NARIC On-line Training Course “Evaluation of Foreign Courses, Diplomas and Qualifications”
Start date: Feb 1, 2012,
• Project description: The NARIC On-line Course for credential evaluators was developed by the Dutch NARIC in 2004 and has been provided annually ever since. The Dutch NARIC will be responsible for this project, which will include a contribution from the French NARIC. Activities will be divided into 2 stages: the research and revision stage until March 2012/March 2013, and the actual delivery of the on-line course from March till June 2012/2013. For a description of the 2012-13 version of the on-line course, see section 5.1 of this application form.• Target groups :The course is primarily intended for staff of NARIC/ENIC offices with limited experience in credential evaluation and the recognition of qualifications, but the last two modules may also be of interest to professionals in the field with more experience. • Impact:The on-line course aims to improve the recognition of diplomas and study periods by providing participants with background knowledge on best practice in the field, based on the Lisbon Recognition Convention and the Bologna Process. Participants are given ample opportunity to apply and discuss recognition methodology on actual cases. Feedback from the course moderator helps ensure correct application of evaluation methodology. Participants work in groups as well as individually, and the group work encourages transnational networking and information exchange. Participants have found the course to be very useful in improving professional expertise and promoting contacts within the networks. Judging from the number of applicants, which increases each year, it's clear that the course continues to fulfil an ongoing need. Making a selection of modules available to colleagues who have more experience in the field of recognition also provides them with the opportunity of further developing their expertise.
