Project Number 2012-1-RO1-LEO05-21125
Project Type Transfer of Innovation
You want to learn Vocational Languages, but you’re tired of traditional language classes?
Are you teaching a foreign language for a vocational purpose? Would you like to meet a new simple method to improve your lessons? Then this is the right program for you!
Come and join us, because we all "like to MOVET"!
Summary The partnership consists of 5 institutions coming from different countries and it is based on a subject of mutual interest: transferring the know-how and the method of movie-making in the language classroom and taking measures to improve the language teaching for vocational purposes.
Currently, language skills are given high importance, especially if we consider the labour market. Despite of the fact that there is a need for such trainings, in many countries teachers have limited resources and methods to teach their students languages. The method of movie-making in the classroom comes to fulfill this need and offers a very adaptable, innovative method for teachers to provide vocational language education.
The purpose of this project is to study, test, adapt and implement this teaching method in all the partner institutions. Furthermore, it aims to develop this method and to create a standard framework for teaching foreign languages for professional purposes, and job related competences, in order to achieve the following objectives:
- To develop the teaching skills and knowledge of vocational language training providers (trainers/teachers), in order to improve the quality and effectiveness of such trainings;
- To offer an adaptable, modern method of teaching vocational languages for VET institutes, in order to improve the attractiveness of such trainings;
- To highlight the importance of continuous lifelong learning of vocational language teachers and the importance of innovative methods used in vocational language education, in order to increase competitiveness of VET providers;
- To teach VET students languages and job related competences, with modern methodologies in order to increase their language outcomes and employability.
The main results of the project are: Teacher training sessions for knowledge transfer and blueprints of these trainings; Handbook about teaching languages for vocational purposes; Project website, national conferences and other dissemination activities; Min. 35 teachers trained to use the method and 150 students trained with the new method.
The project will have an impact on different VET actors: providers will enrich their knowledge, teaching skills and curricula; VET learners will be more motivated to learn; institutions providing vocational education will be able to adapt the method and so become more competitive and modern.
