  • The Erasmus experience of this centre Through a stable and experienced internal structure, supported by multiple cooperation protocols with regional entities/companies, EPL´s project aimed, in a national and European context and within the scope of its internationalisation process, to achieve the technical improvement and the personal and professional development of students, new graduates and education related people/staff, as well as to promote a fast integration of young people into the labour market, both in Portugal and abroad. After 3 years since the beginning of the project´s implementation, we can confirm our beliefs, taking into account both the tangible and intangible results achieved and the data collected/testimonies from the participants, highlighting the mobility activities allowed them the chance of strenghening their learning process, offering, in addition, a new perspective on: • working methodologies and techniques – and, in the case of the Staff training abroad mobilities, teaching/learning/assessment tools; • globalisation, inherent to the very nature of these types of mobility and, consequently; • a real transition to a geographically wider labour market, hence, more likely to ensure success and professional development.
