DİVET

Project Reference Number:

597878-EPP-1-2018-1-EL-EPPKA3-VET-JQ

About:

DİVET – Joint Qualification for Export Specialists Via Internet and Social Media is an Erasmus+ Project that will be implemented between periods December 2018- December 2020.

Exports are a main source of growth and jobs for the EU. However, nowadays there is a trend to digital economy which includes export. Nowadays, a growing number of sales and exports are organized online. VET systems have a problem to cope with this development and there are no stand-alone qualifications focusing on e-marketing (leave alone e-exports). Therefore, there is a need to develop the VET offer in order to prepare highly qualified professionals to work on internet based and social media exports.

This project aims to develop the skills of young people interested to work in the field of internet based and social media exports in order to on the one hand to increase their employability and on the other hand to provide to enterprises trained professionals which posses the necessary skills to cover the needs. In order to achieve this objective, the project is going to develop a joint qualification between 3 VET organisations focusing on internet based and social media sales since a 3-month apprenticeship period will be a pre-condition in order to complete successfully the course. A joint qualification profile is going to be developed in cooperation with enterprises and sector representatives and is going to be referenced to European Qualifications Framework (EQF). On the basis of the joint qualification profile, a joint curriculum is going to be developed as well as assessment standards in order to achieve at the end of the course a fully recognized qualification. In parallel, quality assurance mechanisms are going to developed in order to increase the cooperation and coordination between the institutions involved and in order to ensure the quality both of the classroom based and work based learning. The entire model is going to be piloted for the academic year 2019-2020. During this piloting implementation, it is expected to involve 80 VET students and 80 SMEs working in the field of exports and willing to follow the digital swift. At the end of the project, it is expected that the VET students will increase significantly their knowledge, skills and competencies in the sector and that the SMEs will be more engaged in apprenticeship and will be able to find more easily employees with the required skills.
