HETEL, together with the rest of VET networks from the Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Finland and Scotland, is part of the Erasmus+ KA3 project “VET Networks of Networks. A grassroot approach”, led by the Dutch college “Onderwijsgroep Tilburg”.
The aim of the project is to improve VET quality in our colleges and their internationalisation strategy by reinforcing our collaboration within Network of Networks. This has enabled HETEL to strengthen our international strategy and our alliances at the EU level.
This week we have celebrated in Brussels the “Network of Networks VET leaders´ Conference”, an opportunity for VET leaders of the 5 networks to exchange information and interests and identify possible topics for international cooperation. During the event, we also counted with Mrs. Helène Barry, de la EACEA y Mrs. Ana Carrero, Deputy Head of Unit Vocational Education and Training – DG Employment (European Comission).
During the event, we have officially launched our 5 international working groups dedicated to vital topics for VET in Europe: sustainability, WBL, internationalisation, pedagogical and digital innovation, and entrepreneurship. We have also signed a cooperation agreement among the 5 networks as a symbolic and formal commitment to keep and increase our cooperation, present and future. Abantean!
