European project

The Comenius project was initially instigated as a means to develop teaching and learning skills and experiences within a wider framework. The scheme has developed into a European funded project involving staff and students from all the colleges listed below.

Following the success of the first project, we have now progressed in application discussions with a further seven potential partners. This will create a second European project application involving countries including Spain, Turkey and Romania and will focus on electrical safety, first aid and hazard prevention and will result in Europass documentation which is recognised in 27 countries.
