This is the reliable way to spread and disseminate the cause and the result of the project. Vocational aid institutions, distinct youth welfare office of the Vulkaneifel, the vocational school of the Vulkaneifel district and our school organise regular campaigns to support students, to find a job – to avoid school dropout and to prevent early school leaving, complying with the All.in Ed project’s aims.
In Austria the team was able to impress upon a private school in Vienna, MS und PTS Sankt Marien, which was inspired by the All-in Ed project. The headmaster was also very helpful with the programme for the 2nd Transnational Meeting in Bad Vöslau, by offering a guided tour of the school and providing the facilities for the final team meeting in Vienna. On the occasion, contacts were established to promote new Erasmus endeavours between the Al-in Ed partners and a local teacher, who will be assigned as new Erasmus Coordinator.
