NEW EUROPEAN SKILLS PROJECT

Jan 19, 2015Posted by ABA Admin

 
Cave 2015

During December 2014, ABA International members supported & participated in a new European skills training and safety initiative with a large group of partners from around Europe. The VET-SAFETY project was officially launched in Czech Republic following an earlier preliminary meeting held in Denmark. The project is funded by the European Union as part of the Erasmus + programme and is aimed at the vocational education & training sector. ABA International will continue to promote & support this exciting new initiative as it develops over the next few years. Common key objectives include:

  • Improving safety & skills training standards relating to working at height activities in Agriculture, Forestry & the Environment
  • Development of new resources to support skills training instructors & assessors
  • Development of an International health & safety data warehouse
  • Harmonisation & implementation of new European skills certification standards

Around 25 skills instructors from various countries attended the 1st project training event hosted by the University of Mendel in Brno and made early progress towards achieving the objectives. The next instructor training & certification event will be held in Romania during March. Further information can be obtained via the Secretariat.
