KA2 – Cooperation for Innovation and the Exchange of Good Practices
Strategic Partnerships VET
The project "European Network for Focus on Upskilling Pathways" has been implemented under the ERASMUS+ program between 2019-22 by 5 organizations forming strategic partnership.
The project was a response to the current situation of vocational training in Europe, which requires defining paths for raising qualifications. Therefore, the project aims to build common knowledge on the main challenges related to the design and implementation of skill development paths and to bring together stakeholders to effectively support them in implementing adult dissemination pathways.
During the project partners worked on development 2 main results:
National Report is one of the project results and includes a comparison of adult
upskilling pathways in partner countries. Report aims at identification of an
existing situation in each of the four partner countries. Understanding different
visions within individual partner countries was the first and important step of the project work.
The Bulletin Focus on Upskilling Pathways - is the second result of the work of five
partner organisations. The bulletin is a response to one of the project goals
which is - Increasing the competences of career counselors and trainers
in motivating and encouraging adults to improve their competences.
The compiled Bulletin consists of three main topics:
1. Combining basic skills training with education and VET vocational training. Creating and developing cooperation networks.
