Last Thursday, 14th December, within the Info Week organized by the Vice President Office for Internationalization of La Laguna University, different informative lectures were given to students on mobility and Erasmus for the coming 2018/19 academic year. Regarding these talks, the presentation of the Talented Europe project (platform for young- people employment), took place in the Assembly Hall of the Faculty of Journalism. This presentation was made by one of the project coordinators, Héctor Barrios, Computer Department professor in CIFP César Manrique.
Talented Europe has as main objectives to facilitate and promote the incorporation into the labour market of talented young Europeans and offer companies the opportunity to integrate these young people into their projects and business plans. Hector explained how it works and the possibility of registering them in both web support and apps, which are already available for mobile devices. Talented Europe will allow them to contact talented students from educational institutions across Europe with companies and employers.
This project was born in 2015 and was presented as an Erasmus+ KA203 project (Strategic Partnerships for Higher Education) together with several European partners. It is coordinated by professors from CIFP César Manrique Information Technology( IT) Department, in collaboration with the teaching staff from Telesforo Bravo and Puerto de la Cruz high schools. It was selected in its announcement by the SEPIE (Spanish Service for the Internationalization of Education) and is the only approved project coordinated by a vocational training center in Spain.
