Mobility Department

our story so far, our mission and numbers

ECTE has been implementing European Mobility Programs, such as Leonardo da Vinci, Erasmus, IdA and international private placements since the beginning of the 90s. These programs come under the Mobility Actions for Young workers or unemployed, trainers, educators, people involved in the initial or further vocational training programs, and people from vulnerable social groups. Mobility Programs give the opportunity to individuals to improve their labour qualifications and to enrich their professional experience.

In the frame of mobility programs, more than 5.000 young people (and counting…) have been trained in Rethymno from Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and United Kingdom.

  • Ringrazio infinitamente la Camera Di Commercio Maremma e Tirreno per avermi concesso questa opportunita’. Grazie a questo Erasmus sono cresciuta professionalmente e personalmente. Ho conosciuto persone nuove con cui ho stabilito un belissimo rapporto e ho avuto modo di entrare a contatto con una realta’ diversa. Portero’ Rethymno sempre nel mio cuore.

    Participant from Italy
  • Mobility is a daunting task at first, and it seems much more scary before you go. Give yourself time to settle in and you wont regret it! Such an amazing experience, ask anyone who has done it!

    Participant from Belgium
  • Go for it! Best period I ever had!

    Participant from Belgium
  • Sie sind sehr freundlich und nehmen sich fuer dich und deine Anliegen Zeit. Ich bin sehr dankbar sie zu kennen und ich werde diese großartige Zeit in Rethymno niemals vergessen.

    Participant from Germany
  • If I had the chance, I'd do it all over again – an absolute experience for anyone

    Participant from Italy
  • Ich habe bei ECTE in Büromanagement gearbeitet und es war eine wunderbare Zeit mit euch. Ich danke euch, dass ihr mir geholfen habt mich schnell in Rethymno einzuleben und mich wohl zu fühlen und dass ihr mir Orte gezeigt habt in denen Touristen normalerweise nicht hinkommen oder nicht kennen!

    Participant from Germany
  • Always maintain an open mind and don't get too disillusioned with things: they usually work themselves out. Bon chance!

    Participant from France
  • Non puoi sperare di meglio se non ti poni grandi obbiettivi, un'esperienza fantastica con persone fantastiche che, ti fanno sentire come a casa.

    Participant from Italy
  • Enjoy every last moment of your time here in Rethymnon. Be open to meet your neighbours and other foreign students, and then this will be one of the most worthwhile, challenging, growning, advancing, overwhelming and enjoyable time of your life!

    Participant from Finland
  • Sono felicissimo di aver avuto questa fantastica opportunita, qui a Rethymno. I nostri tutor sono stati molto disponibili nei nostri riguardi, sicuramente un esperienza indimenticabile. Questa citta rimarra sempre nel mio cuore.

    Participant from Italy
  • The student life in Rethymno is fantastic! It's a city where students are more than the local people and that means that it's full of life!

    Katja Palén (Finland)
  • Rethymno e’ una citta bellissima in cui abbiamo alloggiato volentieri. La ecte e’ un’ associazione con persone molto disponibili e preparate, stella e rodos ci hanno aiutato per qualsiasi problema che abbiamo avuto. Grazie di tutto.

    Participant from Italy
  • There are taverns that are full of students, in which you can eat, drink and dance spending a very small amount of money. Most of them have live music every Friday and Saturday night and there you will listen to contemporary Greek music and dance.

    Celeste Conacari (Italy)
  • Mobility broadens your perspective. Really recommend it!

    Participant from UK
  • Algo que nos impactó cuando llegamos fue que cualquier día de la semana se creaba un gran ambiente a la vez que tranquilo y seguro.

    Participant from Spain
  • Es war eine tolle Erfahrung und ich bin froh die Leute von Ecte kennengelernt zu haben, da sie mir in jeder Situiation geholfen haben und für mich mehr als Kollegen wurden.

    Participant from Spain
  • E’ stata una bellissima esperienza, le persone che abbiamo incontrato qui sono state molto brave e premurose con noi. Siamo molto contenti e torniamo a casa con un ricordo bellissimo.

    Participant from Italy
  • Try your best – you can easily integrate with the Greek people and the culture.

    Participant from France
  • Rethymno is a very beautiful city, next to the sea, big enough to offer you a lot of choices and small enough so you can reach every part of it on foot or by bike.

    Matteo Scarcia (Italy)
  • No olvidaremos a todas las personas que hemos conocido como el trato que nos llevamos de ellas. Algún día volveremos.
