8th June 2020
Last 3rd and 4th of June 2020, EfVET launched the first Online Thematic Team Event of this year on Internationalisation & Learning Mobility (Int@LM). The days were organised in parallel workshops on the promotion of Teachers Trainers and Coaches and Athletes, as well as consequences and initiatives for VET in light of the Covid-19 situation.
The event gathered way more than 120 attendees from 30 countries and had a great success and active participation among EfVET members.
The online webinar was introduced by the coordinators of the Thematic Team on Int@LM, Mr Andrea Lombardi and Mr André Schoonhoven from two EfVET Members, respectively from Uniser (Italy) and Da Vinci College (The Netherlands), who welcomed participants wishing all of them a fruitful work.
During the two days, discussions were organised in parallel sessions: workshops for promoting Teachers Trainers, and Coaches and Athletes, and the Covid-19 situation, with its consequences and initiatives for VET, and sustainable future for learning mobility. All the sessions offered different peer learning opportunities, allowing a motivating exchange of ideas.
The successful event was also a great opportunity to present INTERVET Western Balkans, a 3-year pilot project for the internationalisation of vocational education and training systems in Western Balkans, which is very much related to the subject of Thematic Team Int@LM.
As the CEO of Uniser, coordinator of the project, and EfVET Member, one of the project partners, Mr Andrea Lombardi presented more in depth the connection of the main aims and objectives of the project INTERVET Western Balkans. He also took the opportunity to provide a brief overview of all countries where it is possible to apply to Pilot mobily WB calls and to have the chance to experience an internship abroad.
The partners of INTERVET Western Balkans are very enthusiastic that the project could be presented to all EfVET members in the Thematic Team Event on Internationalisation & Learning Mobility, in order to have an even wider coverage in Europe and beyond.
