The partners of the Easy ECVET project, cofunded by the Erasmus+ programme, met at IES La Rosaleda in Malaga (Spain) on March 14th to 16th, 2023. It aimed to share the first results of the testing phase of the tools created for the regonition of learning outcomes of European and International mobility experiences among the partner organisations: the grid integrated to the Learning Agreement, with the objective of assessing pre-defined technical skills, as well as the Open Badges, which purpose is to recognise soft skills related to working situations.
While the grid integrated to the Learning Agreement seemed to be easy to implement, it was more of a challenge for the Open Badges, as they are not very well known by learners, companies and trainers. A communication campaign will need to be held in order to develop their use.
In addition to that, it was suggested that the Erasmus+ Agency take charge of the Open Badges for a wider and systematic diffusion and use.
