Marketing Text The Lifelong Learning project VQTS II focused on transferring and further elaborating of methods and procedures for developing the VQTS model by using the ideas and principles described in the VQTS project. The core elements of the VQTS model are the Competence Matrix, Competence Profiles and Competence Profile Certificates (including credit points). This publication, which is the final product of the VQTS II project, seeks to provide information about developing these core elements and the ways of applying the VQTS model; in particular, how to use it in the context of transnational mobility and to enhance permeability between VET and HE programmes.
The final publication comprises the main results of the VQTS II project. It is composed of the following parts:
__Part I: Competence Matrix;
__Part II: Competence Profiles and Competence Profile Certificates (including credit points);
__Part III: Mobility Procedure, Memorandum of Understanding, Learning Agreement;
__Part IV: Using the VQTS model for enhancing permeability between VET and HE;
_Part I: responsible authorities or competent bodies from different countries who are planning to create a Competence Matrix for a specific occupational field.
__Part II: responsible authorities or competent bodies planning to develop Competence Profiles of a training programme or a person in training based on a specific Competence Matrix.
__Part III: competent bodies and training providers and persons in training who want to establish partnerships for organising and implementing VET placements abroad.
__Part IV: competent bodies and training providers from VET and HE who want to promote sustainable advancement from VET to HE by establishing new partnerships between VET and HE providers for developing learning paths for students progressing from VET to HE.

Area of application
The VQTS model can be used in the context of transnational mobility and in teh context of progression (permeability) from VET to HE.
Illustrative examples that are included in the different parts of this text or made available at the website (www.VocationalQualification.net) arise from the previously mentioned particular fields (‘mechatronics’ and ‘electronics/electrical engineering’). However, the VQTS model can also be used for describing and comparing competences in other fields.
