A seminar about how to train the trainers for Industry 4.0
The world of the production industry is changing rapidly with the introduction of digitalization, what is sometimes described as Industry 4.0. Digital elements such as collaborative robots, additive manufacturing and digital twins are now common in the industrial workplace. But are schools and training institutes ready to support this transition? To the present day, many teachers and trainers are not aware of the change; most of them don’t even know how to use online instruments that already exist to design, to learn and to evaluate.
The objective of Erasmus+ project Fit for 4.0 is to define soft or horizontal competences for Industry 4.0 and help teachers and trainers achieve these competences through self-assessment tests and on-line training. This seminar is an opportunity to share the project outcome with the beneficiaries; teachers, VET-trainers, headmasters, decision-makers, HR-officers and workplace mentors.

About the project
Fit for 4.0 describes a set of competences that are required to the trainers to develop and to experiment with some practical tools and training units addressed to 4.0, in close cooperation with enterprises. Specifically, the project is focused on the automotive, mechanical and mechatronic sectors, where advanced digital skills are essentials and where the 4.0 revolution has already started
Understanding the relevance of 4.0 can help to co-design education with an inter-disciplinary method, with colleagues and enterprises. Education can promote innovative methods that anticipate operating processes on the labour world.
