Logistics and Overland Transport Network for Training "Blue Collars" (LogOnTrain)
Start date: Apr 29, 2013, End date: Dec 30, 2014 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project aim is to foster socio-economic development through the development of labour market potential with special focus to cooperation between research and educational institutions and businesses in order to raise the quality of workforce human resources.The main reason for underdevelopment of cross-border trade is the lack of skilled workforce ("blue collar" labour) in the companies that otherwise would be able to enhance cross-border and international transport and logistics, freight forwarding, customer servicing and thus tighten cross-border economy links. There exist vocational schools training transport and logistics in border areas. Still, companies employing vocational school graduates are often dissatisfied with the cross-border and international logistics and freight-forwarding skills of their employees. Achievements: 1. Curricula and training vocational programmes upgraded up to modern international standards and synchronised with those of university level to meet the demands of haulage and rail companies 2. Qualification of trainers of transport, logistics, freight-forwarding, warehousing, enhanced through the following measures: - Summer school - 6 master classes - 6 lectures by university professors in vocational schools teaching logistics and transport 3. Development of up-to-date teaching methods - Access to available simulation, modelling and IT-based software - Introduction of package laboratory IT-programme of Valga County Vocational Training Centre to the public - Introduction of RFID programme of St Petersburg State University of Telecommunications - Adaptation of railway costs calculation IT system of St Petersburg State Transport University 4. Publicity measures undertaken to attract the attention of target groups and wider audience - 3 seminars for relevant companies and local/regional authorities - 2 promotion campaigns - Project website - Participation in international/regional logistics and transport events - International forum "High qualified blue collars - a creative resource for modern cross-border logistics".
