Name of the project:International Benchmarking on CVET - 4 European Regions
Acronym of the Project: IBCVET
Start Date: 01/09/2015
Duration: 24 Months
The aim of the International Benchmarking on CVET - 4 European Regions is to deeply focus on the issues of CVET (Continuing Vocational Education and Training). Particularly, the Project will propose policy solutions for the promotion of adults' participation in continuing education, especially those with less access to training offers. This will be achieved through cooperation and partnership between public authorities and CVET stakeholders from different countries and regions of the EU. The Blue Economy - for its special importance in the partnering countries - has been chosen as the scope of application of the Project.
The specific objectives of the Project are:
- Advancing an agent consultation platform to share knowledge and experience as regards CVET's public policies and strategies (upskilling and reskilling), through the study of coordination mechanisms and the regional translation of the training dynamics in the Blue Economy, in particular the shipbuilding sector;
- Mobilize employers and social partners for the promotion and participation in CVET, boosting awareness-raising and information actions, facilitating their participation in the coordination mechanisms of training provision at national, regional and sectorial level;
- Provide inputs for the construction of more innovative and effective training referential and methodologies in the Blue Economy;
- Produce a set of recommendations for the development of public policy, in particular active employment policy, to promote the access of less qualified adults to LLL and in particular CVET, with a focus on the Blue economy while allowing for demonstrative impact in CVET systems and general policies.
