LEADER is an Erasmus+ project which aims to support students in Vocational Education and Training (VET) to develop appropriate soft skills, allowing them to take control of their careers.
Soft skills refer to the competencies needed to communicate, cooperate and work productively. In most competitive job markets, employers do not only look for technical ability and specialist knowledge. Instead, they seek candidates who can become leaders, and leadership itself depends on both technical and ‘people skills’.
Exposing students to a comprehensive skill-set thus increases their chances for professional success.
