This week we are having the final meeting of the Inclusive VET project, coordinated by ROC Leijgraaf, in Budapest.
After almost 3 years, the partners from Turkey, Finland, Netherlands, Germany and the Basque Country have been able to design, develop and pilot 2 results aimed to facilitate the implementation of inclusion in vocational education.
The first tool is a Guide, addressed specially to managers in VET schools but not exclusively, offering a step by step process of those aspects to bear in mind to build inclusion in an educational organization. The Guide is not intended to offer a “suit them all” solution, but to provide a starting point for those who would like to incorporate inclusion in their strategy.
The second tool is a “train the trainer” manual, named “All on Board”, aimed to develop the necessary knowledge and skills among the staff in an organization so the implementation of inclusion will be possible. The manual complements the guide and comes together with an example for a 5 days training programme, including theoretical background and resources to deliver the training.
In the pilot session celebrated in the Basque Country, HETEL counted with the participation of VET teachers from Centro Formativo Otxarkoaga, Zulaibar Arratiako Lanbide Ikastegia, Centro San Viator de Sopuerta, Egibide, Goierri, Escela de Química y Electrónica de Indautxu and Göteborg Technical College.
The final versions of both results will be available in the following weeks in the project Website:
The Basque teachers who attended the pilot session in the Basque Country are also attending the last meeting of the project in Budapest. Because cooperation and co-creation are Abantean values!
