Aims and objectives: 
The general aim of this course is to foster excellence in education by equipping teachers, technitian and school managers with the needed knowledge and competencies to effectively apply the ECVET principles and technical specifications and proceed with the validation and recognition of the learning outcomes acquired abroad.

At the end of the training course, participants will be able to: - Develop a greater understanding on ECVET principals and technical specifications for its practical implementation; - Link ECVET with other European tools; - Apply ECVET in the context of the European mobility of I-VET learners with formal learning purposes; - Apply on practice a pedagogical circuit on the processes of identification, recognition, validation and certification of learning outcomes acquired by I-VET learners in the context of a European mobility with learning purposes. - Use practical tools for ECVET implementation; - Exchange best practices and share experiences with participants and staff coming throughout Europe; - Network with individuals and organizations working with European mobility projects for VET learners through everyday cooperation and team-building activities.
Recognition/certification of participation: 
At the end of the course, each participant will be awarded a certificate of attendance, together - if requested - with the Europass Mobility Certificate. We support the participants in every step of certification and validation of learning outcomes with specific focus on European tools and Erasmus plus requirements such as staff mobility/learning agreement, quality commitment and Europass mobility certificate. We experienced that schools and education organizations may require additional documents to certify the competences learned or the presence in the training course. Upon detailed request we can provide those documents as well as we provide photos of the training course and a sum-up video that can be used for visibility and dissemination purposes.
