About us

In 2006 the Chamber of Skilled Crafts Lüneburg-Stade founded the Center for International Vocational Education of Lower Saxony (NieZiB) with the financial support of the European Social Fundings (ESF) to promote and organize periods of learning for apprentices, craftsmen and companies within the European Union. Since 2009 the Chamber of Skilled Crafts Braunschweig-Lüneburg-Stade is also part of the so-called Mobility Coach Project “Mobilitätsberatung – Berufsbildung ohne Grenzen”, currently co-funded by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy. Mobility coaches in Braunschweig and Lüneburg successfully proceed the work of the former “NieZiB” with mobility projects in many European countries.
