Target group of the project are vocational teachers and students of 2 vocational fields- computer aided design operators and interior decorators, using in their work ICT. In the 21st century, while there are so many changes in technologies and development of the knowledge society, requirements for individuals working and studying in the field of ICT are growing very fast. New computer programs are being implemented in vocational training process and it encourages individuals to continuously improve their competencies. In the Strategic plan of the school for the year 2014-2016 is noted that it is foreseen to reconstruct infrastructure of art and computer departments at school in order to improve teaching quality and to increase its attractiveness. Therefore ICT teachers need to acquire new skills and knowledge related to the newest and modern computer equipment, tools and programs applied in European vocational schools and companies and to search for new ways of adapting them to Lithuanian vocational training institutions in order to ensure successful integration of students into labor market. In addition to labor market conditions and high professional qualification requirements, employers are looking for workers who would be able to adapt, integrate and change together with alteration in society. Much attention is paid to the knowledge of foreign language and personal characteristics such as responsibility, independence, sociability, creativity, ability to work in team. Lifelong learning increases human capital, therefore schools have to encourage their students to participate in training and development regardless of age because of rapid changing working environment. Vocational schools in Lithuania try to improve the quality of training, but its quality lags behind the EU in terms of ICT training. In addition, vocational schools in Lithuania do not have such advanced IC technologies, which are being used in EU countries' vocational schools and enterprises. In order to meet the needs of students, it is necessary to enable them to acquire advanced and most professional experience working with computer hardware, software and tools, and to expand their ICT competencies. Aims of the project : 1. To get acquainted with the latest computer hardware and software, used in vocational schools and companies in EU countries and acquire practical knowledge of ICT technologies to promote learning motivation and training effectiveness in Lithuania ; 2. To strengthen general competencies of hearing impaired students and to ensure their successful integration into society; 3. To improve foreign language skills of teachers and students (fo hearing impaired students- international sign language)and their intercultural awareness. 10 teachers and 20 students (including 4 students with hearing disabilities ) will participate in project mobilities. They will not only observe practical training of ICT, get acquainted with the latest computer technologies and software, but also will have the possibility to practice on computer innovations (3D and 4D images, the latest Adobe Photoshop ,CorelDRaw, Illustrator, Autoarch , ASCII, MuLab 5, Arcon programs). Implemented mobilities will have direct impact on students' and teachers' personal development, because their knowledge in using ICT will be expanded and intercultural awareness will be achieved. During mobilities students and teachers will improve foreign language skills as well (hearing impaired students - international sign language skills) and they will learn to adapt to the new working environment. This will contribute to the meeting of their linguistic competence needs. Gained practical knowledge and skills will be directly adapted and used in theoretical and practical lessons in sending organization -participants will prepare visual learning material with pictures, links, short specifications etc. Total number of students with hearing disabilities in the project will contribute to their successful socialization in society. Mobilities of students will be credited as continuous practice, staff mobilities will be recognized as qualification period abroad.
