Euroskill- network consists three types of activities. The aim is to upgrade Forssa Vocational Institute´s international mobility to the avarage national level of vocational institutes in Finland.

Strategy aims to develop the skills of staff and students and to promote Forssa Vocational Institute to the national level of international mobility and European networking. Activitity one is to allow staff (3 teachers) the change to move to partner schools for job shadowing. The staff will also meet employers from the companies who offer VET- training places to our students. Second activity is for long-term VET- Students. We would like to offer 20 VET - places in European companies. Our partners will assist us to find suitable places. Third type of activity is small student group mobility to partner organizations. In these four groups we would like to offer international experience also for students with fewer opportunities. Projects prime target is to build up long lasting partnerships with European schools and other VET- organizations.
