Erasmus “Open Your Mind” Project October 2021

After 2 years of COVID we finally got to participate in Erasmus again. In October 2021 we sent 15 students to Malaga from Hairdressing, Beauty Therapy, Childcare, Applied Social Studies, Creative Media, Complementary Therapy and Business Administration. This mobility will allow students from North Tipperary and surrounding environs a chance to experience living abroad to train and upskill in their area of expertise.

Here at TCFE we seek to promote a sense of European and global citizenship in students by fostering an international culture across the college community with the help of Erasmus that will help students understand the global context of their studies, how they can transfer their qualification to another country and enable them to operate effectively in international professional environments.

TCFE would hope that students participating in the mobility would find it more attractive and realistic to move between the different countries and learning environments that the European Union has to offer especially with the unknown of Brexit. We would also hope that students would gain an insight into some of the cultural differences and similarities of our European neighbours.
