EU’s EPALE adds VEThealth project to resource kit

The European Union’s Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe (EPALE) recently added the training project VEThealth, developed by SGM Educational Solutions and brainshuttle™ Spain, to the second edition of their resource kit.

EPALE’s resource kit is a new format, which explores resources available to professionals who are looking to learn new skills and to further their expertise. Each resource kit focuses on a different topic. Items within these resource kits can be considered essentials and showcase projects in their field.

This issue’s topic focuses on “Skills Development”. One of the projects highlighted in the kit is VEThealth: A project aimed at nurturing and improving vocational education and training (VET) in the field of healthcare.

Financed by the Erasmus+ program of the EU, it was developed and implemented by SGM and brainshuttle™ from Tenerife, Spain in cooperation with the Malta College of Arts, Science & Technology (MCAST) and the Universidad de La Laguna.

VEThealth is based on four main objectives:

  • Skilling, reskilling and upskilling participants through digitalized learning
  • Increasing work experience opportunities and subsequent validation of participants
  • Validating non-formal and informal knowledge and competences through electronic accreditation of prior experiential learning
  • Expanding functional skills of participants broadening the mobility options and communication potential
