The second meeting of the international EduChampions project, framed within the Erasmus+ program, has taken place in Tenerife, Canary Islands, where new steps have been taken to improve the training and educational processes of Vocational Training.
Ikaslan Bizkaia continues with the initiatives and projects towards a European cooperation framework, promoting the improvement of quality in education, specifically in Vocational Training. For this reason, this week has taken place in the Canary Islands, the second transnational meeting of the EduChampions project.
Tenerife was the island in charge of receiving the partners of this project, which focuses on inclusion and equity in training and educational processes. The company Disruptia, an expert in digital transformation and dedicated to promoting the employability of young people and breaking the gap between young talent and job offers, has been in charge of hosting the meeting.
The event has worked on Work Package 3, EduChampions Interactive Board, where each participant has presented interactive infographics that show the stories and achievements of inspiring edupreneurs through interviews and videos. On the other hand, we have worked on Work Package 4, which aims to create a modular Learning Path that allows educators and education specialists to expand their competencies in edupreneurship, and adopt meaningful approaches and strategies to address the diverse needs of students in educational settings. This pathway is composed of 8 training modules, one for each partner, to be presented at the next meeting in November 2023 in Riga, Latvia.
During the meeting, Disruptia, leader of Work Package 3, was in charge of providing feedback on the work done by the members, and the participants had to modify and improve the infographics for the next meeting.
The EduChampions project, which started in 2022, has an estimated duration of 2 years, and its main objective is to promote the edupreneur mentality, the gene of entrepreneurship in the field of education, so that teachers and training specialists act as drivers of improvements in training processes that ensure equity and equal opportunities.
