The InclusiVET project has as main objective to contribute to a more inclusive environment at Vocational Education & Training (VET) Institutions, by creating interventions aimed at increasing underrepresented students’ engagement in the life of their academic institution.

InclusiVET will focus specifically on students at VET institutions who typically attract a more diverse range of students and with a higher proportion of non-traditional students compared to higher education. There tend to be more adult students, lifelong learners, parent students, students from a migrant background, students with a disability, etc. At the same time, VET curricula have specific characteristics that influence student engagement, such as short times spent in the institution due to many students studying at shorter courses and considerable time spent on practical placements outside the institution.

InclusiVET will explore the engagement of students from diverse backgrounds in the life of their institutions. The project aims to improve policies, mechanisms and practices for inclusive engagement of all students regardless of their background and circumstances – to engage students in all aspects of their teaching & learning journey, quality assurance & institutional decision making, within the life of the VET institution and student life in the wider sense and also enabling them to fully embrace the democratic values of education in their interactions with wider society.
