BRIDGES FROM GREY TO GREENING JOBS: MOVING FROM THE EQF AND ECVET PRINCIPLES TO EXPLOIT NEW EMPLOYMENT OPORTUNITIES
Start date: Oct 1, 2011,
The European Union is willing to achieve in 2020 a rate of employment of 75% in women and men between 20 and 64 years old, and to reduce the 20% of the emissions of greenhouse effect gases, with 20% of the consumption covered by renewable energies. For that, 3 million workers are necessary in jobs linked to sustainable growth. Severe lacks of specialists on management and on technical fields make these objectives difficult. CEDEFOP points out that the EU is a victim of systemic weaknesses in its competence base, which limits its productivity and competitiveness. Lifelong learning is a key to benefit from the green growth opportunities. Using EQF, ECVET and Europass European transparency tools is a priority. BRIDGES FROM GREY TO GREENING JOBS is aimed at contributing to the "European learning space" improving the transference and recognition of the learning and qualifications results through the European common tools. We plan to develop and experience a European device to recognise, transfer and capitalise knowledge - aptitudes - competences of the workers on key "renewable energies" to tackle the challenges of sustainable development. We expect to develop this device with the European common tools (EQF / ECVET) and with gender approach.
