MobilityExcellence: European Bridge for Competence Recognition
Project No. DE/10/LLP-LdV/ToI/147346
Duration: 24 months, from 01/10/2010 to 30/09/2012
The aim of the project “MobilityExcellence” was to build a bridge for competence recognition used by stakeholders in UK, FR, MT and DE within IVET mobilities. The CEMES competence evaluation tool was adapted and transferred to facilitate the introduction of an ECVET system, giving added value to mobility projects by enhancing quality and transparency within the Hotel and Business Administration sector.
Mobility of learners is a European key priority in vocational education. In particular, mobility of apprentices needs to be promoted to a greater extent. The differences in European vocational education and training systems currently have a rather inhibitive impact on the educational content. It is of great importance to create mutual understanding and trust with regard to transparency and recognition of learning mobility. The LEONARDO DA VINCI Transfer of Innovation project "Mobility Excellence" devoted itself to this task and aimed to improve the value-added content of mobility as a formally recognized part of vocational training. Therefore ECVET and EQF provided an ideal "bridge" in geographical mobility. An important ECVET instrument is the assessment of learning outcomes, as it serves as a basis for the subsequent validation and recognition. The project aimed to transfer the CEMES® competence recognition procedure - first developed for management competencies - on the acquisition of competency in the mobility of apprentices.
