Training courses / GSD Vocational Training

European Mobility Program

Erasmus Policy Statement

GSD organizes mobility programs with the support of European Union agencies. These programs allow us to offer our students places subsidized with European funds so that they can carry out internships in companies in EU countries. These programs, at this stage called Erasmus+ (2021-2027), are aimed at students of Intermediate, Advanced Levels and Postgraduate courses.

The project is part of the center's educational strategy, since our mission is to assist people in their development and training in the different stages of life, in order to improve society.

From the very beginning, we have always been committed to developing educational projects and creating employment from a social economy model. Our vision is to consolidate the GSD cooperative group by promoting its growth and being recognized nationally and internationally for our dynamism, quality services, capacity for innovation and continuous improvement, as well as job creation.

Transnational mobility is a fundamental objective within our cooperative, to such an extent that we have an International Relations department, responsible for finding and organising exchanges with other schools during the school year, as well as speci?c summer courses and trips with visits to vocational training centres. Our hope is to also have European students come to carry out their workplace training here, which will allow us to establish relationships with other educational centres, promoting the professional development of the teachers involved. For the innovation and continuous improvement of production processes in Europe, it is essential to have an educational system that is interrelated with the companies and countries of a Europe in continual integration.

    The specific objectives of our international project are:
  • To make lifelong learning and mobility of future professionals a reality.
  • To improve the quality and efficiency of education and training.
  • Promote equity, social cohesion and active citizenship.
  • Increase creativity and innovation at all levels of education and training, promoting basic skills as well as initiative, leadership, interpersonal and entrepreneurship skills.

Transnational mobility is a fundamental objective in our cooperative, so much so that we have an International Relations Department.

    • Develop the skills acquired, using another language.
    • Develop themselves in another country.
