Due to this different reason the partners of ALLVIEW – Alliance of Centres of Vocational Excellence in the Furniture and Wood Sector (project number: 621192-EPP-1-2020-1-ESEPPKA3- VET-COVE) are implementing different actions to fosters the above-mentioned objectives.
ALLVIEW is a project financed under the Erasmus+ programme KA3 – Support for policy reform. The project is carried out thanks to the cooperation of a 24 partners from different European countries, backgrounds, and expertise for a duration of 4 years (2020-2024).
ALLVIEW project focuses on the role that professional excellence centers have in EU VET policy, a topic which today is becoming of a great importance. In particular, the project focuses on VET centers of excellence of two specific sectors: furniture and wood. In these two sectors, EU VET schools seek to implement effective laboratory activities for the training of their students using “traditional methods” of wood and furniture manufacturing. However, what emerges from the analysis of these two sectors is that there is a lack of training on certain topics related to technology, innovation and both on social and environmental challenges.
In this regards the ALLVIEW project consortium of partners also wants to experience a learning based on the dual system in which students and teachers, through practical internships and in-company training, are able to prepare the workforce of the future by equipping them with the most innovative skills required by the labor market.
In addition, and with this goal, ALLVIEW project is involving the main representatives of the sector and the regional training authorities with the aim of adapting all the results to the sectoral needs and aligning them with all the main VET policies, ensuring their sustainability.
