This TOTVET Training Model aims to increase the professional competences of tutors and VET teachers and empower them to deliver a quality VET training in work based learning and dual training.
It is addressed to professionals who provide VET training in workplace environments to apprentices and young students in work placements, such as :
(a) skilled workers who oversee practical training of students in the workplace,
workplace tutors, mentors and supervisors;
(b) qualified trainers of apprentices or learners in alternance schemes;
(c) teachers and/or trainers conducting practical classes in VET schools.
(d) trainers who perform training of teachers/trainers tasks.
The Model is based on the competences identified by the TOTVET partners needed by VET trainers and teachers in work based learning and dual training.
The Model provided the framework for building and delivery of the Training Curriculum for the Massive Open Online Course “Preparing Tutors for Work Based Learning”.
