Product Type description of new occupation profiles
Marketing Text The State-of-the-art Survey aims at FINDING OUT WHAT HAS BEEN DONE SO FAR The project will make a study concerning VET schools and institutes: what are the best practices; what kind of systems of recognising non- formal and informal learning exists in partner countries; what kind of qualifications and needs do professionals in charge of international and intercultural activities have. This will be the basis of our project’s work towards promoting a systematic development of international cooperation and intercultural dialogue in VET institutes
The survey consists of partner countries'
1) national reports, in which the international coordinators or international development officers of the respective countries give information concerning the characteristics, skills and training needs of their professional group. This information is then summarised as the profile of the International Development Officer.
2) Interviews conducted in partner countries. The interviewees were experienced international activities developers. The interviews were summarised as IDO Skills Set Transnational Report.
Target group Teachers and trainers working as international activities developers or planners or international coordinators have a great responsibility of developing international activities. They are experienced professionals who have acquired lots of informal and non-formal learning during their careers, besides their basic formal education. The IDOL will give them the possibility to validate their informal and non-formal learning and the competences they have by creating a set of competence-based qualifications of International Development Officer.

Area of application THE MAIN AIM is to find a solution to the changing role of teachers and trainers in VET through recognition and accreditation of non-formal and informal learning by creating an integrated European system of identifying, assessing and recognising vocational competence-based qualifications of International Development Officer (IDO). Promotion of the professional status of teachers and trainers now in charge of international education and activities in schools will be an innovation that gives structure and sustainability to international cooperation practice and development in vocational education and training, both for the teachers/trainers working as international development officers and through them to their students.
