In this projekt named "New WBL" nine partners in five european countries develope work-based learning models to serve as an instrument of policy guidance. Participating countries are Slovenia, Bulgaria and Latvia. The aim of the project ist to enable these countries to promote reforms in the area of vocational education and training. Work-based learing ist intended to be integrated much stronger in the future. To meet the needs of the labour market in an appropriate way there ist the plan not to look for an "onesize fits all" model, but to identify three separate approaches.
