SkillsAct4Vet – Training

Module 2 - During the mobility

Introduction

Presentation of Module 2

This module will introduce the SkillsAct Tasks Map – a tool we developed to make students aware whether or not they activate the 5 main soft skills while performing the tasks during their internship abroad.

The SkillsAct Tasks Map is also designed to help students train and develop these soft skills. The monitoring teachers play a key role in this process, as they can enhance behaviours related to an adequate soft skills activation.

Through the SkillsAct4Vet TasksMap, the students can see if they activate the 5 identified soft skills while performing tasks during the internship. This knowledge itself can boost the skills activation and development. The level of skills activation can be adequate, poor, or absent.
