As the time flies really fast and all of the good things are finishing usually too early, we are already after the implementation of two-week mobility with the students from ZS CKP in Bujny.
In frame of the project, the 12-day international mobility in Greece has happened on the dates 23/04 – 04/05/2018, including:
- Professional internships in Greek enterprises in the agricultural and forestry sector, covering 10 working days, under which the methodology used consisted in incorporating non-formal education tools into formal education, to create synergy effects when combined with the theoretical knowledge acquired at school. The students gained the chance to apply the information they had in practice, which allowed them to verify their expectations and enable them to use their theoretical skills in practice.
- Cultural program, including 2 weekend days, during which participants had an opportunity to learn more about the history and culture of Greece, by introducing the Orthodox religion, visits to sites inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list, and gaining knowledge during meetings with people directly connected with important from a cultural point of view, places.
We were hosting together 35 students and among them we had 21 students studying as part of the Forestry technician. They took part in internships organized by us, in cooperation with the National Park of the Olimp Mountains, as well as experts and practitioners who care for the maintenance of natural conditions in the forests included in this facility. The participants of the project, trained as part of the forestry technician, follow the path of education implemented by the ZS CKP im. W. Witos in Bujny.
As part of the tasks performed during the stay abroad, there were: carrying out works related to protection and breeding of the forest and hunting economy; conducting activities related to nature conservation, tourism and education; performance of measurement and estimation works in stands; organization of works related to the use of forest resources.
Another 14 students were Agriculture technicians. Internships for this field of study were also organized by us and the Greek enterprise of the agri-processing sector Zeus S.A.
Among the basic categories of tasks that participants performed while being in Greece, there were: running plant production; livestock production; servicing technical means used in agriculture. All of them are part of the vocational training program for the field of farmer’s techniques also implemented by ZS CKP im. W. Witos in Bujny.
According to the evaluation process done by the end of the mobility, all of the students are really happy and satisfied – not only by staying in Greece for two weeks, but especially by being a part of the project, taking a lot of opportunities, opening minds and gaining new skills and knowledge by being abroad, working in the field of their profession. We are also more than happy by having the opportunity to be the host organization for such a wonderful children.
Thank You so much for this time and hope to see You all soon, somewhere in the world 🙂
