3 RD WORKSHOP ON TESTING THE EQF Building synergies and common understanding The case of sustainable professionalization Cedefop, Thessaloniki, 15-16 December 2010 Fabrizio Lamberti Slide 2 Agenda Introduction Selected experiences: a common thread Links with sustainable professionalization The HELEN vision: how to link qualification systems The role of the EQF From HELEN to SESAMO The TIPTOE methodology: semantics and EQF in the trade sector The MATCH project: facilitating social inclusion (job seeking) Heterogeneity and formalization Methodologies to define qualifications From structure to content Slide 3 Selected experiences: a common thread -VET PROFESSIONAL Vocational education training to professionals for an European solid space of collaboration and learning (I/05/B/F/PP- 154149) -EASCMF European automotive sector competence meta-framework - A contribution to the support of compatibilty of a sector related qualification framework with national structures and the EQF (2006- 4584/001-001) -HELEN The European learning network (I/04/B/F/NT-154056) -SESAMO Simulating the implementation and supporting the start-up by exploiting HELEN and BEATRIC semantic models regarding ECVET (LLP-LDV/TOI/2007/IT/188) -ORSA MINORE Organizzazione delle certificazioni con applicazione di smart card nei mestieri e nelle innovazioni del maRE (I/06/B/F/PP- 154178) -TIPTOE Testing and Implementing EQF- and ECVET-Principles in Trade Organizations and Education (NL/08/LLP-LdV/TOI/123011) -MATCH Informal and non-formal competences matching device for migrants' employability and active citizenship (510739-LLP-1-2010-1-IT- GRUNDTVIG-GMP) Slide 4 The starting point -VET PROFESSIONAL Vocational education training to professionals for an European solid space of collaboration and learning (I/05/B/F/PP- 154149) -EASCMF European automotive sector competence meta-framework - A contribution to the support of compatibilty of a sector related qualification framework with national structures and the EQF (2006- 4584/001-001) -HELEN The European learning network (I/04/B/F/NT-154056) -SESAMO Simulating the implementation and supporting the start-up by exploiting HELEN and BEATRIC semantic models regarding ECVET (LLP-LDV/TOI/2007/IT/188) -ORSA MINORE Organizzazione delle certificazioni con applicazione di smart card nei mestieri e nelle innovazioni del maRE (I/06/B/F/PP- 154178) -TIPTOE Testing and Implementing EQF- and ECVET-Principles in Trade Organizations and Education (NL/08/LLP-LdV/TOI/123011) -MATCH Informal and non-formal competences matching device for migrants' employability and active citizenship (510739-LLP-1-2010-1-IT- GRUNDTVIG-GMP) Slide 5 Methodologies to define qualifications Initial experiences built onto the sustainable professionalization approach -by analyzing national profiles, and -by using their core elements as building blocks -reaching an agreement on a methodology -building international profiles or catalogues of qualifications, competences Outcomes -networks with strong stakeholders involvement -methodology and results shared among the consortium -to be regarded as feasible examples to be exploited in other contexts Problems encountered -marked differences between countries and sectors Slide 6 Heterogeneity issues: some examples Italy -Competences: express the concept the learner is able to -Contents: expressed in terms of the learner needs to knows how to, connected to the principles, notions, methods from which the knows how to derives -Descriptors: assessment criteria, based on the concept of the learner should demonstrate to, according to a defined level of difficulty -Fundamental activities, specific activities, indicators, etc. France -Functions: set of individual/enterprise activities, which concur toward a same goal -Vocational activities: set of tasks part of a work process -Vocational tasks: set of elementary operations carried out to come to the prescribed result -Professionnal skills: describe the actions which are carried out concretely in professional situations -Savoir faire, savoir associ, comptence professionnelle/terminale, etc. Even when the same terms are used (e.g. competence), great differences in meaning and connotations exist, but often remain under the surface Slide 7 Evolution -VET PROFESSIONAL Vocational education training to professionals for an European solid space of collaboration and learning (I/05/B/F/PP- 154149) -EASCMF European automotive sector competence meta-framework - A contribution to the support of compatibilty of a sector related qualification framework with national structures and the EQF (2006- 4584/001-001) -HELEN The European learning network (I/04/B/F/NT-154056) -SESAMO Simulating the implementation and supporting the start-up by exploiting HELEN and BEATRIC semantic models regarding ECVET (LLP-LDV/TOI/2007/IT/188) -ORSA MINORE Organizzazione delle certificazioni con applicazione di smart card nei mestieri e nelle innovazioni del maRE (I/06/B/F/PP- 154178) -TIPTOE Testing and Implementing EQF- and ECVET-Principles in Trade Organizations and Education (NL/08/LLP-LdV/TOI/123011) -MATCH Informal and non-formal competences matching device for migrants' employability and active citizenship (510739-LLP-1-2010-1-IT- GRUNDTVIG-GMP) Slide 8 Goals of the HELEN network Means to promote interaction among standards of competences Heterogeneity issues addressed from the point of view of semantics Conceptual maps (models, ontologies) Support transparency by -formalizing the structure of national profiles -establishing links between (pairs of) national profiles (meta-ontology) Envisaged application scenarios -supporting mobility through comparability -creating common profiles Slide 9 The HELEN methodology: formalization Analysis of national qualification systems, certification modalities and credit recognition systems -regulations, standards, and frameworks at the national level Identification of study cases and collection of qualification profiles (country-sector perspective) Creation of a knowledge base Construction of the HELEN conceptual maps -Formal/unified/visual modeling language -Lexicon, shared understanding of the domains under analysis, main concepts/relations used in describing qualifications -Mutual trust focus on the meaning of concepts Slide 10 The HELEN methodology: an informal view Indicators Descriptor Content Unit of competence Competence Content Descriptor Indicators is able to needs to know how should demonstrate (to be capable of) (for each competence several descriptors are identified) the indicators are Competence Unit of competence + + Slide 11 HELEN maps (IFTS, Italy) Slide 12 HELEN maps (DESCO/CPC, France) Slide 13 The HELEN methodology: the meta-ontology Definition of linking mechanisms between models Semantic grids -conceptual maps compared to each other (in pairs) to reveal correspondences, similarities and differences between the models Formalization of the linking strategies into ontology-based meta-models -the HELEN linking ontology (formal linking rules) Aim -support mobility and transparency of qualifications by establishing mechanisms for referencing one system to the other at an abstract level, that is, at the model level (i.e. relations between concepts from national-based systems) -model-level links refined by exploiting indications from study cases (enhanced accuracy, evaluation of national profiles with respect to national definitions) Validation through study cases (content) and software platform Slide 14 One-to-one linking rules Slide 15 Dipl me Activit Fonction T che Comp tence professionnelle Comp tence terminale Crit re D valuation Savoir faire Conditions de r alisation Connaissance Savoir associ Figura professionale nazionale Profilo professionale regionale Attivit Attivit fondamentale Attivit specifica (individuata a livello regionale) Attivit specifica (individuata a livello di progetto) Unit capitalizzabile Unit capitalizzabile di base Unit capitalizzabile trasversale Unit capitalizzabile tecnico-professionale Unit capitalizzabile di profilo Competenza Contenuto Descrittore Indicatore France Italy Slide 16 One-to-one linking rules referencing meanings Slide 17 Validation of the link Slide 18 Indicators Descriptor Content Unit of competence Competence Content Descriptor Indicators is able to needs to know how should demonstrate (to be capable of) (for each competence several descriptors are identified) the indicators are Competence Unit of competence + + Connaissance (notions et concepts) Condition de ralisation Savoir faire Unit constitutive Comptence terminale Savoir faire Condition de ralisation Connaissance (notions et concepts) Critre d'valuation Comptence professionnelle Savoir associ Limite de connaissance Slide 19 Back to the heterogeneity issues Being addressed through -the creation of national and international professional and educational standards -the creation of a system for credits transfer -the development of specific tools in the context of the Europass portfolio (readability and capitalization of learning achievements and working experience) -the definition of a European framework supporting the comparability of qualifications Slide 20 Evolution of the methodology -VET PROFESSIONAL Vocational education training to professionals for an European solid space of collaboration and learning (I/05/B/F/PP- 154149) -EASCMF European automotive sector competence meta-framework -
