It’s just technology – isn’t it? (German / English)

Since a number of years, organisations active in vocational education and training (VET) throughout Europe try to become more inclusive, as to implement high quality education for all citizens. Recently, digitalisation gained relevance on their agenda as well, as it is considered the cornerstone of the digital transformation of EU business and society with the promise of an enormous growth potential for Europe. However, the digital transformation of VET proved itself to be far more complex than just to procure and use pieces of information and communication technology (ICT). Due to this complexity, VET organisations find themselves in the dilemma to either split their resources or drop one of their ambitious goals. The ERASMUS+ project EICON found a third option, discarding this “either-or” restriction, and identified synergies between inclusion and digitalisation in VET. First results to be used by VET organisations are now available.

On 1 December 2019, a new research project will start to evaluate the effects of Baden-Württemberg's funding principles on the participation of severely disabled people in working life. The Kommunalverband für Jugend und Soziales Baden-Württemberg (KVJS) is particularly interested in providing findings on the extent to which the measures thus implemented for the labour market-oriented qualification of participants can contribute to an improved participation situation. Based on the results of this study, professional standards are to be reviewed and further developed.

How to make vocational education and training accessible to all?

People with disabilities continue to be disproportionately excluded from the labour market Europe-wide. Vocational education and training (VET) plays a crucial role, as it acts as the joint between school education and the working world. How information and communication technologies (ICT) can be helpful in making VET more inclusive and therefore in better preparing learners for the labour market is the content of the ERASMUS+ project EICON. Project partners just met in Germany for the first of a series of several meetings to exchange good practice and to develop effective solutions.
