Project
In an "ERASMUS+" program the EU promotes "Strategic Partnerships in Vocational Education and Training" to improve vocational training in Europe. The Institute for Vocational Education and Training at the University of Rostock, under the responsibility of Prof. Dr. Franz Kaiser, is cooperating over a period of 18 months with several universities that offer academic studies for vocational teaching professions. The partner countries are Finland (Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences, Helsinki), Norway (University of Oslo - OsloMet), Spain (University of Valencia) and Sweden (University of Linköping) as well as the associated partners from Switzerland (University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland and University of Teacher Education Bern). The project started with a virtual kick-off meeting on 21 October 2020. The project’s aim is to analyze the challenges vocational schoolteachers are facing in the partner countries and to exchange good practice examples on the following topics: Promoting civic engagement: Ways of promoting civic engagement and critical thinking in the training of vocational training personnel. Work-based learning: Approaches through which pedagogical and practical measures can support teacher students in order to better integrate learning at the workplace into training processes. Continuous professional development: Design of teacher training courses to ensure that VET professionals update their knowledge and skills in technological, organizational, pedagogical and social terms. "Career guides" for trainees and learners: Measures how vocational training personnel can support learners in shaping their future careers. Integration of disadvantaged people: Ways in which teacher training can promote the integration of disadvantaged groups. Digitization in the workplace and in learning: Digital strategies of supporting the above-mentioned issues.
