1.ERASMUS POLICY STATEMENT (overall strategy).

1.1 International Strategy of the Institution.

The ESAD of Asturias, in its international strategy, aims to broaden the horizons of trade for other cultures and countries of the European environment in educational and social interest. To do this, and always within the restrictive legal framework, as it does not have the autonomy and possibilities like a university, has drawn a series of strategies seeking optimal achievement of the objectives.

We are interested in widening the horizons of trade to other cultures, we want to promote the knowledge of other languages, we want to establish educational development projects with other institutions, we want to promote mobility, making the right of free movement effective and showing students Europe as a common space of interest between different societies, glimpsing the possibility of a future career on the continent.

We also want to promote our culture and pedagogical quality, using the mobility of students and teachers as an example of the educational excellence of our institution and our country.

The Erasmus programme offers us all these opportunities.  It is a fundamental part of the internationalisation of our centre, as it provides the necessary resources and basic lines of action for modernisation.

To this end, we will establish agreements with other peer institutions, promote lifelong learning programmes for teachers and students, promote the knowledge of other languages, set up educational development projects, network with sponsors and financial institutions, take transparency measures and update information on processes curricular and recognition of mobility activities, improve student plans to accommodate mobility and management.

Our participation in the programme will enable mobilities that are pedagogically beneficial and also enable the learning of European languages, awareness of European community building, improved intercultural values, promotion of European cooperation in quality for the development of comparable criteria and methodologies, integration into the Community system of credit education, validation and recognition and promotion of the values contained in the Bologna Declaration to contribute to the construction of the European Higher Education Area.

1.2 Institutional strategy for the organisation and implementation of international cooperation projects in teaching and training related to the projects implemented under the programme.

Our institution will apply the student mobility actions for personal study and teaching, so that the strategies related to these two aspects will be applied and stimulated.

We want to improve the organisational staff to coordinate the programme in the institution with several reportable aspects:

Increase and recognition of the time commitment, because in this type of study, the coordinators are teachers of the subjects of the institution, who dedicate a small part of their time to the coordination of Erasmus. Improved resources directly applicable to the organisation of mobilities, such as the improvement and modernisation of the website, fungible resources, increase in agreements between the institution and public authorities for the provision of autonomy in the organisation of the programme.

Our participation in the program will enable mobilities that are pedagogically beneficiaries and also enable learning of European languages, an awareness of European community building, improved cross-cultural values, promotion of European cooperation in quality for development comparable criteria and methodologies, a settling into the Community system of credit education, validation and recognition and promotion of the values contained in the Bologna Declaration to contribute to the construction of the European Higher Education Area.

1.3 Institution’s strategy for the organization and implementation of international cooperation projects in teaching and training in relation to projects implemented under the Programme.

Our institution shall apply the student mobility actions for personal study and teaching, so that will be applied and incentivate the strategies related to these two aspects.

We aim to improve the organization staff to coordinate the program in the institution with several reportable aspects:

Increase and recognize the time commitment, because in this type of study, the coordinators are teachers of the subjects of the institution who devote a small portion of their time coordinating Erasmus. Improved resources directly applicable to the organization of the mobilities, such as the improvement and modernization of the website, fungible resources, increase of agreements between the institution and government agencies for the provision of autonomy in the organization of the program.

Increased operational capacity in terms of language teaching. Here we find a clear and strategic objective to achieve, and have the real ability to organize language courses for students in and out without excessive costs, and that being a Superior Artistic Centre, do not have the possibilities or that the University autonomy, but if we are to deliver the quality that the program needs. No doubt this view will increase the quality of mobilities in turn will enrich the institution, giving it greater operational capacity not only as the Erasmus programme, but its general mechanics, clear example of how this programme improves the institutions in all aspects.

Strengthening the international projection of the Centre. By getting the letter Erasmus, the Centre will strengthen what has worked in recent years and progress in the number of mobility and quality of these, as our institution, despite being a small school community, is a cultural engine, and is a perfect instrument of European cohesion through the type of education that work.

1.4 Expected impact of our participation in the programme on the modernisation of ESAD Asturias in terms of the policy objectives we intend to achieve.

The modernisation of the institutions also involves projects and objectives that, in the case of our participation in the programme, we expect that the differences we have with respect to the University as the legal framework that protects us, will be gradually reduced by programme needs. In this way, our modernisation and development will be linked to the programme.

Our studies, immersed in the programme will provide students with an international projection and maintain the need for their teaching, attracting the professionals of this art to formal education, thereby increasing artistic professionals have a formation in higher education. Currently, the number of actors without formal education, is high, the impact of these studies counting internationalisation, surely attract the higher education community in.

The quality and relevance of our studies are also conditioned to the programme, as art institutions will be equipped with the tools of those without by the legal framework. In this way, the teacher is motivated by international actions that gives us the programme, students are also encouraged to learn Europe, other cultures and get a broader vision and building real community, seeing in educational compatibility between European institutions, thus placing our institution in Europe in a more conscious form.

Funding and governance are also improved, as the institutions under which we respond to our legal framework will be institution providing the necessary tools to carry out the programme. In this way, the institution will undergo a process of modernisation that will be made possible by the impact of the implementation of the programme.

Quantitative indicators will be based on the maintenance of mobility data and its evolution.

In terms of impact, the quantitative data will be those mobilities that positively evaluate the experience in their academic training and, in the case of placements, the continuity of the post-mobility collaboration with the host company. These data will allow us to assess the real impact on the training and future employment of our students on the programme.In the case of teaching, the use of tools acquired during their mobilities for use in our institution. One of the objectives will be to participate in a K2 project, which will provide visibility, modernisation of structures and knowledge, learning for participants and future development of the content and results obtained.
