INS ILLA DELS BANYOLS MEASURES TO SUPPORT, PROMOTE AND RECOGNISE STAFF MOBILITY:
Support and promotion of staff mobility:
- INS Illa dels Banyols attaches great importance to support and promote teaching staff mobility and exchange projects. Consequently, information on staff mobility is fully provided and enhanced at different staff meetings and also spread to the Heads of each Department for further discussion. Once the information is given, and staff enquires further about it, the International Mobility Office organises seminars to give in-depth information. Furthermore, we also have a specific section on our website where we regularly publish our experiences on staff exchanges and their execution, including visual information and multimedia files.
- Another measure adopted by our institution to support and promote staff mobility is by the effective use of opinion surveys. We get participants to fill in a questionnaire the beginning and at the end of the mobility period. This resource allows us to examine in an unbiased way a number of aspects related to the mobility activities we organise, and thus formulate proposals for improvement. Teachers, in turn, are left to reflect on the benefits of their training experience abroad.
Recognition of staff mobility activities:
- INS Illa dels Banyols ensures that staff are given recognition for their teaching and training activities undertaken during the mobility period, based on a partnership. In order to record knowledge and skills acquired in another European country, our institution issues an official certificate, signed by the Principal, showing the following data: participant’s name, place, dates of the mobility period, and a comprehensive description of the activity. Whenever possible, we also ask the HEI partner to issue a Certificate of Participation.
