Erasmus+ experience: future hairdressers develop their skills in Portuguese beauty salons

Karalius Mindaugas Vocational Training Centre actively implements Erasmus+ projects, during which students gain international experience, get acquainted with the cultures of other countries and improve their foreign language skills. This helps them to better prepare and integrate into a dynamic work environment, inspiring further professional development.

Five students of the Hairdressing Department – Ms. Kotryna Reinytė, Ms. Paulina Šatinskienė, Ms. Kamilė Trukšnytė, Ms. Monika Karaliūtė and Ms. Lina Graželienė – participated in a 2-week Erasmus+ traineeship in Portugal on October 19 – November 3, 2019. Vocational teacher, master trainer Ms. Agnė Eimontienė went together with the students, she monitored the work processes and the activities of beauty salons.
“We have really noticed a lot of differences between the techniques, technologies and tools used by Lithuanian and Portuguese beauty specialists; therefore, it is a really interesting experience. Meanwhile, this is a great opportunity to tell them about the way we work and learn in our Vocational Training Center. It is gratifying that traineeship supervisors enable us to acquire a very wide range of practical skills. We make hairdos for clients, dye their hair, perform various hair treatment procedures. There was an opportunity to observe women’s haircuts, permanent hair curling and other beauty treatments, get acquainted with new tools,” says Paulina sharing her impressions on the traineeship.
The learners are happy to have had a great opportunity to improve their practical skills in the following beauty salons – Manuela Cabeleireiros, Rosinha Salão de Cabeleireiro, Ana Guedes Cabeleireiros. All this is due to the Erasmus+ project Improving the Training Process and Employability through Quality Internhips and Traineeships, No. 2018-1-LT01-KA102-046872. During mobility, it is aimed to get acquainted with the specifics of working abroad, innovations, work tools used and techniques developed in training programmes. Linguistic, cultural and professional competencies that meet the real requirements of the work environment are also developed.
