Seven European VET schools from four European countries have cooperated in the Edutrans project. The project was being led by the Dutch VET school ‘ROC Da Vinci College’.
We developed our products in close cooperation with the working field.
More information about each partner you will find below.
ROC Da Vinci College
ROC Zuid – Holland – Zuid / Da Vinci College offers vocational training programs in Economics, Engineering and Technology, Information Technology, Health Care and Social Services. The age of our students ranges from 16 – about 20 years old. Besides also a wide variety of contract programs is offered, as well as basic education for adults.
We are aware of the fact that being a ROC we play an important role in society and also have a great responsibility to prepare students in an adequate way for their further participation in society. This implies that we continuously work on enhancing relationships with supplying schools, companies and institutions. We have to know what the labour market needs.
Trying to respond to the needs of society & the labour market we think that international activities, like mobility for students and staff, will help to get prepared for work at the international labour market and to be an understanding and contributing citizen.
In today’s society, sustainability and the energy transition are key. Students need new knowledge and skills to work in this sector, therefore this project is helping to keep our education up to date.
