Sligo and Kempten vocational partnership

Sligo College of Further Education has established a partnership with the Vocational College based in Kempten, Germany, twin town of Sligo.

This partnership is funded through the Erasmus+ programme and will see an exchange of PLC students between the two colleges for work experience purposes.

Three teachers from the Fachakademie in Kempten visited the college last week to make preparations for the first exchange students who will visit Sligo in February and conduct their work experience in local créches throughout Sligo.

This partnership will further strengthen the close ties which have been established between the two towns in recent years. The guests were formally welcomed to Sligo by Mayor Marie Casserly.

Pictured at Sligo City Hall were Rita Fuchs Lagasse (Erasmus coordinator), Anna Reischmann (Distance Learning) and Waltraud Stehmer-Gomm (Psychology teacher).
