One of the greatest challenges for the implementation of the national and the European Qualification Frameworks (EQF) is the assignment of qualificational profiles to the individual levels according to comparable principles. This should be envisaged in a way to safeguard comparability and transparency of differently structured qualificational profiles. Therefore the main target of the project is to develop practical methods and aids/ tools which can be easily applied by the respective institutions. The development results will then be tested, made applicable and used in the partner countries (in companies, in training institutes, by the social partners). The developed tools and methods will be made available in a way that they can be easily handled.
They should be suitable to assign qualifications and training regulations/ curricula defined by the member states to the respective national qualifications framework (NQF) and to assign them to the individual levels. The methods and aids should help to reach comparability in order to better assess the quality of European qualificational profiles. More or less a “networking” of the individual qualifications frameworks should safeguard mutual transparent relationships.
At the same time the project aims to shed light on the advantages of result-oriented, sector-related qualifications frameworks which may help to meet the assignment tasks.
First and foremost transparent instruments for operationalization must be developed and applied which can also be used for concrete cases within the sectors worked on in the project and which can be transferred to other sectors.
The project work will focus on the metal and electrical sector as core sectors. The metal sector includes the automotive sector. Work process orientation will be the overall basis for all project work as it is structurally identical throughout Europe.
