ACTIVE-ATS project is focusing on the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in Egypt. There has been a significant amount of development in TVET in Egypt already at the system level, and at the same time, there is an urgent need to develop the teachers’ knowledge and understanding of student-centered and also competence-based lifelong learning.
TVET is in the national context important forum for the economy, the key actor for the development of the company’s learning possibilities and practices, and also for the employment and professional growth of young people in Egypt. The continuous and rapid changes in the world of work are typical features in all ACTIVE-ATS project partner countries: Egypt, Finland and Germany.
The project is strengthening Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) teachers’ and trainers’ capacity to work in competence based TVET in Egypt.
The development work is implemented in a cooperation with the world of work and with the private sector partners of the Applied Technology Schools (ATS).
In the project five schools out of 27 ATS in Egypt are associate partners. From these schools 50 teachers and trainers will participate in the pedagogical enhancement programme during the project and they will have also the on-the job -learning period in the private sector company.
