In IWOLTE we developed two training courses for vocatio¬nal supervisors and vocational teachers. The background was how quickly working life is developing in many trades recurrent training is necessary, e.g. concerning know¬ledge about technique mediated vocational training for collaborative learning in work life.
A training of vocational supervisors and vocational teachers make use of the new possibilities of communication and learning offered in the modern information society. Vocational supervisors and voca¬tional teachers need to supplement experience based knowledge with certain theoretical knowledge. Increased knowledge about conditions for on-site learning in Euro¬pe strengthens the ability of vocational supervisors and vocational teachers to create good learning opportunities for vocational students in working life.
The main purpose of the project is to transfer results from the LdV project ”Integration of Workplace Learning in Vocational Teacher Education” (IWOLTE). That project is also the background for the new project (TIWOLTE). Developing the skills and competences of VET teachers, trainers and supervisors is the overall aim
The aim of the project is:
1. To try out, test and execute educa-tional programs for vocational supervisors and vo- cational teachers that has been developed within the IWOLTE project. The participants will, after attending the course, show knowledge and understanding for how they can support learning processes within their line of business.
2. To develop cooperation between upper secondary school, college, university and wor- king life through exchange of experience and dialogue within several European vocational educations.
3. To work on the European arena to pedagogical vocational courses and through those develop the transparency between our partners e.g. by developing
the content of a learning platform and other IT-
techniques needed for blended learning.
4. To raise the competence of vocational supervisors
active in their profession as well as active vocational teachers through participation in the educational pro- grams to strengthen the relevance of
these programs in regard to the needs for develop- ment in each line of business respectively.
