Organisation Description

The Landschaftsverband Rheinland (LVR) – the Regional Council of the Rhineland municipalities – operates with around 22,000 employees as a supralocal authority for the 9.8 million people in the Rhineland in Germany. With 41 special schools, 10 clinics, 20 museums and cultural institutions, 4 youth welfare services, the State Youth Welfare Office and a curative education network, it fulfils a role which is recognised right across the Rhineland region. The LVR is Germany’s largest service provider for people with special needs, promoting inclusion in all areas of life. “Quality for people” is the LVR’s guiding principle.

The LVR is a newly accredited member of the Erasmus+ programme in the field of vocational education and training and seeks to realize mobilities for apprentices and teaching staff inter alia in the LVR nursing schools and central administration. Its Erasmus+ consortium includes seven nursing schools which offer 3-year apprenticeships that combine both theoretical classes and work placements in clinics and nursing homes. These institutions are located all over the Rhineland in Bedburg-Hau, Bonn, Düren, Düsseldorf, Köln, Langenfeld, and Viersen. The central LVR administration in Cologne furthermore offers apprenticeships in the public administration sector.

Beyond the nursing and administration sectors, the LVR comprises a wide variety of departments and institutions, which facilitates collaboration in VET in many different fields.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are interested in an Erasmus+-exchange. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
