The Ecovet project intends:

  • To compare the qualifications of the existing sector in the partner countries, focusing attention on the profile selected;
  • to identify training courses and parts of qualifications " ECVET- compatible " which are able to communicate to each other;
  • to identify common processes and memorandum of understanding to facilitate the mutual recognition;
  • to propose to the competent authorities, (key actors in VET systems and related systems of transparency and certification of qualifications), and in particular to Tuscany Region with whom we shared ECOVET project, possible changes and / or implementations to be implemented on the basis of European experience.

This process should lead to a  greater transparency of competences and qualifications and especially to the employability  in European labour market, in the sector and contests identified by the project.

Therefore ECoVET intends to develop adaptation and transfer a methodological framework of a shared process on the development of professional qualifications - already recognized by ISFOL and Europe - in order to test it in different geographical contexts and sectors.

In particular, the profile that the project NET.WORK selected as best practice for training is defined in Italy as “Assistant in the direction of tourist accommodations”.

The transfer that ECOVET proposes is in relation to the green economy sector, in particular regarding the role of a Technician for design and development of energy-saving systems and the national standard IFTS which is part of the training system of Tuscany Region
 This professional profile has been transferred into the green economy sector, in reference to the profile expected by the training system of the Tuscany region of Technical(technician) for design and development of energy-saving systems and the national standard IFTS related to it.

The first transfer is GEOGRAPHICAL.
Specifically, we intend to transfer the Best Practise:

  • In Italy, in the province of Siena, in the Tuscany Region (involved in ECoVET DG competitiveness of the regional system and development of Skills - Orientation and Training sector), and on the whole national territory through the network of schools associated within the consortium CONFAO.
  • At transnational level in the partner countries.

In addition, in order to ensure a high level of effectiveness and efficiency of the project and a significant sustainability of the final output, the partnership is engaged in a process of adaptation and transfer in the following issues:

  • SECTOR: extend the initial trial in the tourism sector to the green economy
  • CONTENT/ METHODOLOGY: expanding and reviewing tools and methodologies, identified by the original best practise, in order to make materials more relevant to the specific needs of the different stakeholders in the preselected contexts
  • LANGUAGE: design and production of outputs and results in the different languages of the partnership
  • TECHNOLOGY: providing a website with virtual, collaborative spaces to allow coordination and guided communication to improve the exchange of experiences among users.
