To enhance the quality the education focused on the following: the level of the international mobility’s of our students shall be indicated using the EQF-levels that are currently determined; the development and implementation of ECVET-units with the partner schools from Europe; to inform staff members about the possibilities of the EQF and ECVET instruments and to make them familiar with these instruments; to implement ECVET units in order to accredit international learning time in the Dutch educational programs. LUNA provides all vocational students with equal opportunities to participate in the international activities, no students are excluded due to social or cultural background. There is specific attention to the inclusion of the lower-level students. The number of participants in LUNA will increase significantly compared to similar projects over the past years. This is caused by the importance that is given to internationalism by the school managers. We estimate a 15% raise in the number of participants compared to previous years. Background: students from all EQF-levels can participate in all fields of agriculture. Both in traditional fields of agriculture as well as more contemporary fields of agriculture such as water, bio, eco, agri techniques, food security, etc. Description of activities LUNA will be used to: pilot the implementation of ECVET-units; enhance foreign language skills of the participants; organize meetings to develop new ECVET-units; enhance the quality of foreign work placements as the partner-companies will be approached via the reliable EUROPEA-network, where MOU’s about quality control are present; Methodology to be used in carrying out the project; Pilot exchanges will be based on ECVET-units, written in cooperation with the hosting organizations that will also be responsible for the organization of the practical components of the programs. The Dutch principle of regional learning expand over the national borders. Cooperation between Entrepreneurs, Government, Research organizations, Educational institutions and the Regional communities will ensure that work placements will take place in international companies where students can work on authentic scenario’s within the European region. The learning outcomes of teachers and young entrepreneurs will strengthen the methodology of regional learning.

The LUNA-activities will provide the participants with competences that are useful in their professional careers and in personal life. Long term benefits The partners will develop into international knowledge centers where international knowledge sharing is a top priority. These internationally oriented schools will be more attractive for young students and will be able to bind the students to the school, thus reducing the number drop outs. At the same time talented students will be challenged to develop themselves to international experts in their fields of study.
