New European Network for the Green Skills in Vocational Education and Training is ERASMUS+ project consisting of co-operation between 9 partners from 8 countries. Savo Consortium for Education is the coordinator of the project.

We work on the overall development objective to further mainstream the integration of sustainability aspects in VET by enhancing the competences of staff involved in VET on sustainable development. One of the key questions is how, practically, education and training, and skills can develop and support the green transition. Our focus is to identify core green skills that should be incorporated in VET programmes. We use the Green Comp (the European sustainability competence framework) as a common framework to identify the core green skills of different sectors.

Project establishes a methodology for educators’ skills training in some of the key sectors that come with the greatest opportunity for growth of green jobs. Key sectors are hospitality management and tourism, business and administration, logistics/transport and construction sector with the goal to enhance the VET educator’s skills and knowledge on sustainability potentials of their own field. In-depth studying of green skills and building future will be emphasised in Learning, Teaching and Training Activities (LTTAs) of the key sectors end invited VET teachers or staff.

The project portal is a platform for peer-learning, exchange of experiences and know-how. It helps VET staff to identificate best practices on how VET can act as a bridge to the sustainable development of working life and support the green transition. Also there will be events in each participative countries to spread the knowledge of curriculum planning incorporating green skills on November 2023.

Duration of the project is 01.01.2022 – 31.12.2023
