New historical record in number of mobilities: 415
Only in the first semester of 2017, Xarxa FP has managed 415 mobilities, setting up a new record in the history of the network.
From January to June 2017 the Association has arranged 254 mobility actions for students and 161 training activities for VET teachers and professionals, the best performance by far in the history of the network. The previous record was set in 2016 with 397 mobilities (+18 in 2017).
Regarding students’ mobility, Xarxa FP has already increased by 18 the number of mobilities compared to last year. This is due, in part, by two big groups of students from Breda (54) and Zwolle (91) that have done a short-term study-visit to Berlin in the fields of Marketing & Communication and Business Administration. Regarding internships, Munich has been the most active city sending students (36) while Barcelona the one hosting more students (44).
When it comes to teachers and staff mobility, Zwolle has coped 61 out of the 161 mobilities done in 2017 with two big groups of teachers that went to Berlin (37) and Barcelona (24) from Business Administration and Care respectively. Barcelona has also been very active, sending 43 VET professionals to 8 different Xarxa cities. Apart from Berlin and Barcelona, Rovaniemi (21) and Zwolle (20) have received 21 and 20 teachers respectively as hosting cities.
