Training through Virtual Reality: Project for competence development in public transport

Our German network partner VET training centre of the Leipzig public transport company (LAB)  coordinates the Erasmus+ project “Competence+: A Blended Learning Programme for Competence Development Beyond Pure Professional Skills”.

The aim of the project is to create an advanced training platform that both trainees and employees in public transport can use to further their education in the areas of sustainability, conflict and stress management, and moral courage. For this purpose, a course concept is being created that includes both eLearning and classroom training. A special feature of Competence+ is that virtual reality scenarios are created that enable learners to directly apply and test their newly acquired competences and skills.

The project also includes an application manual for instructors and trainers who want to use or adapt Competence+ themselves. Together with the transport operators Reus Mobilitat (Spain) and Straeto (Iceland), LAB (Germany) will bring the direct public transport perspective to the project, while Wisamar (Germany), DomSpain (Spain), Virsabi (Denmark) and StandoutEducation (Cyprus) will contribute their expertise in vocational training projects. The project runs from November 2020 to April 2023.
