This product aims to serve as a common basis for the development of educational materials across Europe. It comprehensively describes what learners need to learn and the knowledge and skills they need to develop to be able to act effectively in support of the implementation of the SDGs in SMEs through VET. It provides the means for educational administrators, course designers, teachers, teacher trainers, examining bodies, etc. to reflect on their current practice in order to situate and coordinate their efforts and ensure that they respond to the real needs of the learners for whom they are responsible.
