Cross-Border Work-based Learning in Estonia and Latvia

Programme: Interreg Estonia-Latvia Programme (EST-LAT)

Project No: Est-Lat 63

Total budget: 464 254,10 EUR

Dates: 01.08.2018. – 31.07.2020.

ESTLAT-WBL project’s aim is to support the cross-border mobilities for work-based learning (WBL) students (VET trainees), based on cooperation between vocational education, training (VET) schools and employers in Latvia and Estonia.

Latvia and Estonia are developing their WBL systems to use them as a tool for acquiring qualified labour force and economic growth. In many cases, WBL also offers an opportunity for young people to get jobs.

ESTLAT-WBL project will arrange 112 cross-border mobilities:

  • 80 for WBL students: (40 from Latvian VET to Estonian SMEs, and 40 from Estonian VET to Latvian SMEs);
  • 12 for Employers tutors ( 6 from Latvia to Estonia and 6 from Estonia to Latvia);
  • 20 for VET school tutors (10 from Latvia and 10 from Estonia).
