C2- Blended mobility for Vet learners (trainers) (final)
DIGICULT will carry out 2 LTTA:
C1 Blended mobility for VET learners
C2 Blended mobility for Vet learners (trainers)
LTTA will be an extraordinary opportunity to create multidisciplinary transnational team groups working on the topic and further exploiting and testing the opportunity to foster national legislation about this topic.
LTTA will be an occasion in which the project partners and participants from different countries will learn together, sharing experiences and difficulties in the specific sector with the aim of identifying common strategies and future partnerships and collaborations.
The added value of this activity will lay as follows:
- to have the possibility of testing on participants the training material. This test will allow, to further supplement and implement outputs;
- to offer the possibility to exchange ideas, to discover cultural heritage sites;
- to understand the potential for using gamification to empower skills;
- last but not least, in the opportunity to measure the efficacy and efficiency of the project’s outputs and also if the website are working and being used by the target group.
LTTA will involve 27 participants. The selection will be done by the sending partner institutions with common selection criterion, which will take into account the need to involve both different staff representatives than VET learners.
Selection will start 2 months prior to each activity in order to guarantee participants involvement considering targets needs and peculiarities.
The selected participants:
- have no obstacle to travel;
- will speak and understand English;
- communicate what they have learned to others upon return;
- agree to engage in the full learning experience and provide feedback;
- sign the learning activity agreement.
Preparation and support – The hosting organization is committed to giving all the possible info to the partners and will deliver in advance:
- the event agenda;
- all the teaching material that will be used in the event;
- a brief description of speakers and their CVs;
- a selection of open access material relevant and/or materials to the learning activity to improve the pre-preparation level;
- information about places to sleep, eat, the transport network and other information that can facilitate the integration and guarantee their well-being.
The hotel, subsistence, flight tickets, and other travel tickets will be booked and paid by the partners and participants will adhere to the rules as laid down for the activity. The safety of participants will be guaranteed by choosing appropriate locations with all environmental standards for learning and teaching, respecting also all existing anti-COVID health and safety regulations. The protection of minors will be guaranteed in accordance with the law in force in the host country.
As there are 6 EU countries involved in the partnership, there will take place an intercultural preparation to better prepare and integrate all participants. This will be done with presentations that highlights the main cultural traits of which country, its organization and customs.
All materials/documents/tools will be used consciously with respect for the environment. All activities will be zero impact and will help to achieve the SDGS -Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations 2030 Agenda (Goals 4-5-8-12-17), including green travel.
The experiences will be embedded in public material (interviews, clip, videos, papers,..) released to external on the website.
The validation and formal recognition, in accordance with EU standards, is conducted by all partners. Prior to the mobility period partners discuss and agree the way(s) in which learning outcomes will be assessed during the pilot course (with open access). They also agree on how the quality of this process is ensured. ECVET can be applied, beyond geographical mobility, in the perspective of lifelong learning, helping learners to take their skills along across different learning settings, form non-formal experiences to institutional programs. Main methodological approaches to be applied are European principles and tools for transparency ECVET and Europass, in strictly integration with VET rules and procedures of each involved country; to support the common and transversal competences acquisition in the informal, non-formal, and formal learning contexts taking into account concerned territorial qualification frameworks too.
At the end of each the training activity, an Open Badge is also issued for all participants: a digital certificate to represent and share the skills acquired through an activity or training experience. The badge is issued by CIOFS through a digital platform, C-Box, which allows collecting, in a personal area, objectives, and contents of the training activity, teaching materials, and learning outputs. Participants can decide whether to share their Badge with other people using the platform community and/or other social media that they habitually use (Linkedin, ePortfolio, etc…).
