VERTICE - Language Skills for Vocational Training Placements

The VERTICE project will develop training methodology for language teachers/trainers, specifically working with young people preparing for a vocational training placement or exchange in another European country.An analysis of existing language training materials will be undertaken, whereupon both end results and opinions of individual beneficiaries will be considered. Both 'sending' and 'receiving' organisations will be contacted during this exercise.A series of flexible, didactic language materials will be developed (in ES & IT) with the 'content of vocational training' being a focal point. Three particular professions have been selected by the project upon which the developed materials will be based: Kitchen Assistant, Waiter/Waitress and Garden/Pool Maintenance Worker.A methodological guide for teachers will be produced on the subject of language teaching where a particular profession or vocation is at the centre of such teaching. The guide will further cover: active learner participation in language learning; individual and group activities and a testing of potential language learners (language level perception, motivation testing).All language materials produced by the project will be output on CD-Rom in ES & IT and will be aimed at both language learners and other 'indirect' beneficiaries (host families, fellow workers and language companions).Dissemination will comprise a 'training of trainers' seminar (presenting the end project results), use of existing partner networks and respective partner websites and articles to relevant press and journals.
