In the context of the coronavirus pandemic, the activity of the VET sector was severely disrupted, even worse than other education sectors (e.g. general education), and the needs in terms of upgrading digital competences of all stakeholders were more obvious than ever.
According to the ‘Survey on how VET stakeholders are facing the COVID-19 emergency’ carried out in 36 countries by the European Commission (May 2020), ‘a majority of respondents call for support to develop simulation environments/virtual reality for VET specific learning content to train the specific practical sectoral skills’ and ‘there are few cases of online vocational specific material.’ Although OERs on VET topics do exist, they are not all the time adapted to the specific needs of each learner.
INTRAVET aims to support teachers of technical disciplines to develop and adapt their training materials, focusing on their digital competencies, which are still not adequate.
INTRAVET develops innovative training content support VET providers build their capacity to respond to digitalization related challenges, by developing their competences related to strategic digital development.
INTRAVET is tailored to the specific needs of selected target groups:
- , who need to improve their competences in strategic development and ability to support staff and learners
- VET teachers/trainers/instructors, who need to improve their ability to deliver high quality classes in online format
- , which need to improve their capacity to offer better trainings and minimize the negative impact of the restrictions
