Building on previous successful workshops we invite you to participate in our multiplier event on Sept 20th, 2018:
“Extending the scope: Authentic learning and Career Counseling and Guidance in Higher Education”
On September 20, 2018 Skill Up Project partners would like to welcome you to share their experiences and project results, but specifically also to discuss on new methods and tools to support transitions from higher education to work, authentic learning approaches in Higher Education and e-counselling among different topics of interest. The event will count on a keynote speech and some parallel sessions devoted to a more specific topic on learning scenarios and how to support graduates make successful transitions from education to the labour market.
ERASMUS+ Skill Up Project Matching graduates; skills and labour world demands through authentic learning scenarios is a European strategic partnership aimed at strengthening ties
between European higher education and VET curricula and the labour world through authentic learning scenarios and career counselling and guidance. The purpose of the project is to promote the employability of new graduates, which is linked to the current priority of Europe 2020 strategies. The project is shaping the prerequisites for developing innovative teaching methods and authentic learning approaches, increasing cooperation between education and the labour market and spreading a replicable process in Europe that corresponds to the labour market competence requirements.
The official language of the event will be English, but there will also be parallel sessions in Swedish. Click here for registration.
