Who is concerned?

  

VET institutions sometimes organise mobility arrangements or student exchanges in the framework of bilateral agreements or professional networks but these tend to be on a much smaller scale. Yet, the experience of bilateral co-operation with the Nordic countries (especially Finland) is a feature of the Estonian VET system. Active co-operation between (vocational) educational institutions has lasted over 10 years and has influenced their development.
