The proximity to the neighboring country and the euregional area offer diverse opportunities for cooperation and development in vocational training. Through various project initiatives by the EU office, the EUREGIO, Dutch partners and vocational colleges, bilingual training modules are already being used in various training occupations on both sides of the border and are constantly developed. The EU office in Duesseldorf is a partner in the currently starting project "Taal connects" under the leadership of ROC Nijmegen. Various vocational colleges and ROCs are integrated in this pilot project in order to make the euregional job market tangible for more trainees. Another project entitled "Cross-border cooperation NRW-NL 2019" includes various smaller projects with vocational colleges in the euregional area. Supported by state funds, i.e. teaching modules and euregional learning situations are developed across borders.
