About The Project
This is a partnership of four European vocational colleges and industry training providers working within the fashion and dressmaking curriculum and focusing on involvement of craftsmen from the relevant sectors whilst actively promoting the acquisition of eco-fashion skills such as recovery and recycling. This will be achieved by combining mobilisations with the partners’ lesson delivery schemes and practical hands on activities leading up to and during visits.
The aim of the partnership project is to respond to the needs of the labour market by investigating, collecting and sharing sustainable design and dressmaking techniques and materials. In anticipation of the further industry need, an accessible resource bank will be built onto the partnership web page which holds both, the findings of the project and retail alternatives for the fashion creations of the project such as internet advertising, virtual fashion shows and on-line retail of all the participating countries which made available to all interested international professionals at the end of the partnership project.
The partnership will also reinforce closer working links between the vocational subject areas and working life; encourage participants to consider different progression opportunities by offering challenging and exciting, but safe learning opportunities; promote educational and language/cultural development of staff and students; raise awareness of international labour markets and enable participants to consider themselves as an international professionals. With this project, participants will further broaden their horizons and have a chance to see how students study and work in other countries, thus realising the possibility of increased success of young peoples’ transition to the labour market.
