Teachers training

Three training events were organised in the framework of The VET Learner Journey project, gathering teachers and practitioners of learning mobility and ICT from Italy, Spain, Poland, France and Netherlands.

Each event focused on different steps of learning mobility and had the threefold purposes of increasing mutual understanding and cooperation amongst VET institutes and experts in learning mobility that comes from different countries, exchanging their experience on mobility and developing new pedagogical tools for enhancing the development of students’ key competences before, during and after the learning mobility.

The structure and content of the training event was designed for both offline and online activities.

Lyon (France) 11-14 March 2019

This first Training Event focused on the preparation of mobility, before departure and 27 people from 9 different organizations took part in it. 

A lot of debate occurred in order to share good practices amongst partners. The subjects tackled were the selection processes, preparation methods for students and their families and the games used to facilitate these practices.

Many information came out of these discussions and were put at good use by creating missions as part of a game to prepare the students and families before the departure in mobility.

The missions were tested with SEPR Students and, thanks to their feedback, we finalised 16 missions. They are now available in this website in the section Before.

Here you also find the programme and some of the good practices shared during the event.

Good practices exchange was alternated with working groups aimed to design games/missions for increasing the students’ key competences during they stay abroad.
