International Projects



Each year a number of students from St. John’s Central College are given the opportunity to participate in work placement in other European Union countries. This activity is funded by the European Union’s Erasmus + (KA1) program through the Irish national agency Léargas. Our partner countries in this activity include Germany, France, The Netherlands, Spain, Hungary, Turkey and Slovenia. Students from each of our partner colleges also come to Cork on work placement with St. John’s Central College hosting their stay.

We are also actively involved in both Student and Teacher projects funded under the Erasmus + (KA2) program. These include school partnership projects and projects involving the development of educational strategies and products. The development of International projects is an ongoing process and forms a part of the internationalisation strategy of the college. Enthusiastic student involvement is essential to the success of these projects.
