2° ENNE Newsletter April 2020
Dear Reader,

right now everyone is at home due to COVID-19 pandemic, a completely new situation for all living generations that is changing our lifestyle in many European countries and in the rest of the world as well. Someone is able to work in smart mode directly from home, but others instead had to stop working. Many teachers are trying the best to continue teaching online, thanks to the support of the digital tools available.
Big communication companies, increasing the speed of the Internet Connection at home, offer free subscriptions to use their services such as translations app, TV series, e-books,  platforms to help students or teachers, and many others that you can find in this Newsletter.

ENNE Project goes on and this second Newsletter could be considered as a special edition to keep in touch with all of you by sharing some solutions to improve your digital skills, benefiting at the same time from all the digital tools available for free.

Every month we will share the most relevant news, events and resources in the field of VET, including information about our network members and any other organisation that wants to share its good practices in the field of VET!

We are ready to go and you... you could be part of it!

ENNE Project Team


ENNE Project goes on during this moment where most of us are concerned due to Covid-19. Although everything is changing, this situation can offer new opportunities to improve our collaboration, knowledge and connections. 

The ENNE Project had to modify something to comply with current regulations that require to stay at home and go out only if strictly necessary.



As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the closing of education and training institutions all over the world, several initiatives have been taken to ensure continuity of the learning and teaching through this period. For this reason the European Commission launched an online survey (from 18th till 25th of March) to capture the variety of initiatives that have been undertaken.
The results:

  • Many online courses/learning modules is available, but they are mostly NOT VET specific, so  there is a strong call for the Commision and national public authorities to create a database with existing resources to be shared for free around Europe;
  • The highest number of examples was provided by stakeholders is from Spain (as you can see from the map).


How to maintain continued learning and skills building for students and workers in times of crisis, such as the COVID-19 pandemic? The platform Skill for Employment has opened a discussion to glean insights into innovative practices in education and training, particularly those that are embracing technology to promote skills development. Follow the instructions and give your contribution to the discussion!
