Exchange of innovative teaching and learning methods in the craft and service sectors (EITA)

project duration: 15 Dec 2019 – 14 Dec 2021 (extended to Aug 2022)

involved Organisations

Bildungshaus Heideland HVHS (Lead partner, Germany)

The partners in the project are coming together through Erasmus+ funding , because of common interests in supporting rural areas and their long history of collaboration. The purpose of EITA is to take a close look at vocational educational training in the below area’s and enable the workshop participants to pass gained knowledge and skills on to their local community (including educational institutions)

  • cultural heritage and wellbeing (tourism, landscape management…)
  • sheep herding and wool processing
  • food industry: bread and cheese production and marketing
  • different local raw materials like honey and vegetable oils (from bee keeping to olive and almond harvesting and processing)
  • sustainable agriculture and horticulture (herbs, fruit trees and vegetable growth)
  • different handcrafts (Lefkara lace, embroidery etc) and others

Expected outcomes:

The involvement of different partners from north, west, east and south Europe will enable us to show and reflect on very regional approaches on the same subject and to provide this knowledge to others by putting it into easy to access learning units. Each partner has identified a “specialism” that is useful to some or all of the others.

We are hoping to create useful modules on above subjects.
