About the Erasmus + project in english

Erasmus + KA 1 2017-2019

The adult education centers taking part in our consortium are located in the cities: Alingsås, Borås, Essunga, Falkenberg, Falköping, Lysekil, Varberg, Lidköping, Uddevalla, Skövde, Strömstad, Sötenäs, Tanum, Munkedal and Trollhättan/Vänersborg.

The project stems from our members experiences and common areas in need of development. Leading up to our application Westum assessed the needs of our members and decided to build the project around three common and comprehensive areas for development:

1) Relevant and flexible education 2) Integration and intercultural competence 3) A strong connection between education and labour market

We have also chosen to focus on those educational programmes and areas where we can find common denominators and where we see the greatest need for development within our consortium:

1) Technology and sustainable development 2) Health and Welfare 3) Trade and Tourism 4) Information and communication technology as a pedagogical tool 5) ”Swedish for immigrants” education connected to a trade 6) Creative industries

All of our mobilities should be within one of these focus areas and adress at least one of our overarching areas for development. Westum is applying for a total of 229 mobilities where 112 are reserved for students.

Westum is the coordinating partner and has the overall financial and administrative responsibility. Each adult education centre also has an Erasmus+ contact person who takes care of the contact with the participants in regards to preparatory activities, writing learning agreements etc., follow up of the mobilities and dissemination activities.

The project aims to adress the challenges faceing our region and result in a higher level of quality in the vocational education we provide. We also want to see a higher level of understanding for other cultures, staff members more open to modernisation and internationalisation and students developing their proffessional and personal characters abroad.
