Marketing Text After the funding phase of the GT VET project by the European Lifelong Learning Program the European Framework Module on Greening Technical VET will be run and developed, disseminated and exploited continuously by the Working Group “People” of the European Steel Technology Platform ESTEP. This report shows how the consortium succeeded in developing and testing a training module satisfying the qualificatory needs for green skills in the European steel industry.
Description In the project Greening Technical VET (GT VET) a pilot training module on green skills has been developed which is supposed to accelerate the implementation of industry-relevant qualifications in company related training and national VET systems continuously. It contains four elaborated sub-modules on topics directly relevant to green skills and ecological awareness: Energy, Waste, Noise, and Raw Materials. This European training module will help to obtain identical European learning outcomes in the field of green skills and sustainable awareness within technical VET (focussing on preventing pollution and securing occupational health and safety). The module was adapted and tested within four steel companies (ThyssenKruppSteel, TataSteel, ArcelorMittal Poland and Acciai Speciali Terni) and member states (Germany, United Kingdom, Poland, and Italy). All steel companies are GT VET project partners, along with research institutes in the respective countries (“tandem approach”). The partnership in general is composed of different competences and perspectives: the research institutes with their scientific knowledge, the steel companies with their practical knowhow, the European associations with their dissemination and exploitation possibilities, and the associated partners with their national and regional relevance for VET are composing a partnership that guaranteed high quality performance and cumulative added values for all the involved partners and areas.
