What is an International VET Partnership

VET schools and colleges mostly work with different partners in each project in which they participate. An international partnership will have been established by a group of organisations who have a common purpose, offer international opportunities to their students and staff, mutually benefit from working together and have developed common protocols and procedures.
Such a partnership aims to build in quality to international projects and mobilities by being more effective and efficient. Once established a partnership may invite other complementary partners to join or invite partners to participate in a particular project.

What will NAVE2 do with the partner dossiers and the materials

The dossiers and the materials will be tested and improved by the four partners in a range of student mobilities. Each partner will send students to the other three partners.
The project has purposefully decided that the participating students should be those students who would usually be at risk of dropping out from such work placements.
The mobilities should therefore provide a robust test of the materials and arrangements NAVE2 has developed. The project will then produce a manual to guide other VET organisations to form similar international partnerships.
