The Project “Technology and Methodology at the Service of Education and Citizenship” was created due to a range of common needs felt by the four schools involved, which Educational Project aims at the need to overcome some difficulties and indicates some organizational aspects to be improved. Each school has its own key-competences, which can result in a very positive strength, contributing to the correction of the aspects that need to be improved. The general objectives of this Project are: To overcome the difficulties identified: to increase the students’ motivation; combat the school dropout; create innovative pedagogi’cal practices; provide the group of teachers with creative competences; give an answer to the educational challenges of the 21st century; promote the school’s internationalization.


Growing the Market in Accessible Tourism

GROWMAT Currently more than million citizens in the European Union are aged between 55 and 80 years, representing about 25% of the total population. This change in demographics is increasing tourism demand which opens new and emerging markets. Recessions tend to hit younger workers harder than older. Indeed, EU youth unemployment is 24%, twice as high as the adult jobless rate. Nowadays, self-employment is often seen as a way out of unemployment. Many young people embark on entrepreneurship, with varying degrees of success. DG Enterprise and Industry (DG-ENTR) in 2012-2013 built a comprehensive picture of Accessible Tourism in the European Union. This research convinced the partners that there was an enormous potential to grow the market in Accessible Tourism, giving much needed work to young people, providing new business opportunities to new and existing entrepreneurs.

Developing Life and Employability competences through mobility

LIFE ONLINE There is increasing demand for international skills suited to the global economy. Employers recognize that mobilities can provide more internationalized workers with new approaches to new working methods, better language skills, cultural awareness and understanding of the economic profile of the sector from a global perspective. The project will develop a new on-line learning programme on employability and entrepreneurship, design curricula and learning materials, built on existing good practices - piloted with target groups - teachers/Trainers and young people. E-learning as a methodology is relatively under-utilised but is seen as an innovative medium to prepare young people for the world of work.

Center: CEBANC, Politeknika Txorierri Contact: Marijo Irastorza Insausti Kepa Larrondo E-mail: mjirastorza@cebanc.com klarrondo@txorierri.net Project website: http://lifeonline.education/

This project seeks to close this gap harnessing digital technologies to deliver employability/entrepreneurship skills to encourage young people to broaden their employment prospects.

Mainstreaming Student Entreneurship

MASTER Center: CEBANC Contact: MARIJO IRASTORZA INSAUSTI E-mail: mjirastorza@cebanc.com Project website: www.studentstartup.how

Europe needs more entrepreneurial citizens: creative, confident individuals who innovate to solve problems and convert ideas into value across enterprises, organizations and the public sector. The entrepreneurship support system is increasingly complex and those VET teachers/trainers whose students have promising start up ideas are often unsure how to cultivate this, or refer students for further support outside their own institution. Objectives: • Develop a needs and opportunities analysis of integrated, cross sector approach to student entrepreneurship education in the VET sectors. • Create 5 Regional Alliances • Develop and pilot test a multichannel communication and capacity building campaign to provide with the knowledge and skills needed to integrate aspects of entrepreneurship education into all subjects and disciplines. • Develop a Student Entrepreneurship Support Toolkit and pilot its activities. • ●Widely disseminate project outputs.

Technology for Assisting Seniors

TECHSenior TECHSenior Populations around the world are rapidly ageing. Economic development, improved lifestyles, advances in healthcare and medicine, including reduced infant mortality, have resulted in a continuous increase in life expectancy across Europe during the last century. This process has been going on for longer in Europe than in most other parts of the world, placing the EU-28 among the world leaders for life expectancy. According to Eurostat, life expectancy at birth in the EU-28 was estimated at 80.6 years in 2013. This project will develop a training program based on the concept of “Independent living” that will make more old people able to live a more autonomous life.

Center: CENTRO DE FORMACIÓN DE ADMINISTRACIÓN Y HOSTELERÍA S.L., CDEA Contact: MARIJO IRASTORZA INSAUSTI E-mail: mjirastorza@cebanc.com Project website: http://techsenior.eu/

ProBased

Center: CIFP DON BOSCO Contact: JASO LARRUSCAIN / OLATZ IDIGORAS E-mail: j.larruscain@fpdonbosco.com / o.idigoras@fpdonbosco.com

This project aims to change the learning methodology in vocational education training in order to prepare qualified workers with transversal skills and achieve the European Framework of Key Competences defined in 2006. Project Based Learning (PBL) is a learning approach in which students try to solve the problems they may encounter in their lives in a scenario context by linking them with different disciplines in the classroom environment. The consortium members, from Turkey, Portugal, Lithuania, Italy and Spain, aim at applying the PBL approach as a creative way, establishing the bases, such as, material, basic curriculum, training teachers from different countries and promoting the exchange and innovative ideas in VET.

12


E-(m)PACT

E-(m)PACT project is about Healthcare Education (HC), simulation and media embedded. HC education has always been a challenge because of the dynamics of the work force, the different training needs, competences and professional levels. Students cannot practice their skills directly on the beneficiaries of their services as they are human beings, often in health condition; thus the importance of this project. • 1. to improve the quality of education in the field of HC by delivering tools and guidance for the trainers and students on how to implement and work with simulation.

E(m)PACT

Technology continues to dominate much of our daily lives. To be able to compete worldwide, Europe needs more highly skilled technicians. We need to use the talents we have available, especially the talents of women. The current low participation of women in STEM fields is a problem for most European countries. In the Erasmus+ KA2 project GirlsTech this theme is addressed. Eight countries share their knowledge to improve their own policies. The project is not about developing a new universal tool, but to focus on peer learning activities, to find out which approaches might be suitable for the participating countries.


Social Action for Life quality training and Tools

SALTO The European SALTO project is based on the necessary adaptation of the social and healthcare workers for the care and the support of the elderly people and persons with disabilities, and in particular for those affected by the Alzheimer’s disease or presenting Autism or psychiatric disorders. The SALTO project aims at generating solutions to the psychosocial needs of these public to complement cares and treatments. It pretends to make the social action as lever of the improvement of their life quality, with a multidisciplinary and therapeutic approach enabling the development and the preservation of the physical, psychological, cognitive and social skills

Center: GIZARTE BERRIKUNTZAKO LHII - Hernani Contact: Mikel Pérez E-mail: mperez@hernanilanh.eus Project website: project-salto.blogspot.com

Getting Ready for the European Job Market

Center: Goierri Eskola Contact: Joseba Ramos E-mail: jramos@goierrieskola.eus Project website: http://www.european-jobmarket.info/

The idea for this project was developed by our students and it fits perfectly to the perceptions of the involved partner, which are vocational schools. This project promotes competences which are indispensable for the personal development and the future career of the students. These skills are adding value to the European labour market, social cohesion and active public spirit because they provide flexibility, adaptability, satisfaction and In order to achieve the above mentioned aims we have planned the following activities: • Application training (application documents including CV’s and cover letters; digital application videos) • International contacts with training companies (digital platform for internships and vacation jobs) • Try-out- days in professional practice accommodation with host families to establish sustainable private international contacts • Cultural program (promotion intercultural competences)

of


IC EUVET 2017 – 2020 We observe significant developments in the welfare and health technology area. At the same time, we are facing the paradox that investments are only used marginally in the Western world. Experts point out that we are in a situation where the medicaltechnological latitude is being overtaking by the financial latitude. We can do much more technologically than the budgets and the political will allow.

Center: CIFP MEKA LHII Contact: ENARA IRIONDO E-mail: europa@meka-elgoibar.eus

Perhaps this is the reasons why we observe initial, enthusiastic investments in hardware, while a lot of welfare technology remains unused in care facilities, training centres or home care units. Thus, we observe significant investments in hardware and well as human competences, but in spite of many good initiatives, there is a major problem in connection with implementation. Many technology investments are neither really put to practical use nor integrated into the practical care work. We observe good education and training of the healthcare employees, which is not turned into real competences and better services for the citizens based on practice changes in the workplaces, because the organisation is not geared to render useful and use the increase in knowledge.

EngenderingSTEM

Center: Miguel Altuna Contact: Alaitz Kristobal / Unai Ziarsolo E-mail: akristobal@imaltuna.com uziarsolo@imaltuna.com Project website: http://engenderingstem.eu/

The project aims to share learning and good practice amongst European partners to support Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) operating within the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) sectors to be bolder on gender equality. Evidence shows that greater diversity in the workplace leads to sustainable and inclusive growth and improved productivity and performance. However, SMEs report common challenges to developing more inclusive workplaces include time, resource, access to expertise and awareness of effective practices. The project aims to identify common barriers and associated interventional strategies that have proven to be most effective for improving gender equality in organisations at various stages of engagement. In order to achieve this the project will deliver an evidence based self assessment toolkit, best practice guides and blended learning training solutions to over 2000 participants. A 10% increase in women’s participation in the project stakeholder population is targeted.

WORKSAFE

Center: IKASLAN GIPUZKOA Contact: Sergio Fidalgo E-mail: mobility@ikaslan.net

Developing and implementing a WorkSafe Toolbox and WorkSafe Online Training Course to be used within work based learning within the fields of metal work and construction. Teachers within the technical fields and especially teachers within construction and metal work have raised their concerns when it comes to work safety in companies that receive students/apprentices for work based learning. The mentoring teachers find it difficult to address this issue with the employers/work mentors as they don’t want to be considered as being to interfering. They also feel that they don’t know how to address the issue in a professional and correct manner. The aims of Worksafe are to: • Collect, compare and clarify common standards relating to work safety and point out what standardsare unique for a specific country • Create a WorkSafety Toolbox for metal work and house building that can be used by students, teachers and work mentors before, during and after a work placement. • Create an online worksafety mentoring course.

Growth in WBL triangle

GRIT The GRIT project aims at developing interaction practices during the work placements / work-based learning periods between all the three parties (the student, the school and the work place). The goal of the more frequent and better interaction is to improve both the learning outcomes as well as to support the personal growth and competences of the participants. For the educational institutions it is extremely important to stay in touch with changing needs on job markets as the schools should develop education accordingly, in line with the trends. The GRIT project is both cross-sectoral and cross-cultural: the project members represent both higher education as well as vocational education institutes and come from Finland, Belgium, Estonia and Spain. We will experiment different kinds of digital communication tools inside the work placement triangle. Service Design Thinking as a development tool brings new insights and contents into the interaction between people and organizations.

Center: TKNIKA Contact: Jon Zarraga Bittor Arias E-mail: jzarraga@tknika.eus barias@tknika.eus Project website: www.beehives.de

The aim of Beehives is to Boost European Exchange on HVET and Employer Involvement on Education structures in order to strengthen the Strategic Partnership Triangle. The consortium expects that the project will strengthen HVET all over Europe. The partners believe that the Higher VET sector is a confused policy area in many member countries with HVET offered in several structurally separate sectors, (HE, PHE, VET, CVET) with limited permeability and, in many countries, with limited progression opportunities. The Beehives project is designed to address cooperation and collaboration barriers in the Strategic Partnership Triangle Institutions, Employers and Students - to contribute to the development of skills relevant to labour market needs and equip students with the knowledge and skills relevant for their employability, entrepreneurship and personal development.
