Internationalization project

In the project ECVET in Agriculture, MBO Westland has cooperated within a group of 6 vocational agricultural schools. This partnership has developed ECVET modules in the fields of agriculture and horticulture. Over the past 2 years, the partners have implemented these learning modules in their schools and exchanged students internationally to take part in these modules. The project partners are:

  • Lentiz education group from the Netherlands;
  • Bygholm Landbrugsskole from Denmark;
  • HBLA Ursprung from Austria;
  • Vrij Agro- en Biotechnisch Instituut (VABI) from Belgium;
  • Groenhorst College from the Netherlands;
  • Lena-Valle videregående skole from Norway.

Each partner has developed 2 modules that cover either:

  • Subjects that are a part of the core of each partner's curriculum.
  • Subjects that are innovative; these subjects are not yet a part of the curricula but are very relevant for future employees in the sector!

Each partner offers courses in their own field of expertise and sends students to the other partner’s courses. In this way, the partnership aims to create flexible, international learning routes for their students.

The project has ended after the summer holidays, but the partnership will continue to cooperate! 

Course titles include:

  • Integrated Pest Management
  • Organic farming
  • Hoofcare
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Marketing of Agricultural products
  • Sustainable dairy farming
