Title Learning Outcomes Curriculum Mapping
Related assumptions and risks The consortium consists of experienced team members with the level of expertise required to successfully complete this activity. Risks are foreseen in the rigid system of Russian educational and professional standards with prescribed LOs, which will be hard to make more flexible for adjustment with stakeholders and industry.
Description Work Package Aims:

The mapping of the VET qualifications/courses in terms of leaning outcomes is the cornerstone of the ECVET conversion process. The aim of this activity is twofold:

·         to define the VET qualifications/courses expected learning outcomes according to the stakeholders input and evaluation;

·         to make the VET programmes transparent and comparable both at national and transnational level.

Methodology Description:

For this purpose the Activity will be implemented in three phases:

1st Phase: Stakeholder Input

Each of 8 HE/VET providers (5 in Russia and 3 in Uzbekistan) will receive input from national stakeholders for the finalization of Learning Outcomes – Knowledge – Skills – Competences (KSC) – for each pre-selected qualification/unit.

2nd Phase:

Compilation by the VET Providers of the detailed qualification profiles – using a common format/template. All Reports will be drafted in the national language. Selected parts will need to be translated in EN by the respective VET providers for transnational comparisons.

3rd Phase:

Compilation of a Qualifications Analysis Grid in terms of LO – comparative mapping report identifying areas of comparability by the WP leaders.

Since this process is similar by the ECTS process implemented by the Universities – two HE/Universities with prior experience in ECTS/learning outcomes curriculum mapping will be responsible for coordinating the activities. The EU Partners will offer their expertise and guidance accordingly.

Tasks Description of Core Tasks:

(1)    3- day Learning Outcomes – Curriculum Mapping Workshop following the 2nd SCM in Kokand/Uzbekistan(M8). Responsibility: NSPI(P10) & KSPI(P11) & UNIC (P1) & MCAST (P2)

(2)    VET Qualifications/Learning Outcomes Grid –comparison exercise (M16). Responsibility: VSU(P6) & NukSPI(P11).

Title Delivery of the Converted Qualifications/courses and Testing of the Personal Transcript Documentation of the Credit Transfer Process
Related assumptions and risks The consortium consists of experienced team members with the level of expertise required to successfully complete this activity. No risks are foreseen.
Description Work Package Aims:

The aim of this Activity is threefold:

(1) pilot delivery of the ECVET curricula within each VET provider level and receive evaluation feedback from key stakeholders/target groups;

(2) to test the process of credit transfer on commonly agreed pre-selected units at national level; and

(3) to develop a commonly agreed framework/approach for credit transfer.

Methodology Description:

The exact methodology to be followed will be the commonly agreed ECVET methodology which was developed in the previous packages (WP2, WP3, WP4). Overall, the approach can be described as follows:

The Partner Country consortium VET providers will test 2 selected units for transferability. A selected number of learners from each study programme will be then assessed and the LO will be recorded in the Personal Transcript (ECVET documentation). Each VET provider will complete 6 Personal Transcripts (i.e. 3 qualifications/units x 2 Learners). A total of 48 Personal Transcripts will be completed.

Testing of the credit transfer process will take place as follows:

·         National Level: Each HE/VET provider will evaluate a total number of 6 learners (personal transcripts) for credit transfer at national level. Credit Transfer testing will involve both horizontal transfer (i.e. within the VET sector) and vertical transfer (i.e. to the higher level sector.).

Based on the testing results/exercise a commonly agreed procedure/framework for credit transfer — will be developed according to ECVET specifications (documents).

Evaluation and Feedback: Each VET provider will distribute and collect evaluation questionnaires to the target groups (VET Trainers & Learners)  based on a template introduced by the WP6 Leader. The evaluation results will form the basis for the final adaptations in the ECVET implementation process and Master Guide.

Tasks Description of Core Tasks:

Analytically, the SC & TC members will be responsible for introducing a specific set of quality criteria/specifications for all major outputs. Quality criteria indicators and evaluation criteria will be discussed and agreed in two parts: during the SC & TC during the kick-off meeting (M2) and 2nd progress meeting (M8) – while they will be reviewed and updated in each transnational meeting.

The WP Leaders (MIIGAiK/P8 & NukSPI/P10) will then develop a concise and practical Quality Assurance & Evaluation Plan which will need to be implemented by all partners. The Steering Committee & TC members will serve as the Quality Review Mechanism (QRM) responsible for reviewing and evaluating project results and providing partner feedback on an on-going basis.

External Evaluation:

External Evaluation: An external evaluator will be subcontracted to carry out an External Evaluation Interim and Final Report, looking at both outputs and processes. This includes project management, communication and collaboration, and the number and quality of outputs and outcomes. The project evaluation criteria against which the project will be evaluated are as follows: Impact, Sustainability, Effectiveness, and Validity. An Interim Progress Evaluation Report and a Final Evaluation Report will be produced at the end which will be communicated to EU officials.

Work package type and ref.nr DISSEMINATION & EXPLOITATION 8
Title RUECVET Dissemination and Exploitation Campaign
Related assumptions and risks The consortium consists of experienced team members with the level of expertise required to successfully complete this activity. Risks are foreseen in the lack of involvement of HE&VET Institutions.
Description Aims of the Work Package:

This activity is broken down into 2 distinct but highly related and inter-linked activities, with the following aims:

A. Dissemination and ECVET Awareness Campaign:

  • the implementation of a targeted dissemination activity in order to create visibility and strengthen the impact of the project and its outcomes on a Partner Country and European level;
  • to raise awareness regarding the ECVET benefits for VET, the industry and labour force, and society in general – targeting HE, VET providers, Industry Stakeholders and Policy Makers

B. Exploitation and Sustainability Plan

·         the exploitation and transferability of project results to otter HE/VET providers across the Partner Countries with the overall aim of transferring and adopting the ECVET system on a national level in the two Partner Countries.

Methodology Description:

A highly targeted Dissemination & Exploitation Action Plan will be prepared from the onset while the Exploitation Plan will undergo further adaptations during the project progress. Generally speaking the exploitation and sustainability plan will move to centre stage in the last 12 months of the project duration when project results are ready.

The responsibility for actual targeted dissemination and awareness raising on the Partner Country level will lie with the all the national partners. In addition the Programme Countries (Cyprus, Malta, Slovakia) will have the responsibility for dissemination at national level and in Europe in general –through EU forums such as EfVET, PROVET, ECVET Team etc. The key involvement and on-going consultation of the core partners with national stakeholders (WP3) will be utilized accordingly. Special emphasis will be paid on creating the necessary project links with other relevant national and EU initiatives (ECVET Team, ECVET National Experts etc.)

The exploitation activities will culminate in the development of 4 ECVET National Training Centres – 2 in Russia (RSVPU/P4, TSU/P5) and 2 in Uzbekistan (NukSPI/P9, KSPI/P11). Each center will offer a dedicated and fully equipped professional training space for delivering ECVET Training workshops under the instruction of trained instructors who have participated in the RUECVET project. Information about the operation of the ECVET training centers will be published on the project’s website. These training centers will be the National ECVET Contact Points for ECVET information after the end of the project.

Special efforts will be done by RSVPU (P4) by disseminating project results and engaging members and of Russian Association for VET in workshops and other project activities.

Methods applied in order to ensure effective and efficient dissemination and exploitation are:

  • Management and exploitation of the significantly extended stakeholders and target audience contact databases that each partner brings into the consortium on a national and transnational level;
  • Target group identification and segmentation at Partner Country and European level;
  • Media Relations Kit (Press Releases & Important Developments) creating interest of the key stakeholders in Partner Country level and EU level;
  • 4 National ECVET Workshops at each Partner Country;
  • The development of the RUECVET network of National Contact Points;
  • Networking at EU level though the participation of 2 highly visible events (EfVET, PROVET etc).
Tasks Description of Core Tasks:

(1)   Development of a Dissemination & Exploitation Action Plan (M4) & Updated Exploitation Plan (M24); Responsibility: RSVPU (P4) & KSPI(P11).

(2)   Compilation of a target group & stakeholders database with identified target groups at national and European level which will be updated throughout project duration. (M4). Responsibility: All partners.
