The
Global Skills Network was created in response to the growing demand for a competent
and dedicated service provider to design learning exchanges and transnational mobility.
Since 2003, we have partnered in lifelong learning programmes by organising,monitoring
and certifying a wide range of projects - from internships and work experience to training,
VETPRO and cross-border collaboration. We are the premier transnational project
management specialists for Erasmus+ and lifelong learning in Catalonia,
headquartered in the Mediterranean's most vibrant city - Barcelona!

..
Throughout our our 16+ year history
of partnering in lifelong learning,
twe have forged strong relationships
with businesses, nonprofits and the
public sector in order to customize
work experience programming that
fits a student's field of study. Our
Internships, Work Experience and
Volunteerism projects can last from
four weeks to 12 months, targeted
at students ages 15-35. We can
accommodate cohorts of up to 20
students at a time - larger groups
are divided into seasonal flows.


Our dedicated beneficiary welfare

officers and tutors serve as a liaison
between the intern and the host
company to resolve any problems
that might arise in the work
environment, and all students
receive a certificate and Europass
upon successful completion of the
programme. While most of our
placements are with local organizations
and businesses, we are specialists in
English-language and German-language
placements in international working

environments and the use of technology,
for working in digital environments.
VETPRO
VETPRO programming is directed
toward faculty and staff as professional
development and relationship-building
exercises with colleagues and peers. A
VETPRO project is first and foremost
a journey that enhances skills while
accessing best practices and
innovation to take back to a participant's
country of origin and put into practice.

Projects involving professional or

technical visits are conducted in English
with an interpreter available to translate
from Spanish or Catalan presentations
given by the host company. Groups are
limited to 20 participants.Trade Missions
can be organised for participants from
most countries, regardless of member-
ship in the EU or EEA. Barcelona is a
great destination for innovation, being
named one of the five top cities in the
world prepared for the future and home
to the Smart Cities Expo World Congress
and Mobile World.
Training courses can be delivered in
our co-work location in Barcelona,
online or in a hybrid format - half
online, half in Barcelona, and are
managed by our partners at
Knowledge Building in Action.
Coursework is designed by
instructional design specialists
according to the latest adult learning
theories, and are intended for adult
education trainers and teachers,
researchers, e-facilitators, project
managers and training coaches.

Training courses can be combined
with professional visits for a complete
learning experience. Courses are in
various languages with native speakers,
with most of the courses in English. Our
specialty is creating coursework for
entrepreneurship and mindset training
as per the EntreComp framework while
creating bridges for access to
entrepreneurial ecosystems. Visit our

About Barcelona.....
Barcelona is an excellent destination for people of ages to enjoy.
Situated on the Mediterranean Sea, Barcelona as a cosmopolitan
city is full of museums,theatres and cinemas, extensive nightlife,
and a wide range of sport activities. The diverse range of commerce
and industry present in this region of Spain make Barcelona an
excellent place for work, study, rest, play and inter-cultural exchange.

Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, an area that is bustling with
first
rate tourism and has a long tradition of international commerce.In fact,
this area of Spain was the number one tourist destination for several
years. Being directly on the Mediterranean mitigates against extreme
weather, especially in the winter months. We enjoy weather
unparalleled in the rest of the European continent – it rarely snows
in the city.

Talk about innovation! Catalonia is attracting more R&D investments

than any other area in Spain, is the Mediterranean / Southern Europe’s
hotbed for Innovation, and is recognized as home to technology and
global industries. Barcelona is home to the Mobile World Congress
and the Smart Cities Expo. Shp2B accelerates and invests in startups
that have a social impact. Barcelona Institute for the Habitat supports
economic, social and urban planning. Barcelona Tech City/Pier 01 in
Palau de Mar, Accenture's analystics center, European Institute of
Innovation and Technology InnoLife consortium, Ajec and the
Catalunya Apps Association of digital companies and professionals
\
are all headquartered in Barcelona.

There are several mature entrepreneurial ecosystems and innovation

centers in our region and others in close proximity, such as the
public/private partnership Barcelona Net Activa business incubator
and entrepreneurship ecosystem, with several smaller ecosystems
and co-working spaces focused on specialized groups such as
women, disabled, specific sectors of technology, etc., as well
as those in nearby provinces like Valencia, Castellon and Aragon,
and acrossthe Iberian peninsula including Portugal.
   -
With a population of about 5.5 million located throughout the city and

suburbs, Barcelona is stretched out on a plain on the northern corner
of Spain´s Mediterranean coast, referred to as the Costa Dorada. The
city is a blend of modern and medieval, progress and traditionalism,
and typically Mediterranean in cuisine and culture. It is the most
cosmopolitan and economically active city in Spain and on the
Mediterranean Sea. The expansion of the city, which really started
with the demolition of the walls that surrounded Old Town in the
mid-1800s, was just the beginning of urban renewal projects that
would transform Barcelona. The Universal Exhibition of 1888, the
International Exhibition of 1929,and the Olympic Games of 1992
all created new districts and structures, new communications
networks and better services in a metropolitan area that has
become one of the most progressive and commercially sophisticated
in Europe - the epitome of cosmopolitan living!
We look forward to welcoming you to our hometown!

We build and maintain partnerships
for cross-border collaborations in
Europe, the European Union/EEA
and Mediterranean regions that
includes the Middle East and
Northern Africa.  When preparing
a joint project proposal, our staff
delves deep in the issues to assure
the proposal addresses a challenge -
the WHY - with activities that can
overcome a constraint - the causes
and effects of a problem - and
highlights the cross-border relevance
of the solution being proposed. We
are a projct's communicators with
native-English speakers for keeping
the partners informed from the
beginning of brining the partners
together for planning through the
proposal preparation and during
the implementation and
dissemination phases.  .

One Plan 4 One Planet focuses on
entrepreneurship for social impact
and innovation. With most of our
centralized themes felt most acutely
by people who have been historically
marginalized, telling their stories is
key to eliciting empathy towards
bringing people together in
collaboration. Storytelling frames
needs in powerful messages to
connect us, engage us and bring to
life the various challenges we are
collectively attempting to solve. It
is also the path toward sharing stories
far and wide through the most popular
online social media platforms, as well as
other communities engendering a sharing
culture, and the popular media ​as well
