The Survival Skills for Trainers of Apprentices in Initial VET (SUSTAIN VET) Project is a a two-year initiative implemented in the period between October 2020 to September 2022. The project is financed under the KA2 Strategic Partnerships in the field of VET of the Erasmus+ Programme.
The objective of the SUSTAIN VET project is to support company mentors in the planning, design, delivery and assessment of IVET apprenticeship schemes. The project will introduce a didactical approach around which company syllabus is designed and mentorship organized. This approach is called Situation-based didactics. Situated learning basis on the finding that the situated knowledge is predominant over the declarative and sensorimotor/procedural and attitude related knowledge because its activation happens spontaneously. It is the entry door to all other knowledge and is regarded as an appropriate method linking practical
experiences with theory in order to achieve optimal responsiveness of WBL to the labour market needs.
Considering the target groups of the project, trainers of company mentors and company mentors of apprentices, the Partnership will develop innovative intellectual outputs to enhance their skills and competences with user-friendly tools to plan, design and execute training syllabus, monitor apprentices’ progress and provide constructive feedback.
