The training model developed through the Second Chance project is dedicated to young adults who wish to gain access to a first VET (Vocational Education and Training) qualification. This model offers an alternative and modularised opportunity to those who wish to be involved in a personalised training.
The training plan
The main outcome of the project is a comprehensive training plan that enables facilitation and preparation of the target group to access training and lifelong learning, through:
- initial assessment of soft and basic skills;
- modularization and articulation in learning units of the Learning pathway, with recognition of partial qualifications;
- flexibility and personalization of the training plan;
- workplace learning throughout the training period;
- improvement of basic vocational skills to empower and reintegrate trainees in the educational and professional environment.
