INTRO TO THE TOOLBOX

What is OBESSU OBESSU – The Organising Bureau of European School Student Unions is the platform for cooperation between the national school student unions active in general secondary and secondary vocational education in Europe. It was founded in April 1975 in Dublin, Ireland and brings together Member and Candidate Organisations from all over Europe. All Member Organisations are independent, national, representative and democratic school student organisations. OBESSU stands:  to represent the school students as stakeholders of their educational systems, and in issues concerning their lives;  to provide the national school student unions with assistance and support and to cooperate for the development of school student representative structures;  to encourage and enable exchange of experience and good practice among the national school students unions;  to promote equal access to education and to strive for the end of all discrimination and injustice within the educational systems;  to contribute to the development of democratic educational systems in Europe, that promote active citizenship in all forms;  to promote solidarity and understanding between young people;  to promote new teaching methods in learning and promote healthy teaching environment

Where does the idea of toolbox come from? Who wrote it? In 2012 OBESSU launched a campaign on Vocational Education and Training called “Claim your voice” - see the video of the campaign launch at the YO!Fest in Brussels here. The campaign was run by OBESSU and its Member Organisations in general, but was coordinated by a Working Group and by a Policy Officer on VET. Together they decided to give a concrete outcome to the campaign and to the huge work OBESSU has been doing on the topic with a toolbox full of ideas, information and concrete tools used during the campaign. Thanks to Tiia - policy officer for VET in the OBESSU Secretariat, Daniele - Board Member in charge, and Giuseppina, Musa and Triin from the Working Group for the hard work. Thanks to Member Organisations and to YOUVET participants for giving concrete inputs and materials for this toolbox.

CLAIM YOUR VOICE Unemployment among young graduates is extensive. Young people are struggling through courses they do not fit in. For many years the EU had an excessive focus of universities. In the meantime, the labour market is in great demand for skilled labour. These are few of the many good reasons to focus on Vocational Education, which approximately 50% of European upper secondary students attend today1.

VET students are first and foremost an utterly under represented group of the students: politicians do not know about their conditions because they are academics, the media does not give them attention and in youth organisations across Europe, academic youth are the majority. By putting focus on the representation of VET students with the Claim your Voice campaign, OBESSU wished to raise awareness for these educational paths at national and European levels. On the one hand, the campaign aimed at encouraging OBESSU member Organisations to work more with VET students and to represent them in their daily political work. With the campaign OBESSU wished to raise the European perception of VET by working closely with stakeholders and advocating for higher quality in VET. The campaign, in brief, wanted to:  raise awareness and respect of Vocational Education and Training;  secure representation of VET students in all decision-making processes concerning them; Vocational Education: a key component of education in the EU, CEDEFOP – European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training. 1

 value the VET systems more and to discuss VET as a viable option to academic studies;  make Vocational Education and Training more attractive to young people in Europe.

Claim your Voice! Stand up for VET! is officially over, but OBESSU’s work with VET will continue

The campaign “Claim your Voice! Stand up for VET!” has been a successful project, as proven above. It has brought the school students and VET students closer to the decision-making processes and opened various interesting discussions. Despite the campaign being officially closed, OBESSU will continue to work in the field of Vocational Education and Training, representing VET students at the European level and supporting national school student organisations in their work for VET.

YOUVET TRAINING Vocational education and training (VET) have been a raising topic in Europe on this last couple years. In OBESSU we decided to arrange a training for young campaigners to give them tools to raise and affect the VET field in a national level. A training was held during February and March in 2013 and it contained 2 parts, online and on-site training. In the online training we had many different sessions which had different topics like Governance of VET, major policies, lobbying and organising events and many more. During these 30 days, participants took part in different sessions online. In these sessions we used different methods and tools such as Lore.com, Google drive and Skype to work effectively, to exchange ideas and also interact with each other to raise a discussion. The second part of YOUVET training was the on-site training which was held on 8th to 10th of March in Brussels. In the on-site training we used knowledge and output from online training to get more in depth

7


on topics in a practical way. We also aimed at creating Action Plans which were afterwards used in a national level to promote and improve vocational education in different European countries. The YOUVET training was the beginning for the raising and tackling issues and problems related on vocational education at national level for improving VET in all around of Europe. The training is over, but the participants are in their home countries with the Action Plans, wider knowledge and many new tools learned during the training. In their own countries participants still continue to improve and raise awareness of vocational education and also use their skills to teach others. They will continue tackling the problems and issues of the different VET systems across Europe and together improve the European perspective towards Vocational Education and Training. Below you can find session templates of session both of the Online Training and of the Face2Face training so that you can take some clues from them.

PART 1 BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING IN EUROPE

9


VET IN EUROPE Vocational Education and Training, as other educational paths, is a very complicated and fragmented system. There is no such a thing like a European VET system; the systems differ from country to country and sometimes also inside countries (e.g. Italy). In 2012 OBESSU run a survey which was completed by representative from 16 out of 21 of the countries that OBESSU’s members reside in. This survey shows some immediate problems with VET, problems that go across differences in systems and countries. First of all is the perception of VET as a “low level” education. In 12 countries this seems to be one of the biggest problems. This corresponds to a Euro barometer published by the European Commission back in October 2012, which showed that only 27 % of young people would recommend a VET education to their peers. This is a big problem, because VET is not a second rate education, and it should not be perceived as such. This is the message of OBESSU, and was also agreed by the participants of OBESSU’s 7th European School Student Convention in Oslo. But why is it then still that young people in Europe sees Vocational Education and Training as less than a general academic secondary education? Another big problem spotted in the OBESSU Survey was that when choosing an education, young people does not have enough information to make an informed choice. It shows that 75 % finds that the lack of information concerning possible choices in their education to be the biggest problem. This problem is linked to the first, and if students are not familiar with all the educational choices available, they are bound to rely on advice from peers, parents and just choose what they know. This data, shown also in the infographic below, is a clear sign of a need for change in VET all over Europe and a clear alarm for all EU and national institutions: VET is neither a second chance education nor only a trampoline to the Labour Market. Member states need to invest in it and need to discuss together strategies to harmonise systems and build a common ground where VET students are free to move without having problem with qualification recognition and finding quality VET everywhere. Infographic: What is VET really like?

IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS ON VET IN EUROPE This paragraph is possible thanks to great work that participants of the YOUVET training did during their online learning period. In fact, here is a short introduction to two of the most important ongoing or finished processes regarding VET at the European level. Copenhagen Process & Bruges Communiqué This has involved 33 European countries in development of Vocational Education and Training since 2002, when the Copenhagen Declaration was published. European actions and initiatives in VET are carried out as parts of the Copenhagen process. Every two years the national Ministers of Education get together to review the process and plan future actions. In December 2010 in Bruges there was a Ministers’ meeting where the priorities and goals of the Copenhagen process for the years 2011-2020 were set. The Bruges Communiqué is a Communication issued by the European Commission on enhanced European cooperation on Vocational Education and Training, with a package of objectives and actions to increase the quality of vocational training in Europe by making it more accessible and relevant to the needs of the labour market. Ministers, together with representatives of employers and unions and the European Commission, confirmed shared objectives for vocational education and training for the next decade and an action plan for the 2010-2014 time. Those objectives are called “Short Term Deliverables”. In Semptember 2014 CEDEFOP, the Centre for Development of Vocational Training organised a stock-tacking conference in Thessaloniki based on this STDs which you can read more about here. There are also other communications (Helsinki, Maastricht and Bordeaux), but they have already expired. External sources: The general infomation: http://ec.europa.eu/education/vocational-education/copenhagen_en.htm The Copenhagen Declaration: http://ec.europa.eu/education/pdf/doc125_en.pdf The Bruges Communiqué: http://ec.europa.eu/education/vocational-education/doc/bruges_en.pdf

PART 2 THE ROLE OF MEMBER ORGANISATIONS OF OBESSU Member Organisations were the real actors of the Claim Your Voice campaign as well as of the day-to-day work of OBESSU. In this part of the toolbox we are going to explore different aspects of the work of Members on the topic of OBESSU, we'll start from the results of the internal survey we conducted and we'll them move to examples of actions. Who knows, you might find interesting ideas in this part!

12


Survey results on certain areas of work with VET on a national level In June 2013 at the Working Group meeting we had in Amsterdam, we decided to conduct a survey amongst OBESSU Member Organisations to Get updates on the situation of VET in each country. The survey was made out of 5 questions and 15 out of 20 Organisations dealing with VET answered to it. Questions were: 1. What is going on in VET in your country? 2. How is your Organisation involved in solving VET issues? 3. Does your Organisation have someone specifically responsible for VET? 4. Have you taken some actions on the topic of VET? 5. Is VET included in any of your internal documents? Are there specific ones? Here are some answers. What is going on? The situation country by country is very different. In Lithuania “The Ministry of Education is trying to adopt a new law on Vocational Education and Training” whilst in Spain “the number of VET students increased”, in Finland “The government is cutting 250 mln to secondary education” and in Ireland “There is no proper VET schools”, to name a few examples.

Most of our Member Organisations are dealing with solving VET issues in some way. For example, FSS is currently working with SAKKI in Finland with their mutual project "Normit nuriin" (Get rid of the standards). ŠUS in Slovakia is working on a VET campaign, where they have formed a group of 4 people (working group) and the campaign is currently taking shape. UDS in Italy works through lobbying to the Minister of Education and at the moment they are pushing to achieve the Charter of Rights for Students in apprenticeships, traineeship and internship and to revise the VET system.

13


A great amount of Organisations took some actions in the field of VET, and those who yet did not are taking advantage of the “Action planning� part of the face to face training of YOUVET, mentioned earlier, during which all participants had to write their own action plans for when they got home. Most of the action plans were then respected and used to develop and implement actions on the national level. Examples will follow later on.

14


Some examples of actions...

AKS – Austria

“We always try to help VET school student councils to work out projects which fit their school type and to inform them about their rights, as I already wrote. We do also have VET activists, but less than from the gymnasiums, because they do not have that much free time. To include them we try to organise workshop days and special meetings for them to give them the opportunity to also be involved in the organisation.”

UdS, Italy

“In Italy the mechanism of “stages” (internships) is very poorly regulated, so we work on a campaign, called You are not a robot, during which we wish to push for the approval of charter of rights for students under work-based learning.”

SAKKI – Finland

“On 14th of May 2012, SAKKI, together with Ammattilainen – PRO, a project for well-being of VET Students, gathered over one hundred VET students to march for their appreciation and to raise awareness of the inequality between VET students and the students in academic secondary education. Every year for example the biggest newspapers in Finland publish the names of those graduating from academic secondary education, but forget that at the same time every year, thousands of young people graduate from Vocational Education and Training too. This is one of the points SAKKI and Ammattilainen want to draw attention to.”

15


PART 3 SOME CONCRETE TOOLS In this part of the toolbox you are going to find the agenda of the Face-to-face training which was part of the YOUVET project, as well as what is called a Session Template, a tool to plan and put in place workshops, seminars, roundtables etc.

16


Agenda for YOUVET training As you can see the training was focusing a lot on action simulating and planning in order to give tools to participants to use when getting back home. However there were also some interesting and hot debates on the future of VET and on the relation between unemployment and VET with external speakers, among whom we can mention representatives from BusinessEurope and the European Youth Forum. Willing to get to know some methods and have a deeper insight on session to get some ideas? Keep on reading next paragraph!

What is a session template? A session template is a table, a document, whatever tool you feel comfortable using, which highlights objectives, expected outcomes, methods and timings, space and material needs and role of the people involved in shaping the session. Here you have…  an empty session template to get familiar with the tool  summed-up session templates for the Online Training of YOUVET stating in brief a description, aims, methods and outcomes  filled-in session templates of the face-to-face meeting held in Brussels Are you up for the challenge?

Online workshop on Campaigning in practice Description: In this workshop we talked about campaign and campaigns. We talked about how to do a good campaign, political and public one. We discussed also why not so big and not so “good” campaigns can also be really good and effective. Then we talked about different ways to campaign (events and actions) and what can be the outcomes from campaigns and how you can use them after the campaign. Aims: Campaigning is really important. It is good way to get students claim their voices and take a stand for something which matters to them. Every student organisation does campaigns, so in this session they learned how to do it effectively way and what different kind of campaigns you can create. Methods:  Internal speaker/s  Campaigning documents, videos and books  Crating own campaigns and them evaluation  Watching best practices  Brainstorming Outcomes: People who took a part learned about campaigning creating and got basic knowledge about campaigning. They also learned why to do campaigns, what they can achieve by doing them and all the different forms and ways to do campaigns. Our one biggest goal was teach them who to use outcomes of campaigns and what to do when campaign itself ends and why. The workshop also prepared them to do action/campaigning plans together with other organisations.

Online workshop on Lobbying Description: There are many good ways to achieve one’s goals. In this workshop we talked one of these ways, lobbying. Lobbying is really important way to achieve one’s goals. We talked what is good lobbying. We also went a little bit back and talk about stakeholders, because they are really important part of lobbying. If you want to do effective lobbying you have to know who you should do it and how can you contact to those people. Then we talked about different ways to lobby and expanded our views to the European level. Aims: Lobbying is really important way achieve goals and take a stand. Every student activist has to know how to do lobbying, because this is sometimes the best way to contact stakeholders and get one’s own point of view noted. Methods:  Using practical examples  Videos, books and documents  Brainstormed  Problem solving tasks where used created lobbying situation

19


Outcomes: People who took a part got basic knowledge of lobbying. That contained why, who and when you should do it. We used many examples by thinking and analysing those. People who took part thought that they got really good and proud overall view about lobbying.

Online workshop on Funding & Fundraising Description: Everyone and everything should start from something and that something is usually money. In this session we talked more about fundraising for non-profit campaigns. Moreover we used examples of the best fundraising examples. Aims: Everyone and everything should start from something. You cannot organise a campaign if you cannot afford for example basic material. To have basic needs covered you have to fundraise money for campaign. Everyone should think of one possible fundraising idea and then start to think how to reach that. Methods:  Brainstorming  Introduction of examples and then talking about those  Evaluating best practices  Creating own fundraising ideas and how to get funds Learning Objectives:  Where to find money for Claim your Voice  Who can be partners (governmental/non-governmental sectors)  What can you offer for the money (or support) which will be given?  PROS and CONS of different funding

Online workshop on VET Policies, Stakeholder, Documents Description: During the session participants went through the most relevant VET Policies, Stakeholder, Documents, etc. Aims: It is very important that participants have basic knowledge about VET documents, policies and stakeholders, because then they know how it works at European level and also have sufficient competence to work with VET in local level. Methods:  Materials reading and making notes  Group conversation, talk about documents  Meeting with expert(s) Outcomes: People got basic knowledge about VET documents and stakeholders, they knew where they can found more information.

20


Online workshop on Investments on VET education Description: There is no VET education without money, so it is very important to know how VET is financed and invested. In this session participants got an overview of investment in VET and think about what is missing. Methods:  Materials reading and making notes  Group conversation  Meeting with expert(s) Outcomes: People got basic knowledge about investments on VET

Online workshop on VET students participation, involvement, representation Description The aim of this workshop was to collect ideas and thoughts about one of our top issues, VET students’ involvement and participation. Using new and experimental interactive methods we will discuss together about participation, involvement in both in decision making process and in active school life and the meaning of student representation. We together brainstormed on how to raise both the quantity and the quality of participation both in schools and in the student organisations. This workshop was run to formalise the everyday work which the MOs of OBESSU do at their national and local level. It assumed also greater importance in VET field since it is recognised that student participation is not always as much as we could expect. This workshop was run to give motivation to student activists to proceed and boost their work in their organisations. Aims 

Why participation is so important at school level, Avoid the common misunderstanding of student representation. What are the best practices to involve students?

especially

VET

level?

 Methods  Each participant was asked to record a video explaining the main problems he-she identified in VET student participation  Participants then prioritised the most relevant problems, for each one of these they described examples, they brainstormed some solutions that can be adopted at the local, national and international level  Participants could then access a section called ‘OBESSU Bazaar’ where they could see what OBESSU has done up to then. Outcomes Participants got more knowledge about the main problems in other countries/organisations and by expressing their own they felt more involved.

21


Online workshop on Quality of VET examples Description In this workshop we examined the case of the “Dual model of VET”, as the system is called in for example Germany and Austria, considered by many to be a quality example. We tried to define the most relevant aspects which make a VET system of high quality. The dual system is considered in the European VET debate the most efficient. Participants need to understand what are the aspects that make the German considered the best ones . So they need to share and then compare some aspects of their VET education system. Aims  Aspects to be evaluated in a VET system;  Main differences between the VET systems in Europe;  List quality examples in VET;  Basics of German model/Dual system;  PROs-CONs of this model;  Debunk the myths of this model;  Give a critical opinion of it. Methods  Reading of articles and opinions  Commenting and answering guided questions

Shown below you can find the filled-in tables of the session templates for some sessions of the face-to-face training.
