Activities

The project aims at realising, organising them in consequential work phases, the single required passages to activate the new ECVET process for the concerned professional field:

A) Analysis and preparatory researches:

- to analyse in each participating country and VET system the tourism professional field concerned by “heritage interpretation” activities (existing figures, profiles, qualifications);

- to classify this professional field within the EQF levels;

- to identify a shared professional perimeter to activate an ECVET process for the new European common qualification of “European Heritage Interpreter;

B) Action plan for the new ECVET process:

- to define an action plan, based on the collection, analysis, transferring and adaptation of experiences and good practices already implemented on transparency and recognition of competences and qualifications and on the ECVET process (starting from the approaches and instruments tested by the project LdV ToI HtC) for the activation of ECVET within the shared European common perimeter of qualification;

C) Design of qualification in terms of learning outcomes units:

- to describe the common European professional perimeter, that is to design the new European sectoral qualification of “European Heritage Interpreter” in terms of units of learning outcomes and parts (activities, tasks, knowledge, skills and competences), and to attribute the ECVET points to the same one and to the individual unities;

D) Memorandum of Understanding - MoU ECVET:

- to prepare a complete draft of the MoU with learning outcomes units and parts and related ECVET credits already shared for the new qualification;

- to involve in the MoU, in addition to the partners, public institutions competent in VET, and other interested organisations, particularly the social partners and the VET providers of concerned sector;

- to formalise the MoU, by partners and competent and / or interested organisations;

E) Pilot test for the implementation of the MoU:

- to define a common model for the Learning Agreements to be drawn up, in accordance with MoU, by professionals/trainees interested to recognition of learning outcomes and qualification, and by enterprises and training agencies involved (it is foreseen that will benefit by experimentation at least 120 people, with priority for women and unemployed and aged people, of whom 15 in each core partner participating country);

- to endorse within the National and Regional Qualification Frameworks of each participating country the new European sectoral qualification of “European Heritage Interpreter", updating and/or adapting the NQF-RQF, both inserting in them the new qualification adapted to national and regional professional standards, and updating relevant national and regional qualifications of tourism sector;

- to draw up the Learning Agreements;

- to define a common model for attribution of ECVET credits, based on common principles and tools Europass Certificate Supplement;

- to start, in accordance with the Learning Agreements, the putting in transparency and training activities with regard to MoU learning outcomes units;

- to attribute, by the involved VET providers , the ECVET credits to people beneficiary from training courses and setting in transparency that have allowed evaluation and certification of learning outcomes established by MoU;

- to transfer, validate and to accumulate the ECVET credits attributed, through the territorial and sectoral VET systems involved in MoU, in compliance with national and regional rules on modality and procedures of certification, validation of formal, non formal and informal learning, organisms competent with such purposes.

These objectives and measures of “development and production” are joined by others, cross-cutting, ranging from coordination and management of project (also in terms of quality assurance) to the information of key actors and valorisation of project results, for their transfer to the decision makers and for their adoption and application by final users. In particular, informative days are planned with key stakeholders and deepening focus groups on project results throughout its development and in all participating countries.
