Who we are and what we do

ZBC is the largest technical and vocational school in Denmark and specialises in cutting edge applied and professional programs at any level. Our VET programs lead to both highly practical and very technical jobs.

Changing the world can mean many things at ZBC: You can change your own world by educating yourself and thereby gaining the job that will give you the life you want. Through your education you can also develop and influence the sector you work in and thereby change the world of food experiences, construction techniques etc. Therefore, ZBC strives to get our students prepared to change the world by educating the workforce of tomorrow. We offer many of our students the possibility to go abroad e.g. with the Erasmus+ program as exchanges students. Also, our students and staff will meet with exchange students and staff who we welcome at our school.

In October 2019 ZBC was awarded with an Erasmus+ VET mobility charter - an accreditation and proof of high quality standards in relation to students and staff mobility. 

We always combine craftsmanship with innovation and development, so our students have the capability to do the best job possible and at the same time challenge the traditional way of doing things, so they remain the best in the field.

An international experience

At ZBC we have many years of international experience - from Erasmus+ KA1 exchange of staff and students’ programs and cooperation to selling educational solutions in foreign countries.

In cooperation with Danish world leading business, we develop programs that prepare the students for the requirements of each country. In many countries we also provide consultancy service e.g. in establishing VET in Africa, India, US, China and the Middle East.

As an example, we collaborate with partner schools in China, US and Argentina when it comes to students and staff exchanges and development of mutual courses and train the trainer cooperation.

We have sold courses and food and beverage courses to for example India and have didactic cooperation with leading businesses in India. Among others with the Four Seasons hotel chain for restaurant management.

In Eastern Europe, ZBC have experience with education exports to both offshore and onshore in regard to our butcher division for example. Our Office of International activities works with institutional partners to provide international opportunities for all students at ZBC.
