Our Pan European Adult Training and Placements Programme is an integral part of City College Plymouth’s European Development Plan: a three year strategic plan to professionally develop our staff & enhance our learners’ employability prospects in the European labour market. Each carefully planned European activity directly meets our College’s Strategic Priorities to address labour market requirements, targeting skills gaps & developing enterprising, innovative training.This has produced a diverse programme of learning mobilities & partnership activities in vocational sectors with skills gaps & growth opportunities. It will be delivered with partners from sixteen countries representing the VET training sector & enterprises.Key Objectives:• to deliver targeted staff mobilities in key areas that are growth sectors and/or face skills shortages• to broaden staff understanding & competence of European practices & training, whilst meeting professional development needs• to enable staff to gain best practice, undertake training & real-life work experience, raising their aspirations & improving their employment optionsThis project will facilitate staff mobilities for 25 College staff: 4 members of staff who currently work with adults who are unemployed:6 members of staff who are currently working with adults who have severe learning difficulties and disabilities 5 members of staff who are currently supporting adult apprentices5 members of staff who work with adult learners in priority sectors such as Engineering & STEM; Tourism & Hospitality; Creative Industries; each is a growth area &/or an area of skills shortages in our City.5 business support staff wanting to undertake professional development relating to the growth and improvement in quality for adult education.
