Strategic Partnerships for Embodiment Design Methodology in Vocational Education (Yellow Tulip) Project

About The Project Information:Yellow Tulip Project

Yellow Tulip project aims to improve the quality of vocational education and training across Europe. And also targeted, cooperation between VET providers and local/regional business communities with a view on internationalisation of VET. Additional target is enhance the responsiveness of VET systems to sector-specific labour market needs, contributing to increased economic competitiveness of the concerned sector. Project main focus is exchange best practices and innovative ideas, exchanging good practices and innovation in VET provisions, guidance and counselling. Development and delivery of new vocational teaching and training materials is our project main axis. Developing and delivering of new VET teaching/training materials and methods, cooperation between vocational education and training providers and business communities, designing and delivering curricula responding to the needs of labour market and of the learners in economic sectors are possible effects on our project outcomes. This project captured cooperation between different sectors to share knowledge; Projects promoting distance OER based learning, Project facilitating recognition of qualifications at EU level, project design and deliver curricula to meet the needs of the labour market. Targeted sharing of results to vocational education and training policy makers, enterprises and advisors. Overall of them, these targets in project will help to improve employability and life skills for individuals and contribute to the competitiveness of the European economy.In our proposed Yellow Tulip Project, our aim is making the vocational education and training system acquire the “Advanced Embodiment Design(AED) application method”, which has been applied, trained, taught and developed application methods by our shareholders in the project for five years, within a short term; and making it widespread in businesses in Europe in the long term. The “Industrial Design Process Application Method (Embodiment Design Methodology)”, which is aimed to be transferred in the scope of the proposed project, starts with the industrial design and product development concepts, goes on with the importance of design in competition and its position in product development,and is completed with the examples of design method and industrial design process. AED Also covers the test/approval and activating processes. At the very beginning of all these processes, there is the concepts of dominating all the process and describing it (specific, measurable, available, realistic and time-based),and the transfer, application and spreading of accurate design method with project shareholders from various angles by transferring VET, which form the main basis of the project. With the increase of the value of the QFD (Quality Function Distribution), which will accelerate the economy of our country and the production sector in Europe at a significant level, an increase in the sustainable quality concept is accepted together with the European Union orientation process. With the VET application method, which will be transferred with the strategic partnership, it is aimed that there will be differentiations in the production sector in our country, added values will be produced and contributions will be made to the branding and to the reduction of costs. In the scope of the project, the aim is not only developing an awareness and innovation process in the production sector, but it is also aimed that the training materials and e-learning applications are developed at the end of the project for the purpose of diffusing mainly the parts that support the production and the transferred application methods in VET institutions in Europe as free-of-charge and in many languages. The AED process also covers the Computer-Assisted Design (CAD), virtual prototyping, and fast prototyping processes as well. In this context, vocational education and training, and the intermediary employees that are capable of renewing themselves and making analyses and syntheses, following technological developments with basic VET and industrial knowledge and prone to team work with the skills that may be employed in projects that require interdisciplinary work are needed in the whole of Europe [1]. It is expected that AED vocational education and training process area is extremely wide, and that the demand for qualified employees having the VET education application method increases in time. As a conclusion, it is planned with the proposed strategically partnership project of ours that various applications and activities are performed with the aim of transferring the AED process application method and diffuse it[2].Referance: 1- European Business Forum on Vocational Training, A report submitted by Danish Technological Institute in association with GHK, Technopolis Limited, 3s Unternehmensberatung GmbH, 2012.2- Supporting vocational education and training in Europe: the Bruges Communiqué, ISBN: 978-92-79-19899-1, 2011.
