Background

The partnership has been working on a series of projects exploring the methods and needs we have to be able to comprehend and work with when discussing training in the workplace. ‎‎See a discussion of the projects.

Please have a look at the background to our project.

Goals and Objectives

The main objective of the project is very clear. To develop a manual for the work needed to be able to send student to a workplace. It is important to tie loose ends, to clear all formalities, to build a contract between the student, the workplace and the provider / college. It is our hope we can identify common needs for different circumstances and different sectors and build a common system.
In all the work on the Workplacement Manual we have been looking at the blocks of the EQAVET - European Quality Assurance Reference Framework for Vocational Education and Training, described here.

Partners

The partnership consists of four vocational colleges / schools and two consultants. The image gives an indication of the partners.
