Background

This project aims to improve language skills and competencies within work-linked vocational training; promoting employability; mobility of employment and personal development; facilitating vocational integration and reintegration.
Within the project "Languages for Special Purposes" (2001-2003) was developed a self-study package of learning and training materials including a set of 10 language prompt cards in 12 language combinations of English, Bulgarian, French, German, Dutch and Polish. Additionally, a master of language course English for French drivers has been developed, an extension of the 10 situational cards.
The language course was completed but there was a need for further testing.

Realisation

This new project will enable the partnership with two additional Partners in Spain (FASE) and UK (Simon Management) to transfer and localise the above Master Language course into each partner language and then test it in Vocational Training Organisations in all partner countries, revisions will be made according to feedback. Learner support guidelines and an on-line assessment tool will be developed with a view to accreditation.
The ultimate aim is to influence training organisations and relevant Unions to incorporate language learning as a key component of driver training.
