Last 16th and 17th of September took place the 2nd transnational meeting of the Industrial VET Hub in Viborg, Denmark. Our partners in Mercantec hosted us for two-days meeting with rest of participants from Westerburg, Tartu and Barcelona.
During the meeting, Xarxa FP presented the new project website, launched last month of April, as well as a members-only intranet run in parallel over the last months by Sacha D. Faneford, an outstanding IT trainee from Mercantec, to introduce all relevant country data on the particularities of our education systems and industial labour markets. Thank you Sacha!
Xarxa FP also presented the results of the desk research activities undertaken by each partner, from which we created our first infography as a form of factsheet, with the objective to reflect main facts & figures of the current state of affairs in all project countries, regarding proportion of women studying industrial VET, women employed in industrial occupations or gender wage gap in industrial sector as a whole. Please click here to see the infography.
Moreover, we have embarked upon the third phase of “Good Practices Pooling” in the Industrial VET Hub project. During these next months, partners will be progressively collecting and submitting initiatives, methodologies, projects or processes with good potential for learning and inspiration in our territories. The final output will be the elaboration of a Manual of Good Practices that will be presented and discussed during the next transnational meeting that is going to take place next February 2020 in the city of Tartu, Estonia.
