The project SVEA, led by MFG Baden-Württemberg, aims at increasing the cooperation as well as the social media skills of trainers working in the VET and adult training field in Europe.  SVEA will develop a training programme for trainers working in the VET and adult training field to train them in the use of social media tools. The training programme is based on the regional needs analysis carried out in spring 2010 in the five partner regions (Flanders (B), Baden-Württemberg (D), Piemonte (I), Extremadura (ES), Wales (UK)) to identify the needs, trends as well as the challenges in integrating social media tools within the VET and adult training throughout Europe. 

Parallel to offering a training programme a collaborative online platform will be developed which trainers can use to deepen their knowledge in the use of social media within further education courses.
