European cross-border program "From Vocational Training to Success"
The project "From Vocational Training to Success" connected the European countries Croatia, the Netherlands and Slovenia, with a focus on entrepreneurship in tourism.Through several visits in 2013 and 2014, participants have exchanged training experiences and study materials, learned more about each other VET field and also improve the VET system in the future.
Partners have visited different enterprises and institutions to collect good practice examples and to study different approaches and ways in entrepreneurship.Meetings between participating institutions are organized on regular basis by partners in their countries.On these meetings, participants have compared good practice examples and discussed on different methods used in entrepreneurship training.
The project resulted in a partnership network between participants and Guidelines for VET containing good practice examples and specific modules for training in entrepreneurship. Guidelines are available on DVD, as a printed edition and online, and can be used freely in every institution.
The project bridges the gap between vocational education and the labour market since the participants involved in the project are representatives of the labour market and institutions that provide vocational training. This European partnership also increased the participants qualifications, professional competence and experiences in the field of VET.
These new gained professional competence will be used, by the participants, in the professional training and education of their traineesThe project will have impact on the improvement of training process in the participating organizations, and a broader impact on bringing the project results to all European organizations.
