The Skills4Work website has gathered together a range of implementation documents, procedures and case-studies from the four participating countries in this project; Germany, Ireland, Northern Ireland and Slovenia. Within the four countries six partners have contributed their knowledge and practices in relation to organising and implementing successful work-based learning programmes.
The partners involved in the project were:
• Germany – The OSZ IMT
• Ireland – City of Dublin Education and Training Board and H2 Learning
• Northern Ireland – South Eastern Regional College (SERC)
• Slovenia – Slovenian Institute for Vocational Education and Training (CPI) & The Solski Centre Vocational School
The Project has provided a professional learning experience for all the project partners, as it has afforded them the opportunity to visit each country and to witness the many inter-connected elements of their WBL programmes. We have gathered their reflections on these visits in a project blog and we have collected a range of relevant documents that capture the processes and procedures each organisation has in place to manage WBL These resources number more than 100 and can be found in the WBL Guidelines section.
The Project has been built around the concept of observing and capturing the WBL practices that exist in the partner organisations and using these as the basis for reflection. In addition to the WBL Guidelines we have also captured 4 case-studies, one per country which explore specific WBL examples in more detail. These case-studies can also be used to facilitate reflection and we have provided an example of how this might be carried out, using an example from Germany, Exploring Case Study 1 .
