Training model

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.

Key features of the Second Chance model

The training model offers a chance for young people without a formal vocational education to recover basic skills, become self-empowered and benefit from a facilitated access to VET (Vocational Education and Training) qualifications.

Thanks to a modularised and personalized training programme, tailored to the needs of the target group and integrated with workplace learning, trainees will be prepared and guided in order to succeed in acquiring a VET qualification.
