Produced in August 2011 by the National Contact Point for ECVET in Germany, these guidelines are intended to support stakeholders in VET in applying the learning outcomes-oriented ECVET approach and to facilitate cooperation of partner institutions organising transnational mobility action. Combining in a same document the technical terms defined in the ECVET recommendation and the joint European principles with practical experience gained in mobility and innovation transfer projects, these guidelines can contribute towards the development of a joint understanding of learning outcomes orientation in vocational education and training.
Before implementing a mobility action, the partner institutions are faced with the challenge of agreeing on a common language and common terminology regarding the contents and objectives of a mobility project. The basis for this agreement can be both the EQF system and the use of ECVET instruments for describing learning outcomes as well as for assessing, documenting and validating units of learning outcomes.
Learning outcomes comprise professional, methodical, personal and social competences to be gained by the mobile learners abroad. The application of ECVET instruments such as partnership agreement (Memorandum of Understanding), learning agreement and personal transcript is intended to contribute towards ensuring that all persons involved – including the learners – develop a common understanding of the intended results.
The guidelines include topic as :
All of them sustained by practical examples, definition of terms and bibliography that could be found in Annexes.
