About the project

Erasmus+ project “Testing New Approaches to Training VET and Workplace Tutors for Work Based Learning” (TTT4WBL), grant agreement No. 2016-2927/005-001, supports an innovative approach – tandem training – for the training of trainers in work-based learning (WBL) of the Baltic countries - Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.
A common competence profile of WBL trainers in the Baltics will promote a common Baltic vision while respecting the needs of each particular country in developing the training porgrams for WBL trainers.

The project will develop and pilot a sample training program for in-company and vocational education and training (VET) institutions’ trainers.
At a later stage each Baltic country will develop its own training program in relation to the national priorities, legal framework and the interests and opinions of involved stakeholders in the particular country and based on a common agreed competence profile of a WBL trainer.

A Finnish research institute is providing a methodological support based on the analysis of the opinions of involved stakeholders from all the Baltic countries.
The project innovation is the tandem training approach with an added value – sharing and co-creation of knowledge based on the expertise of participants with different professional background in VET institutions and companies.

Project aim is to develop the most suited and optimal approaches for ensuring high level vocational teachers and trainers in compliance with the modern labour market requirements.
