Title Approval of Modules in Prevocational Training
Project Number D/05/B/F/PP-146 283
Product Interactive Tool
Title Interactive Tool
Product Type CD-ROM
A draft version of the interactive tool has been developed, by January 2007 its prototype will be completed. The tool will be put to test by experts in all participating countries and evaluated with regard to concept and content. It will be translated in all partner languages and promoted by relevant institutions in prevocational training. The tool will be burned on CD-Roms and can be down loaded charge free from the internet.
The users of the product are primarily trainers and pedagogues working with disadvantaged young people as well as planners in the institutions. Other users groups are those institutions that are concerned with the accreditation, certification and development of qualification measures.
As a result a tool will be developed that allows to create, choose and carry out modules in prevocational education and training for disadvantaged young people. This interactive tool will contain a common catalogue of criteria on three levels:
· the system level of decision makers and planners, refelcting the framework conditions
· the institutional level of teachers and practicioners reflecting the organisational and pedagogical work in the institutions
· the individual level refelcting the work with individual disadvantaged young people.
On all three levels different work areas are included such as "collaboration and networks" and "assessment".
In spite of coommon aims and similar problems huge cultural and system specific differences exist in the countries which lead to diverse working conditions in the institutions concernd. It is therefore of importance that the tool can be adapted to country and user specific needs.
The interactivity of the tool makes sure that users can contribute their own thoughts and initiate a discussion with their colleagues. Thus the tool can be applied by all user groups in the partner countries and after the end of the project in other countries as well.
