This week the EuskoSkills competition is taking place in the Basque Country. With the aim to pursue excellence in vocational education, this kind of competitions take place in the national and international level in different skills areas (hairdressing, construction, cooking, mechatronics, industrial design…).
HETEL does not stand aside of this reality and since October 2019 is involved in an Eramus+ KA2 project where colleges from Finland, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and the Netherlands exchange their good practices in the organization and preparation of teachers and students for skills competitions. Precisely, this very same week, the project partners met in the college Salesianos Deusto, in Bilbao, to work in the programme of a competition which will take place in January in the Netherlands, involving teachers and students from mechatronics, cooking and business.
Although not so popular yet as in the rest of the countries in the consortium, HETEL is committed to involve more of its associated schools in skills competitions. Because it´s not about the competition, it´s about being excellent in what you do.
