Why we participate internationally

Through out the years the Danish Meat Trade College, now ZBC, has cooperated with partner schools and organizations in projects funded by ERASMUS+ and NORDPLUS supporting our international strategy.

Taking part in international projects is a tool for us to bring our teachers, staff and students’ knowledge and competences in play in inspiring and challenging frames as an alternative to “daily business” and to bring inspiration and experience in return to our own organization.

ZBC is part of the these networks:

EFVET – European Forum of Technical and Vocational Education and Training with members from 31 European countries. ZBC is member of the National board.

Ulixes European Economic Interest Group with Educational entities from all over Europe.

Danish Consortium of Academic Craftsmanship – ZBC is member.

Current EU projects

For the time being the ZBC – The Danish Meat Trade College is participating in, among others, the following international EU funded projects:

Various 2–10 weeks educational training within ERASMUS+ KA1 VET Mobility projects for industrial butcher, retail butchery, cook & waiter, baker & confectioner, healthcare educations, hospitality, security guard, watchmaker, ICT supporter & service assistant both as sending and receiving partner for students and teachers in cooperation with our European partner schools.

“We are currently partner in a ERASMUS+ KA2 project Fit for 4.0. Together with 8 other schools in EU, we increase quality of teachers and trainers in teaching within the 4. industrial revolution.”

Erasmus+ KA2 project on exchange of good practices in welfare technology and innovative methods between eight EU-partners from social and health care schools

In 2017-2020, ZBC has been the lead partner on an Erasmus KA2 project “Entrepreneurial Competences in Vocational Educational Training”.

Main objectives of the project
To give inspiration and exchange knowledge to educational institutions in the social and welfare sector. For this purpose the partners have put together a selection of inspirational materials for teachers and staff at social and healthcare schools that are freely available on the Facebook page named “EC EUVET - Healthcare - Welfare Technology and Innovation”. Take a look at the inspirational materials under the menu"files" together with full reports on the five learning activities in the project.
