The programme "Връзката на професионалното образование и обучение с реалния бизнес” (How to link VET to the real business) was launched by the National Institute for Education and Training on 14 February 2011. It aims at qualifying 200 deputy directors all over the country.

The quality of VET is a priority for the European Union. In Bulgaria, the major step needed is to update and adjust curricula to the labour market requirements. Moreover, the leading emphasis of this new programme is placed on practical training.


The programme "How to link VET to the real business” will help VET schools to answer the economic priorities of the regions. The managers of these schools will be trained to know how to attract real business and to link curricula with business requirements.

This programme is jointly implemented with the America for Bulgaria Foundation.
