AGILITe addresses three key challenges simultaneously; (1) building the digital competences of VET tutors; (2) building the entrepreneurial spirit of VET tutors; (3) building an understanding of the European Green Deal and the new business opportunities it offers. AGILITe will develop a continuous professional development training programme that simultaneously addresses DigCompEdu, EntreComp and The European Green Deal, to assist VET tutors in developing innovative and engaging learning frameworks to harness the potential of nascent entrepreneurs by building their key competences. The bespoke digital training tools will be designed for access through the most popular media channels and will use a gamified approach to build tutor competences incrementally.
The key outputs proposed will include:
IO1: AGILITe DigCompEdu based in-service training programme presented for online use to build key digital competences of VET tutors. IO1 will comprise 6 EduZines and offer 24 hours of face-to-face instruction supplemented by and 15 hours of self-directed learning.
IO2: AGILITe EntreComp based in-service training programme addressing the 5 competence areas in the 'Ideas & Opportunities' section of EntreComp to support the development of an entrepreneurial mindset within the VET community. IO2 will comprise 5 EduZines and offer 20 hours of face-to-face instruction supplemented by and 15 hours of self-directed.
IO3: AGILITe European Green Deal in-service training programme for VET tutors that build an understanding of the principles of circularity. IO3 will comprise 8 EduZines and offer 32 hours of face-to-face instruction supplemented by and 18 hours of self-directed
IO4: AGILITe MOOC and Community of Practice: This MOOC will house all learning materials and facilitate exchange of best practice and collaboration between partners and target groups throughout appropriate phases of the project.
The target group of AGILITe is VET tutors.
The key focus of the AGILITe project is the improvement of VET service provision. To achieve this, partners are proposing to develop a comprehensive in-service training programme for VET tutors to build their digital competences; develop an entrepreneurial spirit within the VET sector; and raise awareness of the employment opportunities that the European Green Deal offers for individuals by outlining the key principles of circularity and ensuring that VET tutors can present themselves as experts in this new business development.
