The project will have a significant impact on students, teachers, local communities, marking an improvement of relations between all educational factors. School will become more attractive to students and will involve parents in school's activities.
Students will learn more about their personal qualifications. They will be able to recognize the appropriate options for themselves and understand the relationship between their options and education/ training and business. Thus, they will plan their own future more consciously. On the other hand, they will enjoy coming to school and fell inspired to get involved in project activities.
Teachers will recognize the importance of their role in career planning and will become more willing to be students' advisors. On the other hand, they will be able to prepare and implement new Erasmus+ projects, with multiple benefits for their students and for their personal development .
