Call for Proposals on the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET)

Credit System


The Call for Proposals EACEA/08/2010 to support national projects to test and develop the credit system for vocational education and training was published by the EACEA.
The design and development of the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) is one of the priorities for cooperation in the field of vocational education and training (VET), as is implementation of the European Qualifications Framework (EQF), of which the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) is one of the cornerstones.
The European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) is intended for young people undertaking initial vocational training, apprentices, adults in continuing training and, more generally, anyone on formal, non-formal or informal learning paths.

The European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training ECVET is made up of three inseparable technical aspects:
- the description of qualifications in terms of learning outcomes, organised in units;
- the existence of a learning outcome assessment process;
- the use of a credit system based on ECVET points for qualifications and units of learning outcomes.

The adoption and implementation of the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training ECVET technical specifications therefore relate to qualifications or qualification systems or frameworks.

The purpose of the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training Call for proposals is to award grants for the organization of two types of action that must be combined into one project, namely:
- actions to set up or consolidate partnerships between institutions to develop tests on the European Credit System;
- actions in the field of the European Credit System in order to apply and implement it in concrete terms.

Proposals submitted in response to this call will be based on the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training technical specifications and should cover all the following objectives:
1) Implementation of the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training technical specifications
2) Assistance with pooling and consolidating the work and outcomes of all the
proposals selected under this call for proposals
3) Use of operational partnerships with expertise in European Credit System

The total budget allocated for the co-financing of projects under the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training call for proposals is 2.000.000 euro. The Agency’s financial assistance will not exceed 75% of the total eligible costs. The amount of the funding granted per project will be between 50 000 and 300 000 euro.

The deadline for the submission of a project proposal is 16th July 2010.
