PREDIS is a strategic partnership in the field of vocational education and training, a three year project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme.

We are a consortium of six partners from five countries cooperate to counteract early school leaving of youth.

Erasmus+ supports transnational partnerships between education, training of youth with the aim to foster cooperation as well as link the worlds of education and work as a way of tackling the current skills gap in Europe.

In the EU, 6 million young people between 18 and 24 years do not have a school or vocational training diploma, with negative consequences for their personal and professional lives.

The PREDIS project involves activity in the field, is aimed at teachers / vocational school leaders who want to work for the prevention of school drop out by disadvantaged people, including migrants and Roma.

The project aims to: 

  • develop new knowledge, innovative contents and methods that will enable professionals engaged in VET to meet the learning needs of an increasingly diverse society and prevent school failure in disadvantaged groups (migrants etc.);
  • enhance self-reflection on the daily teaching practiceand on the school policy, questioning own stereotypes and prejudice, recognizing discrimination, in order to enhance structural improvement;
  • strengthening of key competencies of trainees;
  • ways of ensuring better transition into the vocational training and to the world of work.


Partners conducted a needs analysis, and develop modules for staff consisting of: basic information, knowledge and innovative teaching methods (good practices), intercultural skills and conflict management, empowerment strategies to strengthen key skills of / of learners, new approaches for improved transition and successful integration in the labor market, with the right tools Europass certification.

Drawing on findings from the needs analysis, the consortium will develop a toolkit for a blended course for vocational education trainers, teachers and other multipliers to prevent the school drop out.

The problematic has been linked to the interaction of factors such as individual social-economic status, family context, gender, socio-economic context of the education and training systems attended by the affected, other factors within the school, education and training environment, policies, etc. PREDIS integrates a transnational approach which taps into the synergy of a consortium of the European partners who operate collaboratively at local, municipal, national and international levels.

The outcomes of the project will be transferred into curriculum of VET trainers.

The produced materials will be tested by participants at different phases, especially during the course, and accordingly modified by the consortium before they will be finally incorporated into the handbook.

The handbook will be translated in the languages of the partners of the consortium. It will include all modules, and a summary of the Blended Course.

The handbook and other project products and publications – will be available for download on the websites of the consortium partners for free.
