Project LEADER is designed to produce high quality intellectual outputs which enable VET students’ increase of young leadership skills across students in all types of VET institutions.
Soft skills refer to the competencies needed to communicate, cooperate and work productively. In most competitive job markets, employers do not only look for technical ability and specialist knowledge. Instead, they seek candidates who can become leaders, and leadership itself depends on both technical and ‘people skills’.
Exposing students to a comprehensive skill-set thus increases their chances for professional success. This is what we want to achieve with this project by using an innovative form to teach this to VET students: the LEADER serious game.
In this project Friesland College collaborates with schools and organizations in Denmark, Spain, Romania, Malta and the Netherlands.
