Project Number A/06/B/F/PP-158.301
Project Type Pilot Project, project with multiplying effect (2000-2006)
Marketing Text The project focuses on the high drop-out rates amongst young students in the transition phase from middle to upper secondary school. The project will conduct a study on the special qualification and skills needed by teachers when teaching adolescent students and will develop an online course for teachers, trainers and vocational counsellors.
MOSEP addresses the growing problem of adolescents (aged 14 to 16) dropping out of the formal education system around Europe. Students of this age find themselves in a transition phase in their lives where they have to choose between going into upper secondary education or entering vocational training. It is a time when they have to make decisions and need to be supported in making the best choices for their future careers.
The project focuses on developing a study, identifying the needs of teachers, trainers and vocational counsellors, and creating an online course for the support of teachers, trainers and vocational counsellors as well as accompanying materials for better understanding of e-portfolios as a method for self-organised and competence-oriented learning.
- conduct a study on the special qualification and skills needed by teachers when teaching adolescent students.
