Between the 3rd and 4th of April, we celebrated the Kick-off meeting of the KA2 Project Industrial VET Hub at the Xarxa FP headquarters in Barcelona.
This first transnational meeting counted with the participation of a total of 8 industrial VET experts of partner organisations such as BBS Westerburg (Westerburg, Germany), Mercantec (Viborg, Denmark), Tartu Vocational Education Centre (Tartu, Estonia) and Xarxa FP Secretariat General, being the latter the coordinator of the project.
As part of the first phase on the coordination of the KA2 project, participants had the chance to review together the main features of the project, such as the general and specific objectives, project structure into phases and activities, expected results and impact, timeline, roles and responsibilities of each partner and budget allocation.
In addition, and as part of the planning of next steps and upcoming activities within the second project phase, all members were asked to discuss and decide together the best collection methods to be used for the research activities that all partners must base their work during the following months, in particular regarding the good practices existing in their respective cities with regards to the type of skills demanded by industrial companies, always lined up with new industrial occupations and from a gender inclusive approach.
The results of these research activities will be discussed during the next transnational meeting, which is planned to be held on the next 16th and 17th of September 2019 in Viborg.
