Connecting Europe: European Exchange Programme
El Regato Ikastetxea offers an exchange programme in Europe. Students are placed with a host family and attend a local school, which allows them to be immersed in the country culture, language and society. The enriching experience of living and learning with people from another country helps them broaden their minds and understand their own reality from various perspectives.
The Connecting Europe Programme is available for Secondary Education students (students aged 13 to 16) and it's divided in two parts.
1) Stay at the foreign country.
2) Welcome and stay of exchange students by the local families.
El Regato and the foreign country school agree on the date of the exchange and organise an activity program in keeping with the students’ academic needs, which includes in–school activities, as well as cultural outings. Students are at all times accompanied by a tutor. In El Regato, foreign students follow a similar schedule—they take part in an array of special activities, such as, workshops, short trips, etc.
We currently have an exchange agreement with the following schools:
Italy: Istituto Comprensivo Daniele Spada (Sovere)
Students could also spend a week or ten days school stay in Dublin. Furthermore, El Regato Ikastetxea has partners to promote stays for a year or term abroad (The United States, Canada, England…).
