EQF meets ECVET

Project

 

"The European Qualifications Framework meets the European Credit system for Vocational Education and Training"

"EQF meets ECVET" wants to offer a new model for recognition of all learning to ease access to and progress in VET, especially for disadvantaged learners. Recognition of VET units gives value also to learned qualification parts, shows transparently the trainees’ learning outcomes and supports these learners at entering labour market and lifelong learning".

 

Funding

 LLL; Leonardo da Vinci, Transfer of Innovation
 

Partners

6 Partners from 6 Countries and 3 Associated Partners.
EASPD played the role of Project Partner.

 

Project Duration

The project lasted for 23 months from 01/11/2013 to 31/10/2015.
 

Project Summary

For many people with intellectual and learning difficulties, with migration background, for drop-outs and people from sectors of society with low educational achievement it is impossible to finish, even to enter formal VET programmes. But without recognised certificate access to the labour market is seriously compromised. To ease this target group’s access to VET and also to lifelong learning training programmes must be tailored to these learners’ needs. One form of tailored VET was developed in the project “NQF Inclusive”: basic VET programmes were defined at NQF levels 1 and 2. Another way to ease access and re-entering to (basic) VET is to modularise VET programmes and recognise these units via NQF.
Within this project a new model allowing step by step learning, showing the learning outcomes (LEOs) of the validated units, valuing them and thus offering a more individual learning path, which leaded to a whole VET programme’s certificate, was designed.
