Joint Staff Training Event In Utrecht


From Sunday, the 7th of October until Saturday, the 13th of October 2018 Utrecht will become our project's headquarters. 15 people from all five participating countries will be attending our work intensive Joint Staff Training Event during these seven days. Now is finish: Gallery here

Hopefully, our diverse team will provide innovative fresh approaches as our goals are very ambitious for this short period. The subjects we will try to breach will be:

  • Creative Problem Solving exercises
  • Entrepreneurship Education
  • Work-based learning
  • Web 2.0 tools for VET
  • Open Educational resources
  • Gamification of learning
  • Simulations
  • Digital storytelling
  • ECVET
  • Integration of the methodologies and exploration of tools to be used
  • World Café meeting involving stakeholders to discuss the project’s main topics
  • Onsite visits to social enterprises and Public Administrations
  • Teaching sessions where at least 1 participant per partner is going to be the “teacher” transmitting own knowledge

During our time in Utrecht, we will also try to assess the contents of our guides and finalize their contents. The knowledge acquired in the first Multiplier Events will be digested and we will try to replicate the success in each partner country.

Participants have the opportunity to be deemed “European Innovator in VET” and thanks to the ECVET system and Memorandum of Understandings they will be ready to transmit the knowledge at their local level.
