Expected impact

The overall mission is to improve the accessibility and quality of work-based learning for machine operatives at EQF 4 level for the EN 1090 standard, and for the EQF 5 level. This includees start preparíng for ‘harmonisation" of industry endorsed NQ, hereby promoting learner and skilled labour mobility that apply blended learning programs for the delivery of the training. Such blended learning is combining recognition of prior learning (RPL), training in the classroom, e-learning tools, work-based training practices and VET with video. The e-learning components are implemented into a professional e-learning tool.

The EN 1090 course is structured into 10 competence units. One competence unit is the smallest educational unit available. One course is divided into N units and may be studied independently of each other. Each competence unit contains descriptions of the content of the unit, general and specific learning outcomes (knowledge and skills), and the students general competence after completing a competence unit. The learning resources inside one competence unit include descriptions for teacher- and student guidance, a catalog with digital learning materials, tools for continuous assessment and grading through an exam. 

The learning management system includs a digital library, which will make it possible to set up a system for sharing and reusing revised documents across borders. It provides a technical solution for more efficient cooperation and support on developing learning materials across borders. The training program will design and deliver

  • a common framework of learning outcomes for European fabrication developed through a formalized fabrication skills and VET provider network
  • new work-based learning and assessment delivery systems and resources that increase capacity for fabrication skills instruction and contribute to a quality assured assessment and formal VET delivery system, supported by their VET providers
  • national work-based learning delivery partnerships and support teams that will update fabrication VET resources, shared by the VET provider network and their industry associated partners
  • piloting the delivery of fabrication NQs to work-based learners utilising shared resources and evaluating the learners’ experiences, to inform the development of improved teams supported VET learning systems
