ECVET Conference WS2
Transcript of ECVET Conference WS2
the starting point
... to facilitate recognition of competences gained in different contexts and learning settings by people working in the field of personal care and being mobile across Europe
... to facilitate labour market integration for foreign people willing to work (with a recognised qualification) in the personal care and social work sector
adaptation of an already existing system of vocational qualifications in the field of personal care and social work (Regional Framework of Professional Standards of the Lombardy Region) in coherence with the ECVET framework, along with the testing and development of relevant tools for the application of ECVET principles and specifications
In Italy there are more than 693.000 personal care workers, of which 619.000 foreigners with heterogeneous qualification levels. Due to the raising request of personal care services, Lombardy Region hosts more than 100.000 foreign people working in the sector of which 66% from Eastern Europe (Romania, Poland, Moldavia, Ukraine). More than 42% of them are older than 50 years, and after an average stay of five years in the Lombardy Region, they go back to their countries without any certification of past learning and experience, achieved both in native countries or in Italy
The Italian legislation, in particular with regard to the validation of competences acquired in informal and non formal contexts, is evolving. A new national framework is being settled (legislative decree nr. 13, 16 January 2013) although some frameworks already exist at the regional level. In some of the participating countries the framework is already developed, and this was inspirational for the project
Karol arrives in Italy and wants to work as family assistant. He has a similar professional qualification as care assistant and some working experience in his country, and he starts working for a family by taking care of an old person at her home
The family assistant professional profile in Italy is composed by 3 Units of Learning Outcomes and the qualification corresponds to 60 ECVET points
Karol decides to undertake the I CARE tests for certifying his competences and finalising the training path needed for acquiring the qualification. He undertakes both theoretical and practical tests. The assessment is positive for almost all competences required, but he does not obtain sufficient scores for three specific skills, and he is missing some specific competences linked to the characteristics of the Italian profile
Missing competences to be integrated through an additional training action
Competences assessed with insufficient scores
and to be integrated through an additional
Competences which are already possessed by
assessed competences to which ECVET points are attributed
competences assessed negatively for which additional training is needed
missing competences to be acquired through a targeted training
formal qualification recognised in the Italian labour market
Professional profiles are described through LOs using complete sentences and examples resulting from field observation and interviews with practitioners
Different competence steps are used whenever they help in describing a professional profile (and to allow transition from one qualification to another)
Based on empirically derived work tasks
Opened to changes to be linked to labour market changing needs
The candidate is required to simulate the fundamental actions asked by the assessor and to use the relevant instruments, and where needed a dummy
The candidate is required to explain to the assessor the fundamental actions accomplished
MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS
A set of questions with technical content are proposed to the candidate for assessing technical/specific knowledge and competences
A situation is described to the candidate who has to answer if this is true/false
at the end of this process, competences are mapped and assessed, gaps identified for acquiring the missing LOs can be planned
