This work package focused on the development of a transfer process (among participating organisations) aiming at implementing the ECVET framework on the identified learning outcomes. In order to achieve this objective, activities undertaken within this work package were the following:

  • Development and adoption of a learning outcome transfer process, including a common set of tools and standards for evaluating competences (learning outcomes) achieved in formal contexts and a common set of cooperative procedures for the validation, accumulation and recognition of learning outcomes

  • Testing, in Lombardy Region, of the developed model for learning outcomes transfer. 2 training sessions (3 days each) focusing on the model and involving representatives of relevant target groups was organised and followed by the implementation of the identified ECVET model by VET partners. Operators were accompanied while applying the model in order to immediately test its strengths and weaknesses (3 cycles). Results were assessed and shared with partner countries

  • Testing of the model for learning outcome transfer in partner countries through case studies for the theoretical experimentation of the model in each country system

  • Assessment and final validation of the model for the definition of a joint work programme among partners aiming at the application and validation of the learning outcomes model from one country to another


Outcomes/results
  • Operational guidelines ‘Learning Outcome Transfer Process/Model’ - a document describing the transfer process functioning, including: a framework model for co-operation among partner institutions; a set of common criteria for the assessment and evaluation of learning outcomes whatever the learning context (formal, non-formal and informal); procedures and tools for validation, accumulation and recognition of learning outcomes for the purpose of awarding qualifications

  • Memoranda of Understanding (MoU)’ [Template 1 - Template 2] - framework documents for co-operation and networking between partners. The MoUs are aimed at the establishment of mutual trust among partner organisations (and beyond)

  • Procedures, documentation and tools’, a set of tools, procedures and materials required to implement the developed model

  • Prototype ‘Learning Outcome Transfer Process Test’ - an experimental demonstrator of the transfer process functioning, including: evaluation of learning outcomes whatever the learning context (formal, non-formal and informal); attribution of ECVET points; validation and recognition of learning outcomes (including non-formal and informal) achieved in partner countries; accumulation of ECVET points and awarding of qualifications
