The EU-Agency, Regional Authority of the Government Cologne is among others a consulting body for the development of schools and for the realization of new concepts in vocational training. As a co-ordinator of this mobility project it represents all the vocational colleges in the governmental district of Cologne (about 60). As target group it focuses on instructors respectively teachers to broaden their intercultural and professional competences. The EU-Agency, Regional Authority of the Government Cologne has registered a steady demand of teachers to take part in seminars abroad. The EU-Agency wants to close this gap by giving the teachers the possibility, among others, to get to know the vocational systems of Turkey, Finland and Sweden to find out similarities and differences and by this becoming able to prepare students for a work placement abroad.
The EU-Agency is also partner in the Xarxa city network(www.bcn.es/xarxafp, an association of 22 cities in the EU. This network is specialized in the realization of work placement in a transnational context and will be certified according to EN ISO 9001:2000 in the year 2006.
