B.COMP – Creating more inclusive and supportive work-based learning environments for low-skilled learners by training work-readiness skills through Transformative Learning
For many young people, a work-based learning (WBL) opportunity as part of a Vocational education and training (VET) programme is their first experience in the world of work. Finding a welcoming and supportive environment, with good learning opportunities, can be very motivating and contribute to attaining a qualification and/or securing a work opportunity. However, WBL can also be discouraging and lead to dropout when learners’ expectations are not met, or due to a lack of work-based skills.
VET Teachers and In-Company Trainers, with the right tools, will be able to develop their learners’ skills, motivating them to engage positively with the work-based learning experience, leading to brighter outcomes, increased confidence, the acquisition of a qualification and potential job opportunities.
Therefore, developing young peoples’ work and employability skills to enhance success is recommended by combining and developing a broad spectrum of interpersonal and behavioural competences, such as working independently, being able to collaborate as a team, problem-solving, reasoned decision-making, creativity, flexibility, critical thinking and communication skills.
The aim of the B.COMP project is to create more inclusive and supportive WBL environments for low-skilled learners by training VET Teachers and In-Company Trainers in work-readiness skills (WRS) for WBL through Transformative Learning.
The B.COMP Project will consist of the following Project Results:
Learning Units Plan
Instructional Web App
Recommendations for skills validation, certification and accreditation
