The Clusters target is to develop the next generation of seafood education to support the sustainable developement in the seafood value chain.
Based on an interview with Cluster members back in 2017, there was a need to re-design the educational programs in vocational technical colleges in RAS/closed/semi-closed systems. Together with project «KABIS», OINC (Ocean Innovation Catapult), Western Counties and Vocational school, we have set an ambition to develop new and more updated educational programs for the industry, including Continuing Education and Professional Development within new production methods.
There are defined 4 sub-goals in the project:
- National training program for teachers in high school aquaculture
- Continuing education for employees in the aquaculture industry and supplier industry
- New vocational technical college within RAS
- Mapping of digital learning platform for use in teaching
