Integrating Companies in a Sustainable Apprenticeship System (2017-1-DE02-KA202-00417)



The ERASMUS+ ICSAS project aims to give countries with no experience in dual training the opportunity to implement this training system in the footwear industry.

ICSAS arises from the need to offer countries with no experience in work-based learning the opportunity to get a first-hand practical impression of this training system applied to the footwear industry. During the pilot phase of one year, following specific curricula, German and Spanish partners will provide information on how this learning and dual training system works in their countries.

Likewise, a teaching material for footwear tutors from all countries will be developed, as well as a Sector Qualification Framework for industrial shoe production.

The project, coordinated by the University of Bremen, relies on a partnership made up by the International Shoe Competence Center Pirmasens GmbH (ISC) from Germany, Centro Tecnológico do Calçado de Portugal (CTCP) from Portugal, the Universitatea Tehnică Gheorghe Asachi din Iaşi from Romania, and the shoe companies Carité Calçados Lda., Gabor Shoes AG., and Papucei Angela International.
