The intention is to contribute to further modernization of the system of dual education in Slovakia and so to concede an impulse for other countries of the Danube region. Transfer of positive experiences from Austria and Germany (Baden Württemberg) should be a contribution towards creation of compatible systems of education in the Danube region.

The objective of the project is to contribute to  a complex reform of the system of vocational education and training (VET) not only on a systemic level, but also by analyzing the pilot experiences from the manufacturing sector in Slovakia. Through the improvement of the quality of vocational education and training the project shall contribute to the fulfilment of the the aims of the EU Strategy 2020 and  Bruge communique.

1. Promote the national VET system reform in Slovakia
2. Developing a project vision of a competence center, focused on education of teachers and in-company trainers / instructors of the  Danube countries.
3. Strengthening the support and mobilization of SMEs for VET.
