The Early School Workers project at the EfVET Roundtables 2020

EfVET offers European project members the opportunity to disseminate progress, results and products of their projects as a way to valorise good practice outcomes and sustainability.

During the “Roundtables” session project promoters have the opportunity to provide more in-depth information to all interested people and discuss future cooperation opportunities.

During this event ESW partnership will present the main results of the project, namely:

INTELLECTUAL OUTPUT 1 – UTC transferability guidelines

UTCs ( are innovative schools in the UK and their approach seems to be capable of addressing and preventing the Early School Leaving (ESL) problem, as well as the lack of key competences among young people. In these schools knowledge and skills are acquired through the resolution of real problems or projects. Their approaches deliver an innovative training concept, which is able to narrow the gap between knowledge and competences acquired at school and those required by the companies. The possibility to reach these excellent results has been possible thanks to innovative methodologies and by re-thinking spaces, times and learning approaches.

The first Intellectual Output consist of a report on the University Technical Colleges – UTCs and how to transfer the model in other contexts.

The IO1 analyses the following variables:

– Ideal dimensions of schools;
– Organisation of times and spaces;
– How to relate with the companies;
– Standard soft skills PiXL Edge (Leadership, Organisation, Communication, Initiative and Resilience);
– How to realise the PBL didactic model (Problem and Project Based Learning);
– How to personalise the learning process.

INTELLECTUAL OUTPUT 2 – Methodological framework & common tools for developing new curriculum

The partnership designed a methodological framework and created tools useful for the creation of new training paths (curriculum) based on the UTC model. This tool allows to combine the national standards of Italy, Spain and Germany with the innovative elements of the UTCs.
