TRAINING VET STUDENTS WITH OBSTACLES INTO INNOVATIVE DIGITAL METHODS OF REMOTE WORKING AND ELEARNING CREATED FROM COVID-19

VIRTUAL INTERNSHIPS IN TECH CENTERS
The severe COVID-19 pandemic has caused dire health, economic, social, and political consequences in the short and medium term. After coronavirus, changes to the workplace and education are going to be significant. The lines of work established by the different European governments advocate decisively on teleworking, but this requires completely new skills from the worker, for which they have not been trained: initiative, responsibility, self-management... especially in the technology sector where responsibility and demand is much greater.

In the educational field, measures are being structured to promote virtual learning, especially in the field of Vocational Training, facilitating combined and virtual mobility as an alternative to on-site learning, as response mechanisms to new waves of COVID-19, but also as learning mechanism for the new work environment that is expected to be established in the future.

These measures, however, are not easy to implement and require creating new tools, or adapting existing ones to totally new methodologies to which neither companies nor students and teachers are used to. This is especially important in a sector as dynamic and complex as technology, and more so when it directly impacts young persons in a situation of exclusion.

These VET students find even more barriers in situations like the one we are living, which make it difficult for them to participate in innovative internships that require specific equipment and training.

This is why we propose to create an effective mechanism to carry out virtual internships in high-tech centers, specifically focused on students at risk of exclusion, and with the objective of training their critical and scientific thinking and the job culture and responsibility necessary for teleworking.

OBJECTIVES & BENEFICIARIES

The main beneficiaries of this project will be VET students at risk of exclusion from especially disadvantaged areas. This project will contribute to your job training by adapting it to the post-COVID-19 reality.

INTELLECTUAL OUTPUTS

DIGITAL COURSE

O2: DIGITAL COURSE: ELEARNING SIMULATION ENVIROMENT IN TECH CENTERS
It will consist of a digital course, focused on VET students with obstacles, with the aim of training them with all the knowledge and skills required to successfully carry out virtual internships. This course, based on self-learning, will make it possible to fill the deficiencies inherent to virtual work mobility for both the VET student (difficulty in participating, barriers to integration into work teams, frustration, tension and unease, as well as a feeling of feeling little supported) and for the host technology company (having to invest a lot of time in training the student, few results and little effectiveness in their work).

METHODOLOGICAL GUIDE

O1: METHODOLOGICAL GUIDE: THE VIRTUAL INTERNSHIPS IN TECH CENTERS
This guide, aimed at teachers of VET centers and tutors of technology companies, is focused on offering all the information, protocols, documentation and control instruments that technology companies and VET centers require to implement innovative and effective virtual practices that do not require large investments or seasonal costs, as well as adapted to the requirements of telework and the economic, social and cultural obstacles faced by the VET students benefiting from this project.
