Increasing the labour market relevance of VET provision and reducing skills mismatches and shortages in the new booming "Sharing Economy" sector.

Design of a Training Module for Sharing Economy Practitioners.


Training Module for Sharing Economy Practitioners were developed by the Project Partner, which is AKMI Anonymous Educational Organization from Greece (





The design of the training program for the sharing economy practitioners is based on the following tasks:

  • TASK 1: Identification of groups (modules) of basic and special knowledge, skills and attitudes that the sharing economy practitioners need to possess (or upgrade). This step is in straight connection to the identification of the desired learning objectives of the training program. In this sense, learning objectives are articulated sets of knowledge, skills and attitudes based on the vocational profile (of the sharing economy practitioner).
  • TASK 2: After the identification of learning objectives they are being transformed into training modules which aim to provide the corresponding modular sets of knowledge, skills and attitudes for the sharing economy providers. This process ensures that the content of the training modules are suitable and adequate in relation to the learning objectives.
  • TASK 3: Training modules and program implementation methodology are going to be prepared in order to fulfill the necessary and sufficient conditions for the effective delivery of educational content and achievement of learning goals and objectives for the sharing economy practitioners.
  • TASK 4: The training program design is going to be finalized by addressing any necessary equipment and instructional materials and other educational methods that have to be used.
  • TASK 5: Finally the profile of trainers will be identified and described in very detailed way.
  • TASK 6: Pilot Implementation of the training program. The preparation of the training course is going to follow the implementation of a pilot course, in order to test the expected results and the skills and knowledge profile created after participation at a training program.

o 25 sharing economy practitioners (or wannabes) are going to take part at the pilot implementation of the sharing economy training program

o the participants are going to be of different socioeconomic background, men and women are going to be equally represented in the selection group.


After the implementation of the pilot training, an evaluation is going to take part (lasting at least three months) in order to identify gaps and training needs not covered in a proper way. Revision of the training material is going to be conducted if necessary.


The pilot training will be implementing in Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland and Portugal after July 2017.
