TRAINVET4JOBS: Supporting the role of VET professionals to improve the trainees employability
All too often, companies and organisations need employees that possess skills beyond the scope of their occupation-specific expertise, in particular skills such as:
- Organisational skills
- Decision – making skills
- Time management skills
- Leadership skills
- “learning to learn”
- Social and communication competences
In other words: transversal competences that allow persons to effectively interact within various work-place settings, as well as deal with diverse social and cultural aspects in today’s ever more changing European labour-market.
Lifelong learning, Vocational Educational Training (VET), trainers and the VET training systems across the EU have an increasingly important role in providing and teaching these skills and competences. The EU co-funded project ‘TRAINVET4JOBS – Supporting the role of VET professionals to improve the trainees employability’, implemented within the frame of the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Commission, aims at strengthening the capacity of VET trainers and professionals, so they better identify, teach and validate the much needed transversal competences, which will lead and substantially enhance the employability of their trainees.
