As part of our new Vocational Educational Training project Moving Feet Opening Mind, we’ve asked our trainees to use their imagination to spread the word about the project and its funder the Erasmus+ project of the European Union.

Just six month into the project, our trainees have proved to be very creative. Some decided to organise exhibitions about their project in their colleges/organisations; while some other created a book/leaflet about the whole project or specifically about a new technic they’ve learnt.

This has already been a success and many young people, teachers, parents and other partners have now heard about the project and about the Erasmus+ programme.

Here are a few examples of what they’ve done:


● In April, trainees from Askham Bryan College (with support from Newton Rigg College) organised a fundraising exhibition. Click here for the pictures.
● In May-June, Trainees from Wigan Warrior held an exhibition to share their experience about their VET project in Martinique. Click here for the pictures.
● In June, trainees from Askham Bryan College (with support from Newton Rigg College) have organised an exhibition about their project in Aruba, at their return in the UK. Click here for the pictures.
● In June-July, trainess from Askham Bryan College organised an exhibition about their project in Malta. Click here to see the pictures.

- Two places for trainees/ex-trainees in animal studies to go to Malta to work at Mediterranea approx. November 10th – December 10th – 1 month

- Two places for trainees/ex-trainees to go to Aruba Donkey Sanctuary for two weeks either November or December 2017

This a unique experience during which you will be able to develop personal and professional skills.

This project is funded (Erasmus+). There are no costs to you, and you receive funding for your flights, food and accommodation (we can often even help you if you don’t have a passport). Maybe you were not selected for one of the opportunities by your college or perhaps you did not even know the opportunity existed.

Don’t let the opportunity get away and don’t leave it too late; we can only offer this to you up to 12 months after completing your studies.

In order to participate in this project, you need to live in the UK.
This project is open to new as well as ex-trainees.

The participants of our latest EVS project “Festival of Opportunity” just flew back to their country after helping local community organisations in the UK.

During two weeks they’ve helped keeping environmentally friendly two major festivals in the UK (including the Leeds Festival); encouraging festival goers to recycle, picking up what could be recycled; and finally encouraging people to donate to charities all the camping equipment they would not take back with them after the festivals.

This amazing project ended with a big salvage at Leeds Festival where our volunteers collected all the reusable tents, sleeping bags, mats and other camping equipments for some local community organisations. This year we supported organisation working with refugees, homeless people, community groups, scouts and even an organisation aiming at developing art.

For example the Sierra Leone Community in Sheffield (SLCS) explained us that the items collected will help them to organise day trips, camping and outdoor activities, in order to “improve the quality of life of Sierra Leoneans in Sheffield and to promote the well-being of its members”.

Please find below some of the feedback from the organisations we supported.

This project has been funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.
