“Training without Borders”
Transnational mobility in Vocational Education and Training
Through stays abroad, both trainees and young skilled personnel prepare themselves for the demands of a globalised economy and the enterprises also benefit. The best way to acquire international competencies is a learning and work stay abroad, ideally already during training.
Nationwide coaching network
