Digital competences for adaptive, flexible and inclusive VET


Partnerships for Digital Education Readiness

The analysis answer to the questions that have not previously been well-answered : what does it feel like to be someone who feels left behind by the education system? What are the main factors that constrain engagement in the digital world?

Transferability Toolkit

Transferability Toolkit aimed at policy-makers, businesses, training providers and VET practitioners to support the replication, adaptation and sustainability of FLEXI-COMP.

The Toolkit approach is based on ‘Ten Steps to Transferability’ each of which takes the reader through the process of developing and customizing their local FLEXI-COMP programme.

The FLEXI-COMP Core Training Programme is an online programme consisting of complementary and integrated units that mirror the Competence Framework.

Each unit include digital educational resources, using audio and video formats, text format….
