EPALE Event Workplace Learning


As part of our thematic focus on workplace learning, we want to hear from you – the EPALE community – about any successful projects, initiatives and programmes.

Have you been involved in a successful project that aimed to improve or introduce innovation in workplace learning? Perhaps you know of an initiative aiming to train mentors and employers to provide workplace learning? We invite everyone to share their good practice examples and help us build a unique and valuable resource on the topic.

Share your successful project results in the comments below on 13 November and help to inspire the adult learning community across Europe! EPALE Thematic Coordinator Andrew McCoshan will provide live moderation on the day from 10am to 16pm CET.

All the stories shared here will be included in a summary article on EPALE.


**Comments will be open already on 11 November for those of you who cannot join us on the 13th.

That's a great point. I think it depends on the project itself and it's activities. 
With many projects creating tool kits/guides/resources can be a good method. Distributing these, both internally and externally (eg through EPALE's Resource Center) helps not only your own organisation to learn from the project but for external people to gain from your learning too. Equally you can write blogs to share your take away points with others. 
Another possibility it to look at creating a second project to build upon the first project's outcomes/activities.

The project called ‘Back to Learning’ will be implemented by the Government Office of Békés County in an international partnership with 8 members. The main objective of the project is that through the learning from each other partner organizations expand their toolkit and methods applied in developing key competences. They share their best practices and operational experiences applied in the field of cooperation system of organizations, the organization of trainings aimed for competence development, curriculum development, the sensitizing of professionals engaged in development and those in a position to improve the situation low-skilled adults, and in further professional trainings. 

As a result of the project, the professional work of the partner organizations can be renewed, the individual and organizational competences developed in the project can contribute to more adults taking part in training courses offering qualifications that meet the needs of the labour market by developing their key competences.

Muskuloskeletal disorders show high prevalence in caregivers and are related to the performance of patient handling techniques. 
eUlift-app is an innovative approach to learn patient handling techniques to (future) caregivers. 
The app has an e-book with all evidence-based information: anatomy and function, general ergonomics, biomechanics, general causes of back pain, pathology and dysfunction, pain education, postures, natural movements and care tasks. The book serves as an theoretical framework and is used in education. 
The app guides you to assess a patients mobility with the valid Banner Mobility Assessment Tool and helps you choose a patient handling technique. 
Several 3D animations present basic postures and  movements where you can have a close look in how to perform. You can rewind the animation, have a closer look to the position of the foot and practice along. 
Several basic caretasks have been animated per patients mobility. 
Our app is illustrated with 3D avatars: Nina (caregiver) and Jacob (patient).

Fully accessible in English, Dutch, Spanish, Hongarian and soon in French through our website: or in the Android and Apple stores  -   For Free. 

The project Eulift was funded with Eramus+ KA2.

As far as work-based learning is concerned with regards to Apprenticeship, the Department of Secondary Technical and Vocational Education has linked the programmes offered by the Apprenticeship Scheme with the programmes offered by the Evening Schools of Technical and Vocational Education, which operate as second chance schools. The graduates of the Apprenticeship Scheme are entitled to attend the Evening Schools of Technical and Vocational Education with part of their education and training (prior learning) acquired in the context of the Apprenticeship Scheme being recognized and transferred. As a result, they are given the opportunity to complete upper secondary education in one or two years.
