TRIFT (Transfer of innovation into the field of foreign trade - Innovationstransfer in des Berufsfeld Außenhandel)
The model of Vocational Qualification Transfer System -VQTS (LdV A/03/B/F/PP-158.034), developed for mechatronics have been transferred to the commercial sector and therein to the VET of professions of foreign trade. In the project:a) the competence matrix of VQTS including core competences and competence development units has been transferred into the professional area of foreign trade, b) selected model units of the matrix in students’ mobilities (separate mobility application) have been applied,c) outcome oriented assessemts-instruments have been developed,d) some national VET-programmes have been 'mapped' on the TRIFT competence matrix alongside with additional informaion.TRIFT has achieved the following goals:a) A competence matrix for the professional field 'foreign trade' based on the VQTS-model has been developed, which allows the allocation the competences in a common competence grid. Thus formal and informal learning can be displayed transparently and comprehensible – this may be a profit for persons responsible for VET, individuals and companies in this professional field.b) A basis for the description of Learning Units and/or Learning Agreements according to ECVET has been created for this professional field.c) Different national VET-profiles have been displayed (or 'mapped') in one common competence matrix.d) Mobilities of students have been completed; the competences gained in this internship have been tested through newly developed TRIFT-assessment-instruments on the basis of the TRIFT-competence matrix.Impacts: Standardisation of traineeships, thus progress in EQF and ECVET process, improvement of quality and higher efficiency of traineeships, higher recognition, mandatory assessment and certification.
