- We sent and receive students for work-based learning mobilities at school and for internship at companies.
- We sent and receive teachers and trainers for job-shadowing at VET schools.
Currently, our school is collaborating in a Strategic Partnership supporting innovation Blend4VET about blended learning. Find out more about it:
