Project Promoter: Liceul Tehnologic ”Mihai Eminescu” Dumbrăveni

Project Code: 2021-EY-PCVET-0024

Partners: APLICAPROPOSTA LDA BragaMob (PT) –  ESCOLA PROFISSIONAL DE BRAGA (PT) – António Ferreira Rito & Filhos (PT) – Casa das Jantes (PT)


As per the school curriculum, students are required to learn operations at school that are no longer commonplace in modern factories equipped with automated technological lines. The theoretical and practical concepts taught in school, such as saw cuts, riveting, and wood chip processing, do not align with the demands of technological economic agents seeking skilled labor. Hence, the primary aim of the project is to enhance the quality of internships at the economic agent concerning new technologies in the field of mechanics, facilitating swift integration into the labor market.

During the 5-day study visit to Portugal organized by Bragamob, participants identified best practices and gained insights from Portuguese counterparts on improving hands-on learning in the workplace for students from the “Mihai Eminescu” Dumbrăveni Technological High School. They learned how to bridge the gap between theoretical concepts learned in school and practical activities at the economic agent. The project yielded several products, including: 3 new Curriculum Development Licenses (CDLs) for the field of mechanics that integrate theoretical concepts related to new technologies with the economic agent’s reality (for classes IX, X, and XI); 3 practice manuals for the proposed CDLs (for 9th, 10th, and 11th grades); 3 specialized assessments (for 9th, 10th, and 11th grades); and two questionnaires for evaluating practical training courses (one at the project’s outset and one at its conclusion). The project results significantly impact by aligning theoretical knowledge from school with the economic agent’s requirements for new technologies, thereby enhancing the quality of practical training courses at both the school and economic agent levels.
