Ce projet est piloté directement par la SEPR.

Il vise notamment à renforcer la dimension européenne dans les centres de formation professionnelle, aujourd'hui fortement touchés par les retombées de la pandémie de COVID-19. Pour cela, les partenaires du projet devront innover dans l'internationalisation des apprentissages et digitaliser certaines des activités liées à la mobilité physique de leurs apprenants. Ils s’engagent par ailleurs à mettre en œuvre des expériences de mobilité sur mesure, plus sûres et de meilleure qualité, en renforçant la coopération entre les centres de formation et les familles. Enfin, le projet vise à donner les compétences nécessaires aux enseignants pour qu’ils puissent développer davantage d’activités d'internationalisation à domicile et faire face à la mobilité virtuelle et mixte de leurs apprenants.

Outre la SEPR, le projet rassemble 7 acteurs de la formation et de la mobilité : Uniser (Italie), la MFR du Bergeracois (France), Scuola Centrale Formazione (Italie), EU-Geschäftsstelle Bezirksregierung Köln (Allemagne), Luksia (Finlande), Institut Esteve Terradas i Illa (Espagne).

Pendant 24 mois, les partenaires du projet travailleront sur le développement des productions intellectuelles prévues, notamment lors de réunions et d’événements transnationaux. Les résultats seront ensuite testés sur les établissements participants et sur au moins 12 de leurs apprenants qui réaliseront une mobilité mixte pilote.

La première réunion transnationale a eu lieu en juin 2021, en ligne en raison de la situation sanitaire encore incertaine. La richesse des échanges est cependant au rendez-vous, et le travail a pu commencer dans de bonnes conditions, en attendant la prochaine réunion du projet en novembre 2021, à Barcelone.

Le site du projet est en construction, un lien sera bientôt disponible.

Dates and Duration

June 2021 – May 2023 (24 Months)

Context

Nowadays the job market presents several challenges due to the changing demand of a more globalised and intercultural world and the rising mobility of the workforce.  Internationalisation of training systems has been regarded as the crucial response to provide young people with key competences, focused on citizenship and interculturality. The European Commission has urged Member States to act in modernising and improving their education and training systems increasing the percentage of students participating in learning mobility. The financial constraint of EU programmes and schools budget unfortunately allow only a handful of students to participate in a mobility experience every year. There is a need to find new ways of bringing Europe to local students by introducing more Internationalisation at Home.

Furthermore, since March 2020, the internationalisation process that VET centers were experimenting in the last decade was strongly affected by the COVID 19 pandemic. VET students' physical mobility is strongly weakened due to the lack of common policy and the widespread restrictions to transnational travels all across the European Union (OECD,2020). VET providers are in need of new competences and tools to implement virtual mobility, blended mobility and fostering Internationalisation at Home processes.

Objectives

Given this context, the general objective of the project is to strengthen the European dimension of VET centers nowadays strongly affected by the circumstances created by the COVID 19 pandemic by innovating their internationalisation strategies thanks to the use of digital tools and to the development of teachers’ digital competences.
The specific objectives are:

  • To innovate the internationalization of learning and to make digital some of the activities linked to VET students’ physical mobility and to its preparation, monitoring and follow up
  • To build capacity to implement tailor made, safer and higher quality international students' mobility experiences enhancing cooperation between VET schools and families
  • To increase teachers’ competences to develop Internationalization at Home activities and to deal with virtual and blended mobility

Activities

The project foresees the development of three intellectual outputs related to the specific objectives of the project.

  • IO1: Online Toolkit for teachers aimed to support them in organizing learners’ mobility with a strong digital component, by virtualizing part of the experience. It will be composed of infographics, video tutorials, examples and practices adaptable to each VET center.
  • IO2: E - platform for a tailor made mobility in hosting families will allow local families to register and signal their availability for hosting learners. It includes the development of video guidelines/tutorials addressed to families for their collaboration with VET schools in setting up transnational mobility activities.
  • IO3: E-learning course for teachers on the Internationalisation at Home will be composed of training modules on how to set up learning activities for local learners and teachers with a transnational component, some examples are: use of e-twinning and further online tools, host European students and organise classes/activities for them while they are at school, hosting training courses for European teachers etc. A special focus will be keeped on building capacities to implement blended mobility.

The outputs will be tested on 12 learners participating in pilot blended mobility plus others involved through KA1 projects. The project will directly address VET teachers, headmasters, parents, learners, educators, mobility providers’ staff, and will indirectly involve local and regional authorities dealing with VET.

Impact

In terms of long term impact, all the activities aim to increase the number of hosted students and mobilities, creating a sustainable and durable community of hosting families and schools that are fully equipped and prepared to ensure enriched mobility experiences.

Nevertheless, raising awareness of how to integrate school’s programmes with transnational activities and provide the dedicated tools will allow improved key competences and professional competences developed by both European teachers and students.
