Fourth short-term joint staff training event

Category : News

June 28 – July 2, 2021, Santarem – Portugal

We are really happy that we managed to organize the last short-term joint staff training event as a face-to-face meeting! After the long period of lockdown and the restrictions all schools had to deal with, at the very end of the project we succeeded in holding a physical mobility in Santarem, Portugal.  33 foreign participants from Bulgaria, Poland, Romania, Spain and Greece, as well as representatives of the host organization, Instituto Politécnico de Santarém, joined the trainings and shared experience about the implementation process in the participating countries. The training involved plenary sessions and simulations of training activities during which the participants took part in practical activities. So many splendid ideas about delivering the training activities! Well done guys! You have done a great job!

Instituto Politecnico de Santarem made us feel at home in Santarem, helped us see the most interesting sites in the city, and get to know and feel the way the Portuguese people live.

Last, but not least, on our way to Lisbon, we visited the amazing town of Sintra and Quinta da Regaleira.

The way back home was a real challenge for some of us – especially the ones who had connecting flights through Germany. Due to the complicated situation with the Delta variant in Portugal Germany cancelled flights from Portugal, so we had to fly to Zurich and Vienna and this took us a couple of days longer. But, finally, we all arrived back home, a bit tired, but full of wonderful memories from the great time we had in Portugal!
