Our ECP students, teachers and staff have the opportunity to carry out, free of charge, internships, training and exchanges in schools and companies throughout Europe! Our “Be My Guest” (KA1) and cooperation (KA2) projects, funded by the Erasmus+ Program, create opportunities to travel and learn in countries such as Spain, Germany, Denmark or the Netherlands, and live unique and enriching experiences.
Projects eTwinning bring Europe into ECP classrooms through cooperation in international teamwork. From Spain to North Macedonia, there are several countries that, at a distance, have created and implemented didactic, innovative and multicultural activities with our students and teachers in multiple curricular areas!
ECP is a school to, for and with Europe, and therefore we implement several international activities internally, from welcoming foreign mobility teachers and students, to celebrating European festive dates, without forgetting the participation of our students and teachers in international events, contests and networks.
Escola de Comércio do Porto intends to base its action on the following pillars:
Promotion of innovative educational practices
Students skills development
Organization’s internationalization process
The Internationalization Strategy systematizes the various aspects of the international dimension of this institution’s action plan, such as ECP’s activities and projects, objectives, functioning, results, vision and partnerships.
European Parliament Ambassador School
ECP is an Ambassador School of the European Parliament [EPAS], thus integrating the network of institutions from the 27 Member States of EU that develop continuous activities within the scope of this pedagogical project which aims to raise awareness about the opportunities, importance and functioning of the European citizenship and its institutions.
