About VET2Business specific Call 40/2016:

VET2Business Project was submitted under EACEA’s call for proposals 40/2016:

“KA3 — VET-business partnerships on work-based learning and apprenticeships”.

The overall aim of the Call is to bridge the gap between the worlds of education and business, to improve the relevance of education and training to labour marketneeds, and to raise excellence. In this context the objective of the Call was to invite the submission of proposals on VET-business partnerships to develop work-based learning and thus contributing to the Riga objective to promote work-based learning in all its forms, with special attention to apprenticeships.

These partnerships should contribute to the involvement of business and social partners in the design and delivery of VET and to ensure a strong work-based learning element in VET.
