European Coop Campus
Start date: 01 Nov 2012,

EUCoopCampus project addresses the learning needs within cooperative enterprises which represent a form of “responsible business” as recently acknowledged by the European Commission [COM(2011) 681], that may contribute to a more balanced and durable growth. Investing in managers’ continuous learning and training is crucial to support coop enterprises to face the current crisis and the new challenges of the globalized economy and socio-economic context, preserving coops’ unique democratic identity and maintaining coherence with coop principles & values. EUCoopCampus project aims to: increase members’ cooperative competences; implement ECVET to design a European job profile based on professional demands which will allow mutual recognition of the competences and validation of non-formal and informal coop learning; and better balance local needs with European opportunities. This implies fostering mobility to develop a European outlook and to better integrate learning with working needs using EU tools (EQF). To this end, the project develops an innovative application of ECVET tools centered on coop managers’ job profiles to provide coops with a transparent credit system that will enhance the weight of ethical competences and mobility and make learning pathways a valuable opportunity for personal and professional fulfillment. In this way, the project also puts the basis for internationalization and renovation of European cooperative systems and for transnational cooperation.Short term beneficiaries are cooperative managers, members, cooperative trainers; while long-term beneficiaries will be national and international cooperative organisations, VET providers, universities, research centers for the education & training.The partnership consists of coop systems , networking organisations & universities working with adult education coming from Italy, UK, Germany, Spain, Greece, Romania and France.
