International project "Vetskilling" makes good progress in its educational development

Updated: Mar 23

In a recent milestone for the Erasmus+ project "Vetskilling," five European schools have collaborated to develop teaching materials aimed at improving the generic skills of technical students. This initiative, highlighting the power of international cooperation, aims to better prepare students for the challenges of the modern labor market by placing a strong emphasis on communication, teamwork, leadership, and problem-solving abilities.

The project meeting  from March 20 to March 22, 2024, organized by CIFP URSURBIL LHII, a technical school from basque country, played a crucial role in bringing together the diverse expertise of the participating schools.

During this meeting, representatives from each school shared their knowledge and insights, which led to the creation of a series of new ideas for accessible digital learning resources.

Supported by the European Union's Erasmus+ program, the "Vetskilling" project illustrates the commitment to educational quality and the promotion of European integration and cultural understanding. By focusing on generic skills, the project acknowledges the need for technical students to possess strong interpersonal skills alongside their technical expertise. This is essential at a time when the technical sector is facing complex challenges, such as the energy transition and sustainable development.

The responses from the participating schools are unanimously positive. "We are proud of the progress we have made together. This project not only prepares our students for the technical challenges of the future but has also laid a strong foundation for ongoing cooperation between our institutions," said one of the project leaders.

The "Vetskilling" project serves as a model for the power of collective effort and innovation in education. By emphasizing the development of generic skills, it prepares the next generation of engineers and technicians to demonstrate leadership in their field and to contribute effectively to society.

The next meeting of the project - Sept. 16 to Sept. 20, 2024 - will be in the Netherlands and will be organized by Da Vinci College in Dordrecht. It promises to be an interesting meeting where teachers and students will work together.
