Product Type website
Marketing Text The aim of this multimedia toolkit is to illustrate the opportunities for co-operation between rural business, vocational education and training (VET) and higher education/research. From it you can find experiences of practical real life co-operation pilots, under each pilot description you can find a short story of what was done and how it worked out. The infographics further illustrate the piloting process and in the videos you can find pilot participants comments on the benefits, challenges and suggestions for successful co-operation. Long term co-operation plans provide practical examples for you on how to create sustainable co-operation as well as the Envolwe and COMCOT handbooks developed under previous initiatives which will give you many practical pointers on what to keep in mind when starting a co-operation or taking it to the next level. In addition, in the case library, best practices of co-operation have been collected together from around Europe.
All the project’s results (collected material and experiences from the pilots) were together and a Multimedia tool kit (www.connect-vet.eu) was developed. The aim of the toolkit is to encourage the systematic co-operation between these three actors and provide practical tools for it by providing:
1) a case library of the good practices
2) practical examples to help to estimate the benefits and challenges of co-operation
3) new ideas for developing the co-operation
4) practical guidelines and methods to establish the co-operation
5) support to avoid the most common pitfalls
The material includes, reports, text documents, videos, infographics and pictures.
In addition as a results of the project the started pilots created a three year co-operation plan and continue the activities after the project ended. Further information on the pilots can be found from: http://www.connect-vet.eu/?page_id=2236 The pilots relate to rural tourism, regional SME development, job placements of the students with special needs, NWFP marketing and nursery.
