The project is addressing the problem that the workforce skills obtained as a result of the vocational education does not always match the needs of the labour market in the Latvia-Lithuania cross border region, as well as does not fully utilise the possibility to work across the border.

The project is targeted at the students and teachers of the 8 involved schools that through participation in the series of capacity building exercises for teachers and joint theoretical and practical workshops for students will improve their skills and as a result be able to enter the job market across the border thus increasing mobility. The project activities will be organised by joint cooperation of all involved schools in four inter-sectoral themes: (1) transport vehicle including vehicle technical aspects and interior design, (2) textile and graphic design, (3) landscape design and agro tourism, and (4) agriculture and technologies.
The project also foresees improvement of the offer of education programmes and the respective material basis for the education process of the 8 involved schools, as well as to involve 150 persons in joint local employment initiatives and joint training.
