Project Type Transfer of Innovation
What holds you back from sending more young people and teaching staff abroad in Europe, to improve their abilities and skills to overtake ethic and national borders?
Is it the large amount of administration and the highly visible mountain of documents and instructions? The project „Q-mobil“ developed and transfered a holistic, practice related and easy to handle tool on the base of the EQAVET. This tool supports the process of planning, preparation, implementation and evaluation of European mobility and developed and transfered a European module of „Intercultural Training“.
Summary The increase ability to compete of the knowledge based European economic area, demands dynamic, well educated and intercultural educated people. In so far the strength of the European dimension of vocational education and training needs an improvement of quality. To support these processes the project „Q-mobil“ developed and transfered a holistic system of guidelines and criteria of quality, tools for their implementation and teaching and learning unites „Intercultural competence training, to improve quality of vocational education and training in a European process of transfer.
The improvement of quality of European mobility and so the increase of the benefit for participants were in the focus of all project activities. In comparison with European requests of quality of the EQAVET a holistic and practice related tool, which covers all phases of European mobility and their quality assurance has being developed and transfered. To reach that, all project partners contributed their documents used for organizing, implementing and evaluating mobility projects. In the actual phase of the project these documents were revised, adapted or new ones were developed. Parallel a module for „Intercultural competence training“ as an additional qualification has been developed. In the next step of the project the test of the toolbox “Q-mobil“ and the module „Intercultural competence training“ were implemented in European mobility in IVT, PLM and VETPRO. After evaluation of the relevance for practice partners the project consortium transfered the results on regional, national and European level. The project partners communicated and worked on the documents via a work platform (wikispace). Project progress is presented there. 6 Transnational meetings have been hold, in all participating countries. The international final conference was held in Dresden with partners, multipliers and practitioners.
The project website www.qmobil.eu supports the distribution and valorisation of all project outcomes which should not only be implemented in partner organisations amongst the consortium. Participants of the final conference (practitioners of European mobility) as well as stakeholder from all areas of vocational training (IHK and HWK) got an Q-mobile toolbox and the intercultural module.
The sustainable application of this learning and teaching unit is further guaranteed through certification by the chamber of industry and commerce (IHK). It will be certificated as further education course for trainers and part of a additional qualification of future sports and fitness managers and the accompanying, permanent integration into the German education and training system.
