Vocational education in the built environment: report published

Since 2012 MADE has been leading a pan European project looking at vocational training in the built environment.

The Architecture Volcational Learing Network (AVLN) has been looking at how to develop closer links between vocational education and training (VET) and the world of work in the areas of urbanism/town planning, architecture, landscape architecture and other built environment professions.

Our partners are from the worlds of training, academia and non profit agencies working withn the built environment from across Europe:

Our project blog details our work within this project and you can find more information about the project on MADE's site here.

Report of Good Practice

In August the network published the Report of good practice for vocational arcitecure training.  This report details examples of good practice in the field of vocational training within architecture and other built environment professions from the 5 countries participating in the project.  A PDF can be downloaded from the blog or hard copies can be obtained free of charge by emailing Joanna Jablonska.

Map of Initiatives

The project also produced a Map of intiatives This online interactive map is a great tool for visualising the state of the art in initiatives about built‐environment training in Europe, in an intuitive manner. It has been released under an free licence so it is available for others to create derivative works.  You can see the map here and find out more about it on the blog.

Over the next few weeks this docuemnt will be disseminated to all parties in the UK involved in this area of work in order to share best practice for the future.
