INTERNATIONAL KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT (Japan-England Alliance)
Since 1999 Hnos. Larrinaga began to bet on a international based education. One example it’ss the participation in Look International catwalk, or the commitment to a trainin period abroad promoting the Erasmus + (formerly Leonardo Davinci) scholarships. So far, during the last academic year 15% of students performed the training practice period module in European countries.
The "International Knowledge Management" project wants to go a step further and wants to integrate this international vision continuosly in the Hnos Larrinaga training, uniting three major regions with different ways of understanding society, markets and learning methods. Basque Country, Japan and England.
This project began as a school exchange to share techniques and experiences in 2011,and it has been consolidating year after year, thanks to its strengths: the combination of exchange of specific knowledge with cultural immersion, the Basque understanding between Japanese and English cultures and the streght of the Basque Vocational Training, very attractive to the other two countries.
Every year, students from the our school actively participate in international activities celebrated in Hnos. Larrinaga both through videoconferencing, internet, etc, and physically in Bilbao, England, and also Japan in the near future.
The project has also already delivered results to Larrinaga students getting a better job placement not only in Basque Countyr, but getting jobs in international salons such as in England or Dubai.
