Dundrum College of Further Education is keen to develop European partnerships across all of our vocational specialisms. This project, our first student mobility Erasmus+ project titled, EPIC aims to enhance the college experience of our students and to provide them with the opportunities that working in another European jurisdiction can provide such as societal awareness, multi-culturalism, initiative and relationship management, critical thinking skills and obtaining a heightened awareness of their own vocational specialism.
The mobility aspect of the project enables students from different areas of study to work and travel together, the development of these new relationships will create sustainable networks for the dissemination of learning across the wider community in our college.
Our current European partners are based in Norway, Estonia and Germany and we have students travelling to these jurisdictions in 2020 to complete their work experience abroad. We will also have Norwegian students completing their work placement in Ireland.
We are working on future developments in mainland Spain and Tenerife.
