GTI was one of the first PLC colleges in Ireland to be awarded the Erasmus+ Mobility Charter by Léargas. This Charter recognised the operational capacity of GTI to plan, manage and implement high quality mobility projects for learners and staff. Studies show that a period spent abroad not only enriches students’ lives in the academic field but also in the acquisition of intercultural skills and self-reliance. Staff exchanges have similar beneficial effects, both for the people participating and for the home and host

GTI has established work placements links with a number of partner colleges in Europe including Finland, Italy, France, Portugal, Poland,Turkey, Spain and UK. These work placements offer our students a wonderful opportunity to develop their cultural and educational expertise while also completing a work placement in their vocational area. It is a unique learning experience for GTI learners and one they embrace fully as it allows them to develop skills and knowledge they may use in the future.
