SELFIE WBL Pilot Country Report: Georgia

The Self-reflection on Effective Learning by Fostering the use of Innovative Educational technologies (SELFIE) tool has been implemented in Georgia since 2018. In 2020 the Ministry of Education, Science, (MoES) expressed its interest in piloting the SELFIE Work-Based Learning (WBL) tool designed specifically for the WBL context in Vocational Education and Training (VET). In the period from October to November 2020, Georgia joined the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) and European Training Foundation (ETF) pilot in five European Union (EU) and three non-EU countries with the objective to validate the SELFIE WBL tool, and also to define the potential role of SELFIE WBL to support the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in WBL practices. In the Georgian context, the first exercise for the SELFIE WBL tool was intended to provide baseline data about adoption of digital technologies in VET institutions, and it was also the first attempt to involve dual education programme partner businesses in a structured self-assessment of their digital education practices. Fifteen state VET institutions providing dual education programmes were chosen for the pilot, each engaging one partner company involved in one dual programme. Eleven colleges have successfully finished the pilot. In total 209 respondents completed the customised questionnaires in 4 user groups: 32 school leaders, 74 teachers, 82 students and 21 in-company trainers. The outcomes provide indications and clues for finalising the SELFIE WBL tool and for regular use of the tool in the VET institutes involved in the pilot and, in general, in those offering dual WBL programmes. A case study of one VET college with the highest participation rates and established WBL practices was conducted, which included four semi-structured interviews with representatives of all respondent groups. Overall, the SELFIE WBL tool has been given a high satisfaction rate at 8.3/10. [This report was written with Alessandro Brolpito and Ralph Hippe.
