Project’s objectives and goals

The main project’s objective was to enhance VET quality and attractiveness through innovation practices transfer to identify, certificate and recognize knowledge, skills and competences acquired within different learning paths (non-formal and informal) in different UE Member States, i.e. promotion of qualifications/competences transparency through non formal and informal learning on the job validation.
The mean to realize this objective was ECVET model transfer denominated with units of learning outcomes (transferred from Italian partner Training 2000). The model was supplemented and adjusted to calculate, accredit and accumulate ECVET credits denominated with validated professional competences as learning outcomes acquired on-the-jobs. Thanks to this closer unification of meanings: educational standard and professional standard have occurred.
Among goals there was designing of common quidelines as well as procedures and tools indispensable to draft common standard of validation of qualifications/competences for chosen professional profiles in building construction sector.
Thanks to this the project gave the answer on dynamically changing needs of building construction sector towards qualifications/competences through enhancement of ECVET instrument implementation. The project contributed to increase of building construction sector competitiveness in Europe and had an impact on increase of EU Member States citizens employability.
