DESCRIPTION AND METHODOLOGIES
The recent ‘refugee crisis’ is a challenge for European countries. The integration of the refugees who are eligible to stay is one goal of the European refugee policy. One of the promising factors for successful integration is the Vocational Education and Training (VET). On the practitioner level, various measures have been taken to integrate refugees through VET, but the exchange of information and experiences between the actors barely exists. Usually, different practitioners are confronted with similar challenges, but since they act independently to share knowledge that allows learning through others’ experience is difficult.
In the present project "Indicators of Good VET practice for refugees“, experiences made by practitioners in four European countries (Italy, Denmark, Austria and Germany) are made available and are evaluated. The project aims to generate quality indicators for successful training programmes in the field of VET. Hard and soft indicators which support the integration of refugees will be revealed. These indicators will be transformed into a web-based analyse-tool. This tool will be available at the national and international project homepages and helps practitioners to analyse their own VET programmes for the integration of refugees.
RESULTS AND IMPACT
The results will be presented at multiplier events and by wide distribution campaign. Due to the ongoing offer to analyse VET programmes by the analyse-tool even after the end of this project and due to the option to make further VET programmes public as best-practices, the sustainability of the project is already put in integrative.
