LeadVET Multiplier Event Helsinki is organised by Haaga-Helia School of Vocational Teacher Education.

Using mentors to close the theory-practice gap in VET education

The overarching ambition of LeadVET is to enhance vocational teacher education (VTE) and vocational education and training (VET) by developing sustainable university-school partnerships, together with leadership and networking skills for professionals in the field. In this multiplier event we present the results of project 3, a VTE-student mentoring system, and how it may help to close the theory-practice gap in VET education.
