According to Italian law, regions and autonomous provinces are responsible for defining models of certification of skills achieved in non-formal and informal contexts.
This project aims to capitalise on previous experimentations in order to start a debate across regions at national level. The project will then identify common elements, instruments and transferable items to be considered in the implementation phase of models and systems at regional level.
The network will develop mutual learning events (Technical Panels, Focus Groups, Peer Analysis, Workshops, Seminars), which will take place over a year; a report describing all the experiences and representing regional certification systems developed in Italy; guidelines for policy makers and actors for the construction of a regional certification system; digital dissemination of the project deliverables/products (web portal, newsletter, web animation on social networks). At a national level, MCS will provide better information (to policy makers, actors, stakeholders, citizens) on opportunities offered by regional systems (in progress) for the certification of competences achieved in different contexts. At a regional level, MCS will provide the set-up of regional systems for certification of competences that are: - complete (skills acquired in all contexts: formal-no formal-informal); - recognised (models/devices methodologically sound); - correct (verification of competences using established, consistent and codified procedures); - transparent (products of process of attestation of competences will use references and languages shared).
