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:

Exhibitions:

● 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.

In February, a group of students from Kirklees College in Huddersfield took part in a Vocational Education Training (VET) project in Martinique. During two weeks they were involved in activities organised by our partner Youth In The Town (Jeunesse Dans La Ville); teaching various sports to young people and coaching them.

During their project they produced many powerful videos to share the impact that this project had on them and giving details about what they learnt personally and professionally: Seven VET trainees share their experience in Martinique
