During Erasmus+ project representatives of businesses and vocational education schools supplemented their knowledge about implementation of work-based learning

The second cycle has begun for Erasmus+ KA3 project “Testing New Approaches to Training VET and Workplace Tutors for Work Based Learning (TTT4WBL)”, which is intended for work-based learning tutors in businesses and vocational education institutions.

In April 2018 the training cycle was started in Latvian Railway Training Centre. Railway industry specialists learned practical methods and pedagogical techniques to provide support to the learner in work-based learning (WBL) and established cooperation between the educational institution and the company in organizing work-based learning.

Participants welcomed opportunity to gain new knowledge and exchange in experience with other colleges.

Participants not only gain new knowledge and skills but also are participating in research process which is organized by experts from JAMK University of Applied Sciences in Finland. The aim of the research process is to determine the impact of joint learning on the quality of the process as well as to strengthen collaboration between schools and companies.

Eleven more seminars are planned in Riga and other regions this year. Different WBL tutors from schools and companies will be attending these seminars.

The goal of the project is to support the introduction of work-based learning in the three Baltic countries by testing new approaches for the training of practitioners. Leading partner of the project is the National Centre for Education and it is implemented from 1 February 2017 to 31 January 2020.
