BOOST – Business PerfOrmance imprOvement through individual employee Skills Training

Description

Description

Small and micro enterprises have a decreasing participation in vocational education and training. There is a real need to engage them in developing a positive attitude towards training. BOOST will integrate tools and develop associated methodologies. These will enable enterprises with less than 20 employees to identify their critical business needs and then also to find appropriate and customized learning resources to meet these needs.           

 The project will publish all relevant information on its website and communicate with the target groups also via social media. The most important results will be the technical prototype and platform, which are based on an innovative methodology. At least 15 case studies are planned, in order to evaluate the prototype. More than 40 small enterprises will be involved and over 100 individual employees will test the tools, which will enable to identify their skill gaps and fulfill the business critical demands. At the end of the project a conference for training providers, business networks, and policy makers will take place. A suitable sustainability strategy for project outcomes will be developed too.

Comments/Description
    Responsive Open Learning Environments (ROLE) is a European collaborative project with 16 internationally renowned research groups from 6 EU countries and China. ROLE technology is centred around the concept of Self-regulated learning that creates responsible and thinking learners that are able to plan their learning process, search for the resources independently, learn and then reflect on their learning process and progress. Given this task, ROLE´s main objective is to support teachers in developing the open personal learning environments for their students where they can train each of the phases mentioned.
