The best of EU neighbourhood at the European Vocational Skills Week
The best of the learning sector from the EU neighbouring countries comes back at the European Vocational Skills Week 2020, that will be held next November 9-13. Following an open call, and a thorough pre-selection, two education centres from non-European countries have been nominated as the Award finalists for ETF Innovation and Skills Award.
The centre has developed a program to train the trainers in the construction sector, so that they can move towards distance learning. The methodology consists in combining classical and more high-tech distance learning. After the course, construction trainers can successfully design a distance education course, and students are ready for the profession.
The institute has developed a skills upgrading curriculum targeting teachers and trainers, which focuses on interactive, multimedia and cloud technologies in vocational education. In the program, trainers are actively involved in developing assessment criteria, and they experience peer, digital, and project-based learning. At the end of the course, teachers can design and implement modern multimedia lessons, and deliver them online.

Institutions from EU neighbouring countries are making their way in this edition of the European Vocational Skills Week also in other categories, such as:
