MEETING OF DIRECTORS-GENERAL FOR VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING (DGVT) 4th October – Presentation of ALLVIEW report

The report “Selection of technologies related with Augmented, virtual and Mixed Reality” will be presented during the MEETING OF DIRECTORS-GENERAL FOR VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING (DGVT) organized by the Slovenian presidency of the council of the EU the next 4th of October. Our coordinator CETEM will join the session devoted to: DIGITALISATION OF VET PROVISION AND DIGITAL SKILLS IN VET AND WORK-BASED LEARNING.

There is scope for work-based learning in VET to make more use of digital learning that simulates practical experiences in training provision, for instance through immersive technologies like virtual and augmented reality. In addition, there is also potential to improve the cooperation and dialogue between VET schools and training companies through jointly used digital tools for learning and training, in particular between teachers and in-company trainers. However, it is important to find the optimal balance between real-world and virtual experiences, so that digital tools generate added value. The last proposals of ALLVIEW for the furniture and wood sector in this line will be presented with the aim of inspiring other industrial sectors.

ALLVIEW – Analysis of open-source tools for skill assessment matching under ESCO system. Gaps and needs identified.

The consortium of partners of the ALLVIEW project is glad to announce that the first report of WP1.1 AI-based skills assessment framework – Analysis and evaluation of current open-source tools for skill assessment matching under ESCO system is now available in the download section of our website https://allview.eu

This is a first step of a more complex work under development in the framework of WP1, where the main result will be an open-source software platform (ALLVIEW platform) for broad skills assessment, identifying specific areas in need of development, and offering targeted training to address the defined gaps. The resulting tool will deliver training path recommendations, for workers and enterprises, VET-centre suggestions, enterprise skill needs, learning outcomes, etc…

The partners involved in WP1 have performed this analysis of the state of art in open-source software tools for skill assessment, with the goal of finding gaps and needs to be covered in the ALLVIEW platform. The state of art describes in depth 12 software tools based on 16 features for the ALLVIEW platform requirements.

The existing tools studied cover some of the requirements set for the ALLVIEW platform, but none of those platforms covers all of them. One of the most important features is to integrate the ESCO classification, the European reference on skills, occupations, and professional profiles.

To add extra value to the analysis, the opinion of stakeholders and final users of the ALLVIEW platform have been collected through a set of questionnaires. The analysis of the responses have reinforced the gaps and needs identified.

A sustainability and exploitation plan, for the future ALLVIEW platform, is also included, in which we explain how the consortium will ensure its continuity after the end of the project.
Finally, the main conclusions will be used as input for the next tasks in WP1.

ALLVIEW – A collection of Circular Economy policies in Europe

The consortium of partners of the ALLVIEW project is glad to announce that the first report of the WP4. T1 – Identification of Regional/National policies about CSR is now available in the download section of our website Allview.eu

The main objective of this task is to analyse the status of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in the furniture and wood sector in the EU. The partner consortium has analysed the legislative tools that regulate CSR in various European countries. The research took into consideration the three pillars of CSR: sustainability, inclusivity and accessibility.

This first document is the first step within a more complex and elaborate work. Specifically, three different reports will be developed which have CSR in the wood and furniture sector as their main topic.

The first report is now available and concerns CSR in relation to waste prevention and Circular Economy. The following two documents will be on the topics of migrants and refugees and on the inclusion of people with disabilities in the labour market and in education and training.

Thanks to this research, the partners’ consortium wants to enhance the awareness regarding CSR at a European level, considering not only the sustainable aspects regarding the environmental topics, but also inclusivity and accessibility aspects, addressed to a wider range of people with fewer opportunities: migrants, disabled people and people with social disadvantages in general.

The document here presented is in an English version. The translated versions German, Italian, Spanish, Poland, Slovenian and Dutch will be available soon.
