Raise the number of mobility processes within the vocational training system is one of the main objectives of the European Commission and one of the priorities for the upcoming 2014-2020 programming period. It is obvious that one of the variables through which the number of vocational training mobilities can be increased will be the ATTRACTIVNESS of these work experiences abroad and therefore their USAGE VALUE in the labour market of reference.
The project moves from the need to identify tools and practices for the RECOGNITION of the skills acquired during mobility and to improve their recognition by the labour market. More the experience will be usable, more beneficiaries will be interested in it and this will make mobility a natural thing to do and not an exception. The usage value given to the experience depends on the ability of the vocational training system to make skills acquired during mobility transparent, clear and recognizable.
Concerning this, Friuli Venezia Giulia has a system to describe and group vocational skills that has been working for years and refers to the organizations of the working process, the repertorire is not tied to the education and vocational qualifications system, making it more flexible and easy for enterprises to undestand and use. This “syntax” is an innovative practice that can be transferred for the codification of skills acquired during mobility combined with the validation of the acquired competences by local assessment companies and the use of Europass supplment of in-company experience as the reference for acknowledgement of the experience.
The general objective is to increase the quality and attractiveness of the European vocational training system by transferring innovative practices for the recognition of skills acquired during international mobility. The addressees of this strategy are students who are members of IVT and PLM groups. The aim is to transfer a model to codify and recognize the skills acquired during mobility so they will be easier to spend in the labour market.
The project aims to overcome problems that companies have in the recognition of qualifications. The aim is to develop and transfer the existing experience and tools, common guidelines to manage the acknowledgement made by the hosting foreign company and the validation made by a local "assessment" company of the work experience carried out during mobility periods.
The rationale of this project finds its origin in the following order of reasons:
... The increase in mobility processes within the system of the FP is one of the main objectives of the European Commission and one of the priorities for the next programming period 2014/2020. It's clear that one of the variables under which it will be possible to increase the number of mobility experiences in FP will be made even by the attractiveness of these experiences and their usability of the same labor market reference. The idea comes from the need to identify tools and practices relevant to the recognition of the skills acquired in the context of mobility experiences and to improve the usability of the same labor market. The more the experience will be spent, how much more will appeal by the beneficiaries and the more attractive it will be much easier it is to make mobility a rule rather than an exception. The usability of the experience depends on the ability of the FP system to make clear, readable, and therefore recognize the skills acquired in mobility.
... In FriuliVG a system of description and articulation skills related to the structures of work processes, and then dropped from the system of professional qualifications has been developed for many years. The "syntax" is an innovative practice can transfer the coding skills acquisition in the process of mobility.
... The focus of this project is therefore the need to increase the value in use of the mobility realized in a production environment of another country. The value in use may be increased as the labor market and the production system of reference acknowledge the useful experience of mobility. It follows that the certification of skills acquired can not be self-referential and therefore cut off from the system of production, but the production system must be able to find a match and its recognition. It follows that in order to structure an effective system of international mobility - as required by the future ESF programming is necessary to activate a system of certification of skills acquired in training that enhances the role of the company and even amplifies the ability to recognize the learning .
