As significant part of this project was looking at initiatives from across Europe which were doing interesting and effective things in the world of vocational training within the built environment. Much of the good practice employed by these initiatives is included in the Report of Good Practice.
We have mapped these initiatives and categorised them according to the type of institution. We have created five categories: Higher Education, Primary or Secondary Education, Architecture Centre Private Practice, Professional Body and Other. Also each initiative has been classified into formal or informal training, where formal means that they are accredited training providers. (Universities have been left out since the map is focusing more in other type of training centres. Including an extensive list of available Schools of Architecture in Europe would be outside the scope and purpose of the map)
This online interactive map is a great tool for visualising the state of the art in initiatives about built‐environment training in Europe, in an intuitive, practical and beautiful manner.
It is important to mention that this web application and map has been released under an free licence so it is available for others to create derivative works, and all the information about the initiatives is open and available in a standard comma-‐separated format (CSV). All this information can be therefore be used and modified by other organisations to create derivative works and continue the research and development in VET in Europe – which extend our contribution furthermore inline with the objectives of our Leonardo Association.
