the project

eWBLearning is a 30-month project (October 2018-March 2021) funded by the Erasmus Plus Programme.
The project idea grew up in Italy, where the coordinator Associazione Nazionale Presidi is very active in defending the role and promoting work-based learning experiences at school. Other project partners are Associazione Euphoria (Italy), Fetico (Spain), Institute of entrepreneurship development (Greece), Provincial Education in Flanders
(Belgium), the Bulgarian Development Agency (Bulgaria) and Munster Technological University MUT (Ireland).
The partnership strongly believes that the quality of work-based learning (WBL) is crucial to help students connecting their learning with the world of work, developing employability skills that employers search for, building their enterprise capability and making more informed choices about their career options.
As a result, this project aims to create a EU model/scheme (Work-Based Learning Teacher Training Model) to be promoted all over Europe, able to settle the minimum training requirements necessary for teachers, headmasters, trainers and mentors in both school and work-based settings in view of their continuous professional development.
More specifically, the project wants to reach the following objectives:
– improve the capacity development of the schools and training institutions that should implement WBL paths/programmes;
– improve the provision of better guidance on skills and competencies;
– develop entrepreneurial mindset of school staff to create partnerships between schools and businesses to promote work-based learning;
– develop tutoring and coaching skills in teachers;
– identify in the learning paths competences to be acquired through non-formal learning and create a framework to recognize them;
– introduce systematic approaches for the longlife professional development of teachers and educators and students;
– develope efficient work-based experience within the schools.
