Belfast Met Awarded Erasmus+ ProjectBelfast Met are proud to announce that we have been awarded an Erasmus+ Key Action 2 Co-operation for Innovation and the Exchange of Good Practices Strategic Partnership for Vocational Education funding of over a quarter million euros.
Belfast Met are leading on the 2 year project, working with a further 5 partners, including H2 Learning Limited in Dublin, City of Dublin Education and Training Board (CDETB) , Koning Wilem 1 College in Netherlands, Tartu Kutsehariduskeskus in Estonia and IEFPS Usurbil GLHBI in Spain.
The project will develop and pilot a new blended-learning model that will allow VET organisations to offer courses that better meet the needs and demands of their learners and employers. It will also design and implement a series of blended-learning VET approaches aimed at modernising learning, teaching and assessment practices across 5 partner countries.
The Target group of the project are:
• VET Providers/Senior management
• VET Principals/Managers
• VET Teachers
• VET Learners
• Awarding Bodies (state and private)
This project will explore how blended learning can increase the effectiveness of education. There will be a focus on supporting leaders across the various partner organisations, to implement such change and to monitor its impact on the organisation, on learners and on external stakeholders. The project will also involve awarding bodies and industry to ensure that students are better prepared for the world of work on completion of the courses.
