A Vetwork projekt logója

The aim of the VETWork project (Digital Culture for the 21st Century Vocational Education - 2020-1-HU01-KA202-078760) is to develop a new training and intervention model, which is closely linked to the following sector-specific priorities in the field of vocational education and training:

•    Introducing systematic approaches to, and opportunities for, the initial and continuous professional development of VET teachers, trainers and mentors in both school and work-based settings (including apprenticeships), as well as through the development of effective digital, open and innovative education and pedagogies, as well as practical tools; raising the attractiveness of the professions for VET teachers, trainers, mentors and leaders.

•    Supporting the uptake of innovative approaches and digital technologies for teaching and learning, as outlined in the Digital Education Action Plan and in the Digital Competence Framework – DigComp 2.1, including the effective use of the SELFIE self-reflection tool to support a comprehensive approach to innovation, and the use of digital technologies for pedagogical, administrative, technical and organisational change.

The project aims to embed the traditional digital pedagogy teacher training program in a broader context by organizing customized school-based contact training sessions, linking it to organizational development components that enhance institutional digital competence and quality culture.

Target group: VET teachers, trainers, managers

Beneficiaries: VET students

Planned outcomes: 

1. Toolkit for developing Digital Pedagogy Strategy in VET schools

4. Case studies based on ICT-based creative classroom work
5. Digital Pedagogy Training and Intervention Model – an e-book compiling the experiences, the developed tools and the tested process for use by other educational institutions
