In its endeavour to prepare its students for a globalized world, the BKCR also looks beyond borders.

Acknowledging our various international endeavours over the past decades, the state government of North Rhine-Westphalia awarded us the title "Europaschule" in September 2015.

If you have any questions or are interested in an co-operation, feel free to contact us any time.

VET Mobility Charter



Map of internship partnerships (map source: OpenStreetMap)Since the late 1990s, BKCR students have had the opportunity to complete work placements in partner institutions throughout Europe - mostly within Leonardo/Erasmus+ partnerships but also fully self-organized.

Currently, we have arrangements for regular work placements and stays abroad with institutions in

  • Älmhult (Sweden)
  • Athens (Greece)
  • Borlänge (Sweden)
  • Corofin (Ireland)
  • Dublin (Ireland)
  • Exeter (Great Britain)
  • Glasgow (Great Britain)
  • Kinvara (Ireland)
  • Vincennes (France)
  • Warsaw (Poland).

For its proven quality in internationalizing vocational education and training (VET), the BKCR has received the "Erasmus+ VET Mobility Charter" in 2018.  

You can read more about that on our Erasmus+ page.


For years, the BKCR has been active in Comenius projects which were centered around the topic of "entrepreneurial skills".

Over the past years, our Comenius co-operation partners included schools and other institutions in

  • Àlora/Andalucia (Spain)
  • Eskilstuna (Sweden)
  • Hedmark (Norway)
  • Horsens (Denmark)
  • Larnaca (Cyprus)
  • London (Great Britain)
  • Mazzarino/Sicily (Italy)
  • Ostrava (Czech Republic)
  • Oyonnax (France) 

These cooperations have proven to be a benefit for all levels: students, teachers and administration. We are always willing to consider new co-operation proposals!

You can find more about them on our   Comenius projects page.

An increasing number of teachers of our school are active within the  etwinning network. An etwinning project is scheduled to prepare an actual exchange with Spain in 2021.
