity which we will try to take and to boost, because we trust in the continous training and improving the teaching task of our school thanks to the possibility and interchange of knowledge and experiences which will make a better quality of our studies and update and improve the methodology of our staff for the mobilities.A basic element for this is to encourage the permanent learning and the ability to adapt to the social , organizing and technologic changes present in the productive sectors of our society.

We will try, this way, to establish an area of cooperation between the High Grade vocational training system and the surrounding working sector, to develop and spread a culture of permanent training, to contribute to the prestige of Vocational training.

Ending to indicate that the CIFP understands that the previous ideas will help to promote the real and effective equality between sexes, with special relevance for the prejudice erradication in the training, labour and working team inserction of different professionals.
