SOSU Adapting to global Market Requirements with VET Traineeship and Staff Training
Start date: Jun 1, 2014,
End date: May 31, 2016
VET staff training (in Eurocom SMART network):
There have been profitable student exchanges during years between the European network colleges, but the working life has expressed the difficulties in understanding the learning goals and evaluation sheets of arriving students, so it is important to clarify the common learning outcomes for the students and to design common evaluation sheets in order to evaluate and validate the learning outcomes, eliminate differences between participating countries and to transfer the credits to the home institutions.
Another important aspect is to improve and secure the quality and quantity of students' mobility by implementing the Ecvet tools. Working with the Ecvet processes before, during and after the students' exchanges will give the teachers and mentoring staff tools to assess, recognize and validate learning outcomes. In this respect it can be made more transparent which knowledge, skills and competences the single student should reach.
The main activities intended comprise the description of knowledge, skills and competences, the suggestions for activity units as well as the detailed work on the structure/content of the assessment documents, the learning agreement and the learning outcomes.
At the same time the involved educational institutes will learn the toolkit of the Ecvet which will enhance the internationalization of the participating partners from Colleges and the World of Work. Therefore the project will take an important role in the improvement of the partners professional, language and social skills, which are needed in building up careers.
We regard our role in providing the professional educational support on a diverse international level as a result our focus is on the support of students in the dual system as well as the VET staff. Previously gained experiences and competences are to be integrated and improved as best practice examples in order to strive for excellence in the future.
IVT participants in this action will be students from our 2 educations; Educator assistant and Social- and Health Care Assistant. They attend one of the colleges in the SOSU network east of Storebaelt. We try in the projects to continue working with topics to enhance and qualify to upgrade competences to labour market needs and to create transparency. The work with especially ECVET, EQF and the documents in Europass will be central. Most of our partners members in the networks EUROCOM Smart and EREIVET. the stays for the students in work placements in the partneres countries last for 5 weeks. The students will be challenged as well professionally as interculturally and their language skills will improve. Students are thes years challenged and they will have to cope with understanding and respecting foreign cultures, ways of life and various characters. It will also create the opportunity to be inspired to apply for work in a foreign country after graduating. Practical and cultural preapration will take place in time before going abroad.
