Moreover, the AHRL will disseminate relevant information to sectoral enterprises supporting Tourism, while cooperating with the Beauty Sectoral Expert Council in information dissemination, advice and recommendation on implementation, assessment of the apprenticeships implementation, as well as assistance regarding the choice of enterprises for work based learning.

We plan to involve Tourism and Beauty sector enterprises and 10 VET schools from all regions of Latvia.
We can identify several stages of the cooperation with VET schools:
- before apprenticeships – to harmonize the curricula with the needs of the industry/companies;
- during apprenticeships – to provide the school-based education through continuous cooperation/communication with companies;
- after apprenticeships – to analyse the progress of apprenticeships, to harmonize the curricula if necessary; and to improve teachers' IT skills.
