GreenVETnet is an EU funded project, implemented from 2022 to 2023, that aims on the integration of sustainability aspects in VET by enhancing the competences of staff involved in VET on sustainable development. One of the key questions is how, practically, education and training, and skills can develop and support the green transition. The project focuses on identifying core green skills that should be incorporated in VET programmes. The specific objectives of the project are to: Identify a set of core green skills that should be incorporated in VET programmes Upskill the VET educators by facilitating learning opportunities in various sustainability-relevant and green forward-looking fields, coming with some of the most significant opportunities for the growth of green jobs in support of sustainable development Facilitate an inventory of good practices and knowledge on promoting and integrating sustainable development aspects in all learning and teaching and across all operations of European VET centres Create a platform for peer learning, exchange of experiences and know-how Identify best practices on how VET can act as a bridge to the sustainable development of working life and support the green transition. The project establishes a methodology for educators’ skills training in some of the key sectors that come with the greatest opportunity for growth of green jobs. Key sectors are hospitality management and tourism, business and administration, logistics/transport and construction sector with the goal to enhance the VET educator’s skills and knowledge on sustainability potentials of their own field. In-depth studying of green skills and building future will are emphasised in Learning, Teaching and Training Activites (LTTAs) of the key sectors end invited VET teachers or staff. The main results of the project include the development of a Green skills toolkit which is a peer learning platform where the partners of GreenVETnet, collect best ideas that were shared in Learning, Teaching and Training activities, in sectoral workshops. The sectoral workshops covered the topics of tourism & hospitality, logistics & transport, business education and finally energy efficient construction.
