The Let's Campaign project aims to assess two cross-cutting priorities of Vocational Education and Training (VET):
On the one hand, transparency and recognition of competences and qualifications: The idea behind the project is to increase the knowledge and image of VET, making VET and the resulting career opportunities it offers clearer and more transparent for students, families, schools and stakeholders in general. The aim is to strengthen information on the benefits of embarking on a career pathway, to accompany the information already provided on career pathway opportunities for 13-26 year olds, VET opportunities, school enrolments, etc.
This project aims to enhance the image and reputation of the VET sector by demonstrating its high level of employability and its sensitivity to innovative and sustainable issues.
Moreover, the initiative will generate partnerships aimed at promoting work-based learning in all its forms and improving access to training and qualifications for all.
Training for the labour market
These objectives of the project are in line with the main activities of the partners, as they are all engaged in promoting and supporting VET: sector-specific vocational training centres and associations and organisations working on the development of VET and the recruitment of students to vocational schools, as well as promoting qualifications that match the demand of the labour market.
The challenge ahead for this consortium is to increase access and promote work-based learning, rehabilitating the image of the VET sector and improving the possibility for students to receive valuable, useful and competitive training for the labour market.
The final development of a handbook will provide inspiration and guidance to other VET institutions facing the same problems as the partners.
