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 (TIWOTE).Developing the skills and competences of VET teachers, trainers and supervisors is the overall aim of Tiwolte.In IWOLTE we developed two training coursesfor vocational supervisors and vocational teachers. The background was how quickly working life is developing in many trades recurrent training is necessary, e.g. concerning knowledge about technique mediated vocational training for collaborative learning in work life. A modernised 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 vocational teachers need to supplement experience based knowledge with certain theoretical knowledge. Increased knowledge about conditions for on-site learning in Europe strengthens the ability of vocational supervisors and vocational teachers to create good learning opportunities for vocational students in working life. In IWOLTE the two training courses were given in the Swedish language.In this project TIWOLTE, the courses will be tested in different parts of Sweden and in partner countries. The courses will be transferred in to English and German.
1.To try out,test and execute at least one of the educational programs for vocational supervisors and vocational 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 and consensus between upper secondary school, college, university and working life through exchange of experience and dialogue within several European vocational educations.
3.To work on the European arena to realise 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 programs and further to strengthen the relevance of these programs in regard to the needs for development in each line of business respectively.
