Learning by Doing, co-funded by the European Union through the Danube Transnational Programme, is a strategic project, build in such a manner that all key Vocational Education and Training (VET) actors (chambers, regional or national level authorities and multinational companies) could directly participate in the project, representing all 14 countries of the Danube Transnational Programme area.
Developing transnational tools to support long term transition of VET systems and developing strategies describing transition of VET systems, policy recommendations, will ease the transition towards more efficient Work-Based Learning (WBL) schemes and modernization of the WBL systems.
Learning by Doing project aims to improve capacities of all relevant VET actors through reinforcing regional, national and transnational partnerships in order to ease the existing VET systems in the Danube countries, by involving 24 project partners, 11 partners funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), 4 partners supported by the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) and 9 Associated Strategic Partners.
As VET systems have a strongly positive impact on local economies and societies (e.g. easing transition from education to work, boosting youth employment, reducing labour market disparity), most Danube countries have already introduced measures with partial results, although institutional weaknesses, lack of cooperation of VET actors, missing capacities and cultural bottlenecks seriously jeopardise the transition of existing VET systems towards more demand-driven vocational education in the Danube Region.
Thus it aims to develop secondary education and training schemes helping labour mobility and responding to fast economic changes and quickly changing needs of companies, by creating awareness through the VET actors about the operational/socio – economic & cultural challenges to overcome and by promoting VET system as a competitive tool.
Being a strategic project, where the key stakeholders are project partners at the same time, activities can easily tackle the direct target group(stakeholders involved in policymaking process).
The target groups to whom this Project is adressed, are:
- National public Authority
- Education/Trainig Center and School
- Enterprises and SMEs
- Youth, as an indirect target group
