If 3D printing is starting a new industrial revolution, it is well on its way to revolutionizing teaching and learning as well. The result of bringing these tools into classrooms is a rekindling of the powerful pedagogy of hands-on learning. 3D printing leverages hands-on learning to deepen our educational approach to traditional educational subjects.

3D Printing in VET aims to introduce the use of 3D Printers in Vocational Education and Training in Europe.

Co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, we plan to improve the effectiveness and adequacy of existing training practices in the sector, while promoting the training of VET teachers and trainers and the use of 3D printers in various educational courses being taught in EU vocational schools.

With a partnership of seven organisations comprising six different European countries, the results of this cooperation will be:

The 3D Printing Training Programme

An International Network

Model for technology-assisted planning, development, monitoring and delivery of training courses
