The project explores the VET reform effects on welfare and social service support and maps staff in-service training needs with a focus on educational transitions from basic education to VET and from VET to the labour market. The project also promotes VET actors’ networking and maps and models and further develops good pedagogical and preventive practices through piloting. International cooperation promotes the accomplishment of national objectives and stimulates the identification of best practices in diverse pedagogical and cultural contexts in connection with national needs and at the EU level.
The project outcomes will include the following:
1) a report on the state of preventive welfare and social service support in VET and on national and European best practices of supporting well-being and early interventions during VET transitions based on piloted models
2) the mapping of VET actors’ in-service training needs
3) new means to increase the graduation rates and promote preventive welfare, social service support and early interventions
4) develop novel experience-based models to support young people’s mastery of their lives and ability to transition from basic education to VET and from VET to the labour market
5) online resources targeted to VET students, staff and on-the-job-mentors.
