Logo Europaschule NRWBKCR International

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 with institutions in

  • Älmhult (Sweden)
  • Borlänge (Sweden)
  • Exeter (Great Britain)
  • Glasgow (Great Britain)
  • 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 Leonardo/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.
