SVEA’s main objective is to provide Vocational Education and Training and adult education staffs with the skills that are needed to remain competitive, and increase visibility in the education market. SVEA means to realize these goals by developing the web 2.0 networking practice in VET and adult training institutions.

The following opportunities of using web 2.0 social business networks can be identified:

  • Upgrading collaboration competencies through co-development
  • More efficient organizational processes
  • Providing improved and cutting edge services
  • Effective and target oriented communication
  • Evolve from a hierarchal model, to complementary and self-organized teams
  • Allow  learner-centered and self paced learning and teaching methods

To realize these opportunities, SVEA will develop and provide several specialized tools: 

  • A  custom, face to face training program, to familiarize VET and adult education professionals with social business networks, and techniques for learning and teaching with wiki’s, blogs and podcasts
  • A custom online training program for the same target group
  • An online platform offering web 2.0 tools to facilitate virtual team management, e-moderation and content sharing
