Partner Institutes


The Foundation Europese Beroepsopleidingen has selected the partners for this exchange very carefully. They all are vocational schools from the Euregion Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. Our search lead to participation of Bk Nord der StädteRegion Aachen from Herzogenrath,  BK Jülich, Käthe-Kollwitz-Schule Berufskolleg der StädteRegion Aachen as German partners. HAST Hasselt joined as the Belgian partner and for the Netherlands VISTA college entered into the exchange. Each of the partners has shown a special interest in reducing early school leaving. All partners are convinced that “Emotional intelligence has an enormous impact regarding reduction of ESL”.

Based on the training ‘Emotional intelligence’, provided by STEP Ljublana/Slovenia, partners will develop a train-the-trainer course in and for their own institute but also for colleagues from other education providers that wish to be involved in sharing experiences gained in this exchange. Ultimate goal: integration of courses emotional intelligence in the curriculum and in councelling.

Partners will share expertise and information in an intensive way. Foundation Europese Beroepsopleidingen as initiator will stimulate and monitor this process and coordinate all activities during the exchange..

The unique location of the vocational college Herzogenrath in the border region Meuse-Rhine as well as the globalization of the labor market is the main emphasis of our work. Being a European Erasmus+ school, preparing our students for the various job opportunities and living conditions our border region offers, is especially important to us. In order to make use of these possibilities, we highly promote foreign language learning and developing intercultural skills.

Alongside courses in English and Spanish, we therefore offer courses in French and Dutch as euregional languages in almost all of educational programmes. To further promote language and intercultural skills, our students take part in internships abroad that last two or more weeks. In addition, students can obtain the KMK-certificate in foreign languages.

Moreover, we offer internships abroad for our students in the dual educational system. We closely cooperate with partners, schools and companies in Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, and Spain. This cooperation allows our students to gain first experiences abroad which are important for their work-related and personal development. Early on, our students can test their language skills in our exchange programs with foreign partners in France, Belgium, Poland and Spain.
Exchange projects with our partners in France, Belgium, Poland and Spain enable our students, including full-time students, to test their foreign language skills in direct contact.
