Recently a group of our students returned from the south of France from a three week Erasmus work placement. A total of seven students qualified for the placement from our Agriculture, Horticulture and Motor Technology Departments. Our students were based in a college near the city of Nimes. From there, they worked on a vineyard and in a local Garden Centre which is a supplier of plants throughout Europe. This project was funded under the Erasmus + program and students were paid a daily allowance plus their travel expenses.
The college plans to send over 80 students in the next two years on paid placement to Iceland, Estonia, Denmark, France, Spain and Portugal. We are now accepting applications for all full time courses online at www.westportcfe.ie.
