ClimaVET - New consortium applying for funding to transfer EURIAC results

Usurbilgo Lanbide Eskola in the Basque region, Spain.

A consortium of five European vocational institutions has contacted the EURIAC project to ask for permission to transfer and use the EURIAC ECVET products and process in a new Leonardo da Vinci Transfer of Innovation project. The consortium has applied for funding in the call 2013.

- We are of course very happy about the great interest we have received from other vocational schools and colleges in Europe. We hope that our experiences and results from the EURIAC project can support and inspire other schools to create international learning opportunities for students in VET. Pernilla Öhberg, the project manager of the EURIAC project, says.

The ClimaVET project was initiated by the Usurbilgo Lanbide Eskola in the Basque region in Spain. They have received information about EURIAC from the Politeknika Ikastegia Txorierri, the Basque partner in the EURIAC project.
The aim of the ClimaVET project is to create a common curriculum in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning installations (HVAC). As stated in the project outline: “This kind of maintenance is widely used and the way of working is very similar in every country. Therefore, it is a very positive situation for the mobility of students for academic and work purposes.”
The envisaged impact is to increase the mobility opportunities in VET and create closer cooperation and exchange of experience between VET providers in Europe.

The ClimaVET project will use the ECVET products and processes developed in the EURIAC project for both transparency and recognition of Learning Outcomes and Qualifications. The partnership will be made up of six experienced partners from five European countries – Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Spain and Finland, who are all especially interested in and able to achieve the aims of the project.  Four VET institutions (DE, DK, ES, and FI) with extensive expertise in VET training will pilot the project in their institutions in 2014-2015. One social partner (BE) will promote, disseminate, and exploit the ClimaVET ECVET process results via European and EU VET policy making channels.

- It is an interesting project and we have seen in the EURIAC project that both vocational students and the involved professionals and their organisations have so much to gain from international cooperation. We hope that the ClimaVET project receives the funding they need to carry out the project and we wish the ClimaVET team the best of luck! Pernilla Öhberg concludes.
