Informal interactions can be promoted at a low cost. For instance, by reorganising the physical environment of a VET school or accommodating schedules to arrange for moments where staff and learners meet (e.g. by sharing the canteen and lunch breaks).
Activities outside the formal education and training programme such as artistic activities, sporting activities, youth exchanges, trips and other activities aimed at motivating young people, also facilitate informal interactions. The costs of organising these types of activities can also be low, especially by cooperating with local services and organisations, such as sports clubs and municipalities.
