i-WOBAL – Erasmus+ Cooperation Partnerships KA220
Project reference: 2021-1-ES01-KA220-
Between the different participants of this Cooperation partnership, we have identified poor training for both academic and company facilitators and also a lack of commitment, not giving the training the importance it should have.
The aim of i-WOBAL (International Work Based Learning in HE) is to build up an international WBL model through an online training for the academic and company facilitators for the development of an innovative and more effective teaching-learning process that will revert to the improvement of student employability and will adjust it to what companies need, training students specifically on market’s demand.
We want to actively involve all parties (companies, HE centres and students) showing them the importance of proper training and how it can revert positively for each one of them. The project will also achieve fast adaptability to the different trends in the labour market, as the produced results will be a versatile product susceptible to change.

Who are we?
We are 7 Higher Education Institutions from 5 European countries (4 universities and 3 VET centres). Together with our 3 associated partners we make this project possible.
Universities play a key role in the development of this new international educational model, but the collaboration of other important stakeholders, such as companies, regional governments, business development agencies, business organisations, etc., is also needed. development agencies, business organisations, etc.
Working together in this strategic partnership can provide universities and other relevant parties with the opportunity to design an educational model adapted to the current needs of the environment and taking into account different points of view.
By involving all these actors, we can create a collaborative educational model where the ultimate goal is to reduce youth unemployment by having a workforce with high levels of skills, abilities and initiatives capable of competing internationally in the global market.
