Project Type Transfer of Innovation
Marketing Text MOVET focuses on transparency and acknowledgement of competences in a European context. Competences acquired within cross border modules going to be declared, certified and credited.
Summary MOVET explores a practical approach to a system ECVET. The modules for students end with an especially designed assessment of learning outcomes. Training providers, companies, competent bodies and other protagonists of vocational education validate the acquired learning outcomes as relevant for the training profile and award credit points. A memorandum of understanding of all involved partners serves as a basis for the acknowledgement of learning outcomes.
MOVET tackles the targets identified within the Copenhagen Process (amplification of the European dimension in vocational education, increased transparency, recognition of expertise, quality assurance). The principles of voluntariness, bottom-up-approach and active involvement of social partners have to be taken into account.
However, there are heterogeneous conditions and procedures for certifications and accreditation of vocational skills in the member states of the European union. The two diametrical fundamentals of subsidiarity and banned harmonization govern that domain.
Three VET schools (BSFT,TEC,POAM) from Germany, Denmark and Finland can draw on extensive experience from multiple mobilities. Within the framework of MOVET they analyze common learning outcomes from national curricula for mechatronics.
Each school designs a module in English. It is intended for three weeks, covering the topics PLC, Hydraulics and Bus systems. All three modules are located within the competence area 7 in the VQTS-matrix.
In the context of mobilites students from the European partner institutions complete the developed modules. The module courses are concluded by examinations which consist of a paper and pencil test and skills demonstration. Upon successful completion of the test, students are rewarded with a certificate. Skill sets, obtained during the module and stated in this certificate, will be recognized with regard to their content by German companies participating in the programme.
It is possible to implement a temporal recognition by Danish and a formal recognition by Finish schools.

Product information Learning material for realizing the three modules in Munich, Copenhagen and Pori were created. Modules in the field of mechatronics were developed and started. Exchange of trainees took place. Every trainee received a certificate and different kinds of recognition took place.
