The project is positioned to pilot the implementation of European Credit Transfer System for VET (ECVET) in the national HE&VET system of Russia and Uzbekistan by creating a long-term platform on the base of acknowledged HEIs engaged in the training of VET teachers for post-secondary non-tertiary education level. The key idea of the project is to focus the study of theoretical bases of functioning of ECVET and mastering of practical experience in Program Countries on the necessity of Russia and Uzbekistan to have the compatible and comparable VET system that serves both horizontally (within VET) and vertically (from VET to HE) at national and transnational level. The basic ECVET features such as learning outcomes, credit transfer, etc. will be tested and adapted to legislative rules of the Partners Countries; results of the projects will be submitted to national Ministries of Education for approval and further implementation.
Potential beneficiaries of the project are HE & VET institutions, teachers & managers, VET facilitators (instructors, trainers) & VET learners, Industry, Education Policy Makers and the educational community and society at large in Russia and Uzbekistan.
The piloting ECVET is considered as a key measure for facilitating the flexibility and internationalization of VET in Russia and Uzbekistan – while at the same time contributing to the development of a common educational area encompassing both the HE& VET field between Europe and neighboring countries. The global impact of our project is modernization, accessibility and internationalization of the HE & VET area in Russia and Uzbekistan by enlarging visibility and transparency of the knowledge, skills and competence acquired by learners in Russia, Uzbekistan and EU.
