Abstract

Vocational Education Training (VET) programs offer much more than just training and a vision to the future career path of young people. It is a serious step to broaden professional horizons, competitiveness and personal development. VET systems in Europe are based on a well-developed network of various governmental structures, industrial employers and trade unions, supported by strong system of laws, rules and legislations. VET system was introduced in Bulgaria in 2016, pilot projects are being implemented in cooperation with Switzerland, Germany and Austria. Since October 2017 the Technical University of Varna (TUV) is a key partner in project DYNAMIC. It aims at development, implementation, test and validation of programs for VET for students from the TUV.
