BANKING & INSURANCE & FINANCIAL NETWORK - Promoting Recognition of Learning Outcomes through ECVET System
Start date: Nov 1, 2009,
The project B.I.F. Network intends to promote the application of ECVET to the training provision of the Banking, Insurance and Financial Services sector. The project is designed to raise awareness and build a path for progressive adoption of the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) in order to facilitate the international transfer, accumulation and recognition of individual’s learning outcomes starting from the BIF services. B.I.F project aims to respond to ECVET objectives - facilitation of the mobility of the individuals involved in a training pathway, assessment and validation of learning outcomes achieved in lifelong learning, transparency of qualifications and the mutual trust and cooperation among stakeholders involved in VET in Europe - providing a valid network of professional organisations in the BIT, a set of tools and a guidance to reach these objectives and facilitate the transition. EBTN is the most relevant training association in Europe for the BIF sectors: its existing network combined with the experience acquired in previous project will facilitate a wide adoption of the ECVET system. The BIF project aims also to offer a complete overview of the present adoption of the ECVET system throughout Europe in the BIF sector, a methodology for assigning ECVET points to existing qualifications and, in order to facilitate this adoption, two easy to use tools: one for orientation of potential users in the ECVET system (Users Guide) and a ECVET points attribution Vademecum for training professionals and expert to design programmes according to ECVET requirements. Through the adoption of the ECVET system, the BIF sectors will be able to rely on a higher degree of transparency and quality assurance of training supply and qualifications.
