SSEVET2 – Strenghthening VET Trainers’ Competences and Skills

  • Desde: 2018
  • Contacto:

The main goal is to promote the Social Solidarity Economy (SSE) in Europe, through the training of trainers in this thematic area.

This action stems from a first project aimed at introducing the ESS into initial vocational training programs for young people, where 3 training modules (available here) have been developed.

Co-financing by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ Program, the project aims to contribute to innovation in vocational training programs, aiming at the civic and professional development of people, by integrating alternative socio-economic models into their ideas and attitudes.


Project objectives:

1. To know the national and European scenarios regarding the competences of trainers in ESS;

2. To develop content and methodologies to strengthen the skills of trainers;

3. To advocate for the inclusion of ESS in the training of trainers at national and European level.


Target groups:

– Trainers;

– Training entities;

– Solidarity Social Economy Organizations;

– Political decision-makers;

– Young people.
