Erasmus+ project “Testing New Approaches to Training VET and Workplace Tutors for Work Based Learning” (TTT4WBL), grant agreement No. 2016-2927/005-001, supports an innovative approach – tandem training – for the training of trainers in work-based learning (WBL) of the Baltic countries – Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.
A common competence profile of WBL trainers in the Baltics promoting a common Baltic vision while respecting the needs of each particular country in developing the training programs for WBL trainers. The project developed and piloted a sample training program for in-company and vocational education and training (VET) institutions’ trainers. Each Baltic country developed its own training program in relation to the national priorities, legal framework and the interests and opinions of involved stakeholders in the particular country and based on a commonly agreed competence profile of a WBL trainer.
A Finnish research institute provided methodological support based on the analysis of the opinions of involved stakeholders from all the Baltic countries. The project innovation – is the tandem training approach with an added value – sharing and co-creation of knowledge based on the expertise of participants with a different professional background in VET institutions and companies.
