ESTLAT-WBL project aims to support the cross-border mobilities of work-based learning for students, based on cooperation between vocational education and training schools and employers on both sides of Latvia-Estonia border.
Latvia and Estonia are developing their wrok-based learning systems as, if successful, they may become the source of qualified labour force and economic growth. In many cases work-based learning also offers direct path to jobs for young people.
It is planned that the work-based learning will cover sectors important for companies of the region: hospitality and catering, timber and construction, retail, IT and other industries.
The model, results and conclusions, training programme and success stories will be published in the Handbook for Cross-Border work-based learning to promote such mobilities after the project lifetime. Cooperation of employers/SMEs and vocational education and training schools of 2 countries, involvement of business organizations will serve as a long-term mechanism to sustain regional and cross-border approach in work-based learning. Partnerships established between the schools and enterprises will serve to support cross-border mobilities of trainees after the project period as well.
