UniVET - Vocational or university education and training

Why do young people choose to study or study at the university? Based on this question, a comparative study of decision factors as well as a study of the most important influencing factors are planned in the framework of the UniVET project.  UniVET project analyzes current trends and their drivers in all partner countries to provide comprehensive information services to key target groups (high school students, dropouts, parents, schools, employers).



The project is situated in the context of vocational training mainly in construction and to a certain extent in vocational training in general. The context is also defined by the areas and scope of the partners' works, that is, VET in the strict sense and the implicit increase in the hiring of talents and experts as well. Also scientific approaches as well as didactic methods that introduce and develop work-based training (eg dual systems in VET). The context of the transition phases in VET (in general and in particular in construction) defines the work program and the professional exchange of experiences in this project.

The objectives are the professional exchange of experiences related to:


Employer Branding/employer brand: Innovative ways of

link employees with the company and optimize satisfaction

of aspiring professionals (apprentices) by increasing

of the external and internal relationship. Are there examples of other branches?


Boomerang Hire: How and why to install new positions for ex

employees? What should an employer consider to create and

offer new opportunities to experts who have decided

return?Is there a different approach in the construction branch

what inother branches (for example, economics, insurance, automotive)?

Network recruiting/Contratación en red: How to convince the

friends of employees, family members or other

members of the peer group to start a career in the branch

of the construction?


Improved Mobility

The aim of the Enhanced Mobility project is to identify the potential for successful mobility of learners in Europe.

Vocational training is a sensitive supplement. But how does successful mobility occur?

We ask ourselves: What are the factors for successful mobility?

The EU sets a target of 6%, that is, 6% of apprentices in Europe should spend part of their training abroad. The Government of the Federal Republic of Germany, for example, has set itself an even more ambitious target of 10%. In fact, however, the rate was only 4% in 2015. Measures to increase this rate.

Successful mobility will be identified. Three different groups of people want to be interviewed using questionnaires.

Who are interested ​​in mobility. With the help of surveys, they can find out and reflect on their most important personality traits and thus verify them.

The second group of people currently living abroad. They learn more about themselves and can increase their self-confidence. Things that work well or badly in mobility become tangible and solutions to problems can be found. This group wants to be interviewed by the members of the project consortium. Those who participate in mobility projects.

The third group of people who have completed a stay abroad with one of the project partners. These people are also asked about their subjective sense of achievement.

Accordingly, the factors for successful mobility are derived from the evaluation of the respective questionnaires and made available to the possible target groups.

We believe that in an increasingly globalized Europe, mobility is an absolute added value for young people in order to internationalize their experiences and develop skills competitively. The innovative approach of this project is the comprehensive consideration of success factors in the context of mobility projects for different target groups, but above all for target groups from the construction sector.

"Improved Mobility" runs under the administration of TALENTBRÜCKE GmbH & Co. KG and is funded by the Erasmus+ program of the European Union. The project consortium consists of members from Germany, Spain, Lithuania, Italy and Belgium.
