AMT2P – Application of Advanced Manufacturing Techniques to VET:  the case of Plastics sector
Project number: 2021-1-EL01-KA220-VET-000033325
Implementation period: 01-11-2021 – 31.10.2023
Assistance program: Erasmus+

Project description

The major drawback of the 4th industrial revolution that needs to be tackled in order to exploit its advantages to their maximum potential, is the lack of knowledge and practical skills to operate, maintain, and produce value out of the use of Advanced Manufacturing Techniques (AMTs). AMT2P aims to offer a training methodology for workers in companies in the plastics sector based on the identified needs in order to adopt AMTs in the manufacturing process and to be used in a cost- and environment-effective way. AMT2P will develop a training course and supporting digital tools that will increase the flexibility of opportunities in VET in advanced manufacturing and provide workers with access to customised skill training with adaptive learning path for the plastics sector.

Target groups:

  • VET students and trainers
  • VET training centres

Project results

  • R1: ECVET Profile and AMTs Training Course Development – Development of a training methodology tailored to the needs of both VET students and VET trainers of the plastics sector.
  • R2: AMTs Training Course and LME Development – Development of the Training Assistant Tool (TAT) used by VET trainers to successfully deliver the training course to VET students which in turn need to adjust their learning paths to the content of each training module.
