David Campbell Event Management is a leading sports education, football and coaching organisation that delivers impactful programmes and engages disadvantaged youths. Those limited by social demographic can enjoy life-changing opportunities that allow them to gain industry-recognised qualifications, work experience, skills and confidence. Recently, the company facilitated the Broadening Horizons For Life Erasmus+ mobility project that took learners from the UK to Spain.
The learners gained many cultural insights – did you know that placing a marrow in a trophy is a tradition in the region of Murcia? Or that the amphitheatre in the ancient city of Cartagena has only recently been discovered? And what about the tiles making up the mosaic walkway – did you know that there are over 6 million of them?
The PowerPoint presentation can be used as a resource by educators and their learners who are considering or completing mobility projects of their own to provide inspiration and show the benefits of Erasmus+ projects. It acts as a kind of photo album with descriptions of the events taking place over the course of the trip, providing plenty of images to facilitate meaningful discussion. It may be particularly appealing to those who want to create a project reflection of their own.
The resource is free to download and can be adapted to reflect the user’s own project.
