Developing a secure digital education system for the development of vocational skills of institutionalised youngsters

TRIANGLE aims to develop a digital platform where young people in closed institutions can develop formal and non-formal learning skills in a secure internet setting.

Teachers and students will learn how to use this environment and interact with practical trainers and external vocational training providers. Youngsters will develop a personal portfolio to increase their employment opportunities after leaving the institution, hence helping their social reintegration.

TRIANGLE is based on three core elements: People, Platform, and Programme. The project intends to bring these elements together and learn more about the synergy between these three Ps.


  • Belgium
  • Portugal
  • The Netherlands


  • Erasmus+ KA220-VET – Cooperation partnerships in vocational education and training


Ensure that institutionalised youngsters develop a broad set of skills that will boost their employability and competitiveness.

Create and implement an innovative, creative, and blended VET environment in closed institutions, targeting young people of different ages.

Strengthen the existing digital learning environments in all partner countries and match those settings with the level of digitalisation of the workplace.

Ultimately, the project aims to make the most of human capital across the EU.

Expected outcomes

Digital (secured) platforms with a safelist system and/or blocklist system for each institution.

Access to more than 50 educational tools, creative programs, 21st-century skill exercises, and skill lessons made by teachers with the support of the pupils.

Program-based collection of school grades by correctional officers, allowing the identification of inmates passible of being registered for vocational school certificates.

Build the structure for the creation of individualised digital portfolios that capture the competencies, motivation and skills of these pupils.

Develop training, learning, and practising activities targeting staff, youth, trainers and teachers.
