Boosting Business Integration Through Joint Vocational Education and Training (BBVET) is a research and development project broadening the internationalisation of Vocational Educational Training (VET) in the Baltic Sea Region. Funded by the INTERREG South Baltic Programme and embedded in the EU strategy for the Baltic Sea Region.

BBVET aims is to develop and pilot the first international vocational education in the Edtech and Mechatronic sectors, involving 40 students and 5 countries. This will promote steps towards internationalisation of VET schools and regional companies.

The project focuses on Denmark, Germany, Lithuania, Poland, and Sweden.

The BBVET training year will develop your international mindset and give you the opportunity to develop both your personal and professional competencies.

During the training, you will develop both soft skills on a personal level and new technical knowledge in the Edtech or the Mechatronics sector. The training will give you self-confidence and intercultural knowledge together with the possibility to develop your creativity and entrepreneurial mindset.

This is a great opening to work with an international team, making new friends, and creating connections with interesting companies.
