HO-WARP - Action-oriented continuing education in the workplace
Companies continue to have an increasing need for continuous and dynamic competence development. This requires offerings that are company-specific, flexible in terms of time and scope, and close to the real work situation. Important approaches are: Action-oriented learning with the principle of "complete action" that includes planning, preparation, execution, result control and evaluation as well as process reflection. Agile approaches in continuing education ("agile learning") for dynamic environments with a processing of real tasks from practice in short learning phases. Up to now, workplace-integrated continuing education programs have required a longer lead time and often internal efforts on the part of the companies. Action-oriented continuing education should therefore be designed in such a way that it retains its advantages in terms of content and didactics and at the same time generates a direct benefit for the company from the outset.
- Development of a practice-oriented combination of the approaches "action-oriented learning" and "agile learning" for continuing vocational training
- Workplace-integrated learning in the company with the involvement of trainers / instructors / supervisors
- Orientation towards direct applicability in the company
All in all: creation of a procedural standard to which educational institutions can orient themselves.
The aim is that, in the longer term, various educational institutions will offer different forms of workplace-integrated continuing education that enable participants to develop their skills in line with their needs.
The project “HO-WARP- Action-Oriented Continuing Education in the Workplace” was made possible by an EU grant from the ERASMUS+ program for Strategic Partnerships and is accompanied by the “National Agency Education for Europe at the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training” in Germany.
Erasmus+ project: Empowerment of seniors in the use of digital communication and information technologies
Competent use of digital technology is a prerequisite for social participation in many areas of life today. What is often lacking is the necessary knowledge, advice and support, and the empowerment to ensure that it is still possible to use it in old age. We want to gain a better understanding of what people 50+ need in order to actively participate in digital life. With this project, we will evaluate the different requirements of the target group with the aim of subsequently offering a continuous training service.
Erasmus+ project: Digital upskilling with a hackathon
We will equip people with future skills to make them employable in the digitalized future of work. In this project, we will conduct hackathons - a modern and agile method of hands-on training based on real-life scenarios. In interactive projects, participants will learn soft skills, future competencies and digital skills through teamwork and design thinking. They will work hands-on on real problems from business and industry and build relevant skills for the future of work.
