University of Maribor has become a member of “E-STEPS", an international strategic partnership for vocational education and training.
On 21 of January 2021, the kick-off meeting of the E-STEPS (E-Skills Training on Employability Practices & Solutions) project took place online in form of a video conference. E-STEPS is an Erasmus+ funded project under the Key Action 2: Strategic Partnerships for vocational education and training.
E-STEPS will increase the mobility of vocational school students from five EU countries by developing their knowledge and soft skills and will enable the digital integration of learning, teaching, training, and youth work as well as the development of a European area of skills and qualifications along with improvement of the competencies of adult educators.
The activities undertaken in the project involve the creation and testing of innovative tools in the form of an e-learning platform and a set of educational materials (guides, e-learning courses, face-to-face workshop programmes and reports relating to the evaluation of the effectiveness of vocational education in the context of the needs of the youth labour market).
Results of the project will include a report on the analysis of the needs of vocational education, an innovative, multi-lingual platform with workshop guides containing practical exercises, guides for educators, case studies of young participants and interviews with partners collaborating at international meetings.
The coordinator of the project is Stowarzyszenie EURO LIDER from Lublin (Poland) and the partners are ERIFO from Rome (Italy), Valencia Inno Hub from Valencia (Spain), Know and Can Association from Sofia (Bulgaria) and the University of Maribor (Slovenia).
The project will run until end of December 2022.
