Clients and case studies
IESTPFFAA – Dual-credentialing for Skills-based Labour (Peru)
Partner: Instituto de Educación Superior Tecnológico Público De las Fuerzas Armadas (IESTPFFAA)
In 2016, Fanshawe Global (FG) began a program centered on dual-credentialing targeting the needs of the Peruvian production and skills-based labor market (industrial mechanics, information sciences, civil construction, automotive mechanics and industrial electronics). The initiative was in partnership with IESTPPFFAA (The Armed Forces Public Technological Institute of Peru) – a newly established institute operated by the Peruvian Ministry of Defense.
The program aligns to the institute´s curriculum and was approved by the Peruvian Ministry of Education. It has also been complimented by additional educational services targeting: capacity building and professional development for senior education managers, academic managers, faculty and shared library resources. Finally, FG developed a customized quality management, audit and reporting structure to monitor and evaluate progress.
Outcomes to Date
- Issue progressive modular certificates recognizing student progress - 2,094 modular certificates issued to 746 students.
- Meet ongoing labor market needs for skill-based technicians in Peru and recruiting requirements of Peru’s Ministry of Defense.
- Improvements to curriculum quality management process and procedure to support Peru’s academic and non-academic internal audit processes.
- Increased access to learning resources for Institute students and faculty through the establishment of an educational resource portal.
- Professional development training and capacity building services provided to administrators, faculty and support staff. Topics include: leadership, linking productive sectors, entrepreneurship, and strategic planning among others.
- International experiential learning for select students consisting of a two-week internship at Fanshawe College in Canada (Nov/Dec 2019).
- Curriculum mapping.
- Training workshops with interactive methodologies for administrators and teachers (implementation 2021/22).
- Established a shared library resource service for students and faculty.
- Accompaniment and permanent monitoring from Fanshawe representative in Peru.
CCREEE – Virtual Training on Electric and Hybrid-Electric Vehicles (Caribbean)
Partner: Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE)
The project, which began in October of 2020, was comprised of the development and implementation of a virtual training program centered around electric vehicle (EV) technology, safety, standards and servicing. We addressed and bridged existing knowledge gaps in the CARICOM region to provide participants a better understanding of the principles and fundamentals of electric (and hybrid electric) vehicle technology, servicing and maintenance and safety. Participants were required to complete four modules, totaling 40 hours of self-paced learning and live sessions.
The project was made possible due to funding and technical assistance provided by a number of global organizations throughout Europe, Germany, Spain and the Caribbean.
Outcomes and Technical Assistance
Upon completion of this program, participants will have gained the theoretical knowledge to address skills gaps expressed above. The program will be facilitated through the following modules:
Electric vehicle technology: power trains, design and system considerations (electromagnetic and non-electromagnetic components), power electronics, electrical and electrical control components, as well as battery design and battery management systems.
Live sessions on EV Technology (advanced training) including theoretical and practical/hands-on aspects to demonstrate the electric drive train including electric motor, inverter and battery switch; major differences between different EV models will be identified.
Servicing and maintenance of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs): thermal management for batteries and power electronics, servicing and maintenance principles of BEVs and HEVs as opposed to conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, best practices concerning battery upkeep and battery removal and installation.
Online training on EV and HEV safety aspects including personal protection and protective equipment, safety regulations for EV and HEV safety systems, as well as first response set of actions in the case of EV & HEV incidents.
Standards, testing and regulation: standard roadmaps for EVs and HEVs, applicable battery standards, vehicle and charging standards, and performance standard requirements for EVs and HEVs.
ULAGOS – Linking Academy and Industry (Chile)
Partner: Universidad de los Lagos (ULAGOS), Chile
Starting January 2021, Fanshawe Global (FG) will be working with the University of Los Lagos (Chile) to help link relevant socio-productive sectors* with their respective technical careers. This link will enable these sectors to effectively contribute to strengthening local training processes.
FG will provide technical assistance to ULAGOS in establishing relationships outside existing institutional relationships. Additionally, FG will support the creation of a practical model that will make ULAGOS more attractive to prospective students offering more paths to post-graduate employment.
*Socio-productive sector - institutional connection with the productive sectors
By the end of this engagement, the following objectives will be achieved:
- The development of an effective socio-productive link between education and technical careers enabling increased feedback and improved training. This could include internships; field trips; future employment; collaborative work for innovation; applied research and technology transfer.
- Identification and strengthening of articulation mechanisms between all campuses and venues.
- Recommendation of technological supports for recording and measuring of data.
- Implementation of the suggested model, connecting socio-productive technical careers with existing institutional models.
- Identification of “indicators” that allow for accurate measurement of project impact on socio-productive sectors.
Stage 1: Literature Review
Stage 2: Assessment of local markets
Stage 3: Framework construction
Stage 4: Implementation and training
