According to plan all Project partners from France, Belgium, Slovakia, Germany and the Czech Republic have met from 21-01-2016 to 22-01-2016 to the penultimate transnational Project meeting in Brussels.
The reports from the partners of the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Germany about the second testing of the developed curriculum for the Training of BdC counsellors were the first focus. These results formed the basis for the discussion of the further monitoring and certification process. Each Training-participant will implement 3 BdCs in the next 5 months and is thereby actively supported by the Trainer. He checks, if the participant has understood the nature and is able to use it. With the help of the existing results, will be decided at the national level, whether the FECBOP can apply for a certification.
The necessary considerations and provisions for the publication of the curriculum were another focus at the meeting.For this purpose, the partners agreed on a uniform structure and the use of uniform templates (in the presentation of the modules and its components) and terms.
These conditions will be created in the next few weeks, so afterwards the Partners are able to finalise „their parts“ of the curriculum. The aim is the availability of the English version of the curriculum in the middle of May.
After that, Paolo Serreri and Emanuela Proietti from the Italian Partner Uni Roma 3 presented the work status regarding Output 3 – the classification of the Training into the European Qualifications Framework (EQF). For that, they explained the nature and the role of the EQF and its 8 levels as well as the connections to the National Qualifications Framework in each country and to the ECVET. Thereby they particularly pointed out the important role of the learning results (presented as knowledge, abilities and competences).
The further steps are now that a classification for the purpose of training in the EQF by/at the University Roma 3 should be requested using the final release of the curriculum.
