Georgeta Ion and David Rodríguez will participate as a representation of EDO-UAB in the first meeting of ProNet Project: “Pro Networks: Supporting inter-sectorial networks in the integration of university drop-outs into vocational education and training” that will take place in Berlin next 26th and 27th of November.

The project, funded by the European Commission with a total Budget of 147.046€ in the framework of Erasmus Plus Program, will be developed between September 2015 and August 2017 and it is coordinated by FBB Forschungs Institut Betribliche Bildung Gemeinnutzige GMBH from Germany. In addition to EDO-UAB, will participate as associate entities Centre Interinstitutionnel de Bilan de Compétences Bourgogne Sud (France), Akademia Przedsiebiorczosci spolka z ograniczona odpowiedzialnoscia (Poland) and Narodni vzdelavaci fond, o.p.s. (Czech Republic).

This project focuses on the identification, European-wide understandable documentation and recognition of learning outcomes of university drop-outs students, which number is increasing. The purpose is that they be able to benefit from a European area of skills and competences, from the creation of a new tool. The partners of the project will develop guides that will allow those who drop-out, to document their qualifications and competencies.

The meeting will help to concretize actions to develop in the following months. For it, the partners will briefly present the situation of their country regarding the vocational training system and the university drop-out. Moreover, it will be a place to analyse institutions that can be the best candidates to act like potential replicate places of the experiences that will be elaborated in the project.
