In the course of September 2021, a workshop for trainers of company mentors was organized, as part of the phase of testing and evaluation of the first intellectual output (IO1) within the Survival Skills for Trainers of Apprentices in Initial Vocational Education and Training (IVET) project. The participants included nine advisors from the Center for Vocational Education and Training (CVET).
They had the opportunity to get acquainted with the practices in the countries participating in this project: Bulgaria, Spain and Lithuania, wherein the first intellectual outcome – Advanced Program for Trainers of Company Mentors was also presented.
The advisors actively participated and gave suggestions regarding the modules of this program. They were already familiar with similar contents because they worked on the revision and preparation of the new National Program for Trainers of Company Mentors, which was adopted in July 2021.
The project strengthens the provision of work-based learning which is aimed at monitoring the rapid technological, economic and social development. The aim is to prepare innovative, intellectual papers in order to support the mentors from the companies in the planning, design, implementation and evaluation of the programs for initial vocational education and training.
