CDN are delighted to announce that ECVET, a key partner in the Erasmus+ project, are providing free workshop on recognising your participants’ work placement activities within your current or future Erasmus+ mobility projects.

ECVET (European Credit transfer system for Vocational Education and Training)  enables the skills that participants gain whilst abroad to be validated against the individual’s learning outcomes in respect of the knowledge, skills and competences required to achieve a qualification or as part of their nonformal learning experience. The UK National Agency strongly recommends that organisations consider incorporating ECVET into their projects.

The UK ECVET Expert team will be carrying out a series of workshops in 2017 which will introduce you to ECVET and will provide you with knowledge and inspiration through a mix of case studies and interactive sessions as to how you can incorporate some of the principles of ECVET into your project. You will also have the opportunity to hear from other more experienced Erasmus+ mobility practitioners who will share their experiences.
