What is Our Project About?
Teachers are working in a fast-changing environment, that most precisely can be described by a quote that has been widely shared on social media; it says teachers “are currently preparing students for jobs and technologies that don’t yet exist, in order to solve problems that we don’t even know are problems yet”. To face the unknown, it’s identified that certain soft skills are needed to be developed through the education process. But what is needed from teachers? How they can support the development of the skills, which they learn about from methodical materials?
“21st century soft skills for teachers in VET” Project aims to train and educate teachers in vocational education and training institutions, prepare them so that they are ready for working with most essential 21st century soft skills during their classes with their students.
Partners will develop a training course for VET teachers based on research done with teachers, students and employers on key skills to be acquired.
Project activities will include professional development of VET educators so they are able to support effective 21st century soft skill learning.
