Jun 06th 2022

We are happy to inform you that this year we were approved two Erasmus + projects KA1 – Student mobility project named “Innovative practical teaching” (2012-1-RS01-KA122-VET-000016675) and KA2 – small partnerships project named “Acquisition of new knowledge and experience on examples of good practice – education of students in the field of secondary vocational of agricultural schools” (2021-1-RS01-KA210-VET-000032909) Biotechnology School “Sumatovac” from Aleksinac, Serbia is the holder of both projects.

The first part of the student mobility project was held in Sandanski, Bulgaria. Ten students and two mentors from Biotechnology School spent two weeks this May working on a farm and learning about Bulgarian language and culture. The second part of the project is planned for September/October 2022 and it will engage ten more students and two teachers.

The small partnerships project is a union of three vocational green schools: Biotechnology School “Sumatovac” from Aleksinac, Serbia, Biotechnical School from Maribor, Slovenia and Gospodarska School from Čakovec, Croatia. This project involves practical teaching and acquiring skills in strawberry production, wine production and apple chips production. The first part of the project was organized in Serbia from May 15th to May 21st and included seven students and two teachers from each school.  Students from Slovenia and Croatia were able to learn a lot about hydroponic strawberry production as well as Serbian culture and customs. Project activities will continue in October 2022 in Slovenia where wine production will be taught and the final activities will be held in November in Croatia where apple chips production will be presented to all the participants.
