It has been a project that aims to contribute to alleviating the needs detected by the experts from all the participating countries, especially by promoting VET education directly linked to emerging professional sectors after the pandemic, such as the technology sector, and to the research projects that these they perform. To this end, the entities have created an innovative method of education (BEING A PART OF IT METHODOLOGY) and tools (TECHVETLAB SOFTWARE) in the VET education where the VET classroom becomes a virtual department of the technology company, developing important parts of the research projects of interest to the company and training students with obstacles in processes and transversal competences that interest them and that favor their hiring.

TECHVETLAB has generated learning in the workplace from the classroom, which alleviated the difficulty of access to Dual VET or internships for many students with obstacles, and allowed VET students with fewer opportunities to learn in demanding environments and be co-participants in research projects pointers.

This project responded to the needs raised by European and international institutions to generate new VET graduates capable not only of adapting to the reality of the post-COVID-19 labor market, but of being fundamental agents in the European reconstruction after it, focusing especially in the students who will have the most difficulty in achieving it, those with economic, social and cultural barriers from segregated environments.


The main beneficiaries of this project have been VET students with obstacles, together with VET teachers, VET educational centers and technology companies.


This project have included a set of transnational meetings, both virtual and face-to-face, as well as certain activities for the development of the outpus, among others.


This project have included the development of 3 high-quality main results along with other results, such as a guide to success stories or a guide for certification.


Visibility and dissemination of the project and its results, as well as the E+ Programme, have been important to achieve a positive impact and the implementation of the results.


Evaluation is a very important factor to guarantee the quality and impact of the project and its results.


During this project, we carried out pilot test to test the main results.



This guide defines the BEING A PART OF IT METHODOLOGY and provides all the necessary guidelines to implement it in the VET classroom, through a global adaptation of classroom planning, the implementation of virtual network work routines with the company and the use of tools that equate the classroom with the company, allowing students as a whole to develop critical parts within cutting-edge innovation projects.


A completely free and innovative educational management software compatible with that used by technology companies to control operational and productive processes, but directly adapted to the characteristics and educational needs of VET students. There are many project management and coordination software that can be found in the market for companies, but they are not adapted to the education of Vocational Training students, who require the necessary tools to acquire knowledge and skills for their future access to the labor market.


A software that integrates extensive databases that include, at European level, centers and companies in this sector interested in hosting mobility of VET students with fewer opportunities. It is a tool that allows leading technology companies to be put in contact with vocational training centers with high levels of students with obstacles to facilitate joint participation in research projects, internships in international companies and the employability of students with obstacles. All this with the aim of promoting the inclusion and employability of these students.



My experience of participating as an instructor-coordinator of the pilot test was extremely interesting and pleasant for me. At first, I saw it as a challenge, as a problem that we had to solve with the students, to work as if we were professionals in an IT company and using specialized project management software, to finally make a website that communicates with the 3D printer. The use and familiarization with the project management software was a very important experience for the students as such environments are used in large companies and will be an additional qualification for them when they find themselves in the professional field. The most gratifying thing is that the students responded with great interest and understood its importance, a fact that is also reflected in the texts they wrote at the end expressing their opinion about the project. Thanks for the nice collaboration

The construction of the page and the connecting with a 3d printer was a challenge for me and the students. The students showed great interest from the beginning. The project developed smoothly because the goals we set were few, appropriate and easy. The students participated enthusiastically and worked individually and as a team to complete the project with very little help from us. They engaged in the activities without difficulty and at the end of the hour we commented on what they could improve. The point they found difficult but more interesting was the connection the button to the 3d printer. In conclusion, both I and the students were pleased and satisfied with the achievement of the goals and we are waiting for the next project.

This project was ok for me because it was just different from all the different projects I’ve done in the past that involve computer studies and I have to say it’s a better because how it keeps getting a bit fun because how it’s starting to be … and more structured. Also I would love to visit you one time and it would be real nice if you gave us more projects because they are more enjoyable than the one we are doing at school.

My experience was exciting. I like to say that this project make my knowledge better

Nikolaidis Panagiotis

Student – 1st EPAL Kato Achaias

The project began with enthusiasm and the idea of overcoming obstacles, as it has been. The idea of organizing the different points of a project by means of a computer program undoubtedly catches the attention of the student and motivates them in its development. If we add to this the fact that they have always kept in mind that the results were received by a Portuguese company, it adds an even greater incentive.
