Nordplus Junior's transport and logistics project Transmobility 2017-2020 is coming to an end.
The project has been led over three years by:
South Savo Vovational College, Mikkeli, Finland.
Nordic vocational schools as partners:
Syddansk Ehrvervskole, Odense, Denmark.
Samarbeidsforum for Opplaringsvirksomheter Innen Transport, Oslo, Norway.
Björknäsgymnasiet, Boden, Sweden, Oslo, Norway
Kaunas Technical Vocational Education Centre, Lithuania
Together with our school, 6 partners. The project was a continuation of the good cooperation that had already been going on since 2009, with VIKK as a new partner. Teachers and students of our truck driver curriculum were willing to go along in order to develop a network of cooperation on transport and logistics, to broaden horizons.
Each school had to bring one company from this field. The aim was to link learning and real working life. The participants were teachers, students and company representatives. However, the focus was more on the students.
Each school offered a topic that could be practised and experienced in that school and in the nearby enterprises.
The themes were:
Denmark: forklift training, customer service, working environment&safety.
Norway: robotics, IT and hi-tech automation in warehousing.
Finland: cargo security, traffic security at winter time (simulator training, snow chains etc).
Estonia: maintenance service, technical service
Lithuania: Preparation of cargo for delivery
Sweden: Temperature controlled cargo, ADR, safety on road (cancelled)
Fortunately, we were able to carry out most of the events planned for the project before the COVID rules.
The teachers/coordinators and students of the Transmobility project were in Vana-Võvid in spring 2019.
All in all, our school participated and attended the workshops:
