Key Skills for Mobility
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

“K-Skills” builds upon the following EU guidelines: - the need to provide the citizens with the skills and competence that the European economy and society need to keep up being competitive and innovative, as well as helping to encourage social cohesion and integration. - the need to promote the educational mobility of every youngster within the whole educational system, as well as in non formal environments such as work and youth participation. - the need to upgrade the competences and to improve the conditions for job creation, for which further progress should be achieved in order to enhance the matching of education and training to the labour market. the necessity to enable people to acquire, update and complement the key competences, both in vocational education as in any other form of education, highlighting as one of the substantial challenges for the future the increase of transnational mobility of VET learners OVERALL OBJECTIVE To improve the efficiency of the European VET systems within the ET 2020 framework, enlarging and improving the mobility of intermediate VET students through the development of a more comprehensive training, which will improve their access and permanence in the labour market. SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES 1. Attain a common framework for the different Eurpoean VET models, in terms of key and transversal competences as regards to mobility. 2. Develop training itineraries of the key and transversal competencies as regards to VET mobility. 3. Test and measure the quality and suitability of the training itineraries to the specific needs of VET students. 4. Raise awareness throughout young VET students and their families towards the benefits of mobility. 5. Facilitate the social integration within a multi-cultural environment of the VET student population and improve their employability profile and their future employment opportunities. 6. Generate a significant impact over the rest of the student population, their environments and the VET systems. OBJECTIVES PURSUED WITHN ERSMUS+: 1. Increase the capacity and the relevance of the learning process in education and training. 2. Provide and advise in key competencies: basic competences, transversal competences, entrepreneurship, languages, digital knowledge, etc. 3. Strengthen the links education/training with the work environment. 4. Promote the inter-regional and inter-sector structured cooperation OUTPUTS 1.- A Web page that will serve as communication during the project and after the completion of the same, especially aimed at the educational community. 2.- Identification of the transversal competencies for mobility of EVT students. 3.- Research on the transversal competencies for mobility within the different models of European Vocational Training. 4.- Training itineraries in transversal competencies for mobility, tailored to the social integration of young VET students. 5.- Guide for the integration of transversal competencies for mobility within the VET programme. 6. Specific training for VET teachers. 7. Modular training for VET students. TARGET GROUPS: The main target group are VET students; i.e., young people involved in the 2nd year of middle grade with an average age of 18 years and close to accessing the labor market. The second group are VET teachers, involved through a training action to better understand what aspects need to be worked with their students and get more interest in the same mobility during the study phase, and a second sensitization. The third and last group is the families of VET students. PARTNERSHIP: The partnership is made up six entities, Austria, Germany, UK, Italy and Spain, all VET agents in their regions / States who develop European mobility programmes. Thus, in addition to sharing, if not entirely, largely, public intervention objectives, form a partnership that shares similar characteristics in several key areas to work from the perspective of developing transversal competencies for VET pathways. FORESEEN RESULTS: * Increased motivation for mobility of VET students. * More accurate information to families of students. * VET Centers also use benchmarking as a tool for continuous improvement, and in this regard will be communicated in detail the characteristics of the project carried out with all the results and intellectual products generated to be public wide shared. The estimated duration for the Project is 24 months.
