At international level, Deltion College has developed a European network with partners in Germany, Sweden, Austria, England, Italy, Spain and Portugal. These activities are pursued as part of European projects, including Leonardo da Vinci and Grundtvig.
Our international partners include Southgate College London, Belfast Metropolitan College and MTU Maintenance in Hannover. Students from several units spend their practical training period abroad.
Leonardo da Vinci programme
The objective of the EU Leonardo da Vinci programme is to improve the quality of vocational training in the EU by means of international collaboration, pilot projects and mobility programmes. The programme offers subsidies for students to complete a work placement offered by companies in a different EU Member State. The subsidies are only available for work placements that meet the requirements of a structural collaborative agreement, which are entered into by one or more educational institutions and the business community.
