ECOTOUR - Energy Efficiency Management In Tourism Industry

ECVET Model

Beside the innovative nature of the project in terms of educational products that it will be obtained (course materials, e-learning platform) which could  bring added value to the materials and educational tools, the project also aims to implement an ECVET model for a new qualification: the Energy Manager in Tourism. European Credit System for VET (ECVET) is a technical transfer, recognition and, where appropriate, the accumulation of learning outcomes in order to achieve a qualification.

The WP4 of the project is aimed at Identification of a methodology of implementation the ECVET System for the qualification of Tourism Energy Manager. The objectives assigned to this WP are to adapt a strategy for allocating credit points according to ECOTOUR project purposes and to implement it to the common reference units of Learning Outcomes produced.

The purpose is to envisage different possible scenarios for setting up a “recognized mobility” (ECVET) experimentation. The working package is aimed at advocating an organizational framework. The objective is to further set up the tools and framework to carry out a genuine ECVET Model, that will allow to validate, to adjust the envisaged solutions and tools produced.

The ECOTOUR ECVET Model  will be addressed to VET actors from different countries: trainers, teachers, professional, competent institutions, pedagogical advisers and training centre managers. Everybody will have the opportunity to express its point of view and to participate to the creation of the Units of Learning Outcomes dedicated to the qualification of Tourism Energy Manager.

The methodology will consist in adapt a strategy for allocating credit points according to ECOTOUR project purposes and to implement it to the common reference units of L.O. produced. Credit points will be allocated to common reference units, knowing that these units can be adapted in each national context and thus can not be found under exactly the same form in each national certification. The allocation will be based on the relative importance of each unit in comparison with the job profile concerned.

At the end of ECOTOUR project, within the work package dedicated to the exploitation of the results obtained through this project, the partners will work to develop an Occupational Standard - Tourism Energy Manager, document that will be carried out within the partnership of the project by using the occupational analysis made in WP3, that will be used both for elaboration of the ECVET model and for developing the Occupational Standard mentioned. After the end of the project, NERDA will initiate at the level of Romania, national approval procedures for the Occupational Standard, based on the Methodology of elaboration and review of occupational standards and professional qualifications adopted by the National Qualifications Authority. ECVET MODEL
