2015 – 2018: Euro i-VET- Enhancing the quality of I-VET provision for young people in urban, multicultural settings, Erasmus+, Ka2, Coordinated by 15billion


 AIMs & Objectives

The overall aim of Euro – IVET is to enhance the education and training paths of the above target groups with preventative and innovative methods, techniques and resources that link with these young people’s lifestyles and cultural values and the values of vocational education providers and employers to produce high quality i-VET provision for all, in support SO2 of the ET2020 Objectives and the flagship ‘Youth on the Move’. Our specific objectives are to:

  1. Develop, test and publish new, practical and innovative professional development resources – methodologies, guidance material, curricula and competences – based on the theoretical framework of the El Hadioui ‘street culture’ thesis
  2. Enable c-VET for VET professionals to support i-VET that is attractive, inclusive, easily accessible and career-orienting in line with the objectives set out in the Global Vision for VET 2020 set out in the Bruges Communiqué
  3. Develop an accredited Euro-iVET qualification framework for VET professionals which will enable the transfer and accumulation of learning outcomes that facilitate transnational mobility and learning, enhancing and improving VET practice and provision, incorporating ECVET and Europass, and in line with the Bruges Communiqué
  4. Increase partnership working between employers, VET providers, guidance and education staff from a range of sectors, through active peer learning and exchange of good practice, in line with SO3 of ET2020

As well as embedding the European dimension throughout its aims and objectives above, it would impossible to undertake this project solely at domestic level as it brings together practitioners from 3 European inner-city contexts that have experienced severe social unrest (UK, FR, SE) with 2 (IE, DE) that, while similar in urban context, have not – to compare and share know-how, solution and practice in deprived, multi-cultural labour market settings to build new solutions that are truly transnational in addressing the street/education/employer culture challenge in i-VET.

The Project is co-ordinated by 15Billion: an organisation committed to ‘transforming young futures’ and helping young people make the most of their lives.
