Rationale & Objectives
The competencies of personnel involved in planning and conducting work-based learning directly influence the quality of vocational training. Development of the training programme and VET course for mentors in eco-industry supports the continuing professional development of educators – mentors – and in this way development of competences of key personnel involved in work-based learning in enterprises.
Proposing the solutions focusing on recognition, validation and certification of competences of mentors, including validation of non-formal and informal learning, contribute to increasing quality of continuing VET and then to improvement of the quality of work-based learning in European countries.
The choice of the eco-industry, as a pilot area for implementation of the project’s outcomes is intentional and justified by its strategic importance for sustainable development of the European economy and on the other hand by an experience and expertise of all partner institutions.
