Welcome to the LIFE Project

An Erasmus Plus Project

LIFEHow can schools prepare their students better for the labour market? How can local companies find better employers and grow in an international market?

LIFE stands for Linking Interests For Europe. We will try to link the interests of our students, schools and our local companies in our Erasmus Plus Project. Our students will be trained in marketing and will visit local companies in other countries, which they will promote later at a market fair at their own school in their own country. The local companies will get promotional material in four different languages and will get the opportunity to meet future employers and will get publicity abroad.
