VET@HOME – Piloting Virtual Practical Trainings for Culinary Arts VET
Project Ref. No. 2020-1-BG01-KA226-VET-095185
Funded by: The Erasmus+ Programme, Key Action: Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices
Implementation period: 1 March 2021 – 31 October 2023
VET@HOME is designed to create and pilot a standard unit-based syllabus model for virtual practical training courses (training practice) within the VET for the profession “Cook”. It allows the sustaining of vocational training in extreme circumstances as the one caused by the pandemic. The project introduces a new approach to the delivery of practical training courses leading to qualifications that are adapted for distance and blended-mode delivery, usage of alternative learning facilities and the new operational circumstances of the food-and-beverage sector across the EU. The approach is also applicable for disadvantaged learners who have difficulties to be present physically in the training premises on daily basis.
The overall aim of VET@HOME is to reinforce the ability of VET institutions to provide high quality, inclusive digital education in culinary arts adapted as to the post-COVID19 operation standards in the food-and beverage industry.
The specific objectives are to:
– develop a model unit-based syllabus for virtual practical training courses in VET for the profession “Cook”,
– create an on-line platform for the virtual delivery of practical training courses for partial qualification for the profession “Cook”,
– equip VET-providers with a common protocol and guidance how to utilise virtual resources in practical training,
– sustain the attractiveness of VET in the culinary arts and post-crisis recovery by outlining paths for recognizing the outcomes of practical training in distance mode.
