Context of the project

In late 2000, the Ministry of Education proposed to the National Committee of the European Union, in conjunction with several member states to engage in a discussion on developing a common approach to build future "European degrees ".

The project

The COPILOTE project, achieved between October 2006 and October 2008 within the framework of the Leonardo da Vinci programme, aimed at the setting up a supportingstrategy for small and medium size company tutors in the building sector in Europe.

The partners coming from 8 contries (Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland) worked at methods, processes and toolspermitting company tutors to be more efficient as trainers and to give trainees a real opportunity to be durably integrated as skilled workers into building companies.

Original experiences made in each country were explored and new solutions, adjustable to specific national contexts, are now proposed.

Moreover, high quality training programmes need a real partnership between company tutors and training center intructors.
