The project focuses on modularisation in prevocational training. Modules are self-contained units in respect of content and time. They might be linked one to another to compose a set of skills and qualifications. The concept of modularisation is suitable especially for disadvantaged young people, since they are able to achieve a certificated qualification in a limited amount of time.
The comparably small units appear manageable and relatively easy to master and are therefore proper to motivate those who are tired of school. The concept is appropriate to contribute to their personal stabilisation and can lay the foundation for later steps in terms of qualification in the sense of lifelong learning.
The initial position is very miscellaneous in the different countries of the European Union. While modularization in prevocational training has been practiced in some countries for many years, others are just starting or have not started yet. Those countries working with modularisation are welcomed to share their experiences in the discussion.
Modularisation becomes increasingly a topic in vocational training. Accordingly there is a great need for transparency. The project aims at meeting those needs, therefore the responsible national institutions are expected to adopt the developed standards and assure valorization. It is Therfore those instituions important are included, that are concerned with certification and accredetation in vocational and prevocational training.
