The second year the project was opened to the “outside world” – sector companies, regional executive bodies and different organizations that are not in the area of educational system, but are related or dependant of the vocational education. After exploring the vocational system of the partner regions, the project teams proposed ideas and solutions to solve the problems and shared best, interesting and new practices in the process of vocational education.The target group of the project were students from vocational schools, students with special needs undergoing vocational qualification, vocational teachers, headmasters of vocational schools, local managers and inspectors from the educational authorities, employees from educational institutions authorized to implement non-formal education and in-service trainings.
