  • SKILLS4JUSTICE (S4J) – Skill Partnerships For Sustainable And Just Migration Patterns
    Life span 01. November 2023 to 30. November 2026
    Michael Gessler, Frieda Klaus, Kristina Kühn, Andreas Saniter
    Problem statement: In many countries, there is a shortage or increasing demand for skilled workers, particularly in the IT sector, nursing, or skilled trades. Concurrently, there are both regular and irregular migration movements. Irregular migration leads to significant disadvantages for individuals in terms of access to the labor market, which is not legally possible, but regular labor migration also proves challenging for all stakeholders. Lack of quantitative alignment between qualifications and job opportunities is just one of the challenges. In addition, qualification systems inadequately respond to changing requirements. Currently, there is little clarity on how origin and destination countries can contribute to ensuring that migration occurs fairly, effectively, and sustainably in the context of labor migration. Systemic solutions are particularly missing. The SKILLS4JUSTICE project aims to establish evidence-based foundations for the design of fair, effective, and sustainable regular migration within the framework of skill partnerships. Additionally, a toolkit will be developed to support policymakers and stakeholders in the labor and vocational training contexts in steering measures toward fair, effective, and sustainable development.
  • Mule – Multimedia Learning Environment for Work-Based Learning Tasks for VET-Students in the Sector of Applied Informatics

    In the MULE project, current trends in applied informatics are to be efficiently integrated into curricula through cooperation between vocational schools and industry. This will be achieved by defining "spheres of activity" which will serve as the basis for learning and work tasks in a multimedia learning environment. The focus is on the promotion of transversal and vocational competences of students. The planned transnational Sectoral Qualification Framework aims to improve the comparability of the competences of professionals from Germany, Serbia, Italy and Spain in the field of Applied Informatics.

    Life span 01. January 2023 to 31. December 2025
    Ludger Deitmer, Michael Gessler, Frieda Klaus, Lisa Meyne, Christine Siemer
    Problem statement: The transformative power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) extends across different sectors, including education, but it is still unclear exactly what impact AI will have on learning, teaching and (European) policy. For teachers and trainers in adult and vocational education, there are many uses of AI, such as new ways of adapting learning content to learners' needs, new processes for assessment and improving guidance for learners. AI systems can help interpret activities in vocational and adult education and link theoretical and practical learning. There is a continuing need to improve knowledge and understanding of emerging technologies and also to differentiate their use in education.

  • ZEBO: Collaborating with socio-economically disadvantaged parents in vocational orientation
    Life span 31. March 2022 to 31. October 2022
    Marija Cubalevska, Alisha M. B. Heinemann, Julia Tietjen
    Parents and guardians are the most important reference persons for many young people in phases of professional orientation. Nevertheless, decisive inequalities and uncertainties are emerging in the cooperation between schools and parents. Socio-economically disadvantaged families in particular are prematurely overlooked. After the previous project "BOGyO - Berufliche Orientierung für die gymnasialen Oberstufen" (Professional Orientation for Upper Secondary Schools) made a further contribution to the systematic improvement of Bremen's PO structures, the project is now being deepened in order to be able to better organize the active cooperation with socio-economically disadvantaged parents on the part of the schools.

    Life span 28. February 2022 to 28. February 2025
    Vivian Harberts, Falk Howe, Myrthe Reinsberg, Klaus Ruth, Andreas Saniter
    The second phase of learning, after completing lower secondary education, is essential both for continuing education and/or vocational education and training (VET) in order to enter the labour market (OECD, 2020). According to OECD, vocational education and training is a successful path for entering the labour market and countries with better developed and consolidated vocational training programs are more effective in containing youth unemployment.

Due to digitalization and the associated increase in automation, production is subject to rapid change, which is also going hand in hand with changes in requirement profiles and job profiles.
  • SmaLo – Smart Learning in Logistics
    Life span 01. September 2021 to 31. August 2024
    Daniela Ahrens, Michael Gessler, Christine Siemer
    Problem: Especially in the logistics area we are observing a similarity of a continuing digitalisation with corresponding substitution risk plus a minor participation in further education. So indisputable the necessity of learning is, it is as difficult to develop further education types to let them address equally company and occupational biographic perspectives.
  • F.IT Women in IT
    Life span 13. August 2021 to 31. January 2024
    Valerie Ambrosi, Peter Kaune, Kristina Kühn, Maren Petersen
    More women in IT - but how? Since the end of last year, the project "F.IT Frauen in IT" has been working on an answer to this question. Through targeted training and further education offers, the project wants to create the possibility of a lateral entry into the industry for women. In order to successfully implement this goal, it is crucial to know the needs and requirements of the target group.
