their transition from school to work. Several projects have been implemented for students to take

practical applications (mentoring, job shadow, entrepreneurial workshops) have contributed to a
better insertion in today’s market labor. In partnership with other schools and associations the school

”Jobs” with activities centered on students’ personal developing and providing mentoring on the

recognition of the educational management quality and the impact of European projects on
organisational culture and school ethos. Motivation to start this project: Youth unemployment in
Romania continues to be challenging and our involvement in this project will allow us to look
outwards at how other countries’ education systems prepare young people for employment and how
the delivery of vocational curriculum links to employment opportunities. A team of young teachers
with experience in project management gained by participating to several European projects and
competent in foreign languages and ICT is responsible for the implementation of this Erasmus
project. In case one of the team members leaves their position the headmaster will be in charge of
the substitution needed.
