Summary JobArt is a framework curriculum developed in four EU countries as a Europe-wide transferable model for occupational preparation (OP) in the fields of event technology/organisation and digital media design (ET&DD). The 5-language curriculum comprises 20 modules designed for the training of both participants and trainers. These learning components are self-explanatory and encompass methodological and technical advice as well as information about career-relevant accreditation. They can be accessed worldwide via the Internet. The modular structure of the curriculum enables users to combine learning components and course durations to suit local labor-force needs and conditions. JobArt breaks new ground in that it applies well-established methods of task-oriented occupational preparation within the fields of ET&DD. This innovative program meets the requirements of both branches as well as the needs of those faced with disadvantages regarding occupational preparation. Moreover, JobArt is the first program to focus systematically on occupational preparation in two areas previously regarded as marginal in terms of employment policy. JobArt is thus also making a contribution to the process of modernising of European training and education systems. The goal of this process is the adaptation of occupational preparation schemes to the requirements of the new service professions. JobArt is significant in this regard because it has developed a completely new OP concept for ET&DD which involves a consistent focus on practical applications. JobArt’s implementation strategy is oriented to “rolling reform”, professionally relevant national accreditation, and sustainable dissemination throughout the EU. The flexible learning component concept takes into account nationally specific conditions, personal requirements, the expectations of young job-seekers, and the requirements of ET&DD in terms of professional and personal competence.
