Modules for Vocational Education and Training for competences in Europe II – MOVET II

MOVET II focused on transparency and recognition of learning outcomes (LO). This Transfer of Innovation project (TOI) from 2010 until 2012 explored a practical approach to the system ECVET (European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training). Knowledge, skills and competences acquired by students within transnational modules were assessed, certified and recognized. A VQTS-based Competence Matrix (for mechanics in industry) and a Taxonomy Table as instruments enhanceed transparency of LO and promoted mutual trust between training providers. The seven new developed modules for students in IVET in the field of engineering finished with especially designed assessments of LO. Vocational schools, companies, competent bodies and other protagonists of VET from Germany, Denmark, Finland and Slovakia validated the acquired LO as relevant for the national training profiles. Sending institutions recognized these LO within regular IVET of their students. A memorandum of understanding of all involved partners served as a basis for the acknowledgement of LO.
