Carité Calçados, Lda. is one of the strategic partners of the ICSAS project (“Integrating companies in a Sustainable Apprenticeship System“). This project aims to give countries with no or short experience in work-based learning the opportunity to get a first-hand practical impression how this training system works. The emphasis will be placed on two aspects: Firstly, the apprentices and the participating companies will enroll in a piloting phase of one year, a long enough duration to make a profound and significant experience. A second focus is set on the role of tutors:
The objectives are to develop the existing Vocational Education and Training (VET) systems of Romania and Portugal towards Work-based-learning (WBL) and improve the tutors performance in Spain and Germany based on mutual learning from the German apprenticeship system and to develop a sector qualification framework and the referencing of national qualifications of Germany, Portugal, Romania, and Spain.
