efresher course for technical teachers in secondary higher technical institutes

The Training the Trainers initiative (TT) is part of the “Advanced Skills in Safety, Environment and Security at Sea – ASSESS” project, approved and co-funded in the framework of the Call Blue Careers in Europe and launched by DG Mare.

The Training the Trainers Initiative is a refresher course for technical teachers in secondary higher technical institutes from Italia, Slovenia and Croatia. Teachers will acquire new skills and knowledge in multidisciplinary areas of maritime safety, the environment and security at sea.

They will then be able to transfer the knowledge they have acquired to their own students in order to develop their vocation towards maritime jobs.

The aim of the initiative is to spread specific maritime issues to high schools’ students through their teachers, in order to anticipate their understanding of the most relevant practices in use in the sector.

It is expected that each teacher will be able to transfer, year by year, “maritime Blue Growth” concepts to his students during regular lessons. In this way, the project strives to have an orientation function and at the same time, take students closer to enterprises’ world. In fact, among the market expressed needs there is a huge request of qualified human resources especially in the maritime technologies’ sector.
