BASIC PROJECT DATA
Project ID: PA1A111
NEED AND ADDED VALUE FOR THE DANUBE REGION STRATEGY
The European Union (EU) consists of 27 member states, and each state has got a different education system. Therefore the European Commission (EC) prepared the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) because it wanted to:
- make national qualifications more readable across Europe,
- harmonize national qualification systems of different countries to a common European reference framework,
- promote workers’ and learners’ mobility between the countries of the EU and to facilitate their lifelong learning.
OBJECTIVE(S) OF THE PROJECT
In the project an EQF comparison between the different countries was developed for job qualifications in IWT. Furthermore, the best practices related to competency based education within the participating institutions and other related sectors were collected. This overview stimulates and supports the education institutes to improve their education process and will have more teachers involved in competency based learning and teaching.
CONDUCTED AND PLANNED PROJECT ACTIVITIES
The selected best practices in competency based education were used as input for the train-the-trainer course which was developed and executed during the IWTCOMP project lifetime. This train-the-trainer course is an integral part of the implementation of the new EU Directive on the Recognition of Professional Qualifications in Inland Navigation. The course facilitates the education and training institutes to implement the new Competence Framework into their education and training system.
Since the EU Directive on the recognition of professional qualifications in inland navigation concerns the entire Danube Region, the project results are also relevant for the entire Danube Region and beyond.
PROJECT BENEFICIARIES / TARGET GROUPS
Mainly IWT education and training institutes and the IWT sector.
