WHAT IS THE PFE PROJECT?
Portfolio For Employment
The Erasmus+ strategic project “Portfolio for Employment” (PFE) aims to equip young people, especially VET learners, with tools that will help them to become aware of their strengths and the categories of professions that would suit them, to facilitate their job search and their first steps in their professional life. It also aims to strengthen the proper use of digital tools in preparation for professional life.
WHY SUCH A PROJECT?
Priority competences that should be developed to facilitate job-market access are clearly:
- digital skills
- soft skills
Our project clearly targets these skills, which are primarily requested before the technical skills themselves by the world of work.
WHO IS WORKING IN THE PFE PROJECT?
We are seven European partners:
- APRECA (Action for the Promotion of Exchanges, Advice and Assistance) for France,
- EPN Germany (European Placement Network Germany) for Germany,
- the Provincial Center for Secondary Education and Vocational Training G. Zanardelli for Italy,
- the RISEBA University of Applied Sciences for Latvia,
- the AMT Language School and Consulting Company for Spain,
- the Center for vocational training Karaliaus Mindaugo profesinio mokymo centras (KAUPA) for Lithuania,
- WBE (Wallonia-Brussels Education) for Belgium, and coordinator of the project.
WHAT DO WE WANT TO PRODUCE?
We shall produce a digital portfolio containing a variety of tools to facilitate job market access for VET trainees from all backgrounds. We shall identify and transform existing relevant tools before designing innovative new ones to meet their needs. The portfolio will contain a methodology for teachers and trainers so that it can be used at school and in training centers. But learners will also be able to use it independently as each module will contain interactive elements.
HOW LONG WILL THE PFE PROJECT LAST?
The project was launched during the first transnational meeting in Brussels on February 3 and 4, 2022. It will last three years, until January 2025.
