From a rookie to an expert – International paths for VET staff, REX VET
Multicultural working life and the international labor market requires international skills and competences. Teachers in VET need to have international skills in order to be able to guide the students. Our project responds to the national priority of strategic partnerships projects in Finland, too. We will develop the skills and competences of teachers as a part of continuous professional development.
Our objectives are:
to increase the ownership of internationalization activities within the organization and engage more teachers andstaff members in such activities. Engaging more teachers in international activities is crucial in order to increasethe attention to the European context, develop new curriculum planning process and new curriculum models andhelp to widen cultural understanding among students.
to develop and recognize the skills and competences that are needed in the global world and internationalizationof education from “a rookie to an expert”.
to promote staff development in terms of internationalization skills such as more knowledge about the EU, better understanding of other VET systems, language and managerial skills and updating the skills needed to work in a multi-cultural environment.
to promote the link between international activities and the strategy and development of the organization andstaff professional development.
