The Promote WBL partnership are making great progress in developing tools and learning resources for VET teachers, trainers and professionals across Europe. Following our recent phase of research and engagement with various stakeholders that work in, and with, the VET sector, we have been able to use this data and greater understanding of the challenges ahead to produce our framework for an online learning programme.
During our recent cross-partnership meeting, held in Matera, Italy, on 4th-5th April 2017, the strategic team analysed these findings and together evaluated areas to focus on for our online course to best support individuals and organisations working in the industry to produce high quality work-based learning opportunities for young people.
Using transferable, entrepreneurial skills as a core strand of the learning programme, we will be developing modules that can help VET teachers and other professionals to improve their capacity in engaging with employer organisations, developing meaningful relationships with business, identifying and improving entrepreneurial skills in young people and helping to plan for positive progress for both learners and businesses.
Our plan is to start developing the content of the programme over the summer of 2017, ready to test and pilot in autumn. The ambition is to produce a course that has real impact for the VET sector and helps institutions to produce great quality opportunities for both industry and young people, developing the workforce for today and the future.
