International Erasmus+ Projects
Tredu is involved in the following projects financed by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ programme.
1.11.2018 – 30.4.2021
This project brought together curricula and teaching materials for students and teachers in the plastics sector and technology in Europe. The project focused on plastics and rubber industry in the field of mechanical engineering and production technology, but the content can also be utilized in further studies, apprenticeship training and training for businesses in other fields of education as well.
1.11.2019 – 30.4.2022
This project is linked to the cooperation of Network of Networks and Finn-Net, which continues also after the end of this project.
The aim is to collect and share good practices within networks. Networks involved: Finn-Net (Gradia, Tredu, Salpaus, Varia) and networks from the Netherlands (TDA), the Basque Country (HETEL) and from Scotland and Northern Ireland.
In this project, teachers and students from different fields of education collaborate in solving challenges related to welfare technology. The goals include guiding teachers towards new methods of teaching and learning, cooperation between curriculas and making the use of welfare technology easier and more accessible.
The project utilizes LTT weeks (Learning, Teaching and Training) and virtual learning environments. As an end result of the project, the aim is to prepare a handbook for teachers describing the different cases met during the project and the pedagogical methods used.
This project is coordinated by Tredu and other partners involved are from Finland, the Netherlands and Spain (The Basque Country).
1.11.2019 – 31.12.2022
Vehicle repair industry is changing and the use of electric vehicles is on the rise. In this project, a combustion engine vehicle is turned into an electric vehicle. In all participating countries, the students will work through the entire vehicle conversion process with their teacher.
This project will provide a broad overview of the current situation of this field of education in Europe as well as new teaching material. During the project, practical teaching content and virtual teaching material will be produced and tested to be also more widely distributed for the use of multiple suitable fields of education.
The project’s coordinator is from Spain and other partners involved are from Finland, France, Romania and Turkey.
This project offers opportunities to explore the possibilities of sustainable development in teaching and learning across Europe. During this project, we will examine the situation in different countries and share and discover good practices and ideas on sustainable development.
During LTT periods (Learning, Teaching and Training), the partner schools introduce different local practices and e.g. organize visits to companies and other places where sustainable development is an integral part of their operation.
The coordinator of this project is from Germany and other partners involved are from Finland, Denmark, Italy and Spain.
The project idea is strongly linked on developing the pedagogy of online learning and utilizing digital teaching content in vocational education and training. The project is targeted towards developing the skills and approaches of teachers working with special needs students.
The project is coordinated by Kiipulasäätiö and it involves partners from Finland, Austria, Germany and Italy.
22.2.2021 – 30.9.2023
This project responds to the need to develop education and working life to benefit from and meet the needs of modern technology. The funding makes it possible to acquire equipment needed to use virtual and augmented reality in teaching.
During this project, methods and good practices on using different virtual learning environments (VR and AR) and tools in teaching and working life will be tested and shared between the European partners and companies. New teaching material will also be produced.
The project coordinator is from Germany and other partners involved are from Finland, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands.
This project is linked to the multidisciplinary use of digital tools and new technologies in vocational education and training.
The project’s background is in the challenges, successes and good practices in distance learning brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. Information on these is gathered and distributed within the project coalition and more broadly within the Network of Networks.
The project coordinator is from Northern Ireland and other partners involved are from Finland, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and Ireland.
1.3.2022 – 29.2.2024
EUMOSS is a project for developing security sector teaching and training curricula and content that considers the growing need in the market, differences in legislation and other specific needs for training.
The coordinator of this project is from Germany and other partners involved are from Finland, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic.
The purpose of these projects is to support the international mobilities of students and staff.
The goal of internationalization in education, and studies or work-based learning abroad is to provide students with professional skills and abilities which enable them to operate in a multicultural environment and to pursue an international career.
Staff mobilities also provide a great opportunity to gain valuable international experience and develop professional and language skills.
