Needs Mapping on the VET

In order to identify the realities in the labor field for the VET at the end of the school cycle, as well as the true needs of the employers regarding she skills that a VET must have, the partnership will develop an in-depth study on those issues – a detailed analysis on employment skills needed in VET as well as in other business sectors in Europe and the partnership countries (RO, IT, CY, PT)

For VET Educators, the output will provide a detailed analysis that will support them in planning their teaching methods among their students and apprentices, offering them a useful tool in understanding the skills required by the employers from their graduates or apprentices. For VET learners, this mapping will provide an easy to use schematic of the soft skills required from them by their potential employers, enabling them to seek to obtain those skill until the moment of their employment.

The Needs Mapping of the VET –  a triple approach to the employment needs of the VET:
