In Kvam there is a lot to do, especially if you like hiking, skiing, fishing, playing football and volleyball. The glacier Folgefonna is not far away and the students go there every year. Still, if you prefer city life, Bergen, the second largest city in Norway is just an hour away by car.

The department of Vocational Studies in Norheimsund has around 100 students divided into three different vocational programme areas. It all began in 1949 with the vocational programmes of Building and Construction and Mechanics. The school is situated next to the famous waterfall Steinsdalsfossen and the lake of Movatnet in the agricultural area of Steinsdalen. The parish center of Norheimsund is 3 km from the school.

We offer the following programmes:


  • Programme for Electricity and Electronics
  • Programme for Health and Social Care
  • Programme for Technical and Industrial Production


  • Programme for Electrical Power
  • Programme for Health Care Worker
  • Programme for Industrial Production

The normal course progression in vocational education programmes is two years at school and two years as an apprentice. When you have completed your second year at school, you can apply for an apprenticeship in certified training establishments/ certified companies and workplaces. It is also possible for students in vocational studies to go on to a third year at school for supplementary studies qualifying for higher education.

The lessons in the vocational programme subjects take place in large and well equipped workshops with modern machines and tools. In their second year, the students may establish their own pupil enterprises. In the pupil enterprises, the students gain knowledge on how to run their own enterprise at the same time as they learn more about their vocational programme and which opportunities and demands that exist in their field of vocation. The students have used the income from their pupil enterprises to finance study trips, many of them abroad to countries such as the USA, Lithuania, Spain, Malta and Austria.
