The “Development of Sustainable Urban Centres with Active Involvement of VET (VET in Urban Centres)” project pursues the elaboration of governance models to reach an active involvement of VET schools and local businesses in urban planning processes, to create new VET programmes linked to the challenges and needs of urban centres, and to improve the cooperation between VET providers, municipalities and the labour market. Coordinated by Hordaland Fylkeskommune, the project will provide two intellectual outputs: a local cooperation model including VET in the development of urban centres and an educational VET programme with the same aim.
