We were present on March 2nd with the 9th grade classes in the 11th edition of Qualifica, Education, Training, Youth and Employment Fair, which brought to Exponor 40,000 visitors, thus becoming the most popular edition ever . With the presence of 115 exhibitors, this fair had, over four days, a lively program of activities, which allowed its visitors to know a wide range of educational, national and international.
This edition of Qualifica also sought to encourage the student community to adopt sustainable behavior towards the environment, subordinating the fair to the theme Love the Planet. The thousands of visitors who passed through Qualifica could also attend several fashion shows, which showed the innovation and creativity of fashion schools, textiles and jewelery, and artistic hair, beard and make-up shows. Video games, climbing walls or small diving classes were other popular proposals. Qualifica 2018 was thus a success, with a guaranteed return to Exponor for next year.
We organized an event focused on careers and opportunities for the future: continuing education in secondary education, vocational and university education. We invited secondary schools, vocational training schools, Minho University, the national army, the national guard, the municipality, local job center and other stakeholders to celebrate with us the Europe & Erasmus+ day.
