Title Discovering the Archaeologists of Europe 2014
Project Number 528091-LLP-1-2012-1-UK-LEONARDO-LNW
Project Type Networks
Country EU-Centralised Projects
Professional archaeology in Europe is being confronted by the issue that –
• archaeological practice is under economic pressure following the effects of the global financial crisis and this is particularly affecting employers’ abilities to invest in VET
• it is difficult for individuals to move transnationally because qualifications are not universally recognised.
This project is addressing these issues in 19 European states and on a pan-European level.
This project will sustain a Thematic Network of organisations with shared concerns for the delivery of VET in archaeology, by
- supporting close links between VET to working life in archaeology in order to make VET more responsive to labour market needs, and
- improving sectoral identification and anticipation of skill needs and their integration in VET provision.
Partners will collect data from sectoral employers in their own state, identifying VET priorities, and will then present recommendations using this evidence to VET providers. Key data will be presented in a transnational report which will combine results from 19 participating states.
This will support the dissemination and implementation of common approaches, methods and tools linked to the New Skills for New Jobs initiative.
