MSE-VET Italy: Participants and goals
The Italian-German cooperation project MSE-VET Italy began on 15 April 2021. On the German side, the inab Ausbildungs- und Beschäftigungsgesellschaft des BfW mbH in Leipzig, the Handwerksbildungszentrum Brackwede, Fachbereich Bau e.V. and the Handwerkskammer Südthüringen are working together on it. However, the identification of the need for the project and the idea for it are the result of the vocational training dialogue between the German Trade Union Confederation and the trade union federations in three Italian regions (Piedmont, Tuscany and Veneto). This began back in 2015 as part of the unions4VET project. In addition to the regions mentioned above, the Campania region is now also involved in MSE-VET Italy. The project work focuses on the question: “What structures should be set up to support micro and small enterprises that provide training, especially in Italy?” There is a wide range of experience in this area in the German skilled crafts sector. However, the involved actors from the German skilled crafts sector also hope that the international dialogue will also provide new inspiration for them.
