The Berufskolleg Bocholt-West was founded over 150 years ago as a commercial college. Since then it has developed to a modern, in our region leading Upper Secondary Vocational College based in Bocholt, a small idyllic town in the north-western part of North-Rhine-Westfalia, Germany. It accommodates various educational programmes putting special emphasis on technology as well as on health and social studies. Currently 2100 students attend our school.The educational programme which intends to cooperate and exchange students with schools abroad is called “Freizeitsportleiter/in” and is part of our Vocational Grammar School. Sports and biology are both taught as higher level courses. After three years, this educational course finishes with the General Qualification for University entrance. These students are usually aged between 15 and 18.We hope to set up contacts and exchanges on a mutual and regular basis with international schools in order to work on collaborative projects focusing on language learning (English and German), sports and culture.
