We are keen to form the education & training gateway to and from our region: exporting good initiatives developed in our region to other European regions and importing strong examples from elsewhere. We never operate on our own. From our role as a true hub we like to work together with like-minded people, keen to cooperate and to help us achieve our goals: to make an active contribution to education and training innovation and together address regional challenges and ambitions with an worldly mindset.
How do we do that? Three main ways: course development & delivery, professionalisation, and of course by connecting people via our hub network.
