In the two examples given below, we can see the range of organisations involved in implementing ECVET:

 

Finland

In Finland, the implementation of ECVET in mobility begins with the Ministry of Education and Culture - responsible for educational legislation and for assigning credit points to qualifications - and the National Board of Education - responsible for qualifications requirements and for assigning credit points to individual units. Beyond this, and absolutely central to the mobility experience, individual Education and Training Providers are responsible for attributing credit points to parts of units and to individual learning outcomes, as well as for assessment and skills validation practices within their institutions - including for learners from other countries. For competence-based qualifications, with often more independent learning paths, Qualifications Committees take responsibility for the formal recognition of achieved competence and for the issuing of qualifications, albeit with a need to agree in advance on mechanisms for the recognition of competences assessed abroad.

 

Netherlands

In the Netherlands, several stakeholders are involved in ECVET and geographical mobility. The Ministry of Education, Culture and Science sets the governance and legislative structure for educationVocational qualifications are managed by centres of expertise (branch-related, competent bodies that feature stakeholders from different occupational fields) whose role is to develop and maintain qualifications and to accredit and ensure sufficient workplaces for VET students. Beyond this, individual vocational education and training institutions are responsible for curriculum development, training delivery and for the assessment and validation of skills. In terms of assuring the quality of education, training and assessment, a national education inspectorate takes the lead, reporting directly to the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science.

In the ECVET Projects website a number of useful videos are provided in which an overview is given of the three mobility phases.

 

The ECVET Step by Step video also provides some useful examples (in Finnish).

 

Additional example of Learning Outcomes from the Foodpro project

NETINVET - a network that brings together training centres from 10 EU countries that are keen to develop high quality mobility for learners. The network model itself can be seen as a model for others, and network members also implement ECVET as a part of delivering mobility.
