Erasmus Charter will allow us to improve our teaching strategy through the transnational mobility of students and teachers. It will also have a different perspective of the working world, different from the one we know in our country. It will provide the knowledge of other cultures and languages and obviously, will enhance the personal and professional competences, which we consider relevant aspects in the training of students who will be given the opportunities to adapt to different situations and social contexts in the future.
Moreover Erasmus Charter will allow open the door at the European dimension. This will facilitate increasing attainment levels for our students and teachers. We believe that mobility in training processes is fundamental strategies that allow people involved to improve their professional and personal skills, as well as improve their employability and languages skills. For this reason, Can Vilumara Higher School is promoting mobility and cross-border cooperation. We are committed to the mobility of students and teachers as one of the fundamental tools for the updating of education and the improvement of education quality.
