Dual MOB project started in October 2017 with the aim of promoting learning periods abroad for 300 Italian students attending VET courses that adopt Work Based Learning methodologies. The project will last 2 years and involves 9 Italian partners and 20 partners from 6 European Countries.
ENAC – Ente Nazionale Canossiano (Italian Canossian Association) is the project leader of Dual MOB, a project that will give students the chance to develop technical competences and soft skills through WBL experiences abroad. These mobilities will be carried out during VET qualification paths with the final aim of assessing and validating the learning outcomes acquired during the mobility so as to facilitate future inclusion of the young participants in the labour market or to continue their studies.
Indeed, WBL and transnational mobility experiences are important to (re)motivate VET learners (preventing early school leaving) and to provide them with the competences required by the companies.
The project will involve 300 students (1/3 suffering from economic/social/cultural disadvantage) enrolled in VET courses in one of the 150 VET Centres run by the Consortium Members in 18 Italian Regions.
The project has a wide sectorial coverage too. The sectors in which the students will have the chance to take their internship are the following:
- Agribusiness (Bakery and Pastry; Agriculture)
- Arts and Crafts (Fashion, Wood)
- Mechanic and Construction (Mechanics, Masonry, Electric, Electronic, Thermo-hydraulic)
- Administrative, Selling
- Tourism and Catering
- Personal Service (Beauty and Hairdressing)
Furthermore, the partnership involves 20 partners from 6 different countries (Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Spain, United Kingdom) offering 2 different types of Transnational Mobility:
- 3-4 weeks internships in a company abroad;
- 3-4 weeks in a VET centre abroad, with periods spent in company or other context.
The Learning Outcomes will be valorised and recognized through the ECVET system, taking advantage of the experience and the ECVET tools developed during the GORES project.
