We are happy to share the highlights of our recent hybrid meeting, held on June 18-19, 2024, at the Institut Escola del Treball de Barcelona, in Spain. This partners meeting marked another milestone in our journey towards excellence in the vocational education and training.

Day 1: Our first day was a comprehensive overview of the EXCEED project. We began with a warm welcome to all participants, both in person and online. The session opened with an insightful presentation of the project’s current state, including our implementation progress, timeline, and key results. This was an invaluable opportunity to reflect on our achievements and identify areas for further development.
Later in the day, we delved into the second workshop on the design of innovative curricula. This session was a collaborative effort where participants shared ideas and strategies for developing forward-thinking educational pathways. The afternoon was dedicated to a workshop on methodological guidelines for curriculum design, ensuring that our approaches align with the project’s objectives and principles.

Day 2: The second day was equally enriching, starting with a joint session that brought together partners and policy board members. This session was a dynamic “World Café” where we connected policies and strategies to the internationalization of VET, aligning them with local needs. The discussions were robust and highlighted the importance of integrating policy perspectives with practical training needs.
We also looked ahead to the future impacts of the EXCEED project. This session allowed us to forecast the potential benefits and influence of our work, reinforcing our commitment to making a significant difference in vocational education.

Stay connected with us for more updates and future events. Together, we will continue to shape the future of vocational education and training!
