Borrisokane Community College has been involved in Erasmus+ Projects since September 2016. These projects are funded by the European Union and provide opportunities for students and teachers from different countries to become involved in an educational project. This usually includes an opportunity to travel but can be virtual too. We have previously worked with partner schools from Germany, Poland, Norway, Lithuania and Spain.
Over the course of the two previous Erasmus+ projects, different groups of teachers and students visited each of the countries involved in the project. Borrisokane Community College also played host to students and teachers from all partner schools in January 2018 and November 2019.
The following link brings you to a report on the visit from local Lithuanian press. Lithuanian Report on Irish Visit.
Full details of our previous projects are available at the following links:
We take part in Léargas Erasmus+ schools week each year to promote the programme and share our results with the school community.
This academic year we stepped up to lead our own Erasmus+ project called Europe Evolving past present and future. This has been very successful so far with two virtual mobilities enjoyed by staff and students alike. We are working with Spain, Germany, Norway and Lithuania and we launched our website on May 19th 2021 – Click Here.
