WBL – Work Based Learning

In the spirit of the Bruges Communiqué to develop a “vademecum / study” on successful work-based learning models “we want to learn from each other’s work-based learning models.

To do this we will use the peer evaluation methodology in this project.
To achieve this, in a first training / learning activity, we will teach all participants who will carry out a peer evaluation the methodology of peer evaluation.
We will develop the necessary documents together that we will use throughout the project.
We do not limit ourselves to the use of this innovative learning method for youngsters in risk. We will focus on different target groups.
Throughout this project, we will hold discussions with staff members, teachers, trainers, mentors, CEOs and policy makers to get a good picture of workplace learning in the country we are visiting

For each peer evaluation we perform, we have chosen a main focus beforehand: how to build a good network of companies, how to match a student with a company, how does the student’s coaching / support in the workplace happen by the school/by the company? , how does the recognition, evaluation and validation of what one has learned takes place in workplace learning, the common thread throughout the entire process will be the quality development and the communication between student, company and school.
Each peer evaluation results in a report for the visited center in which we name the strengths and formulate recommendations for improvement. With this report the relevant institution can get started to improve its own system of workplace learning based on the main focus that was used during the peer evaluation.

In a final document we will describe our “lessons we have learned”. This document will be published on the European platform for project results. With this document we hope that it can be used by others to introduce work-based learning or to strengthen their existing system of workplace learning.
