Work package 4 - Dissemination
The VENHANS WP4 – Dissemination, aims at promoting the external visibility of the VET4EU2 platform and at carrying out activities to sustain the diffusion all over Europe of VET learning tools, methods, practices, in particular those aimed to improve the attractiveness and quality of VET provision and the professional development of VET teachers/trainers.
The activities of WP4 are divided into two main levels: current dissemination activities (websites, mailing list, social media as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram) and structural propagation efforts – long-term effect actions that aims to promote a widespread knowledge exchange of VET culture and knowledge, the promotion of the benchmarking and quality development approach, the empowerment of the VET WEEK action to foster internationalisation and attractiveness of VET.
The WP4 package includes those actions VET4EU2 members are willing to develop and carry out together, strengthening the relationship and cooperation between the umbrella networks.
To do so, it has 4 main activities, the WP4 team has been working on, resulting in 4 outputs:
DIGITAL VET MAGAZINE
VET Gazette – a digital VET magazine, with the aim to provide added value information to everyone interested in the VET world. Through this magazine, the VENHANS consortium wants to create the opportunity to give voice even to those ones who lack the language skills, to be heard. We would like for the VET Gazette to become a consistent tool, able to promote VET all over Europe. Within the project it is planned to release 3 issues focused on different topics relevant for VET, but it is envisioned to continue this publication even after the end of the project funding, in the framework of the VENHANS sustainability.
So far 2 editions have been issued, available through joining the VET4EU2 Hub, or here:
Issue dedicated to VET and Social Inclusion with special focus on Gender engagement, Re-skilling & Up-skilling, Economically disadvantaged groups, Migrants & minority groups, and Accessibility & students with special needs.
The VENHANS team wishes to investigate the knowledge, organisations within and outside the VET4EU2 platform have about the European Vocational Skills Week and understand the level of involvement they wish to have or not have with it and why. The census regarding the VET Skills Week 2020 has been successfully carried out during the first year of the project.
Stay tuned for the 2nd Census.
