"Qualification, Open Resources & Toolkit for the Work-Based Learning Professional"

There is a high rate of youth unemployment in the member states of the EU. Experience shows that the employability of adults increases when they have participated in a training with practical learning components and work-based learning (WBL) concepts. As part of the WBL-Pro project, a qualification will be developed, intended to prepare teachers of vocational education and training to professionally use WBL in the daily work with the learners.

About the project

The aim of the two-year EU project (2016-2018) WBL-Pro is the elaboration of a new job profile for experts who work in the field of Work Based Learning (WBL). A qualification for European experts within the field of education should help them to expand their competences for the approach of Work-Based Learning and specifically to use them in adult education. Work-Based Learning is the combination of theoretical and practical elements in learning, as is already known, for example, in the German vocational training with the dual system.

In addition to the qualification, an online platform will be developed which will offer WBL experts the opportunity to exchange their knowledge, skills and competences. In addition, the platform will provide materials that will help WBL experts to classify, evaluate and acknowledge skills and knowledge of their learners. emcra is in charge of the 1-week train-the-trainer-training for WBL experts, which will be held in Berlin in spring 2018.

The project WBL-Pro, co-financed under a "Strategic Partnership" within the EU programme „Erasmus+“, is intended to contribute to raise the employability of adults. In the learning process of adults more suitable practical elements will be integrated. Through the qualification and the continuous exchange via the online platform, WBL experts will be supported to use their skills more effectively.
