Eurosuccess Consulting Project: AWARE – Enhancing the level of cybersecurity awareness in VET related to digital transformation

Eurosuccess Consulting is a partner of the EU-funded AWARE project which aims to develop didactic approaches, methodologies and curriculum content for raising cybersecurity awareness and competencies as a priority for the VET sector. This project is built upon the realisation that the transition to Education 4.0 requires learning mechanisms that closely mirror the future of work and should be accompanied by vetted innovative pedagogies. In order to foster this, the AWARE project shifts from a process-based, to a problem-based approach to learning.

The AWARE project is guided by the following objectives:

• Address the increased risks related to a digitalised world on an individual level in everyday life, in school, at work, at home and more specifically, in relation to VET

• Address the digital transformation through digital readiness, resilience and capacity by developing innovative learning and teaching resources

• To raise awareness, empower and equip participating organisations with basic knowledge in the field of cybersecurity.

• To raise awareness and educate on cybersecurity issues among VET learners and teachers related to the digital transformation of industry and organisations

• To demonstrate the need and the potential for VET-business cooperation in order to enhance cybersecurity related competences of VET teachers and learners

• To foster permeability of VET by encouraging VET learners to seek educational and career opportunities in the field of cybersecurity

• To reach policy makers in order to strengthen the placement of cyber security in VET.
