Echoes of the Past – Heritage Futures. Vocational Educational (VET) and Training in Post-Industrial Landscapes (ECHOES project), funded by the European Commission through the ERASMUS+ programme, highlights the need for high quality vocational training in areas of post-industrial decline, often associated with high unemployment and social problems. Such areas have a special need of new and fresh ways of looking at the opportunities the physical and human environment provides, aimed at both finding employment and on-the-job training.

This project intends to implement a set of sustainable activities and outputs of heritage education, particularly in the area of content/modules and online platforms to make industrial heritage and landscapes more accessible. It will provide VET methodologies to be used by the professionals of cultural institutions, VET providers, school teachers, trainers and professionals working with people with special needs. By setting these goals towards such specific target groups, and on an explicit cultural heritage area, the partnership hopes to contribute to the gradual and efficient implementation of a work-based learning programmes, including apprenticeships that can benefit from the intrinsic unique character of the industrial heritage.
