The Life Online project is a project that is being developed to improve employability through an online learning platform. Through the development of a new employability and entrepreneurship course unit of e-learning materials for use before, during and after mobility, participants will develop their international and soft skills such as team work and intercultural understanding to improve their employability.

Agricultural Alliance for Competence and Skills based Training (ACT project) aims to establish a strong connection between a sizable ecosystem: job seekers, job providers and training opportunities, in the agriculture sector, such there is a demand of qualified employees and a weak connection among job providers, job seekers and training programs. At this point, ACT aims at establishing and sustaining an Alliance for competences and skills based vocational education and training (VET) in agriculture. The motivation behind this, is to respond to the demand for lifelong-learning in the agricultural sector, facing environmental (Climate change and biodiversity loss), economic, social and territorial challenges, as well as EU directive reforms (Common Agricultural Policy (CAP)).
 
ACT Mission is to support and improve farming business by developing tools for defining competences on agricultural innovations and management. Consequently, ACT vision is to help the farming business to face current and future challenges, by providing innovative tools and establishing competence based vocational education
and training in agriculture. Taking these into account, ACT main scope is to improve the competitiveness of European farming.

One of Cedefop’s main priorities is to support EU Member States and social partners in further developing and improving vocational education and training (VET) and lifelong learning policies and practices. To be able to do this systematically, Cedefop has launched a series of policy learning forums on a range of subjects.

The aim is to establish a continuous process of sharing and learning where initial policy learning events are followed up through continued cooperation. Experts from 24 countries gathered in Thessaloniki on 24-25 September for the first forum, which addressed the way the learning outcomes principle and approach is used to define and describe VET qualifications across Europe.

The project ECVET for Permeability and Transferability between the Non-Formal and Formal VET System (ECVET PERMIT) aims to implement the European Credit system for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) methodology in the curricula of VET study programmes within the non-formal and formal VET system, at national and EU level, in an effort to increase the permeability and transferability of the learning outcomes achieved within different learning contexts.

Specifically, the project aims to apply the ECVET methodology for describing, assessing and validating learning outcomes in the VET study programmes of three non-formal technical specializations: plumber, automotive mechanic and electrician, in order to test the transferability of credits from the non-formal to the formal VET system, firstly within the national boarders and secondly on a European level.
