Intellectual Output 3: Didactic material production for Green economy pilot training

Implementation Period: 01/01/2022 – 31/08/2022

The pandemic and economic crisis has accelerated structural change within many sectors. However, vocational education and training (VET) systems are being uniquely impacted, not only in relation to how they provide VET in the context of current social distancing and travel restrictions, but also in terms of how they are being forced to anticipate and adapt to a most likely significantly changed labour market in the coming months and years. 

Stepping on the results from the previous IOs, IO3 -which is currently being implemented- focuses on the green jobs and their positive impact on the post pandemic recovery period. The ILO defines ‘green jobs’ as work in agriculture, industry, services and administration that contributes to preserving or restoring the quality of the environment while also meeting requirements of decent work: adequate wages, safe conditions, workers’ rights, social dialogue and social protection. For this reason, the project aims at connecting the digital skills for VET educators with the green economy aspects with the scope of making the labour market and the economy more environmentally-friendly and respectful of its resources. 

The main aim of the IO3 is to identify green educational topics in order to provide the VET educators with suitable e-tools enabling them to respond to the demands expressed by modern businesses. At the same time, the whole society and economy will benefit from the transition to sustainable, smart and inclusive growth while taking into account EU policies.
