Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe


Workplace learning

EU4EU – European Universities for the EU – is the project which support the growth of European businesses and the access to employment of university trainees. You have time until the 29th of October  to register your organization and to access to the matching phase in which you will be able to choose the more suitable candidate for your organization’s needs.

The Norwegian Government has funded 7,5 million Norwegian Krones for training for employees in the healthcare sector. Changes and technology development happen very fast in this sector. More and more patients are been supported from the health care service at home, by use of various tools, such as safety alarms, electronic journals, automatic medical injection pumps and GPS. This demands an upskilling of the workforce in the health care sector.

 Accommodation and food sectors are one of those sectors that intermediate staff is needed the most. In terms of the health of society, the risk is higher compared to other sectors. In the lodging and food industry, control sheets are used to monitor the observance of secure food production during food production, food presentation, delivery and storage processes. EU standard businesses in the tourism sector need qualified staff who are able to produce and present the desired food. The aim of our project is to present a quality assurance system for hygiene and provide hygiene-conscious staff ensuring continuity of hygiene. The main goal of the project is to train and employ students studying in the fields of Accommodation and Travelling Services, and Food Technology as the qualified staff who may apply international hygiene standards, which is required for quality management system in the sector.

This blog summarises personal reflections on a professional development day spent with middle managers from three further education colleges looking at ‘developing a culture of excellence through collaboration’. The event was facilitated by Sue Keenan of Myerscough, Stef Wilkinson from Barnsley and Tam Breeze from Kendal who took the participants on a journey exploring curriculum, through organisational strategy to the importance of culture.

Implications arose for the practice of the managers themselves, those that support them and their partners both inside and outside their organisations.

4. nationale ECVET Konferenz „Mit Berufsbildung ganz nach oben. Weiterentwicklung der Höheren Berufsbildung in Österreich.“

Die Etablierung der Europäischen Transparenzinstrumente ECVET und NQR in Österreich hat das Thema „Höhere Berufsbildung“ in den Fokus der bildungspolitischen Diskussion gerückt. Noch ist der Begriff in Österreich nicht formal etabliert. Es gibt auch keine abschließende Einigung darüber, wie er definiert wird. Üblicherweise werden darunter jene Qualifikationen verstanden, die auf den höheren NQR-Niveaus angesiedelt sind und nicht zu einem Bologna-Abschluss (Bachelor, Master, PhD) führen.
