#iLearn Mobility and Training for Apprentices 2018 - 2020
The project sets up, tests and releases an usable, comprehensive, user-friendly and innovative digital tool used by apprentices, in-company and school tutors and employers to set up, monitor and evaluate the apprentices’ learning progress and the tasks made by them at school and in the companies.
The transnational dimension of the partnership made by vocational centers from Italy, Finland, Netherlands and Spain gives an added value for the development of the project because each partner has a strength to give a key contribution for the achievement of the expected results.
The target group of the project are apprentices aged between 15 and 25 years, in-company tutors, schools tutors and employers. The project involves 48 apprentices, 96 tutors (48 in-company tutors and 48 school tutors) and 48 companies in the activities.
The iLearn tool can be used on the mobile phones and devices of each subject involved. It takes track of the tasks made by the apprentice in the company and at school, linking them with the individual training programme and with the qualification and diploma competences that the apprentice has to acquire (key, transversal and professional). The user-friendly interface of the tool enables each subject involved to verify how the activities made by the apprentice are fulfilling the agreed training programme. The activities uploaded by the apprentices have different colors: one for activities made at school, one for those made in the companies and one for those made in mobility abroad. Tutors, trainers and company owners/supervisors can easily verify the work done by the apprentices in each phase of the learning programme and can continuously learn how to set it better. The tool includes smart assessment functions and instruments that facilitate the evaluation of the achievements done by the apprentices. It includes training video materials for tutors in order to support them to do better this job and to be more informed and trained about their roles and responsibilities. The tool includes also effective communication instruments that explain all that to companies’ owners and managers, work counsellors, apprentices and tutors. A chat facilitates the communication among the users.
