    The school has participated in some international projects. The current school year is attending school in a Nordic project with the aim of including all students. The managers and employees who have participated in a project have returned to school with new knowledge and new ideas. This has helped develop the school to the way it is today. We have a school with a good sharing culture, so that everyone in the school can share in new knowledge.
    Our school now has a strong desire to participate in a new project and learn from other European schools. We are particularly interested in deserving our use of information technology. It is documented that in Norway it is more difficult for non-ethnic norms to find work after school. Working out knowledge about how our students can qualify and work out in working life after school is very relevant just for our school.
