After having completed the suggested readings and watching, the templates provided in the VET21001 Toolkit can be used by learners to train its handling and implementation, under the supervision of educators.

In courses with a longer duration, this can be done through the implementation of the templates in real contexts – e.g. in the educational organizations where the learners work (if employed in the sector) or in educational organizations that are partners to the organization delivering the course based on this curriculum and that, under that partnership, provide work-based learning experiences to the learners.

In courses with a shorter duration, this can be done through the implementation of the templates in one or more mock case(s) provided by the educator. Learners can work in groups and educators can use the clusters’ approach to distribute selected templates to each group to apply to the mock case. Educators can then use the flip classroom method for learners to present their group work and the peer discussions method to clarify any doubts and correct any misunderstandings, in order to consolidate the learning achieved.
