The international publication
 of the IES Algarb
This will be the window through which we will show all the multicultural experiences of our students and teachers
Our debut in international projects was in 2007, and it consisted in a student exchange with a German high school. In 2008, the first mobility took place, with Vocational Training students travelling to Poland and teachers going to London under the Leonardo Program. Since 2008, uninterrupted mobilities are being carried out. In 2014, we were elegible for the Erasmus+ Program, and our school obtained the "ECHE Charter  for Higher Education" and the "VET mobility charter" as an award for  Intermediate Vocational Training quality mobilities in 2017. In Secondary education, in addition to participating in "eTwinning", the IES Algarb entered the "Project Cities" in 2015, together with other institutes in Germany, the Netherlands, Poland and Norway. Up to now, our institution continues its process of internationalisation as a sign of educational quality.
Student mobilities
This year 2017-2018, nine of our students have completed the "training at work" module abroad. They study vocational training programmes, such as Nursery Auxiliary Care, Dietetics, Pharmacy and Parapharmacy, Hairdressing and Hair Cosmetic and Social Integration. They have been working in different companies in Finland, Italy, Poland and Germany.
During the course 2017/2018 the IES Algarb has carried out different activities in collaboration with Norway, Finland, France, Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Poland thanks to the Erasmus projects that allow exchanges of students and teachers.
