Defining vocational education and training (VET) strategies for the future often happens in turbulent times. The COVID-19 pandemic created a new economic crisis and increased social inequalities. In particular, the pandemic had a damaging effect on VET students, learners, teachers and trainers, companies and apprentices, and workers. The pandemic is not over, yet already millions of workers lost their jobs and will need to be reskilled and upskilled for digital transition in the labour market.
STEP 3 project is an answer to the challenges related to the rapid transition to new forms of e-training in the VET environment.
The 30 new training modules developed during the project, are going to support the digital upskilling of VET trainers/teachers and tutors. The digital upskilling is going to be made within the DigiComp Framework (DigiComp2), covering all 5 areas of the Framework, namely:
- Information and Data Literacy (VET Teachers/trainers) – 5 modules
- Communication and collaboration (all target groups) – 8 modules
- Creation of Digital Content (all target groups) – 7 modules
- Safety (VET Teachers/trainers and Tutors) – 5 modules
- Problem-solving in digital environments (all target groups) – 5 modules
