Project description:

FLin€VET is a Leonardo da Vinci partnership aiming to advance the development of a sustained and shared framework of Financial Literacy and its core components in the context of European Vocational Education and Training (VET). To address this aim, the project brings together a group of partners with different missions and expertise in VET practice and research (e.g., Universities, VET Providers, Teachers and Teacher Trainers, Associations dealing with VET and labour market) from different countries (Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Italy, Portugal, United Kingdom), and provides ample opportunities for explicating, communicating and possibly integrating the diverse voices of the Financial Literacy debate, shaping and fine-tuning them at the same time in order to cope with the specific requirements of VET.

  • To analyse and compare if and how Financial Literacy is actually represented and realized in existing national VET Programs of the participating countries.
  • To offer an arena for discussing the adequacy of existing Financial Literacy conceptions with respect to prevalent needs and wants in European VET.
  • To promote higher awareness, reflexivity, and critical knowledge of Financial Literacy in European VET and to point out critical issues that should be addressed in the future in the form of a wider project (e.g., Development or Transfer of Innovation).
