In the last months representatives from Mercantec, the largest educational institution in Viborg (Denmark), and representatives from Alcoi (Spain) have met in both cities in order to strengthen their cooperation on Vocational Education and Training mobility and innovation in the framework of Xarxa FP network.
The recent visit of Mercantec’s representatives to Alcoi has concluded in several cooperation agreements. For instance, IES Cotes Baixes, a VET Center of Alcoi, and Mercantec have agreed to make a selection of the most qualified students so that they can perform a three-month internship in companies located in both cities, as well as to promote the exchange of teachers. Moreover, the Danish delegation visited another VET Center (IES Batoi), two major companies interested in hosting Danish trainees (Multiscan and Adsalsa) and met with the Mayor and the Education Councillor of the City Council of Alcoi.
