During fall 2019, the Competence center for lived experience and service development (KBT) got accredited vocational school education. The school is accredited by NOKUT (the Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education). The education gives a certificate with 60 ECTS credits. Students who complete the courses will therefore get merit and admission into higher education.
The vocational school for peer supporters in the field of mental health and addiction problems is an education program that provides both theoretical and practical competence based on the use of personal experience in helping and empowering others.
In 2020 we welcomed our first students. Despite the situation with covid-19, we look back at the first year as successful. The study program is mainly web-based, and we have students from all over Norway.
This fall we got the message that KBT Vocational School and our partners got financial funding for our Erasmus+ project Smart Business For All. This project aims to give migrants tools to start their own businesses in their new country.
