Summary

TTT4WBL proposal supports ET2020 policy objectives reinforced in Riga Conclusions (2015): "promote work-based learning in all its forms” and "introduce systemic approaches and opportunities for professional development of VET teachers, trainers and mentors in school and work-based settings". It is linked to the guiding principles formulated by ET2020 Working group on VET: - Attractiveness of apprenticeships by raising the quality of VET teachers; - Support the continuous professional development of in-company trainers, - Systematic cooperation between VET schools and companies; - Support for SMEs.The aims of this proposal are - to promote professional development of WBL tutors through EU and regional cooperation and mutual learning; - to promote stronger cooperation between VET and social partners and SMEs; - to collect and analyze evidence for implementation of innovative measures and facilitate their transferability. The objective of the project is to test a professional development model for WBL tutors: Joint training of tutors from VET and tutors from enterprises in 3 Baltic countries - Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania.The main target group is WBL tutors - tutors from VET schools and tutors from enterprises jointly involved in guiding apprentices. The aim of experimentation is to show the impact of joint training of VET and workplace tutors. We proceed from the assumption that joint training approach can:- improve skills, competences for supervising WBL;- ensure pedagogical skills of workplace and VET tutors to guide apprentices;- ensure pedagogical skills of VET teachers to guide workplace tutors;- improve cooperation and communication between VET and enterprises, support involvement of SMEs.The project results will include the Research results reflected in the Experimentation report; a Methodological material for Joint Training Approach, trained 800 WBL tutors in 3 countries, new level of Baltic policy dialogue with regard to training trainers for WBL.
