The CRITICALTHINKING4VET network
Criticalthinking4vet is an european network that is made up of prestigious technology centers that develop cutting-edge projects in a wide variety of fields (biosanitary, smart materials, nanocomponents…) as well as VET Centers. Both sectors collaborate together to create technical and labor training adapted not only to the needs of technology sector but also to the ones of students with obstacles.

From the network we believe that VET technicians have a fundamental role in the development of high technology projects, especially those young people with more obstacles that despite them demonstrate a capacity for improvement, dedication and learning that makes them overcome all their barriers. On the other hand, technology centers can play a fundamental role in these young people, providing them with a new experience that helps them access the labor market and developing fundamental skills for their social, professional and personal future.

The PROJECTS of the network

VET STUDENTS INTO TECHNOLOGY COMPANIES

Project awarded in the 2019 call in the educational field of the ERASMUS + PROGRAM. It obtained the second best rated project in the field of professional training by the Spanish National Agency-SEPIE.

CRITICAL THINKING AS STEP FORWARD FOR A VET STUDENTS

The project, cofunded by E+ PROGRAM and developed between september 2017 and august 2019, created a learning program for vocation educational training, students in order to promote their access to higher education, and a curricular improvement making easier their access to the labour market through new educational methodologies based on critical thinking.
