Preparing to go abroad

Preparing to go abroad – online Toolkit for VET (KA202-2015-009)

Project description

The aim of the project is to produce an online toolkit, XchangeMe, for students and teachers who are planning to have an exchange period abroad.  The main target is to facilitate the students' and teachers' preparation process for the exchange periods and to ease the actual internship and job-shadowing periods abroad.

The toolkit will include obligatory documents and examples for exchange periods following the ECVET principles and good practices in each partner country.  The toolkit will also give ideas for innovative learning methods such as peer-learning, drama, individual learning pathways and ways to improve foreign language skills. The toolkit provides cultural and professional information and practical hints for students and teachers for their stay abroad. 

Target group

Social and health care students and teachers as well as working life representatives
