In some countries, such as Denmark and Finland, the personal education plan has become an important element in vocational education. It is a requirement that apprentices make their own education plans with their own goals for their training.
The personal education plan is a result of conversations between:
- The contact teacher and the apprentice
- The apprentice and the training company
How is an education plan drawn op?
Before the education plan makes its way into the logbook, a process has taken place.
In the process, objectives have been defined. These objectives have been adjusted, and perhaps new objectives have arisen. The apprentice is responsible for this process. It's a difficult task, and the apprentice's contact teacher and training company need to guide and support him/her.
Larger companies have often made their own logbooks for the apprentices.
