IF YOU ARE A TECHNOLOGICAL CENTER THAT WANTS TO WELCOME VET STUDENTS

VET students with fewer opportunities are enthusiastic and enterprising people, capable of providing enthusiasm and effort when they are offered a real opportunity to overcome their barriers.
Despite the difficulties and deficiencies they may have, they represent an important asset capable of providing dynamism to their technological center or technology-based company.

In order to help you discover the possibilities and facilitate the participation of Vet students in your technology center we offer:

METHODOLOGICAL GUIDE FOR HIGH TECH CENTERS TO HOST VET STUDENT INTERNSHIPS

This document sets the basis for sustainability and reproducibility of the internships in high technology private and public centres, to which the Chemistry branch (Technician in Laboratory Operations or Technician in Chemistry Plant, or their equivalents in other countries) VET students with fewer opportunities can access.

The methodological guide shows the companies and research centers how the students learn and develop typical functions from the positions within the high technology projects, and at the same time they realize how the productive processes are organized. It include advises, recommendations, methodologies to work with VET students and pedagogical approaching to prepare the company to integrate a VET student in their production lines.

A PROGRAM FOR TRAINING YOUR VET STUDENTS IN HIGH TECHNOLOGY CENTERS (FCT)

The implementation of this methodological proposals in your technological centers allow your center to host VET, participating in a high performance VET internship system in a network of Technology-Based Research Centers and Companies. This internship system allows your a significant increase in the employability of participating students by providing them with a fundamental experience in the highly demanding work environment and enhancing the value of their curriculum, and developing in your VET students scientific and educational competencies.

These program is based in:

VET CENTRES NETWORK

This internship system involves a network of VET Centers in marginalized areas around Europe:

Actually the next VET centers participate in the network:

1 ο ΕΠΑΓΓΕΛΜΑΤΙΚΟ ΛΥΚΕΙΟ ΚΑΤΩ ΑΧΑΪΑΣ

The Centre for Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering (CBIT) is a research centre of the UPV aimed at research on the development, manufacturing, physical and biological characterization of biomaterials for specific applications in regenerative medicine, as well as the formation of the aforesaid area. It focuses on the advance in the knowledge of the combined use of biomaterials with cells and biochemical and physical factors in order to recover and regenerate tissues and their biological function after an injury or pathology.

1st Epagelmatiko Lykeio Kato Achaias is the first organization in Greece which applies the Ecvet system in its mobility projects. Our last three mobility projects have been based on the ECVET system. That means that we are used to planning our projects focusing on specific learning outcomes that are in close connection with the specific educational and professional needs of the participants. In this way, we target the vocational and personal development of the participants.

A VERY INNOVATIVE METHODOLOGY IS APPLIED

A very innovative methodology is applied. It has been created specifically for this purpose, based on collaborative work and immersion of students in professional training internships in very innovative environments: research groups of scientific or technological excellence and technology-based companies.

The essential teaching methodology in these internships is based on critical thinking and overcoming obstacles. It is about showing students that progress in knowledge and technology is associated with a critical spirit, which calls into question any argument or explanation of an observed phenomenon, regardless from whom it comes, until one finds a satisfactory explanation through shared effort.

REQUIREMENTS FOR THE STUDENT´S INTERNSHIP

We consider that these internships in companies, in the vast majority of cases the first work experience of VET students, they must not only develop their work skills and critical thinking, but  the internship must be a first real insertion in the market of work that allows them to experience full emancipation.

That is why the practices of VET students will be subject to:

o The VET student must make a clearly defined working day committing during the work schedule to strive and take responsibility for the tasks in charge which must be consistent with their degree and be within their reach.

o The student will receive some pocket money, equatable with a fair salary for his working day that will be in any case equal to the minimum salary of the host country. In addition to the salary, the student will receive free accommodation with high quality standards.

o The student will have mobility costs included in the first trip  to the workplace, as well as the last trip back to their country of origin.

o The student will have an IKASIA TECHNOLOGIES tutor who will advise and assist the student in their stay in the country of destination, as well as a tutor in the company that will help and supervise their work in the workplace.

o The student will benefit from the work calendar established for the host company.

o The student must attend the previous training course, as well as collaborate in additional training activities (final evaluation, collaborative sessions between internship students, language training)
