In this projekt named "New WBL" nine partners in five european countries develope work-based learning models to serve as an instrument of policy guidance. Participating countries are Slovenia, Bulgaria and Latvia. The aim of the project ist to enable these countries to promote reforms in the area of vocational education and training. Work-based learing ist intended to be integrated much stronger in the future. To meet the needs of the labour market in an appropriate way there ist the plan not to look for an "onesize fits all" model, but to identify three separate approaches. Different national or even regional as well as sectoral requirements can be met more precisely in that way. It is planned to analyse the existing national VET systems, to have a survey of the labour market in the three countries. Study visits will go to Germany and Finland. Finally, three models for how work-based learning can be integrated into vocational education and training. Project partners are: Slovenian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (cosortium leader), Slovenian Institute for Vocational Education and Training (CPI), Employers Confederation/Latvia, National Centre for Education/Latvia, Institute for Initial and Continuing Training of Persons in International Organisations (ITIPO)/Bulgaria, Dobrich Chamber of Commerce and Industry/Bulgaria, Regional Inspectorate of Education/Bulgaria, Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB)/Germany, WinNova Vocational Training Centre/Finland.
