In the context of advancing but uneven digitalization, it is important that vocational training offers future-oriented preparation for the world of work 4.0.

In the "Interdisciplinary Teaching and Training 4.0" (INTENT 4.0) project, we want to develop training modules for the professional development of teachers and trainers that enable students to be optimally prepared for the world of work 4.0 by supporting the use of innovative teaching and learning practices and taking into account the concrete requirements of the world of work - such as multidisciplinary collaboration, complex problem-solving skills, human-machine interface management and cybersecurity.

They should be able to be used for flexible, interactive training, e.g. in summer schools or seminars, and should be geared to the different regional needs of the project partners.

The idea is to bring together practitioners in companies and teachers in vocational education and training to develop interdisciplinary and collaborative learning settings along the entire product supply chain. The aim is to improve both technical, ICT and key competencies. The consortium represents both business and the school sector and we expect both sides to benefit from each other.

In the first phase of the project, modules for a summer school will be developed in transnational collaboration. They will then be tested and evaluated in a learning, teaching and training activity (LTTA) and, if necessary, further developed with the perspective that they can be used regionally in different training programs in the future.

The guiding idea is to relate the modules to entire supply chains, thus promoting interdisciplinarity and collaboration between different sectors, departments and actors in the training process from the very beginning. Above all, a change in orientation from thinking in separate areas to looking at entire processes and supply chains is becoming necessary with increasing digitalization. The modules are geared toward collaboration between the commercial and administrative areas and production. The expected effects are an improved qualification of teaching and training staff with regard to 4.0 competencies, an intensification of the dialog between local vocational training providers and companies with regard to modern digital and technical developments, an intensification of the cooperation between companies and vocational training providers, and an intensification of the cooperation between commercial and technical areas. Overall, the aim is also to increase the attractiveness of vocational training in schools and companies, initially at the local level but also, in perspective, at the regional and national level.

In this project we cooperate with the National Agency of the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training.
