In a dynamic society teachers are expected to prepare students for jobs that may not yet exist. By working with employers, teachers can ensure that they help students receive up-to-date knowledge and experience of the working environment. Opportunities to work with employers gives students an insight into employability skills, both in general and in-depth. Involvement of employers in the curriculum will allow students to develop their practical skills, interpersonal skills and analytic skills that match the requirements of potential employers.
Started in October 2011, CVE is a 2 year-long project, funded by the Comenius under Lifelong Learning Program, with activities planned throughout 7 different European countries: Poland, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Romania, United Kingdom and Portugal.
