STEP 3 is an answer to the challenges related to the rapid transition to new forms of e training in the VET environment. The main aim of the STEP 3 Project is to support digital education readiness, delivering 30 innovative, tailored e-learning modules in the form of OER for the upskilling of VET teachers and trainers.
Defining vocational education and training (VET) strategies for the future often happens in turbulent times. The COVID-19 pandemic created a new economic crisis and increased social inequalities. We should not forget that it had a damaging effect on VET students, learners, teachers and trainers, on companies and apprentices, and on the workers. The pandemic is not over, yet already millions of workers lost their jobs who will need to be reskilled and upskilled for green and digital transition in the labour market. We still do not know how many VET learners dropped out and will be part of a lost generation. We cannot afford that.
