Progress of the training course “Bionic Transformation Facilitator”
The main objective of the GIST project is to develop and implement an innovative training material for SMEs, which will provide them the basic competences to reach a “bionic status”.
During the last months partners were busy in finalizing the last parts of the training curriculum of the Bionic Transformation Facilitator. The curriculum focuses on companies in the furniture sector and related.
Most of furniture industry workers in the production chains are experienced craftsmen, with lots of experience but a shortage of skills. There is a set of soft skills as well as technical skills required to lead a company through the digital transformation to the bionic company.
Some basic concepts are presented, along with some inspirational examples of innovative solutions from furniture and other industries in 18 learning units grouped by technological aspects, management of the bionic SMEs, soft skills and case studies.
They offer 128 hours of engaging content. They are presented in form of powerpoint presentations followed by quizzes after each unit.
Recognizing the importance of different learning styles, GIST decided to expand the digital learning program with content-rich videos available for 17 of the learning units, infographics and micro-learning pieces for each of the units.
What’s more, the training material for SMEs, which provides them the basic competences to reach a “bionic status” will be delivered in 7 languages: English, German, Spanish, Croatian, French, Polish and Slovenian.
We started working on the GIST e-Learning Platform. The online course will be offered both as a Full Qualification, aimed primarily at young people, and as a set of independent learning modules aimed at the continuing professional development of workers and also early stage professionals, so both students and current employees can test it at the GIST e-Learning platform.
The platform is soon to be revealed – come back to our website soon or follow us at our Linkedin to be in the loop.
