Intercultural competencies in today’s reality are a major key competence, also due to the significant growth in migration and the movements of people across countries. Nonetheless intercultural competence development is not yet prevalent in key education pathways. This is particularly true when it comes to the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector and VET trainers in particular.

CIT4VET – Open Online Catalogue of Intercultural Tools for Vocational Education and Training, – addresses this need for intercultural competences in VET education. The project – sustained by a consortium of partners from Bulgaria, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands and Poland – helps to improve and enhance the ability of VET Trainers to provide intercultural training by offering

  • an online catalogue of accessible intercultural tools to be used in training culturally diverse groups
  • intercultural training material for self-study or to be used in trainings
  • user’s guide to the catalogue with glossary of terms
