The Business Foundation for Education hosted the fourth international meeting of the Level Up partnership in Sofia, which took place on 6-7 of June 2019. The project envolves 7 organizations from UK, Ireland, Finland, Germany, Hungary and Bulgaria. It embraces Game Based Learning (GBL) technology within careers guidance to stimulate the interest of young people to Vocational Education and Training (VET) and thus address the growing skills mismatches within European labour markets.
The main project result is an interactive digital game for use in career guidance with young people that will help break down stereotypes around VET routes. The first version of our game is ready and the partners start piloting it with young people. It will also integrate useful resources and labour market information to support career choice. The mobile board game can be downloaded and tested here: http://levelupvet.eu/internal-game-development-website/
