The RESIST consortium offers you this manual as a hands-on approach to drop-out prevention through SME involvement.
We encourage every VET college in Europe to use this manual to get a clear view on how to organise a series of events where the Business World can truly connect with Vocational Education. These events can be organised in many different forms, we will provide you with some concrete guidelines.

Everything you need can be found in this manual and several extra documents and
templates are available elsewhere on this website.

The manual we developed can assist VETs in organising an event where students, teachers, entrepreneurs and employees interact and foster important relationships for the future. This event could bring about an interaction between the different groups and diminish the number of Early School Leavers of VET level students due to their better understanding of their future in working life.

The manual has been pilot tested in 5 European countries and has been fine-tuned after initial pilot testing.
