ETTE – EUROPEAN TRAINERS’ TRAINING FOR EXCELLENCE

ETTE (European Trainers’ Training for Excellence) is an Erasmus+ project aimed at enhancing structural synergies and cooperation among VET centres of excellence with a view to fostering the local dimension of quality along with the continuous professional development of teachers and trainers. ETTE project pursues the exchange of good practices among European VET providers which are recognised as Centres of Excellence (VCEs).

The project aims to do so by consolidating and enlarging the VCEs network with new organisations to consolidate and spread its model along with the VET quality and excellence principles all over Europe.

METHODOLOGY & JOINT STAFF TRAINING EVENTS

ETTE combines the trainers’ training with transnational mobility with a view to promoting a systematic approach to quality improvement. Its implementation will bring together VET trainers, experts and practitioners representing different local versions of excellence in order to provide them with the opportunity to share best practices and learn from each other while testing training circuits. Within the project’s context, four joint staff training circuits are implemented with the aim of testing the quality and effectiveness of VET excellence centres across Europe, promoting the exchange of good practices, fostering transnational networking and creating a breeding ground for improvement and further development on the way for a European label for excellence.
