Starting in November 2018 and lasting 2 and half years, the project has a diversified consortium with partners from Portugal, Spain, Czech Republic and Poland.
MAKE YOUR WAY project intends to develop relevant collaborations to open further opportunities for young VET students to apply knowledge in practical, “hands-on”, and “real life” workplace situations, at the same trying to enhance their entrepreneurial attitudes, in particular by working in LABs.
The project takes benefit of the concept of “Fab labs”, or LAB, a small-scale workshop offering digital fabrication, proven to boost innovation and entrepreneurship, as they are platform for learning and innovation: a place to play, to create, to learn, to mentor, to invent. Furthermore, Make Your Way intends to contribute to the continuous professional development of VET teachers, trainers and mentors in both school and work-based settings, with a focus on developing effective digital, open and innovative education and pedagogies, by developing materials that can help those professionals assist young VET learners in taking the most benefit from using LABs and from other WBL solutions, as well as spreading the concept of LABs and promoting their closer collaborations with the VET system.
