People need maintenance and upgrades even more than machines do.
Retraining is maintenance.
Training is an upgrade.
Development is the next generation model.
MBM TDC promotes the work-based learning is an excellent educational strategy that provides students with real life work experiences where they can apply academic and technical skills and develop their employability.
In a wide range of work-based learning TVET programs, our learners have the opportunity to explore potential career options. They can get an inside view of what different careers may look like, identify career interests and skills via the unique connections to industry professionals and opportunities to see options first hand.
WORK-BASED LEARNING AS A CORE ELEMENT OF TVET
"One of the biggest challenges in developing skills for the labor market is to ensure that learning meets the needs of the workplace. One of the best ways of doing this is to make the fullest use of the workplace as a powerful learning environment, and to find effective mechanisms to link employer interests to the mix of training provision. This is more easily said than done. The development of high-level workplace skills, where work-based learning plays a leading role, is one of the central challenges both for competitive enterprises and collectively for a modern productive economy."
OECD PAPER on Work-based learning in vocational education and training (VET)
Creating opportunities for high-quality work-based learning thus lies at the heart of current European education and training policies. In February 2013, the European Council confirmed that the highest priority should be given to promoting youth employment and invited the Commission to establish a “European Alliance for Apprenticeships”. It also announced the creation of a dedicated Youth Employment Initiative, open to regions with high youth unemployment rates, with a financial support of EUR 6 billion. Despite these commitments, the supply of apprenticeship and traineeship places in the EU continues to be under-developed. The need to identify, adapt and adopt practices which can tackle this skills gap is urgent.
The EU Research paper on Worked-based learning in Europe (http://ec.europa.eu/education/policy/vocational-policy/doc/alliance/work-based-learning-in-europe_en.pdf) points out that part of the solution can be found in high quality vocational education and training (VET) systems, in which the active participation of employers and a strong element of work-based learning facilitate young people's transition to work by providing the knowledge, skills and competences which they need for a successful first step into the labor market.
Work-based learning programs provide internships, mentoring, workplace simulations, and apprenticeships along with classroom-based study. In a work-based learning program, classroom instruction is linked to workplace skills through placements outside of the school that allow students to experience first-hand what adults do in jobs.
Work-based learning is important because:
