Sharing Approaches to Result in Excellence
Date du début: 1 juin 2016, Date de fin: 31 mai 2018 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Project SummaryBridgwater College provides excellent teaching and learning to a wide range of students from a diverse set of backgrounds. The socio-economic characteristics of many students represents a challenge in promoting a European wide awareness that can support wider employability. Staff are focused on the student experience and benefit from networking and applying different pedagogical approaches.The SHARE project helps to change lives through unique opportunities to exchange vocational experience and transfer cultural awareness across twelve partner organisations. For many participants this European adventure is the opportunity to travel abroad and experience the European added value of being hosted and introduced to activities that develop vocational skills or pedagogical approaches which support students’ project objectives related to:• Employability• Qualification attainment• Personal awareness, experience and communication skills. Staff participating will benefit from a wider European network of colleagues which will enable further action research developments; transferring vocational related good practice between partners; and contributing to Bridgwater College's ambition to be 'world class'.The project provides opportunities for participants to learn from work placements, training in vocational settings, work shadowing and cultural activities. The opportunity to participate in student mobility programmes will act as an incentive by offering students who might possibly have never ventured beyond their immediate environment, the opportunity to broaden their horizons and learn about education and career opportunities in other European countries. This mobility initiative is linked to our priorities for development supporting the College KA2 strategic partnerships and focus on Engineering, Automotive Engineering, Construction and Health and Social Care, where demand is not matched by the availability of a skilled workforce. In each of these vocational areas, Students participating in the programme will be working toward Level 3 or 4 qualifications either through their College based/work based or Apprenticeship pathways; this transnational mobility/work placement will be directly integrated into their study modules – this, using European tools of Europass and CV - will ensure greater impact and sustainability, improving students’ employability prospects. The students will be aged 18-24 and both male and female.Bridgwater College is one of the most successful colleges in the UK, across a wide range of curriculum including VET provision. An identified gap, which the SHARE project helps to narrow, is awareness and positive embracement of the wider European experience. Many of the 44 students and some of the 22 staff involved in the project will be first time travellers to partner organisations. In addition to achieving the specific objectives it is envisaged that the project will provide immediate positives for direct participants. It will also give longer term impact, as role modelling through dissemination activities will inspire future cohorts and groups of students and staff to engage with European partners. This will support further innovative and effective pedagogy and vocational education and training.
