The Project Survival Skills for Trainers of Apprentices in Initial VET (SUSTAIN VET) ended

This month we are successfully closing the Project “Survival Skills for Trainers of Apprentices in Initial VET” (SUSTAIN VET), which was a two-year initiative implemented in the period from October 2020 to September 2022.

On that occasion, on September 28, 2022, an event was held in Sofia, Bulgaria with the presence of the project team, representatives from educational institutions, organizations, companies and vocational schools that implement learning through work.

During the event, the key achievements within the framework of the project were presented and an open discussion was held on the effects it had, as well as the challenges related to the implementation of dual education in practice.

The aim of the SUSTAIN VET project was to support mentors in the planning, implementation and evaluation of learning through work, through the development of two intellectual papers: “Training of Trainers Program” and manual “How to be a successful mentor in a company”. Through these papers, the active involvement of business in work-based learning is maintained, as well as the high quality and relevance of company mentoring is guaranteed. You can uncover more about these manuals here.

The project falls under the KA2 Strategic partnership in the field of vocational education and training (VET) of the Erasmus+ Program, and was successfully implemented in partnership with: Modern Education Foundation, Bulgaria, Bulgarian Branch Chamber of Woodworking and Furniture Industry, Bulgaria, M&M Profuture Training, S.L., Spain and Panevėžys Vocational education and training center, Lithuania.
