Title Training contents for the recognition of competences in the renewable energy sector in the EU
Product Type material for open learning
Marketing Text In order to get valuable training contents addressed towards the target group related to the recognition of competences in the renewed energy sector in the EU, a complete set of training contents was developed, aiming at being used through e-learning. The material pursued (and achieved) the following aims: To present the different European elements related to the recognition of professional competences and the accreditation of the qualifications of workers; To collect the information about the recognition and accreditation of professional competences of workers in the sector at European level; To provide the different actors of the training process in the sector with teaching material related to the recognition of professional competences of workers; To systematize good practices and experiences found in the project countries which can be applied to the recognition and accreditation of the competences of low-skilled workers in the sector.
The contents have been divided into modules and each module has, in turn, been divided into didactic units. The minimum contents have been the same for all countries, always taking a European perspective in its development. Each module has included an Introduction and a Final Summary. Here's the structure of the training contents:
Module 1. European Qualifications Framework (EQF)
EQF: descriptors and levels.
Tools: Europass, Language Passport, ECVET
Module 2. Professional qualifications: situation in Italy, France, Germany, Poland and Spain
Module 3. Professional competences in the renewable energy sector
Besides, the following elements were also included:
Self-Assessment. Each module included a self-assessment, 5 questions with 3 closed-response alternatives.
Final Evaluation. It consisted of 10 questions, with 3 closed-response alternatives.
Quality Questionnaire. To get the opinions of the participant in relation to both the contents and the other elements included in the pilot experience: platform, role of the tutor, course organization, etc.
Additional Documentation: Glossary of terms, Bibliography related to the pilot course syllabus, legislation, and links to pages, organizations, institutions, etc., have been included in this section, as they may be useful and relevant to complement the implemented contents.
Target group The target group of the developed training contents have been training managers of public administrations, companies, training centres and social partners, tutors / trainers, training policy makers, etc.
The developed training contents have been edited into a Moodle open source platform and have been used for the development of the on-line pilot experience held in the last part of the project. Each project country has held the course with national participants.
The main result has been the possibility to increase the qualification level of the workers in this sector; opportunities for reconversion for workers of the traditional energy sector into the renewable energy subsector; increase of mobility; more transparency of professional qualifications and the labour market.
