How to encourage young people and provide them with adequate support so they remain interested in learning in a global context that is particularly challenging?

In the framework of Sillman project, two webinars will be hosted next week providing an opportunity to share regional experiences and hear about support initiatives at European level.

Enthusiasm for technical & vocational training

One of the challenges in Technical and Vocational Education and Training is that it is often associated with negative representations such as the difficulty to follow general education or attend university.

The objective of the first webinar on “New enthusiasm for vocational education & training: boosting self-confidence in young people”, which will take place on 27 January 2021 at 10:00 CET, is to learn about regional policies and practices aimed at making young people more aware of the opportunities related to Technical and Vocational Education and Training.



Vocational Training in Times of Lockdown and Pandemic

In the context of the pandemic, it is not just learning modalities, which have been dramatically changed, it is the role itself of schools and teachers which was challenged. With lockdowns episodes across Europe, vocational education and training (VET) schools had to convert physical classrooms and work-based learning spaces into digital learning environments overnight.

The webinar “Technical and vocational education & training during times of lockdown & pandemic” will take place on January 28th at 10:00 CET, with a focus on Vocational Training in Times of Lockdown and Pandemic. Experiences from the regions will be shared, with a focus on preventing early school leaving during the pandemic.
