Thematic Network to Validate and Disseminate Good Practises and Quality Models of Vocational Training in Rural Areas
Fontes is a Thematic Network created in 2005 in order to validate good practice models and support quality in vocational training in connection with the new sources of employment in rural areas.
The project intends to validate training itineraries (both those that already exist and new ones), by devising a given set of tools.
These tools will allow to:
- Assess training itineraries.
- Devise a framework that allows for the official recognition of training at EU level.
- Design a high quality and efficient teletraining model that allows for the promotion of the training initiatives.
- And publicize the project, its aims and results among the target collectives: end users of the training initiatives (especially women and unskilled youth in rural areas looking for their first employment and other excluded collectives that have trouble to access the labour market); multi-agents involved in vocational training and continuing training; social partners and educational authorities.
The final products of the project are several types of tools such as: A European Observatory, an Information and Learning Resources Centre, a Teletraining Platform, the project’s web page, the dissemination material and this Good Practices Guide.
In addition to the aforementioned products, several dissemination initiatives have been carried out in the scope of the project, such as talks, seminars, meetings etc, in order to promote the project among the target collectives and the end users of the training initiatives.
