Objectives

TITUS aims to disseminate and raise awareness of a new integrated blended learning environment that offers flexible and pedagogical delivery of level specific mechanical industry production process training to VET schools and in-company training organizations in Romania, Italy and Norway. This includes:

  • Educate VET instructors, e.g. within quality assurance or quality management, as active learning and training advisers
  • Disseminate an innovative transfer system for SME in-company training that are delivered on a just-in-time basis

The TITUS actions include:

  • Dissemination of new active learning and training principles for effective transfer of competence in companies, institutes and VET schools
  • Dissemination and delivery of an instructor training program targeting design, development and implementation of the learning environment tools for QA trainers
  • Delivery of flexible training courses to manufacturing industry companies for dissemination of the learning environment, training methodologies, and sound inclusion of instructional video into skills upgrading
  • Seminars, conferences and exhibitions for dissemination, raising awareness, and transfer of expert knowledge and good practises to stakeholders at national and European level.

The new learning environment with the active learning and training model, closes the traditional gap between VET training and the industrial production process workflow. The methods are generic, whereby they are applicable to European wide manufacturing industry sectors, including fabrication industries, VET schools and SME’s. They facilitate an innovative solution for cost- and time effective transfer of industrial production process know-how and technology knowledge to SME at a just-in-time basis.
