ECO-MATRIX – Application of the Vocational Qualification Transfer System model for ecological knowledge and skills

This project aimed to present ecological knowledge and skills in an innovative and systematic model, the Vocational Qualification Transfer System (VQTS). First these ‘green skills’ were filtered out from the occupational areas chemistry, biology, architecture and technology. Then they were described in the VQTS model broken down by steps of work and in the form of learning outcomes. This presentation mode aimed to enhance the transparency of ecological knowledge and skills in a vocational education and training (VET) programme. In addition, ECVET (European credit transfer system for VET) points were assigned for acquired knowledge and skills. This quantitative assessment of learning outcomes aimed to serve as a model example for how credits can be given for (partial) qualifications and for acquired knowledge and skills in another country.
