Digital competences for a successful adaptation and engagement to on-line vet teaching and learning

ERASMUS+ KA2 – Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices. KA226 – Partnerships for Digital Education Readiness

Project timeline: 1st March 2021 to 28 February 2023 (24 months)

What is the project about?: The aim of this project is to avoid the increase in NEET rates, supporting TVET teachers with an online/blended methodology and itinerary which assures the emotional and transversal competences development of students at risk of drop-out, in order to increase their engagement to education and their employability in the new dynamic and digital labour market. Doing this requires high commitment and collaboration of several stakeholders and experts to generate a scheme that can be easily adopted by VET teachers in all EU countries and that supports them with open trainings and methodological guides and tools.

Expected results:

  1. common framework on the transversal competences associated to the digital competences, key for engagement in education and employment in the actual digital society.
  2. An online Itinerary for transversal skills development of TVET students at risk of drop-out.
  3. An online open MOOC for TVET teachers on the itinerary implementation.
  4. skills assessment on-line tool and methodology for identifying and evaluating online transversal competences development.
