Italian-Slovenian alliance for cross-border work-based learning
Priority Axis 4
Enhancing capacity building and cross-border governance
Specific Objective: 
OS 4.1.
Investment Priority: 
PI 11CTE
Typology: 
Standard
Overall Objective of the Project: 

To improve cooperation between public training institutions and companies within the Program area with regard to work-based learning, with the help of innovative approaches and shared standards for the implementation of cross-border mobility pathways. The project offers joint solutions for the area’s common challenges and opportunities identified under C.1, through actions aimed at improving the capacity for institutional cooperation.

Project summary: 

Despite the availability of the EQF and ECVET European reference technical frameworks, which allow for the comparison of national qualification systems and provide for the portability of learning outcomes, thereby facilitating the dialogue between VET actors, this has not sufficed to generate an increase in cross-border mobility among users undergoing training within the Program area. The common challenge is to provide the Italian-Slovenian area’s SMEs with what they need to profitably cooperate with the suppliers of training services and to become more competitive on the international markets. It is therefore necessary to: mobilise the public authorities and improve their cross-border institutional competence; enter into a framework agreement between the public authorities and the trade associations regarding the cross-border promotion and management of mobility for learning purposes; prepare ad hoc solutions and adapt existing tools to the specific cross-border context in order to facilitate cooperation within the Program area and make room for joint outward actions by VET actors (including SMEs). The desired change involves the establishment of a forum with the task of developing, promoting, and monitoring cross-border alternation, and providing those who engage in such cooperation with the tools that will help them with the relative administrative tasks, as well as with the planning of the expected results of the mobility. The desired change will allow the Program area’s SMEs to improve their competitiveness on the international markets; this will be made possible thanks to the cooperation that will be established between companies and suppliers of training services, and the possibility of mutual recognition of qualifications; companies will be able to meet their qualification needs even beyond the national borders, by drawing from a larger pool that includes the entire Program area.

Main results: 

The project aims to generate a 10% increase in cross-border mobility for work-based learning purposes, in which actors in the educational and production systems on both sides of the border will participate. The project result is linked to the axis result indicator, as it presupposes an increase in cross-border cooperation between citizens (students and families) and institutions within the area (schools) through the creation of new channels of communication and collaboration between the interested organisations (schools and companies). The contribution to the axis result indicator, which aims to measure the interested parties’ perception with regard to the quantity and quality of cross-border cooperation, will be important, as both the VET institutions and the production sector will be broadly involved in the activities and in the use of the outputs. Given the nature of the target groups, an improvement in perception among young people can be expected, who, according to the 9/2015 Eurobarometer surveys, are less involved than the elderly. The project result indicator aims to measure the effect on the indirect beneficiaries. Data that will be measured: students, graduates within one year, VET operators participating in learning mobility that started within the survey’s reference year. Data sources: Erasmus + National Agencies. Filtration methods: learning mobility projects of the Italian organisations within the Program area. Requests submitted to the ISFOL within the Slovenian Program area; the same request, although specular, will be submitted to CMEPIUS. The reference value for measuring the increases will be the 2016 data, which will be measured within the context of the WP3.2.2 activity. The surveys after 2017 will be carried out by the institutional forum instituted by the memorandum of understanding (see .WP3.1).

Objectives and Activities

MAIN OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT

The aim of the project is to strengthen the cooperation between providers of public education services and enterprises in the program area in particular in the area of work-based learning through innovative procedures and uniform standards for the implementation of cross-border mobility. The target situation, which will be established on the basis of the project's expected effects, will enable educational institutions and SMEs (small and medium enterprises) of the program area to interact effectively, successfully participate in learning mobility projects, and jointly set partnerships with actors from other areas.

CURRENT SITUATION OF THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PROJECT (14/12/2018)

So far we have carried out three joint cross-border workshops in the framework of the project: this has strengthened the cooperation between key players in vocational and technical schools and representatives of the economy. The training was completed with full success, as the target indicator was reached and exceeded. In addition, we organized several meetings of experts in the field of vocational and technical education in the partner group, which resulted in the preparation of two comparative analyzes between the countries in the context of mobility and education system. In the framework of the analyzes, the group tasked with finding solutions and tools for cross-border work-based learning presented its findings and in the current phase, the first blueprint of the digital platform, which will be launched in 2019, is being built. In addition, in November we organized three cross-border courses in Nova Gorica, Udine and Sagrado, and also reached the target indicator. We will shortly organize a press conference to sign a protocol n cross-border cooperation between public institutions and stakeholders of vocational and technical education for cross-border practical work-based learning.
