In the sector of the landscaped arboriculture, every country has or not certificates or national diplomas. But there are also two European certificates delivered by the European Arboriculture Council ( EAC):
- European Tree Worker (ETW): for the professionals realizing operations of plantation, pruning and care in ornamental trees.
- European Tree Technician (ETT): for the clerk of works in green space and landscaped creation. The interest of these titles is to guarantee homogeneity of skill level in all the countries of Europe members proposing them. The partners of the project are every actors of the formation in these sectors and have for objective to drive more public towards these certificates. By leaving of their current knowledge and by targeting their gaps, the candidates can choose the modules of short training adapted.
Indeed, having realized the questionnaire the participant will have an individualized cartography of the course which he will have to operate to validate the chosen title.
The project took place according to its initial objectives:
1 - Transfer, promotion and transparency of the skills keys of the climbing -arborist:
The transfer of the reference tables of skills of the French partner allowed the Spanish Association of Arboriculture it could suggest new profiles jobs to the professionals of their sector and even it proposed it which does not exist in France, the arborist-gardener. For the Vocational training centre of Erglu, the adaptation of the reference table of training of ETT to the Latish context is going to allow them to propose this certification. The reference table job of formation and evaluation of the climbing-arborist served as common theme to build the tools of the project.
2 - Evaluation of the skills of the learners with a test of positioning:
A European platform of on-line arboriculture was created during this project including:
- a data bank of 500 questions in 6 languages.
- a unique application (usable on smartphone) allowing to create various types of evaluations computerized with automatic results, possibility of personalized feedback and results stored in a database.
3 - Improvement of the transparency and the recognition of the knowledge and the skills
The tests were realized in three phases. Both first ones were especially intended to identify the problems in the formulation or the presentation of the questions and the global functioning of the questionnaire. It is indeed delicate to ask to somebody to express his opinion on the relevance of a tool when this one is not finalized. The last phase allowed collecting the opinion of the users who were able to use a more stable questionnaire.
4 - Increase of the number of formed workers:
Once stabilized, the tool was presented to the various target public, in particular with the bodies of financing of the vocational training to propose them a test which can be used within the framework of the positioning of the trainees who wish to follow a module of formation. Diverse meetings were organized in every country to promote tools or in the form of conference or by individual meetings.
5 - Business concern of the results :
We drafted a business plan which determines in which financial conditions and for which types of tools it will be possible to use the results of the project TREE also by taking into account the problem of copyright.
