For individuals in the workforce who want to access additional or continuing training, options that allow for flexibility in terms of when, where, and how to study are increasingly sought after. Employers too seek attractive training solutions that offer suitable training times for their employees. For TVET training providers to capitalize on this, offering individualized learning options allows participants to manage their personal and professional commitments and satisfies the requirement of industry for customized training. One such example is the Learning Tools and Routes for Individuals (LearnIT) initiative at CENFIM, in Portugal. LearnIT provides individual learning approaches for trainees in the metal sector that utilize a shop floor concept to simulate environments that replicate real work situations.
