Euro i-VET- Enhancing the quality of I-VET provision for young people in urban, multicultural settings
Start date: Oct 1, 2015, End date: Aug 31, 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This project builds on two previous Leonardo TOI projects; the Big Bang which examined the impact of culture clash between Young People from disadvantaged backgrounds and opportunities in the world of work and education and Euro-ARCO which identified that Young People from BME and migrant communities in partner countries were far more likely to be long term NEET. Big Bang identified the close links between this marginalization and social and civic unrest among these communities. Preventative approaches that link with these young people’s lifestyles and cultural values while delivering high quality VET provision is vital to ensuring that they are able to engage effectively in the workforce and take advantage of the wide range of Work Based Learning opportunities available including apprenticeships and traineeships. EU2020 highlights the importance of Europe delivering inclusive growth that –“fosters a high employment economy that delivers economic, social and territorial cohesion and provides better integration of migrants into the workforce particularly those aged between 20-64. This is important to promote equity, social cohesion and active citizenship among young people from diverse backgrounds. This project therefore seeks to achieve the following objectives: 1. To enhance the quality, performance and efficiency of I-VET and VET provision available to young people from BME, disadvantaged and migrant communities by developing and delivering innovative professional development opportunities for trainers, teachers and other professionals involved in delivering VET to young people in diverse, urban areas in partner countries. This is in line with Strategic Objective 2 of the ET2020 Objectives and with the ‘Youth on the Move’ and Agenda For New Skills and Jobs Flagships Initiatives set out in Europe2020 2. To enable VET professionals across schools, employers and social organizations to deliver i-VET and C-Vet that is attractive and inclusive and easily accessible and career orienting in line with the objectives set out in the Global Vision for VET 2020 set out in the Bruges Communiqué 3. Utilizing the Open Method Co-ordination approach to develop, test and implement a partnership framework and curricula for active peer learning and exchange of good practice between VET professionals, schools and employers in line with SO3 of ET2020. 4. To develop a accredited Euro-VET qualification framework for VET professionals which will enable the transfer and accumulation of learning outcomes that facilitate transnational mobility and transnational learning, enhancing and improving VET practice and provision in line with the Bruges Communiqué and Europe2020. This will link with Euro pass and ECVET. 5. To develop sustainable partnerships between VET professionals and organizations working in education, training and work including social partners who engage with marginalized young people across the EU. This is to increase the shared understanding of the labour market, and promoting a collective responsibility towards utilizing robust VET to combat poverty and social exclusion among young people from marginalized communities in line with EU2020 Flagship Initiative on promoting a new agenda for skills and jobs. In developing this project we have deliberately shifted focus from the locations to focus specifically on urban deprivation -London, Berlin, Stockholm, Barcelona and Dublin where the demographic mix of high migration and youth unemployment are at the heart of the issues we seek to address. Target group numbers: -50 VET professional participants will attend the Learning/Training/Teaching activities -220 participants will attend the local dissemination events (Multipler Events) and 35 from abroad
