Modern Vocational Training Project is based on the comparison between three different vocational training systems and systems of vocational competence as well as the occupational practices of industries in these three countries. It concentrates on electronics, mechatronics and polymechanics (factory maintenance). It comprises the Dual system which is applied in the German speaking countries (Germany, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria and South Tyrol), the Nordic model and the British national NVQ system. The Project is carried out in close collaboration with modern industrial enterprises, which means that the aspect of maintaining European and global competitiveness is strongly emphasized. The Project has also a developmental effect on the new European countries that are now represented through their modern and advanced educational establishments.
