Who we are
We are a part of AcadeMedia, the largest education company in northern Europe covering the range from pre-schools to adult training and education. Praktiska is an organisation for secondary level vocational education and training. Consisting of about 40 schools spread across Sweden, in all there are more than 9000 students and around 1200 staff personnel in our organisation.
What we do
Characteristic for our vocational training and education is the close cooperation between us and companies. Together we train a large number of apprentices. Since we are taking the best from the school world and combining that with training at good and caring companies, our learners are very well prepared for the labor market, after their three years of studies. We are simply preparing our learners for working life by giving them, their best three years in school, they ever had in their life!
Our ambition is to prepare our learners not only for the Swedish but also for the international labor market. This work we mainly perform within the framework of ERASMUS+. Praktiska is by the Swedish University and College Council an accredited ERASMUS+-partner for the period 2021-2027, meaning we are living up to the very high-quality standards demanded by the European Union.
How we do it
We are performing and taking part in a wide range of activities ínternationally, giving us the tools to develop learners, staff, education and training and also our organisation in an effective and creative way. We also give our partners means to do the same!
Short- and long-term learning mobility gives our learners an international perspective of their work, new working skills, personal contacts in companies and develops them as European citizens.
To develop our existing high standard vocational education and training benefitting all learners in our schools, staff personnel and schools take part in a great range of activities. We are taking part in KA 1 Mobilities by;
- hosting teachers and educators in training,
- hosting invited experts,
- taking part in courses internationally,
- taking part in VET skills competitions,
- sending teachers for teaching and training assignments and job-shadowing.
Praktiska also takes part in the KA 2 Partnership-programme to enhance the education and training, our learners, our staff, school organisations and more. In this context we are taking part in long term cooperation with schools, companies and other organisations in all of Europe, sometimes as the coordinator and sometimes as a participant in other organisations coordinated projects.
Finally, Praktiska is a member of the European Forum of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (EfVET) and the European Alliance for Apprenticeships.
