The aim of the project is to support in-depth analysis of how key competences are integrated and promoted in vocational education and training (VET). Two tasks have been performed as part of the study.
The first task was to complete three qualification reports for vocational education and training programmes. One focuses on the programme to become a restaurant operations specialist; one on the programme to become a Hand arc welder and Arc Welder in Welding with Tungsten Electrode in the Inert Gas Environment; and one on the programme for becoming a bricklayer and restoration Assistant. During the first task were organised three focus groups with different vocational schools.
The aim of the national case study was to identify good practices for solutions that would improve the implementation of the Guidelines for Information Society Development 2014-2020 (“the policy”) in Latvia, as regards digital skills of initial vocational education teachers. This task includes analysis of (1) policy objectives related to the implementation of the relevant key competence in IVET; (2) the main activity/policy actions addressing the objective(s); (3) governance levels and stakeholders involved; (4) areas where there was difficulty in implementing the key competence, or where implementation did not occur; (5) reason(s) of failure and (6) strategies applied for treating and solving the difficulties. Information acquired during the case study was complemented by 3 interviews.
