Folk High School as a Shortcut to Education
The aim of this project is to help increase motivation and clarification of young people through a folk high school course. The target group is young people who need a second chance in order to get started with an education.
The project includes three main courses: Turism, construction and health, as these three areas experience a shortage of skilled labour in Northern Jutland. The project expects to motivate up to 140 young people to start an education and, at the same time, contribute significant cultural aspects through the influence of the folk high school.
Vrå Folk High School is responsible for the project in cooperation with the Folk High School for Physical Education of Northern Jutland.
The project receives € 6.4 Million from the European Social Fund.
