Supply Chain Visibility Project (#SCVisTool) is a collaboration between four partner institutions; The University of Gloucestershire, MIP Politecnico di Milano Graduate School of Business, École Supérieure de Sciences Commerciales d’Angers (ESSCA), Dublin Institute of Techology DIT, Alexander Technological Educational Institute of Thessaloniki (ATEITH).

SC Vis Tool Project

The aim of the project is to create a validated VET programme with content linked to specific job positions in a sector containing low skilled positions. The particular attention to this group has been addressed in this proposed VET project which is designed to increase the quantum of good quality resources available in the fashion sector. It will promote work-based learning through the experiential work-based online learning model.

The SC Vis Digital Tool will include flexible and permeable learning pathways by incorporating an online platform where the resource is always available. It will enhance the access to vocational and educational training which is primarily aimed at those learners in the workplace and will increase the supply, accessibility and validation of VET.

As well as VET providers, the resources produced will be of value to academics and students. The VET resource, developed with industry, will provide additional content and training to mainstream higher education programmes thus improving the quality and relevance of academic programmes. In addition, the project combines education, research and innovation not only in the content and related outputs but also in the partnership of organisations and stakeholders involved in this project.

As well as directly supporting the priority above, the project and its outputs contribute to the priorities set out in the Europe 2020 Strategy.
