ENNE Project started in 2019 and the first face-to-face meeting (KoM) was organized in Foligno, Italy by the project coordinator at EGInA Srl.
During the KoM in Foligno, all Partners – that are: EGInA for Italy, Belerasm for Belgium, WISAMAR for Germany, ECQ for Bulgary and ARTS&SKILLS for Portugal – discussed all the strategies, opportunities and next steps to be implemented in the future.
ENNE Project offers great opportunities for Students, Teachers and other Stakeholders to be involved in. The main mission is to create mobility and good connections in terms of VET (Vocal Education Training).
What have ENNE Partners conceived? They seized the need of Europe and put into practice their knowledge, based also on education and training experiences.
The speed at which the society moves requires continuous adjustments and new tools to cope with the demand of cooperation and improve VET quality and attractiveness.
How do we understand this change? Providing European citizens with the necessary skills to better meet the rapidly changing needs of labour markets. Following the guidelines of Copenhagen Declaration in 2002, The Bruges Communiqué 2011-2020 and according to the 2015 Riga Conclusions on VET and to the medium Term of Deliverables for 2015-2020, VET providers should:
- Promote work-based learning in all its forms;
- Develop quality assurance mechanisms in VET in line with the EQAVET recommendation. Transnational mobility for VET to acquire new skills is one of the fundamental ways through which individuals can strengthen their employability as well as their personal development (European Commission 2009).
The ENNE Project objectives derives from the cooperation among project partners who are currently implementing an Erasmus+ KA2 project in the field of VET: INTOQUALITY – Association of Quality Intermediary Organizations Fostering Mobility in Europe – starts from the idea that the internationalization strategy for VET providers contributes to the flexibility and employability of the European labour force.
In each country ENNE Project has already identified 5 VET providers (mostly VET schools EQF4) representing the initial core of the National Networks involved as associated partners and they have already committed themselves to establishing the network if the project will be selected for funding.
