Leaving nobody behind: need of development of digital competence in VET 

Leaving nobody behind in times of digitalisation needs the development of digital competence in VET 

Teachers and lecturers need to measure our own competence in distinct areas such as professional engagement, learning and teaching, and education in the digital world.  

VET-TEDD’s self-assessment tool allows us to do so and there are two further components, comprising six learning programmes and a series of case studies which give a flavour of the kind of work already being done across Europe.

VET-TEDD is different as it will offer a one stop shop to offer diagnostics, skills development, and best practice all in one solution. 

The VET-TEDD Self – Assessment tool provides a deeper analysis and assessment of the competencies required of teachers to embrace and use technology. Digital competencies are of course important, but assessing digital competencies alongside personal competencies, as demanded by changes due to industry 4.0 and professional competencies in line with the standards demanded of VET teachers will ensure a more comprehensive assessment is undertaken. 

This tool will not only diagnose strengths and weaknesses in skills. It will also offer formal learning to enhance skills and showcase best practice in the application of the technologies available to teachers to enhance learning content. Furthermore, it will increase the opportunity for teachers to acknowledge and appreciate how these technologies can be applied across a wide range of vocational subjects.
