Easton College is a proud to be partner in two international projects funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. Our involvement in these projects enables us to contribute to, and learn from, the development of agricultural training at an international level. The links Easton College has with agricultural schools and colleges in other European countries have led to exciting learning and development opportunities for our students.
Asapagri: Preparing students for key technological developments in agriculture
Th Asapagri project is a response to the so-called fourth industrial revolution - the development of digitization, automation and robotic automation – and its impacts within agriculture. It recognises that today’s agriculture students must be prepared for major innovations based around new technologies, automation and digitization. The project gives students the chance to compare farming methods and the implementation of new technologies in agriculture in different countries. Easton College is working with partners from the Czech Republic, Denmark, and Sweden on this project.
Digitalis: Digitalisation of vocational education and training
The Digitalis project is a European collaboration which aims to assists agricultural schools and colleges, teachers and students in adopting digitalisation in their vocational education and training (VET). Complete learning units will be created as inspiring examples of digitalisation in agricultural VET. These will all be shared via a database which will be made widely accessible. The aim is to share best practice, resources, and expertise, from agricultural VET schools all over Europe. Easton College is working with partners from Austria, Estonia, Germany and the Netherlands on this project.
