NEW VET “Network fostering the European Work-based learning system for VET providers” general aim is to support the establishment of a European cooperation scheme for a pilot group of VET Providers coming from Italy, France, Germany, Slovenia and Greece and seeking at a more efficient development and effective implementation of Work Based Learning systems at their national levels. Thus, project’s aim is to encourage the creation of transnational and national VET providers’ networks and partnerships to build cross-border cooperation for VET quality and attractiveness.
Due to the variety of systems, socioeconomic contexts and starting points in the education and training sector, Member States are at different levels of development in VET. However, Italy, France, Germany, Slovenia and Greece share the same need to support the empowerment of their VET providers’ actors in drawing and implementing high quality Work Based Learning schemes.
NEW VET establishes an EU cooperation scheme for VET providers and a multi-stakeholder partnership, comprising of 6 partners in 5 EU Member-States, and develops all its outputs in 5 EU languages, thus guaranteeing wide impact throughout the EU and beyond.
NEW VET is co-funded by the European Union Erasmus+ ΚΑ3 Support for Policy Reform programme.
Through the multilevel pilot activities, VET providers will gain, not only the ability to lead cooperation projects at national levels but also to further involve VET providers having never contributed or benefit from the European cooperation. Furthermore, VET teachers and trainers will be empowered in the effective use of the EU funded tools in their national languages and they will become effective drivers of VET quality and efficiency enhancing the impact and the relevance of VET national systems to which they belong.
Furthermore, and to foster the communication, dissemination and support for the VET Policy Agenda NEW VET will implement target activities to spread the attractiveness of the VET system both at EU and at each partner’s national level. This will be achieved by mainstreaming direct experiences of the VET policy implementation through several communication channels and bottom up storytelling initiatives and inspirations stories shared by the very same beneficiaries of the VET system (i.e. learners and teachers and in-company trainers). Project activities will make viral the message “You can follow your talent, VET is a first choice!” and partners will contribute in making national VET systems more popular and attractive by launching contests, awarding high-profile prizes and organizing innovative events
