ECVET Permit

What is the ECVET PERMIT project about?

The project ECVET for Permeability and Transferability between the Non-Formal and Formal Vocational Education and Training System (ECVET PERMIT) aims to implement the European Credit system for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) methodology in the curricula of VET study programmes within the non-formal and formal VET system, at national and European level, in an effort to increase the permeability and transferability of the learning outcomes achieved within different learning contexts.

What is ECVET PERMIT project about?

The project ECVET for Permeability and Transferability between the Non-Formal and Formal VET System (ECVET PERMIT) aims to implement the European Credit system for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) methodology in the curricula of VET study programmes within the non-formal and formal VET system, at national and EU level, in an effort to increase the permeability and transferability of the learning outcomes achieved within different learning contexts.

Specifically, the project aims to apply the ECVET methodology for describing, assessing and validating learning outcomes in the VET study programmes of three non-formal technical specializations:

  • Electrician
  • Plumber
  • Automotive Mechanic

in order to test the transferability of credits from the non-formal to the formal VET system, firstly within the national boarders and secondly on a European level.

Specific Objectives:

The project implementation involves three specific objectives:

  1. To apply the ECVET methodology in a selected number of technical vocation programmes within the non-formal and formal VET system in three EU countries: Cyprus, Malta and Greece;
  2. To test the transferability of learning outcomes from the non-formal to the formal VET system at national and transnational level;
  3. To raise awareness about the benefits of the implementation of the ECVET system and promote the implementation of ECVET for permeability and transferability within the non-formal and formal VET system at national and European level.

The project aims are in line with the objectives & priorities of the Strategic Partnerships under the Erasmus+ programme and in particular:

  • To enhance the quality and relevance of the learning programmes in non-formal VET sector, by applying the ECVET methodology and facilitating the transfer of credits from non-formal to formal VET system at national and transnational level;
  • To facilitate the validation of non-formal learning and its permeability within formal education pathways.
