Vision and character
One of the areas of the KTP is to build awareness among young people associated with entrepreneurship. Lack of work experience in companies, as well as associated with the lack of appropriate skills and competence is one of the factors of co-creating "gap" in the education system among young people in the European Union. The need to identify and adopt practices that can fill this gap is very important. Partial solution may be a high quality system of education and vocational training, in which the employer can take the active part. The opportunity to to gain experience in the workplace will help young people to find employment by providing them they needed to take the first step into the labor market: among others knowledge, skills and competence.
This is the nature of the project. It is about adaptation of vocational training to the specific needs of employers. The project participants during the study visits will explore education systems in the countries involved in the project. They will visit also the place where young people learn in practice to work in the production. At the end of the project will be create the guide whixh help to implement the principles of the dual system of education in many places, not only in the country. The project, led by KTP, will be realized until August 2018.
