Special VET is the project Erasmus +, KA1, which promotes the development of vocational education. It is prepared by the Ljubljana School for the Deaf. The project will last 24 months and involves 32 participants of which 18 students, all with special needs. Students will be on practical trainings in similar schools in Lithuania, Turkey and Macedonia for 14 days. In Lithuania there will be carpenters in Turkey, students of the program media technicans and in Macedonia students from metalworker and textile. Learning outcomes will be confirmed by the ECVET system and the Europass. Deaf students will be supported by interpreters for the Slovenian Sign Language. Students with autism and speech-languageproblems will be integrated in a new learning environment with a help of 2 accompanied teachers. Teachers of our vocational secondary school, the only one of this kind in Slovenia, can share their experiences and gain new knowledge only with colleagues from similar schools accros the Europe. We are therefore prepared mobilities in two related schools, in Portugal and the UK. In line with the development plan there will be the five-day job shadowing activities in order to acquire the following knowledge: knowledge of new programs: Assistant in biotechnology and supply, confectioner, gastronomy and hotel services and gardener. They are going to bring the examples of good practice in the Slovenian environment. They will also learn about the adjustments that these programs are preparing for students with special needs and find out different ways how partners develop alternative forms of learning: working in the school restaurant and bakery. Two teachers will be teaching in a vocational school in Turkey, in the program media technicians. We plan to carefully manage the project in all its phases, with an emphasis on the preparation of all participants, the dissemination which begins on the first day of the project and during the whole project and also after its end. Dissemination starts in our own organization, during the life of a project it will be expanded to other Slovenian schools, andwith our broad network even to other European partners of our KA1 and KA2 projects. A wide range of interested stakeholders, we will reach by newspaper articles and also by publishing at the national and European platforms: EACEA, School Education Gateway, Geneva (Special Needs), Methods (Danish side for professional projects), E-Twinning,. Also we will publish on Moodle, blog and website of our Special VET project. We are going to evaluate all phases of the project, because our goal is the continuous improvement of our work in Erasmus +, all our activities will be monitored by electronic forms.The project Special VET addresses the objectives of the program Erasmus+ and also objectives of the Europa 2020 will maintain its sustainability through a new seminar and a range of materials that will be shared openly in an online classroom Moodle.The project managed by Ljubljana School for the Deaf is extremely valuable because it allows our students a quality practical placements supported by sign language interpreters.
