The project will catalyse industry /education partnerships to develop and deliver technically current and accessible VET, supported by ICT enabled learning which leads to reliable and trusted qualifications, based on robust assessment practices.
The BlueEDU beneficiaries fall in to three main categories; the aquaculture industry, VET sector and learners and can be reached through direct communication approaches and information cascaded by others.
The projects outputs will enable industry to source appropriate VET provision, where it exists, more readily and seek new partnerships with VET providers locally and nationally, in support of staff development.
Vocational education and training sector
The project outputs will inform the VET sector at all levels, including national regulators, VET providers and individual teachers and instructors, regarding the priority areas for development in each country and at European level.
Learners are not a primary beneficiary, but will have access to occupational maps and a transparent inventory of existing European aquaculture courses and qualifications, highlighting qualification equivalencies and career pathways
