Description The aim is to identify the potential career paths, where a captain may be employed ashore using to a high degree his/her competencies acquired through education, training or non-formal learning on-the-job. To this end we will organise focus groups of 10-15 captains in which they will discuss the findings of wp1 and suggest the most adequate alternative career paths. Partners will discuss them in the second transnational meeting and will conclude in the career paths to further explore. These have to be at least 10. A first approach is: port captains, employees in shipping companies, managers, personnel directors, teachers, entrepreneurs, quality managers, health and safety managers, auditors, coast guard officers, jobs related to environment protection, advisors, etc. Also we will find preferably captains or other professionals that work in the career paths selected and interview them on their jobs. The target is 10 interviews per partner or 50 interviews as a whole. Subjects of the interviews will include interests, skills, knowledge, physical conditions and personal features. Interviews will be video-recorded and fragments of them will be uploaded on the platform (and subtitled). At the end we will develop the path profiles including tasks of the job, qualifications/ skills/competencies required, work conditions and requirements, health issues etc.
