The kick off meeting for the PEAL project was held in Randers, Denmark on 2nd – 3rd November, hosted by Tradium. This project was developed in response to an ever expanding eCommerce industry and a widening skills gap identified by employers across Europe.
During the meeting coordinators and eCommerce teachers from 6 different VET institutions in 5 different countries were able to get to know each other and begin the exchange of good practices in eCommerce teaching.
Over the next couple of years, the PEAL project aims:
- To provide partner schools with the knowledge and inspiration necessary to train the workforce of tomorrow and deal with the associated challenges of eCommerce.
- To provide students of partner schools the opportunity to attend work placement with a variety of employers across Europe, to collaborate and apply their knowledge on real eCommerce business problems.
