ICARE Analysis of Existing Methodological Approaches for the Application of ECVET at the National, Regional, and Sectoral Level
Project Name/Author: ICARE
Date Posted: 09 April 2013
Description: This document assesses a number of European and national ECVET projects and describes their approaches, in order to focus on the most promising ones for the ICARE project. The analysis of existing ECVET projects has been carried out by exploiting four different kinds of data sources: 1) ECVET Pilot Projects (11 projects) 2) DECVET Projects – DECVET is a German national experimentation, linked with ECVET but with a stronger focus on labour market flexibility (10 projects) 3) Other projects implementing ECVET approaches (7 projects) 4) Official EU documents and studies on ECVET. The projects have been analysed according to four phases of development. The study has described each phase in detail: 1) Preliminary phase 2) Preparation phase 3) Implementation phase 4) Final phase. For each of the four phases, the tools developed by the projects have also been analysed and described extensively: 1) Competence Matrix and Memorandum of Understanding 2) Competence Profile, often in the form of a Learning Agreement 3) Learning Units 4) Assessment grids. The projects have been assessed according to two main criteria, plus one: 1) The achievement in implementing Learning Outcomes 2) The relevance of their methodologies and tools for the ICARE project 3) Similarities and differences.
