SEAL – Senior’s Learning Value – KICK OFF Meeting | TPM1 Rome 28-29/11/2019

SEAL | TPM1 | Rome

On 28 and 29 November 2019, the 1st Transnational Project Meeting for the SEAL Project kick off,  took place in Rome - Italy.
Partners started to strenghten their reciprocal knowledge and to share the first knowledge base of the main questions tackled in the SEAL Project.

As a first step the confrontations started with focus on the reference context of existing repertories of professional profiles and/or qualifications related to the CVET system available in each partners country, in order to identify any possible explicit or implicit reference to the (Senior) Learning Facilitator profile, that the partners will develop and redesign within a European Common Framework.

Given the framework available in each country for the specific - or similar - professional profiles or qualification, a second relevant point that was deepen together is related to the possible areas of intervention of the (Senior) Learning Facilitator inside the company (e.g. recruitment, tutorial support, assessment, recognition and validation of learning outcomes achieved through work experience, certification etc...) and outside the company with all related integrated services at local levels (VET providers; social partners, Trade Unions, professional organisations, Chambers of Commerce and representatives of the labour market; public/governmental administration stakeholders; social services, etc...).

Lastly, partners shared information about the typology of stakeholder that could be activated and involved in the project activities, assessing criteria for most appropriate ones that can support as key actors the development of specific SLF competences related to all areas of intervention of the professional profile.

The meeting provided a first framework within which each partner will be able to move for the development of the SLF profile, an opportunity to share a common baseline and identify eventual best practices against different levels of development of the specific area and, at the same time, advance part of the research work foreseen in the project for the development of IO1.
