Transfer of Knowledge in International Internship TOKII 1/9/2018-30/9/2019


The project of Hiiumaa Vocational School helps carry out the main functions, teaching concepts and internationalisation strategy of the school, as described in its development plan.

The main objective of the school: Hiiumaa Vocational School is a well-known and prestigious school in a manor house that provides high-quality education to all its students.

The main objectives of the project are:

  • To ensure high quality vocational education and efficient study arrangements
  • To offer varied study options for target groups
  • To provide richer specialised education through international practical training and work culture
  • To develop the system of practical training in companies in cooperation with employers
  • To encourage vocational teachers to work and study in and cooperate with companies to improve the quality of education they provide

The project will help develop and maintain our network of foreign companies and schools. This project involves continued cooperation with the Hå gamle prestegard art and culture centre in Norway, the Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust in Great Britain, Edudelta vocational education centre in the Netherlands and Ronneby Port in Sweden.
New partners will include Coleshill Organics, an organic market garden in Great Britain; Tricase Port in Italy; Handverksskolen, a school of traditional construction in Norway; and Litorina educational centre in Sweden. 

The project will focus on high-quality practical training in companies, which is very important for learning outcomes and professional qualification. The learning mobility will add value to the vocational education of the students of and graduates from Hiiumaa Vocational School. Practical training in actual settings is pivotal for students. The more experience they have with different companies the better they are prepared for work life and the wider their horizon. The opportunity to work abroad in foreign culture and language settings provides a challenge for each participant as well as an opportunity for both personal and professional development.

After the completion of their learning mobility, the students have acquired professional competencies to be competitive in the labour market in the following:

  • florists in making flower arrangements;
  • junior gardeners in organic vegetable cultivation;
  • landscapers in green area creation and maintenance;
  • log house builders in making and erecting log structures;
  • restorers of timber structures in the restoration of buildings;
  • small-craft harbour specialists in port management.

The lead teachers will make use of the knowledge and skills they acquire in teaching the courses of floristry, gardening and landscaping.

Jane Üksik, the head of continuing vocational training, will make use of the new knowledge and skills in managing vocational training processes as well as in developing and marketing training packages for courses conducted at Suuremõisa manor house.

Our school hosts the Conservation Officer Darren Barker from Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust in spring 2019.
