MObility for Vocational and Educational Training
Start date: Nov 1, 2014,
End date: Oct 31, 2016
The project MOVET! (MObility for Vocational and Educational Training) involves the Province of Reggio Emilia, 13 technical and professional high schools of the province, the Emilia-Romagna Region, the Chamber of commerce of Reggio Emilia, the main local trade associations, as well as 10 EU hosting partners and, with them, several European SMEs interested in a transnational dimension of the business and labour market.
The level of territorial cooperation in Reggio Emilia is particularly high and lively, economic categories are quite interested in active participation and collaboration in Vocational Education and Training sector either in transnational projects, as fields that in this proposal can directly dialogue.
The professional competences requested by local entrepreneurs reflects the complexity and diversification of the economic framework in our province, mainly devoted to manufacture but also to tertiary sector, territorial qualification and welfare.
MOVET! in fact expresses this complexity and diversification in contents and objectives of learning, which are and will be in line with several specializations of schools, but customized.
It replies to a common need expressed by the partnership to grow up and train young people open to dialogue, able to become EUROPEAN CITIZENS AND WORKERS in a common job market more free and integrated. One of the aim of the project is to overcome language and cultural barriers, which continue to obstacle the transnational mobility of the European labour market, slowing down the internationalization process, then the FULL COMPETITIVENESS of the local economic framework, especially because it is composed mostly by micro and small companies. Those companies, in the framework of a DEVELOPMENT which should be INCLUSIVE (Europe 2020), need new competences in order to stimulate further innovation, to benefit of opportunities from the single market, to translate the environmental challenges in opportunities and to take advantage from the market development. (see 10 principles of Small Business Act).
We need to start from the young people which, with MOVET!, will have the opportunity of a professional and personal growth, through a language-cultural in-depth training related to the hosting country and a traineeship abroad in European SMEs lasting 1 month for students and 3 months for recent graduates. Furthermore, his experience would let them to develop those life skills which are necessary to become fully-fledged European citizens and to enter the EU labour market.
Therefore MOVET! is in line with the “Youth Guarantee”, it answers to the requirement of competitiveness and internationalization of our companies and, at the same time, offers to young people the tools to grow as individuals and access the labor world with better perspectives and with an experience portfolio and validated skills which are clear and recognizable in the contexts of education, training and job placement.
MOVET! in fact collects the advice to apply ECVET not only for the language education, but also for the mobility and training experience, extending its implementation to informal context of learning.
