Strategic Partnerships

 

The concept of Mobiliteach stems from the project Work Based Learning Summer School project G.A. 2017-1-IT01-KA202-006226. Launched in 2017, its aim was to create training opportunities for improving teachers competences in the field of Erasmus+ projects for students mobility. Its network has grown throughout the years to include more VET schools and organizations, creating new strategic partnerships.

One of these was Mobiliteach: Improving Work Based Learning in Mobility by Increasing Teachers’ Planning Competences G.A. 2018-1-EL01-KA202-047962 that developed new training resources for teachers upskilling in Erasmus+ program.

Another one was Mobiliteach – In-depth Sectoral Specialisation of VET Teachers G.A. 2019-1-FR01-KA202-063205 and also Enhancing Teachers’ Competences on Sustainable Tourism G.A. 2020-1-IT01-KA202-008511, both widening the scope of their trainings objectives beyond Erasmus+ competences building. According to specific sectoral needs, they aimed to create connections among didactics and international internships. The objective was to develop new strategies for their mutual integration and, in this way, enriching and strengthening the professional career development in VET.

Moreover, the methodology and training modules conceived during these strategic partnerships have been a reference point for the development of Mobiliteach Teacher Training within the project Intervet WB G.A. EAC-2019-057, addressed to Western Balkans teachers and trainers.

All in all, the Mobiliteach network keeps growing dynamically but the overall commitment remains unchanged: provide active learning opportunities for European teachers on a regular basis, mainly through the exchange of good practices, experimental activities and working groups.

 

Work Based Learning Summer School

2017-1-IT01-KA202-006226

November 2017 – October 2019

WBL Summer School has been a 2 years project aimed to create an innovative training module (the Mobiliteach Summer School) to increase the quality and the quantity of learning mobility in VET by allowing practitioners to share experiences and good practices. Through the exchange of practices and tools, the partnership has developed a training course on internationalisation for school staff which has been tested twice. The first edition of the “WBL Summer School” took place in Bologna (Italy) in June 2018 and the second one in La Rochelle (France) in July 2019. These Summer Schools worked as pilot initiatives which allowed to test some prototypes of training events that will be replicated in the future to equip as many European teachers as possible.

Throughout two years, experts of STEM, mobility providers, and VET institutes will organise three training events for exchanging their experiences on cross-disciplinary practices and students’ mobility. Workshops will be organised in order to develop possible pathways in which the educational institution could improve the integration of interdisciplinary didactics, also thanks to the integration of international WBL experience in the curricula.
