International Mobility Initiative

A group of Greek teachers visited Pixel

In the framework of the international mobility initiative named after “Exchange of Good Practices to deal with Racism and Discrimination within the School” funded by the Erasmus+ Programme, 6 Greek teachers from a vocational school in Kilkis (Greece) spent a week in Florence, at Pixel, between 18 and 22 March 2024. The objective of the Mobility Initiative was to give participants the opportunity to: acquire a better understanding of the Italian and Tuscan Education and Training system; acquire knowledge about the current policies and strategies for tackling racism and discrimination in secondary education; acquire information about how the Italian Education and Training systems are organized and managed in Italy and in Tuscany in particular; share best practices in reducing racism and discrimination in secondary vocational education; develop new contacts and explore opportunities of cooperation with public and private institutions operating in the Educational and Training system in Tuscany. During the mobility initiative, a training course was organized by Pixel as well as meetings between the Greek group and school directors, teachers, managers of training institutions and public key policy makers operating in the education system.
