NewD / 10 2014 – 09 2016 / ERASMUS+

Current statistics on drop-out rates all over Europe clearly show that our education systems and, especially, our VET systems do not meet the requirements and needs of the potential learners, particularly in initial VET. It also seems that the didactical models in use are not able to motivate numerous learners, especially disadvantaged learners (e. g. learners with migration or ethnic backgrounds or facing socio-economic disadvantages). The project New didactical models for initial VET training of young disadvantaged persons to reduce drop out (NewD) searches for a new didactical solution. The main objective of the project is the development of an innovative didactical model to be used in the VET training of disadvantaged young learners. We want to prevent their drop-out, to get them back into the VET system; therefore, we need to motivate them with a model that reflects the life realities (motivating factors) of the target group.
