The results produced by the WBL 2.0 project are:
IO1 – Repository of E-learning Video Lessons and Interviews
A collection of video interviews to company managers and communication experts, to provide VET students a better understanding of companies’ expectations according to a Work Based Learning approach. The video lessons are organized in thematic areas so as to be used by VET trainers to enrich their classroom activities with specific knowledge, competences and skills coming directly from the labour market.
A collection of testimonials of entrepreneurs and employees focusing on their career and on the skills that they look for when selecting human resources. . These videos will support VET students’ motivation as they aim to underline the consistency between their educational pathway and the needs of the labour market.
To further enhance the impact of the Work Based Learning methodologies, the case scenarios are associated to the Video interviews and Video Testimonials. Starting from the Video the trainer can make use of the learning object to challenging students with practical activities to consolidate their specific knowledge, competences and skills.

A total number of 5 multiplier events have been organized. All the intellectual outputs were presented and discussed during the multiplier events and this allowed the project partners to collect an important feedback from the representatives of the target groups in order to adapt and develop the project results according to their needs.
More than 300 signatures were collected from the participants. This large number of participants, together with the direct involvement of teachers in the testing of the intellectual outputs and also the active involvement of the associated partners highly contributed to the dissemination and sustainability of the project.
The complete information related to the multiplier event is available within the Conference Section
