1
European Credit Transfer System Developments and
next steps
  • National Qualification Frameworks Creating
    Connections
  • Zagreb, 20 October 2006
  • Arjen Vos

2
Outline of Presentation
  • ECVET What is it about?
  • Consultation process
  • SEE to be involved in consultation?

3
ECVET a LLL perspective a person centred
system
KSC1 capital
Formal
Informal
Formal
On the job
1 knowledge, skills, competences
4
EQF main elements
Credit systems (ECVET, ECTS)
5
Why ECVET? example
Learning context A
Learning context B
Mr X has an opportunity for a learning period
(abroad )
Mr X achieves L.O.
6
Why ECVET? example
Learning context B
Learning context A
Now Mr X wants to transfer home new L.O. to
include them for the qualification
Achieved L.O.
7
Why ECVET? example
Learning context B
Learning context A
But he cant, because of barriers
Achieved L.O.
8
Barriers
  • No accumulation
  • No validation
  • No transfer
  • No transparency
  • No mutual trust

9
Why ECVET? example
Learning context B
Learning context A
ECVET would mean Mr X can transfer home his new
L.O.
Achieved L.O.
10
Why ECVET? example
Context AQualification (only if competent
body A validates L.O. achieved in context B)
Learning context A
NB! The L.O. gained are now an integrated part of
his qualification
11
The ECVET ambition example n2
 On the job  Learning context
Formal Learning context
Mr X wants to transfer new L.O. to include them
for obtaining a qualification
L.O. achieved by experience
12
ECVET LLL Routes to Qualification
Academic learning context
On the job learning context
All relevant life experience learning context
Or Mixture of all the above learning context
13
ECVET LLL Routes to Qualification

Qualification
14
ECVET LLL Routes to Qualification
Academic learning context
On the job
Assessment validation of learning outcomes
All relevant life experience
Or Mixture of all the above
Qualification
15
ECVET the three legs
Assessment / Validation of L.O.
Accumulation / capitalisation of L.O.
Transfer of L.O.
Learning outcomes
16
The core of ECVET Units of Learning Outcomes
  • Units defined by a coherent set of KSC
  • knowledge
  • skills
  • Competences

Unit
Learning Outcomes
Content of units is thus independent of training
methods, learning approaches, etc
17
The VET qualifications design
VET Qualification
Number, size, level (EQF), characteristics and
credit points value of units are defined at
national level by competent bodies
18
Credit Points to supplement qualifications and
units
Qualification
Credit Points allocated for qualification and
each unit, by competent bodies
Unit
19
Credit Points an example
VET Qualification
20 Points
75 Points
40 Points
15 Points
20
ECVET a tool box
  • Principles and general rules
  • Guidelines for learning outcomes
  • Guidelines for units credit points
  • Guidelines for assessment validation
  • Guidelines for VET supply (mobility issue)
  • Memorandum of understanding
  • All relevant instruments and documents
  • Templates

21
Summary
  • Assessment, Validation and transferof learning
    outcomes
  • Qualification designed with
  • units of learning outcomes
  • Credit points for qualifications and units of
    learning outcomes
  • Memorandum of understanding for mutual trust
  • Guidelines (for units, credit points, Learning
    Outcomes )

22
ECVET consultation
  • The consultation document
  • The roadmap

23
The consultation document
  • As short as possible
  • 15-20 pages annexes
  • As clear as possible
  • Legible for different VET stakeholders
  • As complete as possible
  • Conceptual basis
  • Technical specifications
  • Practical implementation

24
Consultation provisional roadmap
  • End October 2006 Consultation launched
  • October-February 07 Information in the MS
  • End March 2007 End of consultation
  • June 2007 Final Conference (D)

25
Three DGEAC studies
  • ECVET Move-It Obstacles to Mobility
  • ECVET Connexion ECVET for apprentices?
  • ECVET Reflector Development of ECVET system for
    apprenticeship

26
Points for discussion
  • How relevant do you consider ECVET for your
    country?
  • Should also the potential Candidate Countries be
    involved in a parallel consultation?
