Lifelong Learning Programme The European Commission adopted a new Lifelong Learning Programme for the period 2007 – 2013 that replaced the former Socrates, Leonardo da Vinci and e-learning programmes which were in place until the end of 2006. The Lifelong Learning Programme comprises four sectoral programmes, the transversal programme and the Jean Monnet programme:   Lifelong Learning Programme Comenius School education

Erasmus Leonardo da Vinci Higher education Initial and further and further studies vocational education and training

Grundtvig Adult education

Transversal programme Four major spheres of activity: education policy (Cedefop, Arion etc.), language learning, ICT, dissemination of information. Jean Monnet programme Three major spheres of activity: Jean Monnet activities, European institutions, and European associations.   The total budget for the Lifelong Learning Programme is 6,970 billion euro for the period 2007–2013. The objective of the Lifelong Learning Programme is to contribute through lifelong learning to the development of the Community as an advanced knowledge-based society, with sustainable economic development, more and better jobs and greater social cohesion. It aims to foster interchange, cooperation and mobility between education and training systems within the Community, so they become a world quality reference. The Education Exchanges Support Foundation administers the Lifelong Learning Programme in Lithuania. The objectives of the Foundation are to gain benefits from international cooperation, administer programmes and disseminate results of activities. The Leonardo da Vinci programme was set up to support people that participate in vocational education and training and further vocational education by helping them to acquire and use knowledge, skills and qualifications; and also to promote personal professional development and increase possibilities of employment and participation in the European labour market. The main objective of the programme is to unite institutions of various European countries including local authorities, employers’ organisations and other public organisations in preparing the policy of future vocational education and training.

Mobility projects of the Leonardo da Vinci programme The mobility projects offer a possibility to visit 31 European countries participating in the programme for the purpose of professional development and improvement of professional knowledge and skills, as well as the possibility to participate in practical traineeship in enterprises, become familiar with innovations and new technologies in the sphere of vocational education and training, make new contacts and exchange experience with colleagues. The Leonardo da Vinci mobility projects are intended for three target groups: 1. IVT – mobility of trainees in initial vocational education and training (minimum duration of visits is from 2 to 39 weeks); 2. PLM – mobility of people in the labour market (minimum duration of visits is from 2 to 26 weeks); 3. VETPRO – mobility of professionals in vocational education and training (minimum duration of visits is from 1 to 6 weeks). While assessing mobility project application of the Leonardo da Vinci programme in 2008, national priorities were given to project proposals aimed at: • Integration of socially isolated groups into the labour market; • Improvement of business education; • Integration of information and communication technologies (ICT) in vocational education and training; • Preparation for vocational skills competition (Euroskills); • Grant applications; • Applications from institutions of Alytus, Utena, Telšiai, Marijampolė and Tauragė counties. In 2008, the Education Exchanges Support Foundation received 105 applications for Leonardo da Vinci programme mobility projects. 99 of the submitted applications complied with the eligibility requirements. The Education Exchanges Support Foundation, regarding the proposal of the Leonardo da Vinci programme evaluation committee and the evaluation of independent experts, selected 74 projects for financing. According to the ratio of submitted and selected project applications under the Leonardo da Vinci mobility projects competition Grant award procedure for 2008, the overall success rate is fairly high–70 percent of applications were financed.

Transfer of innovation projects of the Leonardo da Vinci programme Transfer of innovation projects are multilateral projects with the aim to improve training systems and focus on transfer of innovations in the vocational education and training area, including linguistic, cultural and legal adaptation of innovative products and processes created under different conditions for national needs. The objective of the transfer of innovation project is to improve the quality and attractiveness of the European vocational education and training systems by adapting and integrating the innovative content or results from previous Leonardo da Vinci or other innovative projects into public or private vocational education and training systems and companies at national, local, regional or sectoral level. In 2008, the Education Exchanges Support Foundation received 18 applications under the Leonardo da Vinci transfer of innovation projects, i.e. seven applications more than in 2007. This year, two applications did not comply with the eligibility criteria and the remaining 16 were assessed by independent external experts. The Education Exchanges Support Foundation, while taking into consideration the proposal of the Leonardo da Vinci programme selection commission, as well as the decision of the European Commission and an evaluation of independent experts selected five projects for financing. Funds allocated to the financing of these projects amount to 1,164,633 euro. This year, 17 Lithuanian organisations participated in the competition. One of them–the Lithuanian Labour Market Training Authority under the Ministry of Social Security and Labour of the Republic of Lithuania–submitted two applications. Other applications were submitted by organisations from Vilnius, Kaunas, Šiauliai, Utena and Kėdainiai districts. Distribution of applications of transfer of innovations project by cities 2

Partnership projects of the Leonardo da Vinci programme Partnership projects are small-scale projects which focus on cooperation among institutions working in the field of vocational education and training and participating in the Lifelong Learning Programme and seeking mutual benefits. Results achieved during the Leonardo da Vinci partnership projects are later developed and used in further activities as “products” created by the partnership. The Leonardo da Vinci partnership projects fill the existing gap in activities under the Leonardo da Vinci programmes (i.e. mobility projects and transfer of innovation projects), as they enable wider-scale cooperation in the sphere of vocational education and training (than that within the scope of mobility projects) without requiring a high budget as is the case in transfer of innovation projects. Partnerships can be formed while seeking to continue cooperation, based on which, useful results are created during mobility projects; or alternatively, partnership projects can be the first step towards the transfer of innovation projects. The most important attention of vocational education and training partnership projects under the Leonardo da Vinci programme is paid: 1. Improvement of quality and attractiveness of vocational education and training; 2. Development and implementation of common tools for vocational education and training; 3. Strengthening of mutual learning; 4. Involvement of all interested parties. In 2008, 76 applications under the Leonardo da Vinci partnership projects were submitted, including 11 applications, where Lithuanian organisations wished to par­ ticipate as project coordinators, and 65 applications, where Lithuanian organi­sations wished to participate as partners. 72 of the applications complied with formal eligibi­ lity requirements and further participated in the competition. The Education Exchange Support Foundation, while taking into consideration the decision of the European Commission, as well as evaluations of independent experts and the proposal of the Leonardo da Vinci programme selection commission, selected 16 projects for financing–three projects will be coordinated by Lithuanian organisations, and Lithuanian organisations will participate as partners in 13 further projects.

In 2008, the grant envisaged for Leonardo da Vinci programme partnership projects amounted to 220,000 euros. 197,000 euros were awarded to projects that received the highest ratings among all countries participating in the Lifelong Learning Programme. By the decision of the European Commission, if at least one partner is short of funds, neither partners of the same country will be subsidised. Therefore, the total amount of grant under the programme has decreased. According to submitted partnership project applications, the requested grant amounted to 923,000 euros. The total amount requested in applications for financing the projects exceeded the awarded amount by about 79%. 95 Compendium of Leonardo da Vinci programme projects financed in 2008

The objective of the project Quality in Vocational Education and Training Systems (QUAVETS) is to bring together a diverse and rich range of experience and expertise from six countries–Norway, Iceland, UK, Spain, Portugal and Lithuania–and to address the concept of quality of education and training (quality indicators), in four study programmes: Construction, Tourism, Social Care and Health, and Food and Restaurant. The focus will be on: a) experience and views of trainees regarding quality, b) quality expectations of employers in this field of study, c) Project description

teachers’ definitions of quality, d) and the views of work place instructors regarding quality. The group is expected to evaluate and reconsider quality indicators within the four study sectors. The revision of indicators will help us increase effectiveness, transparency, recognition and mobility within and across countries concerned with common competences of skilled workers; it is also a means to diminish or scale down the gap between providers of education in work placement learning and school based learning. This project will lead the way to further development and implementation of quality indicators in our four VET-systems. Results of the project: • Definitions of qualification indices of the curricula of four sectors; • Questionnaires in six European languages on

EU Partners involved in e-learning for e-working promotion have formed a partnership to organise joint workshops and meetings; this partnership focuses on discussions related to development of an innovative e-learning package (module) that will help promote e-work in Europe. During the project, all partners will organise a two day workshop in their country, where the project team will share experiences, discuss project related issues, and work together on chapters of the HEP-Handbook for e-Working Promotion–the final output of the project. Between workshops, partners have assigned fieldwork to conduct (e.g. collecting good/ bad examples of e-work, collecting information, creating publications, surveying results and creating summaries for other partners). The HEP manual will have IV chapters (I. e-work practices in EU countries, II. e-worker competency dictionary to assist development of the e-working curriculum, III. e-learn to e-work, IV. guidelines for Cb e-learning development for potential e-workers).

Project description

This project is a follow-up project involving several training centres in the partner cities after a joint LdV pilot project in 2005 (Obinelli, institution responsible for the project XARXA Barcelona), which created mutual trust for the next step in building closer relationships through student exchanges (LdV trainee mobility application 2008) and development of a mutual concept for recognition of competences obtained during their work placements abroad. The partnership is an activity for teachers’ mobility, which is supposed to increase the number of mobility students, and includes a concept for mutual recognition. In order to judge and certify this project in a qualified manner–skills, knowledge and competences will have to be defined. This catalogue of elements must be agreed upon by the partnership members. For this reason trainers must get together regularly.

Products/results of the project

Preparation of CD containing: • list and description of skills, knowledge and competences necessary for specialists of IT, electricity and electronics; • description of how these skills should be evaluated in credits in order to implement the basics of ECVET; • list of criteria for choosing enterprises for practical training.

The project “Coach in VET” aims to develop guidelines for tool coaching in VET and make them accessible to systems in partner countries. Coaching in vocational education and training (VET) is becoming increasingly important. It is a flexible, yet specifically applicable tool, which arouses interest and receives much appreciation. As a result, it has replaced counselling for learners in VET to a great extent. Furthermore, it has become a tool for self-reflection of management boards in the system of VET. It meets employees’ and members of organisations’ common needs when it comes to the Project description

question of how life and work should be organised. Many teachers in VET are not yet prepared to live up to the role of vocational education pedagogue. Personnel in vocational education need to be professionalised. The demand for counselling is decreasing; coaching has superseded offers of counselling for the customer and is currently replacing offers of further education (CE). Training related to, for example, time management, communication, coping with conflicts, and other soft skills; is no longer carried out in terms of courses or workshops. Instead, individual or group coaching is offered. A website of management-related information with the slogan Coach in VET. It will be possible to download the material published on this website
