Expected impact

There is a gap between the industry requirements and the current training methods, which do not take into account how many staff that are champions in problem solving while they at the same time avoid and fears the required theoretical training. This will be resolved by developing

  • a common framework of M4.0 learning outcomes for inspection in Europe
  • new work-based M4.0 learning, tutoring and assessment delivery pedagogy and resources that increase capacity for skills instruction of inspectors and contribute to a QA of assessment in formal VET delivery systems
  • national work-based learning delivery partnerships that will update M4.0 VET resources, shared by a VET provider network and supported by industry tutors within inspection
  • M4.0 piloting of the delivery of NQs to work-based learners utilising shared resources and the evaluation of learners’ experiences, to inform the development of improved VET learning systems within inspection

EUROMEC helps improving the M4.0 VET system for SMEs inspection industry staff. The new in-company tutor system will offer a new system solution applying standarized and harmonized methods for support during the theoretical training phases and in particular the work-based training for inspectors to be organized in smart industries.

The overall mission is to improve the accessibility and quality of work-based learning for inspector operatives at two levels, and prepare for harmonisation of M4.0 industry endorsed national qualifications.
