What do students think ?

Juan Carlos Garcia Salvador from CIFEA MOLINA de Segura in Spian has worked out a continuous evaluation system for students and presented his ideas and example during our project meeting in Murcia. The presentation can be downloaded.

It was a very inspring session in which we spoke with students about their ideas on developing a sustainable school and training programs.

Most important questions to discuss with students are:

  • How can VET institutions contribute to a more sustainable society?
  • Is the education system in tune with a sustainable society?
  • How can the students contribute to achieving our vision as a VET institution?
  • What needs do our teachers have?
  • What examples of good practices have the students in mind?

The example susrvey is also available (in Spanish).

Renewal of the job market?

CIFEA DE MOLINA de Segura in Spain provides students with training related to the processed food and environmental sectors. For these vocational training schools it is essential to be one step ahead of the social and professional reality of both sectors.

Each course, from the CIFEA DE MOLINA, around 70 students are
promoted in training cycles of families in the food industry, safety and environment that joins the labour market.

To improve the training of our students and provide them with the skills for sustainability that society and the labour market requirements, we share with other European green schools, cooperation and innovation projects of the Erasmus program, which pose the same questions and provide us with feedback in the process of self reflection.

These questions are:

  • With whom do we learn?
  • What is the environment in which we develop our learning?
  • How does the environment affect training?
  • What are the needs of society and the labour market concerning sustainable development?
  • How can we cooperate with companies and partners so that training contributes to sustainable production systems?
  • What green skills do we have to strengthen in learning?
  • How can we adapt the curricula of the cycles?
  • What teaching methodologies are suitable for teaching the SDGs?

In this presentation CIFEA MOLINA present the answers to these question from their point of view.

Sustainable Competences for learners of all ages

Education and training, like all sectors, must take action to respond to the climate emergency.

Learners of all ages need opportunities to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes to live more sustainably, embrace healthier lifestyles and contribute – both individually and collectively – to the green transition.  

Acquiring sustainability competences, can help children, young people and adults to understand challenges related to climate change and the environment, reflect on their behaviours, and engage in action for a sustainable future.

The European competence framework on sustainability contains a proposal for these kind of competences . This framework called GreenComp can be used in edu­cation and training programmes and policies in formal, non-formal and informal settings.
