Project Type Transfer of Innovation
Marketing Text The transfer of innovation will be directed into the development of new knowledge and skills for all varieties of people in the labour market (workers, degree-holders, employed and unemployed, self-employed and people available for employment). Many will benefit by upgrading their existing knowledge: individuals (education upgrade, acquisition of new knowledge and skills, broadening of ideas and quality of life, better job opportunities etc.), business enterprises (higher quality level due to educated employees, positive economic results of business operations) educational institutions (new field of research, new areas for VET, possibilities for developing other VET, linking with the industry, carrying out VET), the society (better life-quality for the population, healthy life-style awareness, new professional wellness services).
A set of content items will be designed within the project to influence a higher level of professionalism and competences of the staff in the wellness industry for the local residents as well as for tourists. A general aim of the project is to permanently enable a specialized education and training in Slovenia for wellness occupations. The specific aim will be fulfilled with a high quality transfer and implementation of an innovation into Slovenian environment and with the development of new wellness curricula offered to the labour market.
General objective of the project is to raise the staff competitiveness in the wellness industry to directly influence the quality of the offer. Specific objective of the project is to design a set of knowledge to be comparable with the occupational standards and competences within wellness activities around Europe.
Description The project is run by seven partners from three countries, who will competently and professionally adapt the existing German VET programme for the Slovenian environment. Within the project an international Experts Commetee (EC) will be established to study the results and analyse the needs of particular target groups within wellness activities in Slovenia. They will also study and choose the innovative contents for the transfer and adaptation, and give the guidelines for the Working Bodies (WBs) operational work. The WB 1-4 cover all four basic wellness elements (WB1 physical wellness, WB2 mental wellness, WB3 beauty, WB4 healthy nutrition). EC will state their opinion and the guidelines, and confirm the final results of their work. The transfer of European dimensions at the VET formation will be evaluated by a representative of the European Wellness Institute, national dimensions will be evaluated by the Ministry of education and sport of RS. A long-term cooperation of the partners will be supported by the establishment of the enterprises network for practical training (PT) and the proposal for establishing the Wellness Institute of Slovenia.
