2nd networking session of VET Schools from Barcelona and VET Colleges with TVET UK, Barcelona
Last 17th and 18th of February, Xarxa FP’s Secretariat General hosted the second Networking Session of Vocational Education Schools of Barcelona and British vocational colleges in the headquarters of the Barcelona Education Institute (IMEB) as a continuation of the last session in October 2014, London.
This conference was organised in collaboration with the UKTI in Barcelona (UK Trade and Investment, British Consulate-General) and TVET UK and reunited about 30 participants of 15 vocational schools. This conference aimed at providing schools in both countries with the opportunity to get together and to encourage mutual understanding to facilitate the generation of synergies in order to promote the establishment of long-term partnerships, to carry out joint actions in the field of mobility and the development of joint accreditation. In this sense, the conference featured a presentation on the system of recognition of education units in the context of mobility actions in Catalonia under the direction of Mr. Gonzalez from the Deputy Direction of Programs, Training and Innovation of the Government of Catalonia.
