Marketing Text This was an on-the-job training course for teachers and tutors in work placement in the sector of early childhood education. The benefit for the participants was competence in ECVET principles and intercultural education.
This was a professional training unit for teachers, trainers and persons responsible for vocational training. The unit consisted of a week-long (5 working days) course that covers (1) the ECVET principles, (2) intercultural pedagogy, (3) assessment of learning outcomes, (4) best practice in early childhood education (with a closer look at day-care centres in Gothenburg), and (5) a closer look at matters of education-policy in Sweden in general and Gothenburg in particular.
The unit was set up in such a way that small working groups would work on these topics in detail after an initial lecture or presentation introduced the field. The working groups compiled the five topics in such a way that a viable transfer of innovations into their home countries is feasible.
Moreover, the course set the ground for trans-national mobility projects of students and trainees that follows in spring 2012.
Target group Teachers, trainers and persons responsible for vocational education and training
As a result of the training unit all participants got to know the ECVET principles in detail. Also, the participants got to know intercultural education in general and the IMPAECT unit in particular in order to apply the knowledge, skills and competencies in the pursuit of the students' mobility.
A great focus was on the paradigm change away from instructional teaching towards a student-centered competence appraisal in VET.
Area of application Early-Childhood education; general VET
