What we do
This Erasmus+ funded project wants to establish a common ground for Vocational Education and Training (VET) institutions to meet the needs of the industry. Four education partners joined forces in this project to elaborate on the skills necessary for the graduates of institutions to be competitive and useful on the field of journalism and looks for ways of incorporating this skill training into already existing curriculum of participating educational institutions - both methodology and structure-wise. DOVOS also verifies and optimizes the designed skillsets in practice with the participation of both academic and media institutions and develops ways of including the above mentioned skillsets into the digital systems of the institutions using open source software so that it could be easily modified by third party users to fit anyone’s needs. The DOVOS-project started on the 1st of September 2015 and will end in August 2018.
