Marianao center will be able to develop KA121 Projects after having submitted in October 2021 the application to be accredited with a KA120 project.
The KA120 accreditation is a tool that ensures the capacity of institutions in the development of high quality mobility activities that serve for the improvement of the organization itself.
To be accredited, organizations must design a structured and long-term plan, called the Erasmus Plan, and all activities must comply with Erasmus quality standards. The Marianao center designed this Erasmus Plan that was approved by the National agency SEPIE and this accreditation2021-1-ES01-KA120-VET-000043284 will last 5 years, until 2027.
The accreditation gives access to KA121 projects, so that the centers that have received it can permanently participate in Erasmus projects for VET courses with these type of projects.
The students who will participate in this project will develop tasks altogether with the Danish students from Roskilde Tekniske Skole who will visit Marianao school during 13th-17th February 2023 and from 5th-15th March 2023, when the students from Marianao's school selected for the trip will visit the Danish school.
The aim of the tasks developed will be to improve the students' digital skills and to present projects which will have as their final objective to master the organization of a warehouse and to observe the main aspects of a storage logistic of a large company, combining innovation, creativity and sustainability making as an improvement proposal the use of drones to optimize the control and monitoring of the goods.

The aim of the tasks developed will be to identify the industrial and commercial network from the companies visited during the mobility activities and located in the students' cities, to identify the skills required by these companies so the professional profile of the our students will improve.
Our project is based on the design of a common gadget with the function of recycling materials that will be developed thanks to the cooperation among the three branches of the VET training cycles that the centers develops, Mechatronics and Mechanic Design, Trade, and IT. These gadgets will be commercialize by the students of Trade and IT courses, and will be produced by the students of mechanical fabrication with the 3D programs that they usually use in the classrooms.
The project aims to create a network between the participating centers to compare ideas, practices and methods to improve the following skills:
Environmental sustainability is the main theme of our project from which students will work, dealing with zero kilometer agricultural products in the areas where students live and using recyclable materials in the activities.
Support the development of the students’ language skills, explicitly English, as it will be used throughout all the project, also in the final presentations made by the students about:
Learning to use the software which will be used in the classrooms throughout all the project.
Support the development of competences in Vocational cycles therefore support the validation process of knowledges, competences and abilities acquired by means of the project.
