UniVET – University or Vocational Education and Training

Why do young people decide for vocational training or university studies? Based on this question, a comparative investigation of the decision factors and an investigation of the most important influencing factors within the framework of the UniVET project are planned.

In addition, a catalogue of the main strengths and weaknesses relating to the main influencing factors identified is compiled.

Based on these strengths, a measuring instrument for the potentials and interests of the young people is created in order to increase their career orientation. The basic idea behind this is that if the most important factors influencing a young person’s career decision can be measured, he can also be advised individually and profitably after a test.

In the long term, the UniVET project aims to improve the career orientation of young people in all partner countries. All stakeholders should be informed about opportunities and, in this context, the acceptance of vocational education and training should be improved in comparison to higher education. One of the main objectives of this project is to raise awareness of vocational training opportunities among all target groups.

The UniVET project will analyse current trends and their drivers in all partner countries in order to provide comprehensive information for the main target groups (high school students, drop-outs, parents, schools, employers).

“UniVET – University or Vocational Education and Training” is run by TALENTBRÜCKE GmbH & Co. KG and is funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union. The project consortium consists of members from Germany, Spain, Lithuania, Italy and Poland.
