Project Type Transfer of Innovation
Marketing Text Ever since the closure of the Swedish Paper School in Markaryd, SUM, in 2004 there has been practically no development of training material intended for vocational training at the non-university level. Existing training material for the pulp and paper industry, most of it in textbook form without electronic copies, was written in the 1990s. The technical development in the field has been rapid and the existing training material is thus very old-fashioned and heavily in need of an update. The main objective of this project was to create an ICT-based toolbox for competence development in the pulp and paper VET sector.
Description The project gathered partners from five countries. The partner organisations are enterprises, universities, federations and a VET school. The project had three main parts: 1) Translating and adapting an interactive learning material, developed by the industry and paper schools in Europe, to the Swedish market. 2) Updating textbooks for use in the pulp and paper VET sector. 3) Developing a competence tool for the pulp and paper industry. Apart from this a pedagogic model for using the learning material was developed.
