Gyakornoki központok és a COVID-19

A COVID-19 egész Európában gyökerestül felforgatta a szokásos oktatási és képzési tevékenységeket, ideértve a szakképzést is. Ezt különösen befolyásolta az a tény, hogy a gyakorlati képzést, például a munkahelyi tanulást és a gyakornoki proramokat a legtöbb ágazatban felfüggesztették.

Minden nehézség ellenére a projektkonzorcium továbbra is online dolgozik és elősegíti a tanulószerződéses gyakorlatot az agrár-élelmiszeripari ágazatban.

Gyakornoki központok létrehozása

Az Apprenticeships Hubs projekt sikeresen létrehozott 4 központot Horvátországban, Görögországban, Olaszországban és Magyarországon. Minden HUB elsődleges célja a tanulószerződéses gyakorlati pozíciók kínálatának növelése a kis és közepes mezőgazdasági létesítményekben és a kis élelmiszeripari ágazatban. Támogató szolgáltatásokat nyújtunk a szakképzési szolgáltatók, a vállalatok és a szakképzésben részt vevő hallgatók számára (a tanulószerződéses gyakorlatok megszervezésében), és egyeztetjük az ilyen pozíciók iránti keresletet és igényeket.

Erősíthetik-e a gyakorlati képzések és a gyakornoki rendszerek az európai agrár-élelmiszeripart?

Segíteni fogja-e a növekedést új tehetségek felvétele mezőgazdasági és élelmiszeripari szektorban?

Ha igennel válaszolt, olvassa el az alábbiakat, és nézze meg, hogyan vehet részt az európai agrár-élelmiszeripari ágazat modernizálásában.

February 2020 – Staff capacity building meeting in Florence

The first capacity building meeting for the staff of the App HUB project was successfully conducted from the 18th to the 22nd of February 2020 in Florence, Italy.
Besides Regione Toscana which was the hosting organization, there were also representatives of all the project’s partners.

During those 4 productive days, a plethora of activities took place:

  • A hands-on tutorial on the proper use of, both from the admin’s and the user’s perspective.
    A significant part of the workshop was dedicated to the Positions section, the platform for submitting calls for new apprenticeship positions openings, which is going to be one of the project’s most essential elements.
  • The Apprenticeship Hubs operation manual was presented, discussed and finalized among the team.
    This particular document is going to be the main guide throughout the creation and the establishment of the national HUBs.
  • A group visit was organized to the Ruffino winery, one of the most recognizable Toscany based brands worldwide, in order to receive a first-hand feedback on their apprenticeship program and, of course, to take a peek into the backstage of this historic establishment.
  • A series of good practice presentations, task reports and discussions on the project’s next steps that boosted the workflow and kept everyone up to date.

Special thanks to the Regione Toscana apprentices who provided us with some great culinary creations and a great hospitality.
After the meeting was over, they were all awarded certificates of attendance and special gift bags. It was a symbolic and adherent to the project’s ideas move, inspired by our exceptional host Regione Toscana, that maximized the meeting’s efficiency and quality.

Apart from the above, it was the team bonding, both inside and outside the official meetings, that really kept the team going, got us to know each other even better, and gave a great push in order for the project’s goals to be fulfilled at their fullest in the future!

Until then.. Arrivederci!

There’s a solution to everything

Recently, a documentary called „Where Have You Been in 2017?“ as part of the „Absurdistan“ series was shown on the Croatian public broadcaster. The documentary talks about one of the biggest absurdities of modern Croatia and, in a somewhat sorrowful atmosphere, portrays the mass emigration of the population and the situation prevailing today in Slavonia, a traditional agricultural region in the east of the country, not long ago known as the „Promised Land“.

The circumstances that affect us

Many of us have certainly found ourselves, during our lives, in a kind of “vicious circle” related to finding a job. Specifically, companies highly value work experience and, therefore, lack of such experience is a major obstacle for first-time job seekers.

July 2019 – Second meeting in Greece

The second meeting of the Erasmus+ project Apprenticeship HUBs in agro-food sector took place at the offices of Νεα πασεγες in Athens, Greece. The meeting was combined with a workshop on Quality Assurance for Apprenticeships, where partners elaborated on the first version of the Apprenticeship Hub model for the agro-food sector.

Through the project, four pilot Apprenticeship HUBs will be created in Croatia, Greece, Italy and Hungary. They will have as a primary goal to increase the offer of apprenticeship positions in agricultural establishments and small food industries and will provide support services to VET providers, companies and VET students, on organising apprenticeships.
