The "TAD" project offers a VET course for learners who wish to work as external consultants or employees in the tourism sector. The course provides foundational knowledge on the subject of Accessible Tourism, introducing EU policies, concepts, principles and methods for improving tourism environments and services to cater for visitors with specific access requirements. The course content is curated by ENAT, the European Network for Accessible Tourism, and is delivered with a blend of e-Learning and Classroom/Workshop activities. On successful completion of this specialised course (nominally 80 hours, including classroom instruction, supervision and training exercises in tourism businesses), the trainee will obtain the TAD Certificate.

As part of the dissemination phase of the Erasmus + project two rounds of in-house seminars took place on the 15th and 29th of November, 2019. Each seminar consisted of three workshops where the teachers who attended the training courses in Barcelona, Konstanz and Dublin shared their experience and presented new activities and innovative teaching methods to their colleagues.

The E3D+VET project funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus+ programme, Key Action 2 (Strategic Partnerships for Innovation and Exchange of Good Practices) has made  possible to experiment with 3D printing technology within school education in one of the professional institutes (IISS Pio La Torre) of the Palermo area.

Over 80% of care across the EU is provided by partners, relatives and friends. Everyone may be an informal carer at some stage in his or her life. At this moment, having the opportunity to access adapted training can be extremely useful…

A workshop titled "empower citizens in lifelong career guidance centres will take place in Cité des métiers Brussels on December 6, 13:30-16:00.

In November 2019, two colleagues from the Belgian PCVO Het Perspectief (center for adult education) went to Larnaca (Cyprus) as part of the European KA1 project 'Glans met tweede kans' (GLAMET). The purpose of this visit was to carry out a job shadowing / teaching assignment at a school that only provides second-chance education in order to develop and shape the center's second-chance education.

Constellations are very useful tools for working with individuals and teams. The constellations that originate from Bert Hellinger’s work and systematic coaching are nothing but a set of elements that create a pattern and have their own structure. This is a live map of the client that represents his internal relationship landscape.

Werkstatt-Tag - Wir gehören dazu! Pädagog*innen mit Migrationsbiografie: Anerkennung und Teilhabe

"Migranten machen Schule/ Stuttgart" Initiative von Lehrkräften mit Migrationsbiografie

Wir gehören dazu! Pädagog*innen mit Migrationsbiografie: Anerkennung und Teilhabe. Der Werkstatt-Tag ist Gelegenheit, Alltags- und Wissenschaftswissen zu prüfen, Erfahrungen und Ansichten zum Stand von Anerkennung und Teilhabe zu diskutieren. Und „Werkstatt“ bedeutet gemeinsames Arbeiten um am Ende des Werkstatt-Tags über mögliche nächste Schritte zu beraten.

This is a position paper where the notion of developing environmental literacy through inquiry-based practices is explored. The premise is that one would assume that teachers themselves would have to first become environmentally literate before they can effectively provide opportunities for students to engage in activities to develop environmental literacy. As environmental education is predominantly delivered through an interdisciplinary infusion model, the recommendation is for a teacher’s environmental literacy to be developed alongside their inquiry literacy.

Are you a teacher or trainer working with adults? Are you interested in learning about what makes a good adult educator or what learners expect from teachers?

The SET C. project (Strength Empowers Teachers’ Competences in Adult Education, project number: 2017-1-HR01-KA204-035390) is aimed at improving skills and competences of adult educators.

This publication presents the research results on skills and competences needed for effective work in multicultural organisations. 

The research was conducted in five European countries: Poland, Latvia, Italy, Cyprus and the United Kingdom under ERASMUS+ project "Cultural Risk in the Organisation in the Globalisation Era - competences vs. reality" (2018-1-PL01-KA204-051056).

Training Plan for course on free and open source software (FOSS) for small and medium enterprises. This European project initiative aims to help to promote the use of FOSS in business. The purpose of this course is to provide you with an overview of the most important FOSS concepts and solutions that are available today for you to consider and use in your own business. The course is broken down into 5 main units with sub-topics in each unit. Each individual unit contains a summary in advance of a series of lessons on the topic.

The FOSS-BU competence profile outlined here aims to identify and select the knowledge, skills and competences specifically related to the usage of FOSS in the business sector, in full compliance with the ECVET system outlined by the European Commission.

This Synthesis Report is meant to collect and put together the results of the six different Country Reports (for Greece, Germany, Italy, UK, Ireland and Sweden) developed by the partners of the FOSS4SMEs project. Each Country Report, as the main deliverable foreseen by the IO1/A1 ‘Research’ phase, comprises an overarching and comprehensive overview about the different national situations with relation to the usage of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) within SMEs across Europe.

In brief:

  • For informal carers and focused on Alzheimer
  • Short, blended, micro-learning- based: 20 hours= 16h face to face / 4h eLearning
  • Planned for about 6 weeks
  • Available in 4 languages (EN/FR/ES/DE)
  • Free of charge and with an open license (Creative Common 4.0 allowing further changes if non commercial use and distributed under the same license

 

On the basis of the Carer+ Digital Competence Framework, a complete programme structure was developed, containing a total of 5 interrelated modules organised under 3 themes:

  • Foundational skills
  • Managing social care with ITCs
  • Providing home care through ICTs.

The Virtual Learning Environement was created by using Drupal Commons and Moodle 2.5: 5 platforms were created: an original one in English and 4 for the piloting partners in their local languages (France, Italy, Latvia, Romania and Spain).

The team of the Institute for Strategic Research and Education (ISIE) was engaged by E4E@mk Project to conduct an analysis of the current situation and the challenges with a special focus on the legal framework, the resources and other processes and competences within the formal vocational education. The analysis is based on empirical research conducted in the period August - October 2018.

"Etre formateur-formatrice aujourd'hui en Europe"

Dans un monde en perpétuel mouvement où le développement des compétences est nécessaire, la formation est de plus en plus sollicitée. Elle offre aussi de nouvelles formes d'apprentissage. De fait, le métier de formateur est hétérogène. Il évolue et se modifie selon les pays et les contextes.
