5° ENNE Newsletter July 2020
Dear Reader,

The school year has officially ended, many students have just graduated and, in the coming months, they are preparing to enter the world of work or to enrol at the university.

The last few months of school have been problematic for both teachers and students, who have had to deal with new methods of study and teaching that are different from the ones they were used to.
The online lessons replaced the frontal and traditional ones, creating difficulties and demanding additional coordination that required much more efforts for the schools.
However, despite the problems and considering the urgency and speed with which everything had to be organised, the final result seems to be rather positive, even though there is definitely room for improvement. 

Surely, this experience may suggest points of reflection to start again and to decide upon the future of learning and school curricula.
The next steps we should reflect on is how we could reduce the distance between what is being studied and what the world of work actually needs, aiming to encourage the entry of new young people and contain the long-standing problem of unemployment.

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 organization 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!

Blended Learning
What is Blended Learning? It is an approach that combines learning in school with distance learning, including online learning, it is also a flexible model that can support a project or course of study to progress whilst not requiring teachers and learners to be in the same physical space at all times. 
The Blended Learning is useful for times when attending a school site is not possible (as for Coronavirus pandemic situation) or when other sites are more appropriate for the learning approach.
We should consider all benefits and disadvantages illustrated in the analysis realized by the European Commission in consultation with representatives of the ministries of education.  The study explores the pedagogical opportunities and challenges of a blended learning model and highlights key considerations that policymakers and schools may reflect on when planning to combine in-school and distance learning in their particular contexts.
