Facts about TEC

 

International Policy

TEC is a multicultural Vocational Training College with close ties to a labour market under a growing Globalization. The increasing trend towards internationalization increases the skills needs for innovation, inter-cultural competencies and a high level of professional specialization. We aim at strengthenig the European dimension in our educational programmes by:

  • Creating transparency and mutual recognition of our programmes
  • Making sure that our students are well prepared for a complex labour market and receive the best possible education.

TEC therefore supports students and staff in their development of intercultural skills and outlooks.

In order to be technically, pedagogically and organizationally updated, TEC as an institution will seek out knowledge and experiences outside of Denmark. This is done through TEC's participation in transnational networks, projects and expert fora and by students and staff participating in various types of mobilities, including the provision of training periods abroad.
