Three students from Wirral Met College have been awarded for their endeavours whilst taking part in the Erasmus+ programme where they gained three weeks of work experience in Malta in a variety of placements in March 2017.
The students were delighted to receive the following awards which recognise their hard work and commitment during their placements.
- Georgia Barratt: Award for best supportive student to others on mobility
- Matthew Santoro: Award for best overall mobility experience
- Matthew Forster: Award for overcoming adversity
Travel and Tourism tutor John Vallely said, “It was a great opportunity for our students to gain valuable work experience abroad with funding from the EU Erasmus+ programme, which will help our students progress in their careers.”
Erasmus+ is the European Union’s (EU) programme for education, training, youth and sport, with the EU committing £12 billion to the programme between 2014 and 2020. In the UK, the programme is managed by the Erasmus+ UK National Agency, a partnership between the British Council and Ecorys UK.
