The various approaches in which the earlier VET DUAL experiences take place make it advisable to try to define a framework in which market-relevant training and work aspects are properly oriented. The danger of the dispersion of the experiences of the regions and the states with jurisdiction on the matter, justifies the need for business organizations to provide the means to ensure the unity of the training market and, consequently, of the labour market.
The key points of the project are targeted towards guaranteeing that the skills acquired by a learner after a training process match those defined in the official curriculum. Therefore, they are suitable to move to the European supplements so that employers can easily recognize them and without the need to adopt new certifications.
During the design of this project, the partners have noted the differences between the rate of unemployment among young people and have come to know different experiences in which the use of this dual VET system greatly facilitates the transition to employment and which has helped the reduction of the unemployment rates especially among young people. This is the case of Germany.
The system is characterized by the fact that enterprises are the main responsible entities for vocational training; the focus is placed on training in enterprises and the familiarity with the working life at an early stage.
The project has been designed so to research and to transfer all good practices that have been developed in dual VET in countries that have implemented it.
The project has a duration of 36 months. From 01-09-2014 to 31-08-2017.
The budget of the project is 311.572€.
This project is co-funded by the European Union under the Call for proposal of Erasmus+ Program 2013 — EAC/S11/13. (2013/C 362/04). Erasmus+ is the EU Program in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014-2021.
