ETEN (European Training and Education Network) has more than 10 years of experience in coordinating educational programs in the EU and has presence in several European countries. The network has partner organizations in Budapest, Milan, Vieanna and last but not least our Barcelona office.
Bamos organizes the operative parts of Erasmus+ KA122 projects, arranging relevant work placement to the participants, providing accommodation, meals, cultural programs, airport transfer, local transportation and many other services as per the request of the given partner. Our goal is to connect the students with the work life of Barcelona and ensure a rewarding experience for all our partners.
Erasmus+ aims to modernise education, training and youth work across Europe. It is open to education, training, youth and sport organisations across all sectors of lifelong learning, including school education, further and higher education, adult education and the youth sector. It offers exciting opportunities for participants from all over the EU to then study, work, volunteer, teach and train abroad in Europe.

Barcelona has a typical Mediterranean cuisine so the nutritious and fresh food is always guaranteed.
Breakfast: Bakery products and juices or tea
Lunch: a light packed lunch that the students can take it to their workplace and heat it up if it is necessary
Dinner: preprepared international dishes which are easy to heat up at the kitchen of the accommodation
Sundays as a teambuilding activity, the students have their dinner in a lovely restaurant close to their accommodation in order to taste the local cuisine.
Completing the internship the student will gain work and real-life experience. As an Erasmus+ project it is a requirement that not only memories will keep this time alive but the workplaces will issue a Europass Mobility Document to each and every student about the competencies and experiences that they have gained during the mobility.
It is not only one document more, but it means a great help because it can be used as a supplement when applying for a new job or looking for new challenges in terms of work in Europe. This certificate is recognized throughout the European Union.

Companies who have already collaborated with us said the following:
La Clara Comunicacio
Marina Reig, Communication manager:
“We, at La Clara, are so happy with the experience, which allowed us to meet a young but very ambitious student to work with and support. We also believe that this kind of project is necessary for giving an opportunity to young professionals to try themselves in the real labour market they will have to enter.”
Esclat Group Social
Daniel Aragón, nurse specialized in cerebral palsy:
“ERASMUS+ students are very excited and full of curiosity when starting their internship programme. They are interested in the people we are taking care of, and during the entire period they spend with us they collect rewarding experiences and knowledge that will be useful to them in the future.”
Barcelona Hair Academy
Cecily Doyle , Administration Manager:
“It was really useful to have students helping us. They have always worked with great enthusiasm and suggested many new ideas. We were very impressed with their capacity to learn and they were of great help in our hairdressing salon.”
The Barri Gòtic, also known as the Gothic Quarter, contains a maze of ancient buildings dating back to medieval times. Roman ruins can also be found interspersed throughout the neighborhood’s bustling plazas. The Palau de la Generalitat, headquarters of the Catalan government, is tucked away here as well. The Gothic Quarter stretches to the east of La Rambla Avenue in the Old City. According to Frommer’s, this area is one of Barcelona’s most popular tourist districts.
Monument a Colom
The Monument a Colom, or Christopher Columbus Monument, is located in Barcelona’s Old City district. This lofty statue measures 200 feet and sits at the end of La Rambla Avenue. The monument marks the spot where the famed explorer Columbus disembarked from his ship onto Spanish soil in 1493 after discovering the new world in America. According to Fodor’s Travel Guide, a small observation deck at the top of the monument offers panoramic views of the city and sea. It can be reached by elevator from the entrance on the harbor side of the monument. Expect to pay a minor entrance fee.
Arc del Triomf
The Arc del Triomf is a red-brick arch built by the architect Josep Vilaseca. It was put in place as the entrance for the Universal Exposition of 1888. The Arc del Triomf resembles the famous archways of ancient Rome. The designs on the sides of the arch commemorate the Spaniard Jaume I El Conqueridor’s conquest of the Moors in Mallorca in the year 1229 AD. Visitors can find the arch between the streets of Passeig de Lluís Companys and Passeig de Sant Joan at the foot of the promenade connecting to the Park of the Ciutadella. This attraction lies on the border of Barceloneta and Port Olimpic, two seaside districts in the northeast section of the city.
Torre de Collserola
Also of interest is the Torre de Collserola. The Collserola Tower was erected in 1992 for the Olympic games hosted in Barcelona that year. This looming tower houses an observation deck, as well as a restaurant. Fodor’s Travel Guide states that this monument is one of the best pieces of contemporary architecture in the city.
La Sagrada Familia
Frommer’s Travel Guide recommends La Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudi’s incomplete masterpiece, as one of the top landmarks in this Catalan city. Construction on this surreal cathedral started in 1882 and stopped when Gaudi died in 1926, leaving some of the interior unfinished. Four towers shoot up over the building, complete with intricately-carved spires. It’s a bizarre monument featuring traditional Gothic design along with a hefty touch of
Art-Nouveau and fantastical symbolism.
Park Guell is another master project – Gaudi. This park was supposed to be a resting place for the higher spheres of Barcelona. Amazingly architecture, vegetation and views. The lizard standing at the entrance to Park Güell is the most photographed attraction in Barcelona. There is also a Gaudí Museum available for visitors at the park for a fee.
Camp Nou Stadium
Camp Nou means “new field” is the home stadium of FC Barcelona since 1957. It has a seating capacity of 99,354 and it is the largest stadium in all Europe and the largest football stadium in the world. It has hosted 2 European Cup and Champions League final in 1989 and 1999, different UEFAS Cups, FIFA World Cup and the 1992 Summer Olympics.
This is one of the things you have to watch while in Barcelona! Place with amazing climate and amazing view. Go to Montjuïc during the night … and a show of light, music and water will make you feel special.
Mercat de la Boqueria
La Boqueria is an open market and a name of reference in Barcelona.
Address: La Rambla 91, 08001 Barcelona
Opening hours: Monday to Saturday from 08:00 to 18:30
For those who want to discover the artistic side of Barcelona, we suggest visiting the Picasso Museum.In the Museum there are 4251 works by the artist, which are permanent exhibits and perfectly show the genius of the artist.

Casa Batlló The Casa Batlló project is meant to symbolize the dragon of the legend of Sant Jordi, very important for Catalan culture.
Another of Gaudi’s works worth recommending.
Casa Milà. La Pedrera
