Marketing Text The THESEIS VET model was validated via the conduction of a series of pilot tests at each of the partner countries. An online forum was be created providing a platform for discussion of topics and elements of the VET model, the contents of the training material and the delivery methods implemented and shared feedback between learners and tutors. A pilot report has been prepared containing a detailed description about the implementation of the demo VET model in the partner countries (process steps, participants, evaluation results, conclusions and recommendations).
The development of the initial version of the VET model was followed by a separate phase dedicated to pilot trials and evaluation of the new VET model. Pilot testing allowed the members of the target audience to try the produced material prior to its full deployment in order to provide feedback on its features and functions. The trials took place in seven E.U. countries and were combined with the organisation of parallel informative Workshops. Experts from the partner institutions who were engaged in the development of the model were responsible for the coordination of the whole process and the further exploitation of the project’s outcomes. An online forum was created, via the VCP, providing a platform for discussion of topics and elements of the VET model, the contents of the training material, the delivery methods implemented and for sharing feedback between learners and tutors. Each trial site was set-up so that a representative sample of the specific workforce involving a mix of workers, health and safety managers and technicians, engineers, environmental management consultants and experts and students of technical schools participated in the pilot testing. More than 100 participants attended the Informative - Pilot Testing Workshops, enlarging furthermore the existing network of potential future users of the VET model and training material.
At the end of each training session, the learners were asked to evaluate on-line the VET model. The assessment addressed the learners’ perception of the course as well as the extent to which the trainees improved their knowledge and increased their skills as a result of participating in the learning process.
An Evaluation Report summarized the results of trials in all partner countries (available on THESEIS official Website). The conclusions were used by the Management Unit of the THESEIS project for further adaptations and modifications of the learning materials and compilation of the final version of the THESEIS VET model.
Target group Mix of workers, Health and Safety experts, solid and waste water treatment facilities managers and employess, engineers and technicians.
The conclusions have been used by the Management Unit of the THESEIS project for further adaptations and modifications of the learning materials and compilation of the final version of the VET model.
A Report was conducted summarizing the results of the trials. The Pilot Testing Report is available at the projects's website at the following link:http://www.theseis-training.eu/main/?page_id=5327
Area of application Exploitation of guidelines in order to refine the contents and compile the final version of the VET model.
