3 – Initial and vocational training on sustainable development

It is fundamental to organise initial and professional training courses to meet the needs of teachers, local authorities, companies and society in sustainable development.

Initial training must be given by persons able to transfer their knowledge of the subject through global and cross-subject programmes that are specific to sustainable development.

Vocational training is part of “life-long” learning developed by working closely with socio-economic partners who expect a lot from universities in dealing with the challenges of sustainable development whatever the level of training.

These initial and professional training courses must use the results of research and more specifically of educational research.

Training for teachers

Whether directly or indirectly, universities play a major role in teachers’ initial and professional training.

Universities are directly involved in planning and implementing educational resources and the associated digital systems (TICE (IT and communication resources for education), e-learning, UNT).

Vocational training

The University also plays a important role in professional training that concerns a wide range of people. It is carried out in various ways (face-to-face training and alternate work/study placements) and try to bring an appropriate answer to the concrete needs of the society. This involves analysing these needs in order to offer courses that meet employers’ requirements.

Those already in active employment can still advance professionally by the recognition of VAE (knowledge gained through experience) and VAP (professional knowledge).
