DigMyVET - Digital Strategies for VET Centres

Realisation: 2021–2023

Many VET organizations and their teachers did not feel well prepared for online learning when Covid-19 struck Europe. The pandemic has had a greater impact on VET teachers as many VET courses focuses on work-based learning, which cannot be transferred as easily to an online contact as academic learning.

The main concerns for VET teachers and trainers regarding distance learning are the use of equipment / reliability of internet connection, their own lack of digital skills / data protection.

For learners, there is no digital inclusion without social inclusion, marginalised and vulnerable learners are less likely to be involved in distance learning, which in turn, increases their chances of dropping out of VET.

It was raised that it might be difficult to motivate VET teachers involved in work-based learning into digital competence development earlier, however after Covid-19 this attitude may have now changed as digital learning has become a new normal.

Objectives of the DigMyVET project are to facilitate European VET centres to embed digital technologies into teaching, learning and assessment and provide VET centres with bespoke analysis and insight to support learners, teachers and training in adapting online learning.
