The general objective of the project is to innovate VET provision in Europe through an intense capacity building action addressed to VET teachers. The specific objectives are: 

  • To create more opportunities for VET organisations to exchange practices and discuss about innovation on a regular basis; 
  • To improve the competences of the VET staff on innovative teaching methodologies; 
  • To raise awareness on the three dimensions of VET excellence. 

The results expected from the project are the following: 

  • Identifying, testing and mainstreaming of a template of transnational conference where VET schools around Europe can meet to exchange practices and work on innovation in VET every year; 
  • Improving competences in VET practitioners on different topics such as Entrepreneurship Education; Social Inclusion; Technology Enabled Learning (TEL). 
  • Finally, new follow-up initiatives are expected to start off as a result of the exchange. 

The kick-off meeting was held online and was initiated by a presentation of the partners’ organisations; the vision behind the project and expected goals were introduced, together with the presentation of the project activities and an explanation of the roles of the partners in each one of them. A part related to administrative procedures, Dissemination & Communication and Quality Plan presentations by EfVET and Uniser followed. 

As in the other similar project INNOVET, in VET IN 3D we saw a great enthusiasm in starting working in its implementation and we are glad that there is visible commitment from all our Members and the other partners.
